How to use quarry in a sentence?

  1. Tony Bramwell:

    There’s this whole legend about how great The Quarry Men were, but they barely played any gigs in their life, as soon as Paul joined, most of the others left because they wanted to play skiffle jazz and didn’t want to play rock and roll. Then George Harrison joined and completely demolished the idea of The Quarry Men as a folk skiffle band.

  2. Jo Anne Van Tilburg:

    The near exclusive use of one quarry to produce these seventeen tools supports a view of craft specialization based on information exchange, but we can't know at this stage if the interaction was collaborative, it may also have been coercive in some way. Human behavior is complex. This study encourages further mapping and stone sourcing, and our excavations continue to shed new light on moai carving.

  3. Abbas Gullet:

    This (is) ... what we understand, (they) were quarry workers. They were sleeping when they were attacked early hours of this morning.

  4. Elysee Yanogo:

    We don't have information about when they are going to reopen, that's why I follow my mother to the quarry to help her.

  5. Bharavi:

    The undertaking of a careless man succeeds not, though he use the right expedients: a clever hunter, though well placed in ambush, kills not his quarry if he falls asleep.
