How to use wring in a sentence?

  1. Nick Papageorge:

    We need to understand these differences because we can wring our hands, and we can blame and shame, but in a way it doesn’t matter, policymakers just need to recognize who is going to socially distance, for how long, why and under what circumstances to give us accurate predictions of how the disease will spread and help us establish policies that will be useful.

  2. Joseph Dunford:

    So, I think for all of us, we should give Secretary Tillerson full support in attempting to resolve this diplomatically and economically, even as we recognize that it may not happen, and there may have to be a follow-up option, which is the military option, we can wring our hands and say it will never happen, or we can roll up our sleeves and make an effort to have a concerted economic and diplomatic plan that does cause KJU, Kim Jong Un, to come to the table and begin to have a conversation, at least stop the path that he’s on right now, which is further development of intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear capability. And to me it makes all the sense in the world to prove the theory of the case and to work this for a few more months.

  3. George Sand:

    It is sad, no doubt, to exhaust one's strength and one's days in cleaving the bosom of this jealous earth, which compels us to wring from it the treasures of its fertility, when a bit of the blackest and coarsest bread is, at the end of the day's work, the sole recompense and the sole profit attaching to so arduous a toil.

  4. Lucinda Creighton:

    The tech companies basically don't see this as a priority, they wring their hands, they say this is terrible, but what they're not doing is preventing this from reappearing.

  5. Linda Matheny:

    I'm going to wring his neck, what he was doing up there with only flip-flops, I have no idea.
