How to use lad in a sentence?

  1. Jack Reynolds:

    I’m a big, strong lad, and I’ve had plenty of needles in me in my time in various places.

  2. Piara Powar:

    There's a strand of male culture you see in the UK, and to some extent other Anglo Saxon societies, prevalent among 20, 30 and even 40-year-olds, which is : you go abroad, you drink a fair amount, you sing songs and engage in banter, and pick on someone who is different to you, there's this pervasive sexism and racism. The idea that' anyone who isn't like us, we're going to sing about them and insult them and it's part of the lad's day out.'.

  3. Leon Gautier:

    War is a misery. Not all that long ago, and perhaps you find this silly, but I would think 'perhaps I killed a young lad, perhaps I orphaned children, perhaps I widowed a woman or made a mother cry', i didn't want that, I'm not a bad man. You kill a man who's done nothing to you, that's war and you do it for your country.

  4. Charles Kingsley:

    Young blood must have its course, lad, and every dog its day.

  5. Frances Hodgson Burnett:

    Where you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle may not grow.
