Examples of daily in a Sentence

  1. Ramana Pemmaraju:

    Mechanics of Mind: I feel the greatest source of despair stems not from what we do on a daily basis, but the pace at which our mind thinks vis-a-vis our progression in real life that matters - the greater the gap the more the despair!”

  2. The Toronto Zoo:

    This week, she was introduced to snow for the first time and she will continue to spend time outdoors daily.

  3. Michael Barbaro:

    I don't think, when it comes to audio, there's any risk of a single news organization somehow monopolizing the industry. Go on iTunes, go on any of the podcast charts, and you will see thousands of shows, and you will see hundreds of newsrooms making podcasts. They're finding an audience, it's difficult for me to understand how The Daily success is a negative for any other podcast. I think this is kind of like rising tide lifts all boats.

  4. Aldous Huxley:

    To us, the moment 8:17 A.M. means something - something very important, if it happens to be the starting time of our daily train. To our ancestors, such an odd eccentric instant was without significance - did not even exist. In inventing the locomotive, Watt and Stevenson were part inventors of time.

  5. Mildred Dresselhaus:

    People who have it too easy in early life have a disadvantage for later on, because they get to thinking that everything is going to be easy. (quoted 2017-12-30 in the Toronto Daily Star)
