Examples of understood in a Sentence

  1. Ted Cruz:

    I understood that my recounting in my book A Time for Truth the threats he made in the 2009 Texas Attorney General race—and the disparaging remarks he made about President George H.W. Bush—would cause him some discomfort, but I never imagined that his response would be a straight-out falsehood. It's disappointing; this is why people are so cynical about politics, because too many people are willing to lie.

  2. Mahtab Shihab:

    He wanted to make sure that we understood the privilege and the opportunity we had of being in America and how thankful we should be for that.

  3. Lauren Gardner:

    We were collecting data on a new virus that nobody understood at a time [ when ] there was not a single web page dedicated to Covid-19 case count.

  4. Michael Joseph:

    One girl was a valedictorian, she told me: 'I had no friends until I started traveling. No one understood me. I was always bored with everything everybody else wanted to do. I didn't want to go shopping. I wanted to go out into the woods and hike, and nobody understood that.' She thinks she'll go to college eventually and become a teacher.

  5. Ezio Auditore da Firenze:

    When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, this understanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time: once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially, mio caro. For you, our children, our brothers and sisters. And for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life, and keeps us guessing. Endless affection, mia Sofia. Forever yours, Ezio Auditore.
