Usage examples for appropriateness

  1. And indeed Rosie's admiration was not surprising; she was the very Janet of old times; but she sat there in Fanny's handsome drawing- room, with as much appropriateness as she had ever sat in the manse kitchen long ago, and looked over the vases and elegant trifles on the centre- table to Graeme with as much ease and self- possession as if she had been " used with" fine things all her life, and had never held anxious counsels with her over jackets and trowsers, and little half- worn stockings and shoes. – Janet's Love and Service by Margaret M Robertson
  2. The appropriateness of the word romantic is still further emphasized by the consideration that, just as romantic art, romantic literature, and romantic music are a revolt against artificial rules and barriers to the free expression of feeling, so romantic love is a revolt against the obstacles to free matrimonial choice imposed by parental and social tyranny. – Primitive Love and Love-Stories by Henry Theophilus Finck
