How to use forget in a sentence?

  1. Anonymous:

    Time heals all wounds”, isn't that what we've always been told? But, what about the scar a wound leaves behind? What will heal that? Of course medically speaking plastic surgery can erase even the mightiest of scars but in metaphoric terms: if a sad and depressing incident then the scab/scar left behind would be a memory of it and nothing can wipe out memories(or at least not something I know of, except for a severe head injury). Then again we perhaps may forget about it momentarily or for a while, but, eventually the memories will resurface, in dreams or because of a sudden flashback...so, in reality does time actually heal wounds ?

  2. RVM:

    Some people are so busy with life that they just forget to live.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    One of the genius writers of 20th century, Hermann Hesse, Nobel Laureate and my most favorite author, wrote: "Most people...are like a falling leaf that drifts and turns in the air, flutters, and falls to the ground. But a few others are like stars which travel one defined path: no wind reaches them, they have within themselves their guide and path." I like this quote, because it is so enlightening and powerful. It's also a constant reminder that you are the Star, and you must maintain your character - no matter what others say or do. Also not to forget that the Star does have ability to turn into Supernova, which brightens the Universe with such a powerful light that can only come from millions of Suns. Always strive to be that shining Star, and ultimately Supernova, to illuminate the world.

  4. William Adams:

    Men moving only in an official circle are apt to become merely official -- not to say arbitrary -- in their ideas, and are apter and apter with each passing day to forget that they only hold power in a representative capacity.

  5. Chipper Jones:

    Hank was very instrumental in me becoming an Atlanta Brave, the room of Braves decision-makers was split on who they were going to take with their first pick. As legendary scout Paul Snyder once told me, the vote came around to Hank. He paused, looked at everybody in the room, and he said, ‘Y'all better draft that Jones boy.’ I’ll never forget that. That comment must’ve carried some weight.
