How to use pin in a sentence?

  1. F. Scott Fitzgerald:

    One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.

  2. Richard Horwell:

    It is the scientific evidence that condemns Lugovoy and Kovtun, no matter how many state honors Putin may pin to Lugovoy's chest ... however many conferences Kovtun may hold or how many times Kovtun promises to blow apart this inquiry, Lugovoy and Kovtun have no credible answer to the scientific evidence and the trail of polonium they left behind.

  3. Phil Mickelson:

    Wearing all black, being aggressive and hitting bombs, thats what Im going to do today, hit bombs and attack the pin.

  4. Rajeev Hingorani:

    We cautioned the family about such incidents because Sameera was lucky that the pin did not cause any major internal injuries or damage the stomach walls, had there been a delay in the treatment, we wouldve been forced to perform a surgery.

  5. Victor Hugo:

    Should we continue to look upwards Is the light we can see in the sky one of those which will presently be extinguished The ideal is terrifying to behold, lost as it is in the depths, small, isolated, a pin-point, brilliant but threatened on all sides by the dark forces that surround it nevertheless, no more in danger than a star in the jaws of the clouds. (Les Miserables)
