How to use exhaust in a sentence?

  1. John Mulligan:

  2. George Sand:

    It is sad, no doubt, to exhaust one's strength and one's days in cleaving the bosom of this jealous earth, which compels us to wring from it the treasures of its fertility, when a bit of the blackest and coarsest bread is, at the end of the day's work, the sole recompense and the sole profit attaching to so arduous a toil.

  3. Mona Sarfaty:

They are more vulnerable to the heat-related increases in air pollution that come from fossil fuel exhaust, because their lungs are still developing. Outdoor play also makes them more prey to insect vectors carrying dangerous infections, the doctors in our societies are seeing these problems today, and they will undoubtedly get worse if we don't decisively address climate change.

  4. Italo Calvino:

    The catalogue of forms is endless: until every shape has found its city, new cities will continue to be born. When the forms exhaust their variety and come apart, the end of cities begins.

  5. Chris Bertelsen:

    Some of the selling will exhaust itself pretty soon. This sort of market will create opportunities, every time there is a snapback, the drawdown is greater than the snapback and that is a sign that presages a market where people hunt for safety stocks and higher yield.
