How to use conduct in a sentence?

  1. Patrick Leahy:

    The conduct described suggests an alarming lack of concern for the safety of the Cubans involved, and anyone who knows Cuba could predict it would fail, uSAID never informed Congress about this and should never have been associated with anything so incompetent and reckless. It's just plain stupid.

  2. Tom Fuentes:

    Do we want drones out of control that could land who knows here? We could have a child pick up the drone, pick up the gun, and accidentally kill themselves. I see the whole thing as reckless conduct.

  3. Jim Bridenstine:

    We are working right now in fact to put together a comprehensive plan on how we would conduct a Mars mission using the technologies that we will be proving at the moon.

  4. Ryszard Kapuściński:

    Although a system may cease to exist in the legal sense or as a structure of power, its values (or anti-values), its philosophy, its teachings remain in us. They rule our thinking, our conduct, our attitude to others. The situation is a demonic paradox: we have toppled the system but we still carry its genes.

  5. Defense Secretary Ash Carter:

    These special operators will over time be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence, and capture ISIL leaders.
