How to use ripple in a sentence?

  1. Lewis Hamilton:

  2. Robert F. Kennedy, South Africa, 1966:

    It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

  3. President George W. Bush:

    It may just be somebody who is on the team says, ‘I went to an amazing clinic and I got help and you ought to try the same thing.’ To the extent that can ripple through the vet community, it’s going to help a lot.

  4. Robert F. Kennedy:

    It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and injustice.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Dare to add some value to the lives of others. Because each time you improve or better someone else's life. You are unknowingly sending forth a ripple of hope in what appears to be a hopeless life. You are as well giving a meaning to what seems to be a meaningless life. Yes of course, that's just what you would end up doing and achieving in someone else's life or other people's lives, each time you add some value to a life or more. Besides, it pays to do just that (mark you). -Emeasoba George
