How to use continuance in a sentence?

  1. Saadi Shirazi:

    No one hath come into the world for a continuance save him who leaveth behind him a good name.*

  2. Jeb Bush:

    I would say the best part of the Obama administration would be his continuance of the protections of the homeland using, you know, the big metadata programs, the NSA being enhanced, even though he never defends it, even though he never openly admits it, there has been a continuation of a very important service, which is the first obligation I think of our national government is to keep us safe.

  3. Carl DeHaven:

    In Da' Beginning To most of us...Infinity is a thing ahead of us. In reality it's both ahead and behind us. Some suggest that "in the beginning there was God". Others tell us a "big Bang" occurred. Some say an understanding of a beginning is not possible. Our calendar started on A.D. and we mark time bother before and after that day. Beginnings have endings. Could be there's no beginnings or endings. One of the aspects of existence is that of "continuance". Motive determines whether what we begin with be beneficial or not. Could be best to think a bit before we......begin. KnowyerLoved, CWD

  4. Henry Stimson:

    We must never forget, that under modern conditions of life, science, and technology. All war has been greatly brutalized, and that no one who joins in it, even in self-defense, can escape becoming also in a measure brutalized. Modern war cannot be limited in its destructive method and the inevitable debasement of all participants… A fair scrutiny of the last two World Wars makes clear the steady intensification of the weapons and methods employed by both, the aggressors and the victors. In order to defeat the Japanese aggression, we were forced, as Admiral Nimitz has stated, to employ a technique of unrestricted warfare, not unlike that which 25 years ago was the proximate cause of our entry into World War I. In the use of strategic air power the Allies took the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians in Germany and Japan…. We as well as our enemies have contributed to the proof that the central moral problem is war and not its methods, and that a continuance of war will in all probability end with the destruction of our civilization.

  5. Francis Quarles:

    Anger may repast with thee for an hour, but not repose for a night; the continuance of anger is hatred, the continuance of hatred turns malice.
