How to use do-nothing in a sentence?

  1. Zhang Yongli:

    My biggest worry was my wife had been ill for a while before she got pregnant, and had not fully recovered when she suddenly learned that she was pregnant with five babies, we inquired about the possibility of having the number reduced, but were told that it wasn't possible to abort some babies without putting all [at] risk, and so we decided it was all or nothing and to take the risk. It was my wife's choice, and I supported her.

  2. Sante Fe Archbiship John Wester:

    She’s not a saint. There is nothing good that can come out of praying to her, we have a lot of saints who represent the teaching of Jesus Christ. This is an aberration.

  3. John Ulczycki:

    It's not the time of night. It's how dark it is. That's really the risk here, and I think too many parents think of night driving as a social curfew. ' Well, I'll let my kid stay out until 11 p.m. so he's fine,' it has nothing to do with that. It has to do with the risk of driving after dark.

  4. Erich Fromm:

    We all dream we do not understand our dreams, yet we act as if nothing strange goes on in our sleep minds, strange at least by comparison with the logical, purposeful doings of our minds when we are awake.

  5. Will Rogers:

    Nothing you can't spell will ever work.
