How to use dash in a sentence?

  1. Schopenhauer:

    What a man can do and suffer is unknown to himself till some occasion presents itself which draws out the hidden power. Just as one sees not in the water of an unruffled pond the fury and roar with which it can dash down a steep rock without injury to itself, or how high it is capable of rising; or as little as one can suspect the latent heat in ice-cold water.

  2. John Kasich:

    The only time they matter is when you try to get people to give you money and they go, well, can you win? That's the only time they really matter, it's just hard work and you can't pay attention to all the flash and dash that's out there.

  3. Aaron David Miller:

    It’s a perfect storm of isolationism, muscular nationalism, with a dash of pragmatism and realism.

  4. Suffolk County:

    Bertha slithered out from under the dash while the owner [was] driving the van to an event. The owner felt tugging on the seat belt. When he looked down, there was Bertha, she was well hidden under the dash even though the van was thoroughly searched.

  5. Ebrahim Raisi:

    Giving concession to the Iranian regime will embolden them to kill their own people, to wage terror in the region, and rapidly dash to a nuclear bomb, i urge the Biden administration to quickly change course with Iran and pay attention to what over 250 bipartisan House members said in H.Res.118, and that is ‘ we stand with the people of Iran who are continuing to hold legitimate and peaceful protests against an oppressive and corrupt regime. ’ Iran deserves that.
