Examples of nerves in a Sentence

  3. Yasemin Baban:

    From the dogs we rescued that flew to America last, about 40% had broken teeth with nerves out in their mouth. Imagine how much pain they are in, a dog cannot speak and the people believe they are in good condition. But they are not. They have no chance to be medically checked in foster (homes) or in shelters here.

  4. Mary McCarthy:

    The strongest argument for the un-materialistic character of American life is the fact that we tolerate conditions that are, from a negative point of view, intolerable. What the foreigner finds most objectionable in American life is its lack of basic comfort. No nation with any sense of material well-being would endure the food we eat, the cramped apartments we live in, the noise, the traffic, the crowded subways and buses. American life, in large cities, is a perpetual assault on the senses and the nerves; it is out of asceticism, out of unworldliness, precisely, that we bear it.

  5. Lindsey Vonn:

    It was such an emotional day for me - it was really hard to control my nerves, i was definitely the most nervous I've been in my entire life, and all I wanted to do was finish strong and have the ending that I've been dreaming of for my career.
