How to use plucked in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Human life is often likened to a Rose Garden. It makes perfect sense to me. As we walk through the garden, we are always refreshed and rejuvenated by the breeze that carries amazingly capturing exquisite fragrance of beautiful flowers all around. Life seems so wonderful at that very moment. And on some occasions, a sight of dried plants, with dry petals lying around, plucked dead flowers and heaps of dead leaves all around sadden us a lot. A cold brutal breeze makes us shiver with the shocking dark reality check. Life can be so amazing and beautiful, and yet can be so cold and cruel sometimes....just like a Rose Garden.

  2. Helena Earl:

    Joseph Sparano said. The TAILORx study was n’t the only breakthrough research on breast cancer that was presented at ASCO. Dr. Helena Earl, a professor from the University of Cambridge in Britain, looked at whether women with HER-2 positive early-stage breast cancer could be treated with the drug Herceptin for 6 months instead of 12. Though Herceptin has improved survival and recurrence rates for over a decade in breast cancer patients, the drug is associated with a risk for heart damage in long-term users. When Herceptin was first introduced the 12-month period was almost plucked out of the air and there was n’t any evidence of how long you woud need to carry on with a targeted treatment to get the effect.

  3. Tom Jennings:

    Patty Hearst was plucked out basically from a life of luxury … having been raised by the Patty Hearst family, to being tied up in a broom closet for days on end, being indoctrinated to this point of view that, everything having to do with how society was held together was wrong, who among us is to say how we would react under those kinds of circumstances ?

  4. Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

    What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed? And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven and plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?
