Examples of sentences in a Sentence

  1. Chris Young:

    This is Judge( Kevin) Judge Sharp and Chris Young. This is the man that had to give me two life sentences, but I knew it was not something that he wanted to do. He wasn't choosing for me to have two life sentences. America and its judicial systems chose that. ... It's called a mandatory minimum and it means exactly that -- it is mandatory. So I knew he had no choice.

  2. Jules Renard:

    Words are the coins making up the currency of sentences, and there are always too many small coins.

  3. Robin Walker:

    The shock will be universal, anyone conducting such an attack on a small child is just appalling, it's an issue which rightly there has been a lot of concern in Parliament and a move to toughen sentences for any kind of acid attack.

  4. Kevin Landy:

    A large percent of ICE detainees have no criminal records and are more vulnerable in a prison setting – security staff and administrators at BOP facilities have spent their careers dealing with hardened criminals serving long sentences for serious felonies, and the procedures and staff training reflect that, this sudden mass transfer could result in some serious problems.

  5. William Strunk Jr., Elements of Style:

    Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.
