Usage examples for Astoundingly

Everywhere are waving flags from golden spears, and little palms and shrubs in green tubs are arranged on either side of the Shamiana; and the effect is quite pretty; but considering the historic importance of the occasion and the natural suitability of the surroundings for a Royal landing, the conception and arrangement of spectacular effect was astoundingly poor-and it must be admitted it is a mistake to hide the principal actors at the most telling point of a momentous event with bunting and shrubs in pots, or both!
"From Edinburgh to India & Burmah"
William G. Burn Murdoch
The Canadian attack yesterday was astoundingly successful, and carried out by high-spirited men, the victors of Courcelette in the battles of the Somme, who had before the advance an utter and joyous confidence of victory.

  • France is the only nation in which astoundingly small numbers of civilized patrons reside.
    Gustave Courbet

  • Many of us are like Lotus flower that grows in the mud, and yet rises above the murkier muddy waters as an astoundingly beautiful flower, opening her petals one by one. The mud of adversities, challenges and obstacles don't stop her growth, but probably offer the nourishment and strength to rise above that mud. I often think that it's the strong desire, tenacity and perseverance of Lotus flower that must make her so unique in accomplishing way above and beyond the norms; because not everything that grows in the mud turns into an elegant Lotus flower. We must strive to build the same mental strength, perseverance and passion within - so as to grow above the mud of compelling circumstances, hardships, social rejections, and discriminations that we often experience in real world. Then only we will be able to transform into the eloquent Lotus flowers, gently opening our soft splendid petals one by one to make our world most beautiful.
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • Some people bear startling resemblance with lovely Lotus flowers that grow in the mud, and yet rise above the murkier waters as astoundingly beautiful flowers. The mud of adversities, challenges and obstacles doesn't stop their growth, but offers the nourishment and strength to rise above the dirt. I often think that it must be the strong desire, tenacity and perseverance of Lotus flower that makes her so unique in rising above and beyond the normal limitations. Lest we forget, not everything that grows in the mud turns into an elegant Lotus flower. In my view we must strive to develop the same mental strength, perseverance and passion within - so as to grow above the mud of compelling circumstances, hate, hardships, social rejections, and discriminations that we often encounter in the real world. Only then we'll be able to transform into eloquent Lotus flowers, gently opening our soft and supple petals one by one, to make our world most beautiful.
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • Consider the fact that for 3.8 billion years, a period of time older than the Earth's mountains and rivers and oceans, every one of your forebears on both sides has been attractive enough to find a mate, healthy enough to reproduce, and sufficiently blessed by fate and circumstances to live long enough to do so. Not one of your pertinent ancestors was squashed, devoured, drowned, starved, stranded, stuck fast, untimely wounded, or otherwise deflected from its life's quest of delivering a tiny charge of genetic material to the right partner at the right moment in order to perpetuate the only possible sequence of hereditary combinations that could result -- eventually, astoundingly, and all too briefly -- in you.
    Bill Bryson
