How to use squander in a sentence?

  1. George Sand:

    Faith is an excitement and an enthusiasm: it is a condition of intellectual magnificence to which we must cling as to a treasure, and not squander on our way through life in the small coin of empty words, or in exact and priggish argument.

  2. John Mica:

    Congress has been reluctant to give Amtrak the money because they squander it. They don't have a plan that has milestones and can be seriously considered, we're a Third World country when it comes to passenger rail and we need to look at the alternatives out there.

  3. Rainer Maria Rilke:

    Physical pleasure is a sensual experience no different from pure seeing or the pure sensation with which a fine fruit fills the tongue; it is a great unending experience, which is given us, a knowing of the world, the fullness and the glory of all knowing. And not our acceptance of it is bad; the bad thing is that most people misuse and squander this experience and apply it as a stimulant at the tired spots of their lives and as distraction instead of a rallying toward exalted moments.

  4. Benjamin Franklin:

    Dost thou love life? Than do not squander time, for it is the stuff life is made of.

  5. John Gay:

    Can you support the expense of a husband, hussy, in gaming, drinking and whoring? Have you money enough to carry on the daily quarrels of man and wife about who shall squander most?
