Examples of kudos in a Sentence

  1. Brad Stertz:

    Kudos to Tesla for bringing out the system but you also need to be responsible and clear about what the technology is capable of doing.

  2. Sloane Stephens:

    I was playing one good point, one bad point, one good point. The inconsistency doesn't help me at all, she did a good job just staying there, keep fighting. She never really let me in. Kudos to her. She executed her game style really well.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Loyalty is one of the most valuable qualities that's becoming exceedingly scarce, in personal as much as in professional life. The people and organizations who have been deeply hurt by someone whom they had trusted as a true friend or a loyal employee would surely underscore the fact that loyalty is indeed a dual-edged sword, i.e. something that can cut both ways. And yet, Loyalty is one of the most noble and admirable qualities IMHO. My respectful salute to all those exceptional individuals who have remained always loyal and ever faithful to their friends, families, organizations and nations, despite the challenging times and absolutely adverse circumstances. Our world would be totally empty, hollow, and shallow without such wonderful people. Long Live Loyalty! Kudos to Semper Fidelis!

  4. Matthew Cooper:

    It’s a difficult operation to do because the organ essentially scars in the [initial] recipient, my hat’s off and kudos to Dr. Veale — even being able to do it technically is worthy of praise.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Facing life's adversities head-on, and surviving through a truly traumatic experience often makes one tougher, smarter and stronger than ever before. Only you know it inside that you're not, and you'll never be, the same person as you were before encountering and overcoming that challenging phase of your life. You did not let that experience knock you down, dampen your spirit, and drain your resolve. Instead you found a way to rise from the ashes to face the world, now empowered and enabled with exceptional resilience. It's so true that what doesn't kill you surely makes you stronger. Kudos to you, Survivor. In my eyes, you will always be the Hero. Cheers my friend!
