    • 2012, Jørgen Svenstrup, Du bliver hvad du tænker: Mentaltræning. Fjern hjernens spændetrøje, Gyldendal A/S (ISBN 9788702123852)
      Når hele første fase af mentaltræningen handler om at lære kroppen at spænde af, så indtræder det paradoks, at en besked om at spænde af automatisk vil medføre, at halvdelen af kroppens muskler alligevel ikke spænder af.
      When the entire first phase of the mental training is about teaching the body to relax, the oddity occurs, that a message to relax will lead automatically to half of the body's muscles not relaxing after all.
    • 2009, Per H. Hansen, Finn Juhl og hans hus, Gyldendal A/S (ISBN 9788702078077), page 60
      Det var den tætte dialog med Niels Vodder, der muliggjorde Finn Juhls møbler, og Juhl pegede selv på det paradoks, at han kunne udvikle og tegne en ny model på nogle få dage sammen med Niels Vodder, mens det kunne tage månedsvis med en møbelfabrikant.
      It was the close dialogue with Niels Vodder that facilitated Finn Juhl's furniture, and Juhl himself pointed out the fact that he could develop and draw a new model in a few days with Niels Vodder, while it could take months with a furniture manufacturer.
    • 2006, John Pedersen, Tvivl & tolerance: et skrift om Pierre Bayle, Museum Tusculanum Press (ISBN 9788763505024), page 105
      Og dét er i hvert fald et paradoks, at den dybt pessimistiske reformerte tænker fra sit refugium i Rotterdam var med til at udløse de franske filosoffers overvejelser om en såkaldt lykkemoral.
      And that is, at least, an ironic occurrence, that the deeply pessimistic reformed thinker [Pierre Bayle] from his refuge in Rotterdam played a part in kickstarting the French philosophers' considerations of a so-called happiness-moral [utilitarianism].
    • 2005, Det Moderne Mellemøsten, Gyldendal Uddannelse (ISBN 9788702026207), page 151
      Unægtelig et tankevækkende paradoks, at den officielle amerikanske politik, udtrykt i senatets udenrigspolitiske markeringer, bl.a. kritiserede den syriske støtte til Hizbollah, samtidig med at udenrigspolitikkens praktikere i administrationen arbejdede ganske tæt sammen med Damaskus i forsøg på at løse nogle af de problemer, som terrorgrupperne, herunder Hizbollah, skabte i Libanon.
      Irrefutably a thought-provoking paradox, that the official American politics, expressed through the foreign policy remarks of the senate, amongst other things critizised the Syrian support for Hizbollah, all the while the practicians of foreign politics in the administration worked closely with Damascus trying to solve some of the problems created in Libanon by the terror groups, among them Hizbollah.
