How to use simply in a sentence?

  1. Karl Weick:

    Simply pushing harder within the old boundaries will not do.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Humility is becoming a scarce commodity in today's cold, calculating, and proud society. It is now becoming a forgotten virtue, which often makes me wonder "Why?" In my view, Humility can be manifested in two forms: one being the Internal form of honesty, truth and integrity, i.e. being honest about who we are, and accepting our strenths and weaknesses truthfully; while the second form being the External one, which is associated with how we treat others with respect and dignity. Both Internal and External forms are interdependent, and simply cannot exist independenttly. If that's the case, it can explain why Humility is in short supply.....it's one's lack of honesty and self-respect that germinates her/his lack of respect towards others. Accepting one's own follies with utmost honesty is surely the first step towards humility and getting closer to Supreme Power.

  3. Tim Cook:

    We simply call it, TV.

  4. Michele Powell:

    I'd rather have the ability to do something, if faced with that horrible situation, than to simply duck.

  5. Serhiy Fursa:

    Since there is complete uncertainty about the economic policy of the person who will become president, we simply don't know what is going to happen and that worries the financial community, we need to see what the first decisions are, the first appointments. We probably won't understand how big these risks are earlier than June. Perhaps nothing will change.
