How to use die-hard in a sentence?

  1. Boston Children:

    I don’t know if it will be any worse, but I don’t think things will get better, i’m old enough to remember when homosexuality was considered a disease. Those ideas die hard.

  2. Tallulah Bankhead:

    Let's not quibble! I'm the foe of moderation, the champion of excess. If I may lift a line from a die-hard whose identity is lost in the shuffle, I'd rather be strongly wrong than weakly right.

  3. Keri Gans:

    I am a die-hard meat lover, but I love to add black beans to a Bolognese so I can reduce the amount of chopped sirloin used.

  4. Ronald Reagan:

    Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future.

  5. Hunter S. Thompson:

    Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of the rat race is not yet final.
