How to use organism in a sentence?

  1. Thomas H. Huxley:

    It is an error to imagine that evolution signifies a constant tendency to increased perfection.

  2. Yanis Varoufakis:

  3. Matteo Fabbri:

    There are certain laws that are applicable to any organism on this planet. One of these laws regards density and the capability of submerging into water.

  4. Paul Brooks, The Pursuit of Wilderness (1971):

    We shall never understand the natural environment until we see it as a living organism. Land can be healthy or sick, fertile or barren, rich or poor, lovingly nurtured or bled white. Our present attitudes and laws governing the ownership and use of land represent an abuse of the concept of private property.... Today you can murder land for private profit. You can leave the corpse for all to see and nobody calls the cops.

  5. Donald Trump:

    There is no centrist lane in the Democrat primary, we view them as one big liberal organism right now with 28 heads.
