How to use hit in a sentence?

  1. Butler:

    Man is supreme lord and master Of his own ruin and disaster, Controls his fate, but nothing less In ordering his own happiness: For all his care and providence Is too feeble a defence To render it secure and certain Against the injuries of Fortune; And oft, in spite of all his wit, Is lost by one unlucky hit, And ruined with a circumstance, And mere punctilio of a chance.

  2. Chris Murray:

    There's a real risk that winter surge has already started in Europe, cases are exploding there. So we know it's coming and we expect it to hit The US pretty soon.

  3. Ernest Haycox:

    No sensible man watches his feet hit the ground. He looks ahead to see what kind of ground they'll hit next.

  4. Randy Frederick:

    I think the market is more sensitive to oil than anything else. If we see oil continue to hit record lows by the end of the day, I think the market will follow it.

  5. Bernd Berg:

    What we see is a dollar move, massive dollar buying from real money as well as hedge funds. It's being bought all across the board versus all currencies and those relying heavily on short-term inflows are being hit the hardest.
