How to say world in sign language?

  1. world

How to use world in a sentence?

  1. Cometan:

    Despite the bright lights and brilliant diversities of the world always remember to return home every once in a while.

  2. Agatha Christie:

    Your travel life has the aspect of a dream. It is something outside the normal, yet you are in it. It is peopled with characters you have never seen before and in all probability will never see again. It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness, and pangs of longing... But you are like the Vikings who have gone into a world of adventure, and home is not home until you return.

  3. Giorgio de Chirico:

    There is much more mystery in the shadow of a man walking on a sunny day, than in all religions of the world.

  4. RVM:

    Nothing in this world is Good or Bad. Our thinking makes it so. A knife is good when a surgeon uses it to save a life & bad when a terrorist uses it to kill.

  5. United States:

    The Chinese are very good at taking advantage of opportunities, which they may have been able to do in the recent past with our focus on the Middle East for the first part of the 2000s and following that the financial crisis, we have to get back to doing what we do well. Our soft power is incredibly more powerful than their soft power. They don't really have that same kind of attractiveness that the United States system has, and I think that's because our partners around the world know we stand by them and know we won't impose our will on them, that we'll work together with them.
