Examples of pursued in a Sentence

  1. Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito:

    I myself did not experience the war ... but I think that it is important today, when memories of the war are fading, to look back humbly on the past and correctly pass on the tragic experiences and history Japan pursued from the generation which experienced the war to those without direct knowledge.

  2. Ayn Rand:

    America's abundance was created not by public sacrifices to the common good, but by the productive genius of free men who pursued their own personal interests and the making of their own private fortunes. They did not starve the people to pay for America's industrialization. They gave the people better jobs, higher wages and cheaper goods with every new machine they invented, with every scientific discovery or technological advance -- and thus the whole country was moving forward and profiting, not suffering, every step of the way.

  3. Heidi Heitkamp:

    The President remains popular in North Dakota, i think that North Dakota makes sense because a lot of the agenda items that The President's pursued, especially on deregulation have been incredibly popular. Those are things I share with The President.

  4. Anais Nin:

    I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing, but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding.

  5. Tina Calder:

    I met Lyra many years ago as a young, determined and ambitious budding reporter, her tenacity, determination, ambition and empathy made her an amazing young reporter and investigative writer... For years she tirelessly pursued the truth.
