How to use blinking in a sentence?

  1. D. H. Lawrence:

    We only seem to learn from Life that Life doesn't matter so much as it seemed to do -- it's not so burningly important, after all, what happens.

  3. George Eliot:

    Comprehensive talkers are apt to be tiresome when we are not athirst for information; but, to be quite fair, we must admit that superior reticence is a good deal due to lack of matter.

  5. The President:

    I'm here to say, the warning lights are blinking red again, dHS does not have evidence of the fact that anywhere near what happened in 2016.
