How to use don in a sentence?

  1. John Billings:

    Don't lay any certain plans for the future it is like planting toads and expecting to raise toadstools.

  2. Jeffrey Gundlach:

    The reason the markets aren't going lower is people are holding and hoping, the market bottoms out when people are selling and sold out - not when they are holding and hoping. I don't think you've seen real selling in risk assets broadly. Markets need buying to go up and they need volume to go up. They can fall just on gravity.

  3. H. Ross Perot:

    Eagles don't flock - you have to find them one at a time.

  4. David Bier:

    I don't see any way to get back to it now that Republicans know where their base is on their issue, i would be surprised if you didn't see a more restrictive legal immigration plank than you already have in the GOP platform in 2020.

  5. President Trump:

    Nobody ever mentions North Korea, where you have this maniac sitting there, and he actually has nuclear weapons and somebody better start thinking about North Korea and perhaps a couple of other places. But certainly North Korea, you have somebody right now in North Korea who has got nuclear weapons and who is saying almost every other week, ‘ I ’m ready to use them, ’ and we don’t even mention it.
