How to use hammer in a sentence?

  1. Matthew Stover:

    It is a truism that when one is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. The glory of art is that it can show this proverbial hammer how everything looks to a screwdriver--and to a plowshare, and to an earthenware pot. If reality is the sum of our perceptions, to acquire more varying points of view is to acquire, literally, more reality.

  2. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Strike the ignorants with the hammer of knowledge, wherever and whenever you see them!

  3. Abraham Maslow:

    To the man who only has a hammer in the toolkit, every problem looks like a nail.

  4. Armie Hammer:

    From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions with [the woman]— and every other sexual partner of his for that matter — have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed upon in advance, and mutuallyparticipatory, [The woman]’s attention seeking and ill-advised legal bid will only make it more difficult for real victims of sexual violence to get the justice they deserve.

  5. Jeremy DeSilva:

    Mary Leakey made exquisitely detailed maps of the footprint localities. From Mary Leakey map, we were able to approximate where the tracks should be. We began to dig, hoping for the best, but fearing instead that forty years of seasonal rains had washed them away, the soil was hard as cement and it took a hammer and chisel to reach the footprint layer, which we then needed to excavate delicately with a hard-bristled brush and tongue depressor. Fortunately, the footprints were beautifully preserved.
