How to use sweat in a sentence?

  1. Donald Trump:

    It looked like he just came out of a swimming pool. He was soaking wet, he's a meltdown guy. I mean I look at him, he's just pouring sweat. ... We need somebody that doesn't sweat.

  2. Teddy Roosevelt:

    It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

  3. Jean Anouilh:

    To say yes, you have to sweat and roll up your sleeves and plunge both hands into life up to the elbows. It's easy to say no, even if it means dying.

  4. Hesiod:

    Badness you can get easily, in quantity; the road is smooth, and it lies close by, But in front of excellence the immortal gods have put sweat, and long and steer is the way to it.

  5. Coleman Young:

    We have worked, we have sweat, we have bled, we have fought and now we are here, we are standing on the shoulders of our ancestors, of our grandparents, our parents … as we take this city back for the people.
