How to use occupations in a sentence?

  1. President Barack Obama:

    I've been consistent throughout that we are not going to be fighting like we did in Iraq with battalions and occupations, that doesn't solve the problem.

  2. Phyllis McGinley:

    Sometimes I have a notion that what might improve the situation is to have women take over the occupations of government and trade and to give men their freedom. Let them do what they are best at. While we scrawl interoffice memos and direct national or extranational affairs, men could spend all their time inventing wheels, peering at stars, composing poems, carving statues, exploring continents -- discovering, reforming, or crying out in a sacramental wilderness. Efficiency would probably increase, and no one would have to worry so much about the Gaza Strip or an election.

  3. Marcus Aurelius Antoninus:

    'Let thine occupations be few,' saith the sage, 'if thou wouldst lead a tranquil life.'

  4. Laurence Sterne:

    There are worse occupations in this world than feeling a woman's pulse.

  5. Andy Hamilton:

    They're concerned that this might result in the lowering of the standards in what are currently our male-only occupations, and that would then reflect on either them or on the women who come into those occupations.
