How to use tumble in a sentence?

  1. Donald Trump:

    The Kentuky( sic) Derby decision was not a good one, it was a rough and tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch. Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close !

  2. Alistair Boxall:

    This is very much a preliminary study, we don't have exact evidence from where this is coming from -- it could be that most of these materials may be coming from house dust and the use of plastic containers and packaging or, for example, nylon fibers from our tumble dryer -- and this could potentially outweigh the environmental routes of exposure.

  3. Liu Jingde:

    After yesterday's tumble, we are still seeing energy and banks backing down but the scope of the back down won't be that great.

  4. Aaron McDonald:

    I currently have a client who just yesterday reported such a behavior in her dog, Isis. Her toddler has a tendency to climb and tumble. As a response, the dog now stands behind her to brace her fall. The owner gave no such instruction. What emotion drives that innovation, if not feelings of empathy ? Empathy is found at the heart of social attachment.

  5. Clifton Fadiman:

    To divide one's life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.
