How to use pocket in a sentence?

  1. Jon Gray:

    There’s not a specific thing I follow, but I’ve been pitching with the same penny in my pocket the last three or four times, and I’ve done a lot better, it’s a 2016 penny. It was on heads and in the bullpen, so I thoughtit made sense. It was meant for me to see it, so I picked it up and put it in my pocket, and have been doing well ever since. I’m just going to keep rolling with it. I’ve been taking very good care of it. Been taking it out of my pocket, putting it in the same part of my locker, and putting it back in each time. I’ve been handling it really well. I’m surprised it’s lasted as long as it has. I found it in the bullpen before Tampa, I found it in our bullpen.

  2. Lord Chesterfield:

    Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked.

  3. Ian Bremmer:

    Trump was sitting there with his arms crossed, clearly not liking the fact that they were ganging up on him, he eventually agreed and said okay, he’ll sign it. And at that point, he stood up, he put his hand in his pocket, his suit jacket pocket, and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the table and said to Merkel, ‘Here, Angela, don’t say I never give you anything.’.

  4. Thomas Jefferson:

    The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

  5. Raymond Chandler:

    She gave me a smile I could feel in my hip pocket.
