How to use king in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    The Bible is the Greatest book of wisdom and knowledge ever written and published. In fact, it is the most widely read book in the world, the most fiercely debated and the most often quoted book in history. Thus, the Bible is the Greatest book of all time. It is a collection of books that encompasses past or ancient stories, chronicles, teachings, laws, parables, proverbs, psalms, teachers, preachers, heroes, heroines, saints, kings, queens, prophecies, prophets, prophetesses, miracles, warnings, signs, wonders, mysteries, revelations (the past, present and future events collectively) and much more than that, including extraordinary insights or words of wisdom (encouragement) from Jesus Christ himself (the greatest teacher and inspirator of all time), king Solomon, king David, saint Paul among other ancient wise men and women. Billions of copies have been published and sold globally already. And many more copies will be published and sold sooner or later. In other words, the Bible has been read by the world as a whole. Even the posterity (all future generations ahead) will surely read the Bible. You can bet your bottom dollar. -Emeasoba George

  2. Charles Koch:

    We talk here about dollars and raising money and they are absolutely critical to getting this done, but they alone will not do the job. We know this from the successful movements in our country's history. It took the full commitment from the founding fathers, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the thousands of others who led successful movements. To defy the odds stacked against them, these leaders had to pledge their lives, fortunes and their sacred honor -- often at great personal sacrifice.

  3. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    King is not a happy man, but a happy man is a king!

  4. John Milton:

    He who reigns within himself and rules his passions, desires, and fears is more than a king.

    ' The Lion King' is one of the most beloved and well-known movie brands of all-time and this reboot will offer an opportunity for a whole new generation to embrace these iconic characters and this story in a bold new way, that should be more than enough to make it yet another hit for Disney.
