How to use conquer in a sentence?

  1. Rory McIlroy:

    Does it give people something else to talk about ? Yes, but I'm not necessarily listening to anything that anyone is saying, so doesn't really make a difference to me.' That Rory McIlroy is coming into the Masters with blinders on is little surprise. He's got a chance to become only the sixth player to win a career Grand Slam with a win here, and he's prepared meticulously for his attempt to conquer a course that seems made for his game but has consistently given him fits. He did it mostly out of the tournament spotlight, working on his game the last few weeks near his Florida home.

  2. Kittredge Cherry:

    Once you love someone, that love lasts forever in the universe. Love never ends. Satan’s big lie was that hatred, fear, sin, and death can sometimes conquer love. No. Time makes them fade, while love endures forever. Love—love in any form whatsoever, any love that is ever loved—remains and is gradually filling the vast expanse of the universe.

  3. Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching:

    To conquer others is to have power. To conquer yourself is to know the way.

  4. Amit Ray:

    If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.

  5. Virgil:

    They can conquer who believe they can.
