How to use sorting in a sentence?

  1. Teresa Woodruff:

    It’s a way of sorting egg quality in a way we’ve never been able to assess before, all biology starts at the time of fertilization, yet we know next to nothing about the events that occur in the human.

  2. President Barack Obama:

    What used to be racial segregation now mirrors itself in class segregation, this great sorting (has) taken place. It creates its own politics. There are some communities where not only do I not know poor people, I don't even know people who have trouble paying the bills at the end of the month. I just don't know those people. And so there's less sense of investment in those children.

  3. James Sublett:

    Kids who have egg allergies can get vaccinated - it's a matter of sorting out how allergic they are to the egg, what their risk is, and then working with their pediatrician and a board certified allergy immunologist to try to figure out which is the best pathway to go with the vaccines, because I think the real key is that we don’t want children not vaccinated.

  4. Dorothea Brande:

    The author of genius does keep till his last breath the spontaneity, the ready sensitiveness, of a child, the "innocence of eye" that means so much to the painter, the ability to respond freshly and quickly to new scenes, and to old scenes as though they were new; to see traits and characteristics as though each were new-minted from the hand of God instead of sorting them quickly into dusty categories and pigeon-holing them without wonder or surprise; to feel situations so immediately and keenly that the word "trite" has hardly any meaning for him; and always to see "the correspondences between things" of which Aristotle spoke two thousand years ago.

  5. Jens Lehmann:

    By sorting the bank notes he helped the Nazi regime to benefit economically.
