How to use amends in a sentence?

  1. Aldous Huxley:

    Classic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. ROLLING IN THE MUCK IS NOT THE BEST WAY OF GETTING CLEAN.

  2. Eric Dier:

    It was a moment where we knew we were extremely disappointed and we knew we couldn't let that happen again and we wanted that to change. We knew that we could only make amends for that moment here at this World Cup and nothing else would fix what happened then.

  3. Dr. Dale E. Turner:

    It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character.

  4. Cheryl Burke:

    The one thing I truly regret and want to make amends with is Ian Ziering, i was completely out of line a few years ago, and I did a podcast where they were asking me who my favorite partner was and who did I hate the most. And I answered Ian Ziering, and I said something along the lines of 'I'd rather slit my wrists than dance with Ian Ziering again.'.

  5. Liz Stalnaker:

    Removing the name Stapleton from places of honor in Denver is one small, visible way of making amends for that history.
