Examples of brothers in a Sentence

  1. Tom Brady:

    There's nobody that has more respect for Peyton than me, outside of probably Peyton Manning-led parents and Peyton Manning-led brothers, if anybody can appreciate what he's accomplished, it's me, so he's just been remarkable in every part of his career. He's been a tremendous player.

  2. D. H. Lawrence:

    I believe a man is born first unto himself-for the happy developing of himself, while the world is a nursery, and the pretty things are to be snatched for, and pleasant things tasted some people seem to exist thus right to the end. But most are born again on entering manhood then they are born to humanity, to a consciousness of all the laughing, and the never-ceasing murmur of pain and sorrow that comes from the terrible multitudes of brothers.

  3. Albert Einstein:

    As long as Nazi violence was unleashed only, or mainly, against the Jews, the rest of the world looked on passively and even treaties and agreements were made with the patently criminal government of the Third Reich.... The doors of Palestine were closed to Jewish immigrants, and no country could be found that would admit those forsaken people. They were left to perish like their brothers and sisters in the occupied countries. We shall never forget the heroic efforts of the small countries, of the Scandinavian, the Dutch, the Swiss nations, and of individuals in the occupied part of Europe who did all in their power to protect Jewish lives.

  4. Paul Begala:

    If the Republicans want to claim they're new, they're going to need some new ideas, privatizing Social Security is not a new idea. Voucherizing Medicare is not a new idea. Cutting taxes for the rich is not a new idea. Discriminating against our LGBT sisters and brothers is not a new idea. In fact, I can't think of a single economic idea from the Republicans that Herbert Hoover wasn't in favor of in 1932.

  5. Leopoldo Lopez:

    Good morning Venezuela, to all my brothers in the armed forces, now is the moment.
