Examples of couplet in a Sentence

  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    A term Significant describes its quality, not quantity, as quote and couplet, verdict, butter, perfume, honey, and such extracts can be Significant; whereas, a lengthy article, and judiciary, or milk, flowers and fruits may not. Similarly, a few meaningful words about celebrities define as Significant than a meaningless lengthy article, when a journalistic writer writes such wide-scale passages that value as Gold and when it writes a scholar that becomes Diamond. Thus, never consider Significant should be lengthy; otherwise, you commit that you are ignorant.
