How to use thinking in a sentence?

  1. Charlie Gerow:

  2. Peter Marks:

    We take our responsibility for reviewing these vaccines very seriously because we're parents as well, and in looking over the data, I think parents can feel reassured that we have set a standard by which we feel that if something does not meet that standard, we can't proceed forward, for those parents who really feel this, we empathize with them, because I suspect that they're not only concerned about the current situation, even though there's a drop in cases, but they're concerned about future variants that could potentially come along, and that's how we're thinking as well. So this was not based on the dropping number of cases, because it's still a staggering number of cases each day that we're having.

  3. Sybil Adelman:

    I thought I loved him, but I really just needed him. There was so much death and when I was in bed with him, I wasn't thinking about death...Look, what I'm trying to say is that we can't know what's in another person's heart, we can't even know what's in our own. Life turns on a dime, and somehow we muddle through.

  4. Sasha Koehn:

    It didn't make sense for us to not do it this way, maybe that's us being naive or not thinking like a traditional business manager, but I don't see how we could have got this started any other way.

  5. Gordana Biernat:

    Thinking is a brain activity. Knowing is a gut feeling. Thinking is movement. Knowing is stillness. Thinking takes time. Knowing is now.
