How to use whale in a sentence?

  1. Jeremy Goldbogen:

    First we have to find a blue whale, which can be very difficult because these animals range across vast swaths of the open ocean. By combining many years of field experience and some luck, we position a small, rigid-hulled, inflatable boat on the whale's left side, we then have to deploy the tag using a six-meter (20-foot) long carbon-fiber pole. As the whale surfaces to breathe, we tag the whale in a location that we think is closest to the heart: just behind the whale's left flipper.

  2. Phyllis McGinley:

    Women are the fulfilled sex. Through our children we are able to produce our own immortality, so we lack that divine restlessness which sends men charging off in pursuit of fortune or fame or an imagined Utopia. That is why we number so few geniuses among us. The wholesome oyster wears no pearl, the healthy whale no ambergris, and as long as we can keep on adding to the race, we harbor a sort of health within ourselves.

  3. Michael Moore:

    This will give us a new understanding of the relationship between whale body condition and health in the context of habitat quality.

  4. Henry Wichura:

    With the whale, everything started.

  5. Yoshinori Shoji:

    I'll admit, it was nice that our boat was the one to kill the first whale in the first hunt after the resumption.
