How to use resolve in a sentence?

  1. André Maurois:

    The need to express oneself in writing springs from a mal-adjustment to life, or from an inner conflict which the adolescent (or the grown man) cannot resolve in action. Those to whom action comes as easily as breathing rarely feel the need to break loose from the real, to rise above, and describe it... I do not mean that it is enough to be maladjusted to become a great writer, but writing is, for some, a method of resolving a conflict, provided they have the necessary talent.

  2. Packers CEO Mark Murphy:

    This is an issue that we have been working on for several months. Brian Gutekunst, Matt LaFleur and I have flown out on a number of occasions to meet with Aaron. We are very much aware of Aaron's concerns and have been working with him( and his agent Dave Dunn) to resolve them. We remain committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond. He is not only a tremendously talented player, but has developed into a true leader for us. The relationship that Aaron has forged with Matt LaFleur and the other offensive coaches has propelled us to the brink of Super Bowl in two straight years. We look forward to competing for another Super Bowl championship with Aaron as our leader.

  3. Marcos Souza:

    Bolsonaro expresses his love for the dictatorship because he thinks that violence will resolve the countrys problems.

  4. Isoroku Yamamoto, After Pearl Harbor, Japanese Admiral:

    I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.

  5. Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif:

    We'll see, all issues are hard until you resolve them and all issues are easy if you resolve them.
