How to use kernel in a sentence?

  1. Hannah More:

    One kernel is felt in a hogshead; one drop of water helps to swell the ocean; a spark of fire helps to give light to the world. None are too small, too feeble, too poor to be of service. Think of this and act.

  2. Barbara Charline Jordan:

    I live a day at a time. Each day I look for a kernel of excitement. In the morning I say 'What is my exciting thing for today' Then, I do the day. Don't ask me about tomorrow.

  3. Francis Quarles:

    In thy apparel avoid singularity, profuseness, and gaudiness. Be not too early in the fashion, nor too late. Decency is half way between affectation and neglect. The body is the shell of the soul, apparel is the husk of that shell; the husk often tells you what the kernel is.

  4. Henrik Ibsen:

    Money may be the husk of many things, but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; days of joy, but not peace and happiness.

  5. Hannah More:

    One kernel is felt in a hogshead; one drop of water helps to swell the ocean; a spark of fire help to give light to the world. None are too small, too feeble, too poor to be of service. Think of this and act.
