How to use inhabit in a sentence?

  1. Jamela Dunbar:

    On the day of Armageddon, the human race will be extinct from Plant Earth. The water will swallow up the lands. And the lands will rise up again, barren as before, and a new species of living beings will inhabit Planet Earth. With a higher level of intelligence unknown to humans. No human will survive this catastrophic ordeal. There will be no trace of the human race. Mother nature will repeat history, again. One Million years at a time. As no beginning, and as a world without end. Something humans will not live to tell.”

  2. Marcus Aurelius:

    Accustom yourself to attend carefully to what is said by another, and as much as it is possible, try to inhabit the speaker’s mind.

  3. Neil Gemmell:

    While the prospect of looking for evidence of the Loch Ness monster is the hook to this project, there is an extraordinary amount of new knowledge that we will gain from the work about organisms that inhabit Loch Ness – the UK's largest freshwater body.

  4. William Jackson Harper:

    I've learned in a very visceral way that people make the world, and the world that we are so privileged to inhabit for these past four seasons is beautiful, and wonderful, and full of good feelings and positivity and kindness, and there's no way to have that environment at work and not feel like,' Well, why can't this be what the rest of my life is like ?' So coming away from the show, I want to make sure that I try to put as much good into the world as I can going forward.

  5. Dawna Markova:

    I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible; to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance, to live so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom, and that which came to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.
