If the resident zoologist of Galaxy X had visited the earth 5 million years ago while making his inventory of inhabited planets in the universe, he would surely have corrected his earlier report that apes Showed more promise than Old World monkeys and noted that monkeys had overcome an original disadvantage to gain domination among primates.

Sudden and magnificent, the sun's broad golden disc Showed itself over the horizon facing them; and the first rays, shooting across the level water-meadows, took the animals full in the eyes and dazzled them. When they were able to look once more, the Vision had vanished, and the air was full of the carol of birds that hailed the dawn.Kenneth Grahame
But the novels of women were not affected only by the necessarily narrow range of the writer's experience. They Showed, at least in the nineteenth century, another characteristic which may be traced to the writer's sex. In Middlemarch and in Jane Eyre we are conscious not merely of the writer's character, as we are conscious of the character of Charles Dickens, but we are conscious of a woman's presence of someone resenting the treatment of her sex and pleading for its rights.virginia woolf

His most substantial contribution to American politics is that he Showed that in the right conditions and with the right strategy, you can drive an independent populist truck straight through the Potemkin village that is the party system... His legacy is that he Showed that a centrist candidate with a healthy disrespect for big everything — corporations, government, media — can rally the unhappy, inchoate middle and ride that into office.jesse ventura

His sermon never said or Showed That Earth is foul, that Heaven is gracious, Without refreshment on the road From Jerome, or from Athanasius.
