How to use originate in a sentence?

  1. I Ching:

    Creativity comes from awakening and directing men's higher natures, which originate in the primal depths of the universe and are appointed by Heaven.

  2. John von Neumann:

    I think that it is a relatively good approximation to truth — which is much too complicated to allow anything but approximations — that mathematical ideas originate in empirics. But, once they are conceived, the subject begins to live a peculiar life of its own and is ... governed by almost entirely aesthetical motivations. In other words, at a great distance from its empirical source, or after much "abstract" inbreeding, a mathematical subject is in danger of degeneration. Whenever this stage is reached the only remedy seems to me to be the rejuvenating return to the source: the reinjection of more or less directly empirical ideas.

  3. Thomas Alva Edison:

    Great ideas originate in the muscles.

  4. The Speech and Debate Clause:

    One potential hurdle that the committee must consider is a lawmaker citing the Speech and Debate Clause, which states that a sitting member of Congress is protected from certain inquiries and procedures that originate outside of Congress. But members on the panel and legal scholars alike do not see that as an issue.Michael Flynn sues January 6 committee to block phone records subpoena.

  5. Catherine Bradshaw:

    With the big ice sheet on Antarctica like we have today, the predominant winds are known as katabatic winds, and these go from the land to the sea, they originate from the ice sheet where it is very high, very cold and very dry -- in fact Antarctica receives only a few inches of snowfall a year and is so dry it is classified as a desert.
