How to use mould in a sentence?

  1. John Adams:

    [D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man's life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few.

  2. Andrew Cooper:

    They break the mould of former leaders ... that focused much more on national politics and explicit ideological concerns.

  3. Jimmy Page:

    Guitarist Keith kicked it off and I began to mould a riff around Guitarist Keith guitar part to augment the arrangement.

  4. Ryszard Kapuściński:

    Our job is like a baker's work -- his rolls are tasty as long as they're fresh; after two days they're stale; after a week, they're covered with mould and fit only to be thrown out.

  5. Hunter S. Thompson:

    Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of the rat race is not yet final.
