Examples of weeping in a Sentence

  1. Prof. F. A. P. Aveling:

  3. Spun Gold:

    Harry was born into a marriage that was falling apart, and it’s a marriage that played out on the world stage… The dirty laundry is right out there… Then at age 12, he has to walk behind his mother’s coffin in front of 2 billion people watching from around the world. He has to shake the hands of people who are weeping, who haven’t even met his mother. And yet he has to hold it together. Prince Harry (center) with his brother Prince William and father Prince Charles at Princess Diana's funeral. (Reuters) That plays forward to today in terms of why Harry wants to be so protective of Meghan. When the British press were frankly being racist about her arrival to the U.K. and into the royal family, Harry issues a statement essentially saying 'back off.' And they did back off. He couldn’t protect his mother as a 12-year-old boy, but he is determined to protect Meghan. And it comes as no surprise that he and his brother have a big distrust of the media.

  4. Proverb:

    Weeping bride, laughing wife; laughing bride, weeping wife.

  5. Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince:

    One runs the risk of weeping a little, if one allows himself to be tamed.
