How to use trash in a sentence?

  1. Jonny Kim:

    You should never think you're too good to do a job. And I think you should be like that in everything you do. 'Be a forever new guy' is what I try to emulate, and I don't mean as in you shouldn't step up to the role and be a leader and delegate appropriately, but never think that you are above taking out the trash or that you're above not respecting the secretary or the lowest junior enlisted.

  2. William Shakespeare:

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord, Is the immediate jewel of their souls Who steals my purse steals trash 'tis something, nothing 'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him And makes me poor indeed.

  3. Dragan Ljeljen:

    Piling up trash affects the quality of water and reduces the quantity of oxygen in it ... animals are coming to the banks to rummage through trash.

  4. Julie Onstot:

    Just get a trash bag, walk around your house, and start putting things in it. You won't be able to really see what needs sorting until you get rid of the true trash surrounding it, this can be done over a period of a few days, so you don't feel overwhelmed. But give yourself a clearer path to clutter-free by literally clearing the path.

  5. Sigmund Freud:

    I have found little that is good about human beings. In my experience most of them, on the whole, are trash.
