How to use cultivation in a sentence?

  1. President Maithripala Sirisena:

    I instructed the Water Management Committee to release water for paddy farmers as soon as possible, but the paddy farmers remain unmoved. They want to start the cultivation after the (traditional) New Year.

  2. Meister Eckhart:

    To be sure, this requires effort and love, a careful cultivation of the spiritual life, and a watchful, honest, active oversight of all one's mental attitudes towards things and people. It is not to be learned by world-flight, running away from things, turning solitary and going apart from the world. Rather, one must learn an inner solitude, where or with whomsoever he may be. He must learn to penetrate things and find God there, to get a strong impression of God firmly fixed on his mind.

  3. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    Insist on yourself never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life's cultivation but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous half possession... Do that which is assigned to you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much.

  4. Munin Das:

    The land on both sides is equally fertile, however we suffer as we don’t have any irrigation facilities there. This takes a major toll on our land on the other side of the border, we have been traditionally dependent on the rainwater for our cultivation (for) generations, but now as the rainfall has become unpredictable, it is not possible.

  5. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar:

    Cultivation of mind should be the ultimate aim of human existence.
