How to use steer in a sentence?

  1. Bruce Smith:

    Watch out for any event that is taking over 20 percent of your money, some are even charging 30 percent or more these days. I would just steer clear of those.

  2. Adam Sharp:

    I would not be surprised if the voices in the company that may have been trying to steer towards moderation and trying to find a middle ground have sort of stepped away from that.

  3. Erik Pevernagie:

    To assure good timing we need right decisions, patience and persistence. Good timing needs willpower to steer clear of confusion, disorder and … discontent. We need not blame ourselves for possible "bad" timing later on. ( "Wrong time. Wrong place." )

  4. Michael Bluth:

    Acting changed for me a while ago when I started to become disenchanted with pretending to be other people, i’m not interested in tricking you into thinking I’m somebody else. My challenge with acting has now changed into a different goal: to give me another hand on the wheel, along with directing, to steer the audience through the story.

  5. Anania Ncube:

    One day I attended a livestock auction where a cross-breed steer was sold for more money than a big indigenous bull which I expected to fetch more. That won me over.
