How to use dock in a sentence?

  1. Charles de LEUSSE:

    The hands that are spaced are docks, where desires can dock. (Les mains écartées sont des quais, - Où les désirs peuvent accoster.)

  2. H. G. Wells:

    A time will come when a politician who has wilfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with mens lives should not stake their own.

  3. John Parker-Jervis:

    When they go above 85 percent things start to slow down, it slows down the supply chain quite a bit and you get congestion on the dock.

  4. Sean Kearns:

    It enabled Google to photograph the ship pierside in her normal fully-rigged configuration before we down-rig the ship and move her into dry dock for restoration work.

  5. Cassi Free:

    Andy spent the day seated in the back of the boat when he wasn't swimming, tubing or wakeboarding. (Courtesy of Cassi Free) Brett stared, looking to see where Andy was going, someone commented from the dock that clearly, Andy didnt want to help. A man on a jet ski said he thought Andy must be going toward the ladder on the dock. Brett turned his attention there and then he realized that something was wrong; he didnt see any movement and dove in. At least two others came running to help. Andy was pulled from the water, CPR was performed, and emergency services were called. But he was already gone, Cassi recalled. The Free family, confused and shocked, had no idea what had happened.
