How to use incline in a sentence?

  1. Nicolas Chamfort:

    Education must have two foundations --morality as a support for virtue, prudence as a defense for self against the vices of others. By letting the balance incline to the side of morality, you only make dupes or martyrs; by letting it incline to the other, you make calculating egoists.

  2. Aldous Huxley:

    The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.

  3. David Siik:

    I was really concerned that people weren't really understanding that there are consequences for sprinting on too big of an incline all the time, so after a lot of research and really digging into what happens to the body on an incline, we created the 5 percent incline guideline-- we don’t do any maximum sprinting over a 5 percent incline so that you aren’t putting too much pressure on your lower back. We just recalculated the work load so it feels better.

  4. M. Henry:

    That which is won ill, will never wear well, for there is a curse attends it which will waste it. The same corrupt dispositions which incline men to sinful ways of getting, will incline them to the like sinful ways of spending.

  5. Francis Bacon:

    Universities incline wits to sophistry and affectation.
