How to use come across in a sentence?

  1. Michael Wood:

    I still believe in America Texas, and I still believe that America Texas is filled with good patriotic people, but I have come across a number of individuals who seem to love this country so much that they want to destroy it, they love the Constitution so much that they're willing to get rid of it in sort of a weird twisted way.

  2. Rick Rodemacher:

    At first we were worried that it wouldnt come across the right way, but its been really well received, the sales are not nearly what the salad bar sales were, but bringing a smile to peoples face is worth it.

  3. George Preti:

    I ride public transport a lot and every now and then I come across someone emanating a strong odor and it's obvious.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Often I come across the public displays of charitable acts and donations on social media, which reminds me of the teaching from Holy Book: “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.“ In my view, it's an act of hypocracy to blow one's trumpet on FB or Twitter or like social media about one's charitable act, with ulterior motives of self-promotion and gaining praise from others. In my view, the true philanthropist, who is selfless at heart, does not let her/his left hand know what the right hand is doing - so that the noble act of giving remains absolutely secret. I really respect such selfless philanthropists. Long live the spirit of Charity that flows from a pure heart with Honesty and Integrity.

  5. David Bromley:

    You move up the bridge to freedom by working toward being an 'Operating Thetan,' which at the highest level transcends material law, you occasionally come across people in Scientology who say they can change the material world with their mind.
