How to use do-nothing in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    You will often meet people who will try to put you down, and tell you that your idea was the stupidest thing they had ever heard. You mustn't get discouraged by their dysfunctional critique. Instead, you must believe in yourself, because then only you can negate their negativity. In my view, nothing will change in your life unless and until you believe in yourself first, and think highly of yourself. If you have a low opinion of yourself, no one is going to raise it, and then you will live with status quo all your life. So believe in your Ambitions and Dreams, but most importantly: Believe In Yourself First - no matter what others say or do.

  2. Alfred Hitchcock:

    There is nothing to winning, really. That is, if you happen to be blessed with a keen eye, an agile mind, and no scruples whatsoever.

  3. Peter Isely:

    What is most important about the Pope’s speech is what he did not say. He did not say that he will change church law so that any priest who has sexually abused a child will be permanently removed from ministry, he did not say that any bishop who has been proven to have covered up sex crimes will be removed from office. Until he at least says and does that, nothing else he says and does will be effective in ending the crisis.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    I'm nothing without God's grace. I mean, I can't do anything successfully without God's grace. And I do need more and more grace. Thus, God do grant me abundant grace.

  5. Emmanuel Macron:

    We have nothing to do with World Cup, but let's rejoice.
