How to use shorthand in a sentence?

  1. Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson:

    This is something that I cherish. Once in a friend's home I came across this blessing, and took it down in shorthand ... it says something I like to live with Oh Thou, who dwellest in so many homes, possess Thyself of this. Bless the life that is sheltered here. Grant that trust and peace and comfort abide within, and that love and life and usefulness may go out from this home forever.

  2. Charles Baudelaire:

    If photography is allowed to stand in for art in some of its functions it will soon supplant or corrupt it completely thanks to the natural support it will find in the stupidity of the multitude.

These constitute a kind of shorthand of ideas which helps make communication quicker and more efficient. That is what we mean when we say figuratively of another person, We speak the same language.

  4. John Dowd:

    The mistake was I should have put the lying to the FBI in a separate line referencing his plea, instead, I put it together and it made all you guys go crazy. A tweet is shorthand.

  5. Leo Tolstoy:

    Music is the shorthand of emotion.
