Examples of whilst in a Sentence

  1. Uday Cheruvu:

    Whilst we were avoiding buying the big four when Westpac and NAB were nudging $40 at the end of FY15, we now believe many market commentators are under-estimating the sustainability of their profits and dividends.

  2. Zed Seselja:

    We obviously seek to have positive relations with all of our nations including China, that's our fervent hope, but we do it in a way that it's consistent with Australian values.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I fully agree with the famous quote by Sir Isaac Newton, one of the genius scientists and a great philosopher: “I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” In my view, this quote and underlying thought process are the best examples of humility and modesty as much as the self-realization attained by a brilliant mind. When we think about our accomplishments, no matter how huge those are in quantity or how outstanding in quality, we realize and appreciate that the great ocean of truth still lays all undiscovered, yet awaiting millions and trillions of seekers like us, who are yet to arrive in next generations. Newton's thoughtful quote, that honest truth, certainly brings us back to reality, and down to earth, lest we forget.

  4. Anya Topiwala:
