How to use boil in a sentence?

  1. Jeff Robbins:

    The census, when you boil it down, is about two things : It's about power and it's about money.

  2. Rodrigo Luger:

    Planets around these stars can form within 10 million years, so they are around when the stars are still extremely bright, and that's not good for habitability, since these planets are going to initially be very hot, with surface temperatures in excess of 1,000 degrees 1,832 degrees Fahrenheit. When this happens, your oceans boil and your entire atmosphere becomes steam.

  3. Romanian Proverb:

    Do not put your spoon into the pot which does not boil for you.

  4. Cherokee Nation:

    I can boil this down very simply for the Congress, does the Congress intend to keep its word to the Cherokee people ? If the answer's yes, then Ms. Teehee will be seated.

  5. Josh Groban:

    There's no shame in just doing the small things every day to just get you through those moments... you don't have to feel like you're setting yourself up to knock down the biggest thing you could possibly imagine, for me it's been little things. Instead of trying to write a whole song, just try and think about one line. I haven't done a lot of cooking, maybe I can learn to make pasta today and see if I can look up how to boil water and do that. And all those little baby steps lead to realizing that you're accomplishing quite a bit.
