Examples of resting in a Sentence

  1. Bill Haslam:

    William Turner was among the bravest American heroes to fight for our country in World War II, we are grateful that William Turner will be laid to rest on Tennessee soil and William Turner family will have the closure and certainty of truly knowing his final resting place.

  2. Letitia Elizabeth Landon:

    Water—the mighty, the pure, the beautiful, the unfathomable—where is thy element so glorious as it is in thine own domain, the deep seas ? What an infinity of power is in the far Atlantic, the boundary of two separate worlds, apart like those of memory and of hope ! or in the bright Pacific, whose tides are turned to gold by a southern sun, and in whose bosom sleep a thousand isles, each covered with the verdure, the flowers, and the fruit of Eden ! But, amid all thy hereditary kingdoms, to which hast thou given beauty, as a birthright, lavishly as thou hast to thy favourite Mediterranean ? The silence of a summer night is now sleeping on its bosom, where the bright stars are mirrored, as if in its depths they had another home and another heaven. A spirit, cleaving air midway between the two, might have paused to ask which was sea, and which was sky. The shadows of earth and earthly things, resting omen-like upon the waters, alone shewed which was the home and which the mirror of the celestial host.

  3. Thomas Steinemann:

  4. Annie Mulgrew:

    My goal is to live a healthy lifestyle, and to be an active human, resting for a day or going for a walk, in the long run, doesn't matter. There's so much room for breaks.

  5. Andreas Bilicki:

    Doppel, as it stands, delivers two separate rhythms -- one high and one low. The high rhythm essentially delivers a rhythm which is higher than your resting heartbeat, and the lower one which is lower. And it works in a very similar way as to when you listen to upbeat or downbeat music. So, in the same way that upbeat music can excite you or bring you up, make you more alert; doppel does this. And it does the same thing with the downbeat tempo which you feel calming you down and even helping you into sleep.
