Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Goldman Sachs:

  2. Bill Stone:

    You are in a place where the U.S. economy is a little softer, at least the data we are getting. I would argue it is still on solid footing, it is just we are in a bit of an ebb and the market is kind of ebbing with it a little bit.

  3. Seán O'Casey:

    Here, with whitened hair, desires failing, strength ebbing out of him, with the sun gone down and with only the serenity and the calm warning of the evening star left to him, he drank to Life, to all it had been, to what it was, to what it would be. Hurrah!

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Life is never static, and that's what I find most beautiful. It is beautiful, because of its ups and downs, twists and bends, roundabouts and straight roads, and ebbs and flows in general. Nothing is permanent, and only constant is the constant change. "Even this shall pass" is the mantra and a constant reminder for us, on every occasion when we feel excited with life's flows, and also in the darkest moments when we feel down and out with life's ebbs. The disappointments, betrayals, feelings of helplessness, being alone, all these will be ebbing away, as the life goes on. It's amazing how life can be so kind and good, and at the same time so bitter and cold....and yet everything shall pass. So enjoy today, and live this moment to the fullest, enjoying life's ebbs and flows.
