How to use moor in a sentence?

  1. J.W.N. Sullivan:

    For every living creature that succeeds in getting a footing in life there are thousands or millions that perish. There is an enormous random scattering for every seed that comes to life. This does not remind us of intelligent human design. "If a man in order to shoot a hare, were to discharge thousands of guns on a great moor in all possible directions; if in order to get into a locked room, he were to buy ten thousand casual keys, and try them all; if, in order to have a house, he were to build a town, and leave all the other houses to wind and weather - assuredly no one would call such proceedings purposeful and still less would anyone conjecture behind these proceedings a higher wisdom, unrevealed reasons, and superior prudence."

  2. Kerri Hurley:

    I owe Ben Moor a debt of gratitude because, if heaven forbid something had happened to my husband, I would never have talked to him again, and Ben Moor was that person who allowed me to speak to him.

  3. Judah HaLevi:

    My heart in the East But the rest of me far in the West— How can I savor this life, even taste what I eat? How, in the bonds of the Moor, Zion chained to the Cross, Can I do what I’ve vowed to and must? Gladly I’d leave All the best of grand Spain For one glimpse of the ruined Shrine’s dust.

  4. Rasikh Barkat:

    Right now, there is massive erosion in the villages along the shoreline. Fishermen complained to us that they didn’t have enough space to moor their boats. Buildings along the shorelines are caving in, also, rice fields at the back of the villages are affected because sea water is intruding into them due to failure of coastal aquifers. The entire area coastline will be inundated if the sea level rises above 1 meter.
