Examples of bringing up in a Sentence

  1. Jerome K. Jerome:

  2. Jack Dorsey:

    [I] do understand the concern, we have folks that are at various points in the political spectrum and they don’t feel comfortable today bringing up certain issues or their viewpoints on certain issues. And I don’t believe that is acceptable.

  3. Matthew Dube (at weed thumb):

    The acceptance of complete responsibility, the giving up of all your excuses, is not easy. It’s one of the hardest things you ever attempt. That’s why most people never do it. When you desire success with the same intensity that you desire to breathe, then nothing will stop you from getting it. The only thing that stands inbetween you and your big dreams are the excuses you keep bringing up for not achieving. If you see yourself now as you wish to be, and you walk, talk, and behave as the very best person you can imagine yourself being, your dominant thoughts and goals will materialize as your reality.

  4. Donald Trump:

    I'm not bringing up anything that's not in his book, you know, when he says he went after his mother and wanted to hit her in the head with a hammer, that bothers me. I mean, that's pretty bad. When he says he's pathological -- and he says that in the book, I don't say that -- and again, I'm not saying anything, I'm not saying anything other than pathological is a very serious disease. And he said he's pathological, somebody said he has pathological disease.

  5. John Larson:
