How to use breaking in a sentence?

  1. Carole Scofield:

    Carole Scofield told the news station Carole Scofield thinks this is the second time this same bear has broken into their home looking for food. The first time it broke down their front door. In total, the couple said they have had trouble with bears on six different occasions during the 20 years they’ve lived in South Lake Tahoe. Lesa Johnston, with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, told KOLO8 that bears normally rummage through trash cans in search of food, but they're also known to look elsewhere. At some point in the bears' life, they gain some type of food reward by breaking in a cabin or a home, so they remember that, so the behavior is likely to be repeated, Lesa Johnston said. We are very lucky, both major break-ins, we were very lucky. I know a lot of people have not been. It has been very, very costly.

  3. Joseph Goebbels:

    Socialism is the doctrine of liberation for the working class. It promotes the rise of the fourth class and its incorporation in the political organism of our Fatherland, and is inextricably bound to breaking the present slavery and regaining German freedom. Socialism, therefore, is not merely a matter of the oppressed class, but a matter for everyone, for freeing the German people from slavery is the goal of contemporary policy. Socialism gains its true form only through a total fighting brotherhood with the forward striving energies of a newly awakened nationalism. Without nationalism it is nothing; a phantom, a mere theory, a castle in the sky, a book. With it it is everything, the future, freedom, the fatherland.

  4. Mark Zuckerberg:

  5. Environment Canada:
