Examples of workings in a Sentence

  1. Marianne Baker:

    In all my years working for Senator Biden, I never once witnessed, or heard of, or received, any reports of inappropriate conduct, period -- not from Ms. Reade, not from anyone. I have absolutely no knowledge or memory of Ms. Reade's accounting of events, which would have left a searing impression on me as a woman professional, and as a manager, these clearly false allegations are in complete contradiction to both the inner workings of our Senate office and to the man I know and worked so closely with for almost two decades.

  2. Leo Tolstoy:

    A writer is dear and necessary for us only in the measure of which he reveals to us the inner workings of his very soul.

Biden. It would stick in my mind. It would be burned in my mind.

  5. Mike Schmidt:

    My honest answer to that would be no because of a couple of things, first of all, it’s a language barrier. Because of that, I think he ca n’t be a guy that would sort of sit in a circle with four, five American players and talk about the game. Or try and learn about the game or discuss the inner workings of the game. Or come over to a guy and say, ‘ Man, you got ta run that ball out. ’ Just ca n’t be — because of the language barrier — that kind of a player.
