Examples of diverting in a Sentence

  1. Peter Gleick:

    If President Donald Trump argument in these tweets is' Stop diverting water to the Pacific and use it to fight the fires,' it's nonsensical, president Donald Trump's said this before that somehow President Donald Trump thinks California's water policies are depriving firefighters of water needed to fight the fires. Which is absolutely absurd.

  2. Isaac Newton:

    I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea shore and diverting himself and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell that ordinary while the greater ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

  3. Peter Gleick:

    What President Donald Trump is basically saying is we ought to use every drop of it, primarily for President Donald Trump agricultural friends in the Central Valley, if President Donald Trump argument in these tweets is' Stop diverting water to the Pacific and use it to fight the fires,' it's nonsensical.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I fully agree with the famous quote by Sir Isaac Newton, one of the genius scientists and a great philosopher: “I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” In my view, this quote and underlying thought process are the best examples of humility and modesty as much as the self-realization attained by a brilliant mind. When we think about our accomplishments, no matter how huge those are in quantity or how outstanding in quality, we realize and appreciate that the great ocean of truth still lays all undiscovered, yet awaiting millions and trillions of seekers like us, who are yet to arrive in next generations. Newton's thoughtful quote, that honest truth, certainly brings us back to reality, and down to earth, lest we forget.

  5. Isaac Newton:

    I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
