How to use against in a sentence?

  1. Samuel S. Janus:

    Most comics make jokes to defend themselves against what they see as a hostile and inhumane world often a deeply felt rage.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We gain amazing confidence and courage on every occasion when we work outside our comfort zone. When we are outside our element, we have no choice but to challenge ourselves to win against all odds, in the face of fear and uncertainty. In my view, we offer our best performance when we have to operate outside our comfort zone, just like a meteor entering Earth's gravitational field and shining brilliantly with the brightest light that illuminates the sky. Hence we mustn't fear leaving our comfort zone or being outside our element at any time. Instead, we should challenge the status quo to offer the best performance in an unfamiliar territory. This is how we reinvent ourselves, and become the better versions of ourselves than ever before. Life often begins outside the comfort zone.

  3. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador:

  4. Patrick Shanahan:

    Allow me to extend on behalf of the Department of Defense our thoughts and prayers to the families and team members of those killed and wounded during todays attack in Manbij, our fight against terrorism is ongoing and we will remain vigilant and committed to its destruction.

  5. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov:

    I hope the change in the position of our Western colleagues, which has unfortunately only come about as the result of terrible acts of terror, will spread to other Western partners. That the stance that the real battle with Islamic State can only be resolved once the fate of Assad is clear, that this position will put to one side, in my opinion there can now be no doubts that it is simply unacceptable to put forward any preconditions in order to unite in the battle against so-called Islamic State terrorists.
