How to use external in a sentence?

  1. Lee Buchheit:

    Countries sometimes do become preoccupied with their internal political issues and they don't get around dealing with external debt problem until it becomes messy.

  2. Mike Pompeo:

    It's complicated, there's certainly places where ISIS is more powerful today than they were three or four years ago. But the caliphate is gone and their capacity to conduct external attacks has been made much more difficult.

  3. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.:

    For I say unto you in all sadness of conviction that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone -- when you have felt around you are a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and despair have trusted to your own unshaken will -- then only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought -- the subtle rapture of postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. And if this joy should not be yours, still it is only thus you can know that you have done what lay in you to do -- can say that you have lived, and be ready for the end.

  4. Sean Callow:

    It's very interesting, and eye-catching, that the MAS has gone back to post-global financial crisis settings, and sends a strong message about the weak external environment, as one of the world's most trade-sensitive economies, Singapore's concern over a 'less favourable external environment' should be noted by the likes.

  5. James Madison:

    If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
