Examples of applies in a Sentence

  1. Carey Baker:

    It applies just as much today as it did over 200 years ago, the right to bear and keep those firearms -- that should never change. It truly is based on an individuals right to self-defense. If you have the right to defend yourself, your family, your country, you should have the means to do it.

  2. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker:

    Schengen (the passport-free travel zone) is one of the biggest achievements of the European integration process. Without Schengen, without the free movement of workers, without freedom of European citizens to travel, the euro makes no sense, and the same applies to the link between Schengen, freedom of movement and the internal market. If anybody wants to kill off Schengen, then ultimately what they are going to do is do away with the single market as well.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Can anyone really calm the Storm? It's not even worth trying, but surely one can calm oneself. And the Storm will pass. The same applies to various challenging and life-changing phases that one encounters unexpectedly. The reality is that nothing is forever, except those "Forever" postage stamps. Everything shall pass away, the good, the bad and the ugly too. All one can do is to stay calm and ride the storm, with complete and strong faith in God. It's true that sometimes, God brings the greatest rains with a storm; and likewise, God also brings the greatest blessings to you, with your difficulty.

  4. Aaron David Miller:
