How to use put down in a sentence?

  1. Henry Louis Mencken:

    The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.

  2. Shaquille O'Neal:

    It's just something to have on my resume for when I go back into reality. Someday I might have to put down a basketball and have a regular 9-to-5 like everybody else.

  3. Taylor Swift:

    The Beatles ' took a break. The studio that they were using... when they weren't there, I was there. I would sort of scamper in there and put down a few of my little tracks and clear out before they came back.

  4. Ryan Todd:

    Increased hedging activity is a sign these firms view the outlook for the market as constructive enough to put down some protection - in a way it is almost a necessary pre-cursor to a pick-up in spending and/or production, once the value of futures contracts used for hedging moves back into a range that's reasonable, it presents an opportunity to lock in cashflow ahead of when lenders revisit the revolvers the E&P firms have in place. Having a strong outlook for the business, even if it does cap the upside, goes a long way in shoring up the risk of a lack of funding.

  5. Tammy Faye:

    I think I have a lot in common with the gay population because they've been made fun of and put down and misunderstood and have really had a rough row to hoe in life, they identify with me and I certainly identify with what they're still going through.
