Examples of James in a Sentence

  1. Paul Whelan:

    Russia says it caught James Bond on a spy mission. In reality, they abducted Mr. Bean on holiday.

  2. Aretha Franklin:

    My aunt did not ask Jasper Williams Jr. to eulogize her before she passed away because dying is a topic that she never discussed with anyone, however, there were several people that my aunt admired that would have been outstanding individuals to deliver her eulogy including Dr. William J. Barber, Rev. Al Sharpton, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Rev. James Holley and Pastor E.L. Branch.

  3. Kaplan Thaler:

    We love the story of James Dyson. You see a guy who created this brilliant vacuum cleaner. It took him 15 years and he had 5,126 prototypes that ... didn't work, and we're not seeing that, all we're seeing are the end results and our kids are not seeing the sweat equity that goes into it.

  4. Bruce Wells:

    My hunch on the Ditka quote is that it comes from a quirk of the King James translation, ancient Hebrew had a particular way of saying things like, 'and the next thing that happened was...' The King James translators of the Old Testament consistently rendered this as 'and it came to pass.' '' When phantom Bible passages turn dangerous People may get verses wrong, but they also mangle plenty of well-known biblical stories as well. Two examples: The scripture never says a whale swallowed Jonah, the Old Testament prophet, nor did any New Testament passages say that three wise men visited baby Jesus, scholars say. Those details may seem minor, but scholars say one popular phantom Bible story stands above the rest: The Genesis story about the fall of humanity. Most people know the popular version - Satan in the guise of a serpent tempts Eve to pick the forbidden apple from the Tree of Life. It's been downhill ever since. But the story in the book of Genesis never places Satan in the Garden of Eden.

  5. Billie Eilish:

    It feels crazy to be a part of this in every way. To be able to score the theme song to a film that is part of such a legendary series is a huge honor. James Bond is the coolest film franchise ever to exist. I'm still in shock.
