How to use upwards in a sentence?

  1. Paul Teng:

    Whenever I talk about food security in Singapore, I tell folks don't think land - think space. Because you can go upwards and sideways.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Never try to look back, and never gaze into the Past. Sometimes Past can be like Medusa, the hideous Gorgon with scary human face and having venomous snakes in the place of her hair. Beware of gazing directly into Medusa's eyes, for it can turn the onlooker into a stone. The Past does exactly the same - it freezes you stone cold, slowing and stopping all your actions, ambitions and aspirations..... the reason why Past is likened to Medusa here. Look forward to today, to this very moment, to the Present that welcomes you happily, as your journey of life continues upwards and onwards. A Viaxe Continua! Have a great journey, my friend!

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Most of the positive things in life are often preceded by negatvities, paradoxically. For example, we gain strength only after realizing our weaknesses. We learn to love unconditionally only after experiencing the hate directed towards us. We become more tolerant and proponents of equality only after the discrimination that world throws at us. We thus grow and mature with the flow of life, always negating the negativity, and moving upwards and onwards.

  4. London Capital Group Kelly:

    All this geopolitical tension is helping these defence stocks, and the fact that they are going to increase the anti-terrorist spend is aiding and abetting these moves upwards.

  5. Vikrant Parsai:
