How to use prick in a sentence?

  1. William Shakespeare, "Hamlet", Act 1 scene 5:

    Leave her to heaven And to those thorns that in her bosom lodge, To prick and sting her.

  2. Thomas Schinecker:

    If you take blood from a finger prick, you will never be able to achieve the same level of specificity that you will achieve ... when you take blood from the vein, you have to have very, very high specificity. Even 0.1% or 0.2% makes a difference.

  3. 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.

  4. William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, Act 1, Scene 2:

    If Love be rough with you, be rough with Love, prick Love for pricking, and you beat Love down.

  5. RVM:

    Carrying a grudge in your heart or in your mind is like carrying a bunch of thorns on your body. You are just choosing to prick yourself with it.
