  1. age

    Sequence and succession apply to events viewed as following one another; time and duration denote something conceived of as enduring while events take place and acts are done. According to the necessary conditions of human thought, events are contained in time as objects are in space, time existing before the event, measuring it as it passes, and still existing when the event is past. Duration and succession are more general words than time; we can speak of infinite or eternal duration or succession, but time is commonly contrasted with eternity. Time is measured or measurable duration.

How to use age in a sentence?

  1. Chip Walter:

    What you may see in a child that's six months of age may differ from what you see in a child that's 3 years of age versus a child who's 8 years of age, or versus an adolescent who's 13 or 14. So, you really kind of need to take each age separately and evaluate the vaccines.

  2. Charles Dickens:

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times it ws the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair we had everything before us, we had nothing before us we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way.

  3. Anais Nin:

    Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.

  4. Bram Bekaert:

    The blood test, for example, has an accuracy of about 3.75 years over a whole age population, meaning that from newborns up to about 91 years of age our accuracy was about 3.75, the younger the individual is the higher the accuracy is because it has had less influence of the environment. So the more a person has an influence over the environment on his epigenome, as we call it, so the chemical structures on the genome the larger the error rate will become. So the error rate for younger people is about two years of age, while for 91 years of age it will be about five and a half, six, years of age.

  5. Mahdi Fallah:

    However, this risk level is reached at different ages for women from different racial/ethnic groups, black women tend to reach this risk level of 0.329% earlier, at age 42. White women tend to reach it at age 51, American Indian or Alaska Native and Hispanic women at age 57 years, and Asian or Pacific Islander women later, at age 61.
