Examples of received in a Sentence

  1. Michael Byers:

  2. Alex LeBaron:

    We don't know why, though they had received indirect threats. We don't know who did it, my cousin was murdered with her children in the truck.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Ingratitude is thinking nothing of what has been done or given to you by someone else. That is to say, not feeling bound to show gratitude. In other words, ingratitude is a discreditable lack of gratitude. In fact, it is simply lack of appreciations or thanks for something given or done to you or to someone else. Yes! you heard me right and that is just what it is. So, you've got to show gratitude to others for every bit of their kindness, love, care, gift and stuffs like that which you have already received from them. NOTE: Most importantly, never hesitate to show more and more gratitude to God almighty who gives you all that you ever need (the four necessities of life which are shelter, food, clothin­g and water) As well, always show gratitude to him (God) even for your life itself. Because, he is the sole giver and taker of every life including yours. Now listen up, you should show gratitude and you've got to resolve to show gratitude to all and sundry including God. For, until and unless you resolve and learn to show gratitude to everyone, you are an ingrate and you will remain an ingrate for life (period). -Emeasoba George

  4. Alexander Pope:

    The general cry is against ingratitude, but the complaint is misplaced, it should be against vanity; none but direct villains are capable of willful ingratitude; but almost everybody is capable of thinking he hath done more that another deserves, while the other thinks he hath received less than he deserves.

  5. Genevieve Schaefer:

    Schaefer says, adding that Genevieve Schaefer provided Genevieve Schaefer doctor’s office with Genevieve Schaefer new policy information and had a total of three appointments : Genevieve Schaefer annual physical in February, the IUD procedure in March and a follow-up in April.
