Examples of convey in a Sentence

  1. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki:

    There is an incredibly high level of suspicion, distrust of anything that speaks of intelligence, people will look past Grenell's bravado and boastfulness as long as Richard Grenell is wearing a civilian uniform, but now, donning the spy gear and trying to convey a message about why Germany should support us on Iran or Russia or the spread of extremism is just a nonstarter.

  3. malcolm X, Autobiography of malcolm x:

    My thinking had been opened up wide in Mecca. I wrote long letters to my friends, in which I tried to convey to them my new insights into the American black man's struggle and his problems as well as the depths of my search for truth and justice. “I've had enough of someone else's propaganda,” I had written to these friends. “I am for truth, no matter who tells it. I am for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I am a human being first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.” The American white man's press called me the angriest Negro in America. I wouldn't deny that charge; I spoke exactly as I felt. I believe in anger. I believe it is a crime for anyone who is being brutalized to continue to accept that brutality without doing something to defend himself. I am for violence if non-violence means that we continue postponing or even delaying a solution to the American black man's problem. White man hates to hear anybody, especially a black man, talk about the crime that the white man perpetrated on the black man. But let me remind you that when the white man came into this country, he certainly wasn't demonstrating non-violence.

  4. Kelsey Crowe:

    What Emily's illustrations convey in a way that all my verbage could not is beyond my wildest imagination because that's what makes it accessible.

  5. Mick Mulvaney:

    If you aren't able in internal meetings to speak your mind, or convey thoughts, or say anything that you feel without feeling like your colleagues will betray you, that creates a very difficult work environment, i think anyone who works anywhere would recognize that.
