Examples of phrases in a Sentence

  1. Harold Ross:

    I asked Ring Lardner the other day how he writes his short stories, and he said he wrote a few widely separated words or phrases on a piece of paper and then went back and filled in the spaces.

  2. Albert Einstein:

    The state exists for man, not man for the state. The same may be said of science. These are old phrases, coined by people who saw in human individuality the highest human value. I would hesitate to repeat them, were it not for the ever recurring danger that they may be forgotten, especially in these days of organization and stereotypes.

  3. Erica Reischer:

    Those phrases are using shame, blame and fear to motivate behavior, when we say them again and again, it can impair the parent-child relationship because it suggests the problem is not the behavior, but the problem is the child.

  4. Steve Bullock:

    Tribal languages are more than just a collection of words and phrases tied together. They represent the culture and history of not Native Americans in our state, but in fact they represent the culture and history of our entire state.

  5. H. L. Mencken:

    The Gettysburg speech was at once the shortest and the most famous oration in American history...the highest emotion reduced to a few poetical phrases. Lincoln himself never even remotely approached it. It is genuinely stupendous. But let us not forget that it is poetry, not logic; beauty, not sense. Think of the argument in it. Put it into the cold words of everyday. The doctrine is simply this: that the Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination -- that government of the people, by the people, for the people, should not perish from the earth. It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. The Union soldiers in the battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern themselves.
