How to use wick in a sentence?

  1. Prem Rawat:

    There is a great lamp within you, and the rays of that lamp are your life. In these little lamps outside, the wick burns oil and then burns out. The lamp within does not burn anything, but gives bliss.

  2. Eli Roth:

    When people watch a trailer, they’re judging based on two-and-a-half minutes of material, and if it’s Bruce Willis shooting a gun, cut to AC/DC, some people are going to draw that conclusion. What I really try to do more than anything is show it how it really is, and leave it for the audience to decide, one thing I’m very conscious of as a filmmaker in Hollywood is not telling the audience what to think, or how to think, and you can make the same argument about ‘John Wick’ or ‘Taken.’ Any action movie you can say is a pro-gun movie. It’s giving a story that allows people to discuss a difficult subject. In the same way ‘Get Out’ came out, everyone was allowed to discuss race and racism because of the movie.

  3. William Arthur Ward:

    Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.

  4. Paul Dergarabedian:

    The marketplace was so dominated by John Wick, its tough when one movie overperforms by this kind of magnitude.
