Examples of drunk in a Sentence

  1. William Butler Yeats:

    The worst thing about some men is that when they are not drunk they are sober.

  2. John Kasich:

    My parents were killed by drunk driver, but my parents did not die in vain, i was transformed. I discovered my purpose by discovering the Lord.

  3. John Steinbeck:

    A kind of second childhood falls on so many men. They trade their violence for the promise of a small increase of lifespan, in effect, the head of the house becomes the youngest child. And I have searched myself for this possibility with a kind of horror. For I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I’ve lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment. I did not want to surrender fierceness for a small gain in yardage.

  4. Lund University researcher Tobias Olofsson:

    Mead is an alcoholic drink made with just honey and water and it was regarded as the drink of the gods and you could become immortal or sustain a better health if you drank it. It was drunk by the Vikings for example and other cultures such as the Mayas, the Egyptians and it was a drink that was regarded as a very beneficial drink.

  5. Paul. F. Meekin:

    I see that the house lights are still on. Let us not deprive the neighbours any longer of the chance to deplore how drunk I am."
