Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Robert Bonhomme:

    T.R. Threston is like a rose. There are many complex layers of brilliance and sweetness, however, like the thorns of a rose she needs to be handled with care and respect. She is not to be toyed with but rather she is to be welcomed as a gift of joy and love, and, she will respond in kind ten times over.

  2. Olive Schreiner:

    From our earliest hour we have been taught that the thought of the heart, the shaping of the rain-cloud, the amount of wool that grows on a sheep's back, the length of a drought, and the growing of the corn, depend on nothing that moves immutable, at the heart of all things; but on the changeable will of a changeable being, whom our prayers can alter. To us, from the beginning, Nature has been but a poor plastic thing, to be toyed with this way or that, as man happens to please his deity or not; to go to church or not; to say his prayers right or not; to travel on a Sunday or not. Was it possible for us in an instant to see Nature as she is --the flowing vestment of an unchanging reality?
