How to use heap in a sentence?

  1. George Bernard Shaw:

    This is the true joy in life: Being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap. Being a force of Nature, instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

  2. Simone de Beauvoir:

    Retirement may be looked upon either as a prolonged holiday or as a rejection, a being thrown on to the scrap-heap.

  3. George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, Epistle Dedicatory:

    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

  4. Ted Cruz:

    When others attack me I don't respond in kind, my response is typically not only not to respond but a lot of times to heap praises on the other folks. Now scripture gives us some guidance to that and they say when you pay unkindness with kindness that it's like heaping coals on their heads.

  5. Socrates:

    If all misfortunes were laid in one common heap whence everyone must take an equal portion, most people would be contented to take their own and depart.
