How to use lump in a sentence?

  1. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, The Crazy Ape:

    When I received the Nobel Prize, the only big lump sum of money I have ever seen, I had to do something with it. The easiest way to drop this hot potato was to invest it, to buy shares. I knew that World War II was coming and I was afraid that if I had shares which rise in case of war, I would wish for war. So I asked my agent to buy shares which go down in the event of war. This he did. I lost my money and saved my soul.

  2. Miep Gies:

    The message to take from Anne's story is to stop prejudice and discrimination right at its beginning. Prejudice starts when we speak about THE Jews, THE Arabs, THE Asians, THE Mexicans, THE Blacks, THE Whites. This leads to the feeling that all members of each such group think and act the same. That results in prejudice. Lumping entire groups of people together is RACISM, because it denies the fact that everyone is an individual. Even our own brothers and sisters or parents are not exactly like we are. So how do we dare to lump entire groups of people together? If any German had ever asked Anne to tell something about herself, I think she would be still with us today. However, nobody asked: she was just a Jew! Therefore, never base your opinion about anybody else on the color of that person's skin, or on the passport that a person carries, or on the family that person comes from, but only on what the person says and does and on NOTHING ELSE.

  3. Matthew Messina:

    If you have something in your mouth that you think is different, like a lump or bump, a white spot, a red spot, anything like that, don't wait, if there's something that you're not sure is right, that's something you want to contact your dentist about.

  4. Barrie Cassileth:

    Once you lump these together, you don’t know what people are responding to when you ask them about their beliefs.

  5. Leigh Hurst:

    It's a free and added way of knowing whether or not a lump is there.
