How to use grasp in a sentence?

  1. Arden Laga:

    Pretty early on when I realized I was lost I came to grasp with the possibility of me dying and actually came quite to peace with it and was not too worried, [It] felt like of all the places to die, the Bitterroot Wilderness is the place to do it. But, remembering the promise that I had made to Arden, that I would come home safe and take care of that baby, my mind switched and it was survival mode for the next 5 days after that. The focus was just getting home no matter what.

  2. Nealie Barker:

    They still didn't seem to grasp the seriousness of the issue. They were treating it like a canceled booking.

  3. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy:

    I think there's a lot of things that happened. It's not just on January 6, we had on Good Friday an officer get killed. I think if you're going to have a commission you should look at the whole broad spectrum. We just went through a whole summer of riots throughout this city. We should grasp that as well.

  4. David Neuhauser:

    It is imperative that both management and the board fully grasp the need to directly attack the current issues that are impairing shareholder equity, The opportunity to talk through our issues is now at an inflection point.

  5. Og Mandino:

    The great difference between those who succeed and those who fail does not consist in the amount of work done by each but in the amount of intelligent work. Many of those who fail most ignominiously do enough to achieve grand success but they labor haphazardly at whatever they are assigned, building up with one hand to tear down with the other. They do not grasp circumstances and change them into opportunities. They have no faculty for turning honest defeats into telling victories. With ability enough and ample time, the major ingredients of success, they are forever throwing back and forth an empty shuttle and the real web of their life is never woven.
