How to use land in a sentence?

  1. C. C. Colton:

    Men of strong minds and who think for themselves, should not be discouraged on finding occasionally that some of their best ideas have been anticipated by former writers; they will neither anathematize others nor despair themselves.

  3. Jamela Dunbar:

    Heaven is being in the land of the living. Hell is when you die and you are in a hole in the ground. No one gets a pass on death.”

  4. Thaung Tun:

    Catchment area would be twice the size of Singapore. This would mean that a lot of villages will have been displaced from their accessible land. That is the issue.

  5. Grace Mugabe:
