Examples of striving in a Sentence

  1. W. E. B. Du Bois:

    A little less complaint and whining, and a little more dogged work and manly striving, would do us more credit than a thousand civil rights bills.

  2. Benjamin Franklin:

    [A]s all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever ...

  3. Thomas a Kempis:

    The good devout man first makes inner preparation for the actions he has later to perform. His outward actions do not draw him into lust and vice; rather it is he who bends them into the shape of reason and right judgement. Who has a stiffer battle to fight than the man who is striving to conquer himself.

  4. Petr Korda:

    You don’t realize it until someone really talks about it because we’re always so in the zone, we're always just striving to achieve more, and for our family just to back each other through every situation ... it's so surreal.

  5. Blake Hall:

    I come from a community where' no man left behind' is an American value and core to the military, and so, at ID.me, we call it' no identity left behind', where we're striving for a more equitable and just society.
