How to use giving in a sentence?

  1. Alon Gorodetsky:

    Soldiers wear uniforms with the familiar green and brown camouflage patterns to blend into foliage during the day, but under low light and at night, they're still vulnerable to infrared detection, you can draw inspiration from natural systems that have been perfected over millions of years, giving us ideas we might never have been able to come up with otherwise.

  2. Corey Feldman:

    The car’s pulling up to people almost looking like he’s going to hit them, and then [the other driver] slows down and aligns himself with our window on the passenger side … The guy on the passenger side, which is where my security’s sitting because I’m driving … he starts giving [my security guard] the evil eye.

  3. Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 Coda:

    All you umpires, back to the bleachers. Referees, hit the showers. It's my game. I pitch, I hit, I catch. I run the bases. At sunset, I've won or lost. At sunrise, I'm out again, giving it the old try.

  4. Alan Kazdin:

    The real choice is not anywhere near as important in life as the perception of choice, and so it doesn't matter that the child doesn't have a real choice, what matters is that in giving that [choice], you increase compliance.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The most pronounced and repeated (21 times) message in Holy Bible is "Don't be afraid!" It appears in various forms as "Don't be afraid," "Fear not," "Have courage" etc, because God makes us understand that fear keeps us from giving our best to the world. Fear also keeps us away from loving and trusting others unconditionally. So don't be afraid - especially of your own fears - and you will enjoy life to the fullest.
