Examples of golden in a Sentence

  1. Christopher Moriates:

    Many times the assumption seems to be that these patients use their inhalers outside of the hospital so they already know how to do so, but this study and others have shown this is not true and the vast majority of these patients actively misuse their inhalers, the astonishing thing is these patients often spend a few days in the hospital, receiving respiratory therapies multiple times each day, so lack of effective inhaler teaching during hospitalization is a foolishly squandered golden opportunity.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Some people believe that Silence is golden, and that Silence speaks a million words. In my view, it's not true. Silence often represents the remnants of your fears, flaws and insecurities. Silence signifies your inability and impotency to respond to reality. The saddest sounds of silence were heard loud and clear in the deepest darkness that followed Nazi Genocides, 9/11, Tsunami and Katrina. Silence isn't golden at all, and it surely comes back to haunt you. Stay away from Silence, and always dare to speak up your mind, so that life becomes smooth and seamlessly free-flowing.
