While being profound in the course of writing, I find myself very stagnant at times. My vocabulary is quite unimpressive, and you can tell because I had to look “profound” up.

it’s profound, the squiggles in the rug. the yellow in the trees. the jumper cable lips that i press against mine. the dusty mauve of spring. the szechuan chicken, made from scratch. the way your heart jumps when you realize you did something right, did something well.

It’s not difficult to be profound.
The word’s origins go back to the word Profundus, which means “Deep.” Actually Pro meaning “before” and “fundus” meaning “bottom.”
The question for me is, by “before” does that mean “as you approach the bottom from the top?” so “pro” is referring to the space right before you reach the very bottom? Or does it refer to a space *beyond* the bottom?
Something beyond the bottom…
Now that’s profound.

I gazed at the lake, unhappy with my life. The reflection of the sun on the water was beautiful, and gave it almost a orange tint. It’s marvelous, the things you notice when you’re alone. If I was with someone I might have said “Oh look, the sunrise is pretty” instead of noticing the little things.

there was a profound change in him. There was a strange indifference to him. Gone was the carefree child they had once known. Before them stood a young man, fierce and proud with little of the gentleness he once held. Gone was the innocent smile. The only smile they saw was the fierce grin as he brought the sword down.

she stumbled upon one of the world’s most profound truths while taking out the trash. she realized, in the midst of wheeling out a stinking pile of pizza boxes and unfinished homework assignments and candy wrappers, that life was too short to waste, and she was going to start making everything she could worthwhile. she’d take advantage of what she had–life, friends, family, brains–and live for the sake of living. she’d learn to live, that’s right; the most profound truth was simply to live.

Profoundness is our Earth
All people of our kind
Good and bad things come out amazing
Not always just the beauty
This whole thing comes off fruity
Shear destruction in our capable hands
It’s all profound when you come to think of it

“What a profound time of year.” She whispered, her fingernails digging into my skin. There were goosebumps there, but I still nodded, held her a little tighter. “All of the trees look as if they’re dying, but they’re still alive. It’s comforting.”

Profound seems to be an incredibly profound word. It provokes profound thoughts with which profound people do profound things. Sometimes the most profound thing to do, however, is something not so profound at all.
By Alex URL on 11.02.2011
Profound is another word for deep. It is often used in reference to a statement. For example one may say, “that was profound.” This means that they think there is a lot of meaning behind what you just said. It got them to think.

Hey, you! Yes, you! I have discovered something most incredible!
Crazy? No, I’m not crazy.

You birds make a terrible audience!

The doctor located the treasure. It was buried deep.

Profound reminds me of Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, God, and humanity but I’m not really even sure what that word means. Is it something great? Is it something interesting? What does profound even mean? Hmm….I have no idea. :)
By Crystal on 11.02.2011
You know, I really cannot think of a proper way to use this word right now. Is that profound? I just don’t know how to use it at the moment. I honestly just want to go and love on my husband more than anything right now.
By Laura on 11.02.2011
a statement uncommon
a bold act of wonder
the sound of laughter
and the thoughts of another
writer, scholar, learning doctor
the words you heard
that made you feel smarter
profound, it is
the statement compiled
beyond your average
using the best of knowledge
By lauren URL on 11.02.2011
There are many ways to use this word. It means huge, significant, or even insightful. (i.e. That was a very profound concert!)

Some people can be profound at times when they want or don’t want to be.It all depnds on that person.

She’s broken, she thinks to herself miserably, broken and battered and beaten down by this thing called love. This supposedly profound emotion that would change her life for the better. It’s taken over her thoughts, her vision, until all she can see is that sarcastic little smile; those sad, sad, sad eyes.
He’s not there, but she knows he wouldn’t have been thinking of her anyway — he may have changed her life forever, but she’s only another date, another night, another mistake, and she knows it.

So today I came upon the realization that I have become what I have despised for so long – I have become like them. I am a hypocrite, a fraud, a phony, a fake. I have become them.

Behind her timid smile and over-sized sweaters, there lay a girl who holds such profound beauty. Had only those around her been not so blind; had only they been able to recognize that she was full of aspirations, simply seeking the support to follow through.

seriously, I mean, seriously…like a religious conversion, that boy’s walk, didn’t even see his face. I just knew, in that single moment, the day after I turned 16, that I wasn’t a girl anymore. I was an acolyte.

“Wow” he said to her.
“No really, stop that!” she covered her binder and looked at the teacher
He looked at him too, a little torn with showing it to him or taking it from her and saying that he did it.
“It’s really…cool…” He laughed.
“Wow, so profound.”
By Maru on 11.02.2011
Life is profound. You will never understand why you have it, what will you do with it, and when will it end. Stop searching for meaning;just live it.
By Claire URL on 11.02.2011
it is utterly profound…the cold. how can you go beyond it? who can conquer it? submission is wearing winter clothes.
By Melody URL on 11.02.2011
it is a deep profound forest that seems to have no end. Yet, I still decided to plunge forward and seek a new adventure. What will I find i don’t know but i will find out.

we are all simple beings trying to be profound

when people speak in a certain voice and say things that sound so profound but really aren’t.
By courtney on 11.02.2011
How come people forgive when they’re not ready to let go? How can you forgive and not let go? You have to let go in order to forgive, right? Fake people are everywhere. Fake people are your best friends. Your neighbors. We all have a fake person inside of us that sometimes wants to take over.

The statements that we make in class, spilling words like “Oh, that’s so Kafka-esque” as Dr. Simel giggles like a southern woman.
“Oh, Peter,” she always says, blonde curls bouncing with her exaggerations. “That is SO profound.”
We smile behind our hands at her overenthusiastic ways, her online cats, and stories about her son’s nightly adventures.

Everything that I say now is profound. Everything I say to Mallory, all the time we spend talking at night, she is my beacon of hope. I look to her for help and for peace.

In these current times our actions and words are profound. So we must make them count. It is important to use your thoughts and actions for the greatest and highest good.

profound. this reminds me of roosters, but im not quite sure why. profound.
By lucinda URL on 11.02.2011
Many people don’t know what profound actually means. As a matter of fact, I don’t know what it means for sure, but that won’t stop me from writing about it, and even if I learned it now I’d forget instantly.

Profound–an interesting word. the professor was profound in his language. profound penguins plopped into icy water.
By Jessica URL on 11.02.2011
Beethoven. profound is the closest thing to divine for me. profound is the possibility of a heaven or god or salvation or cycle and release. but it can also be what is very close to home. the things here on earth. a child’s attention. that childhood which we’ve left behind. autumn, spring, the sun shining through fields of barley, trees, flowers framing your face. it can be accomplishment and ones realizing that they are exactly where they should be. a sense of rightness, of perfection. it also can simply be that which is overwhelming. but to sum it all up, profound is that which is simple and yet, seems much more vague and vast and impenetrable – like space. or is it that its the other way around?
By unbornsymphony URL on 11.02.2011
profound is the thinking of God who made this world the way it is. He gave us free will to willingly love him and not be zombies. He even gave us a out of our disobedience by giving us Jesus to shower mercy on us and rightfully clear us of our wrongdoing.
Thank you Lord

Its profound that profound is the word that showed up. profound means everything, everthing i want to know about is profound. i want to get lost in profound things. they make me happy. they make me tired.
By Jeff on 11.02.2011
when i think of the word profound I think of something that stands out from the rest. Whether that be good or bad. Profound is different, stands out in a crowd. bold. strong. tough.
