How to use dying in a sentence?

  1. Blaise Pascal:

    Man is only a reed, the weakest in nature; but he is a thinking reed. There is no need for the whole universe to take up arms to crush him: a vapor, a drop of water is enough to kill him. But even if the universe were to crush him, man would still be nobler than his slayer, because he knows that he is dying and the advantage the universe has over him. The universe knows nothing of this.

  2. Antonio Guterres:

    There is a cost to everything. But the biggest cost is doing nothing. The biggest cost is subsidising a dying fossil fuel industry, building more and more coal plants, and denying what is plain as day: that we are in a deep climate hole, and to get out we must first stop digging.

  3. Fred Trump:

    When I was hearing the amount of people that died with the flu, I was shocked to hear it, over the last, long period of time when people have the flu, you have an average of 36,000 people dying. I've never heard those numbers, I would've been shocked. I would have said,' Does anybody die of the flu ?' I didn't know people died from the flu.

  4. Bernie Sanders:

    The homes just became dilapidated. The grass was dying. Palm trees were dumped over, it was just dead, dead, dead, dead, all the way down. At least 10 houses down, every other home was just gone. Empty.

  5. Texas Governor Greg Abbot:
