How to use articulate in a sentence?

  1. Rachel Walton:

    Stephanie Mines is brilliant in her ability to articulate the complexities of shock and trauma, along with the framework for healing that she has developed. This makes her classes deeply gratifying and inspiring. I now have invaluable tools that support me in caring for myself, as well as skills and a new perspective that helps me in my care of others.

  2. Mark Wahlberg:

    God has continued to bless me and put me in this situation not to continue to grow and work on Mark Wahlberg the person, but to do his work and finally giving me the skills and the tools to go out there and articulate the message that he wants me to.

  3. Hannah Arendt:

    Totalitarianism begins in contempt for what you have. The second step is the notion: “Things must change—no matter how, Anything is better than what we have.” Totalitarian rulers organize this kind of mass sentiment, and by organizing it articulate it, and by articulating it make the people somehow love it. They were told before, thou shalt not kill; and they didn’t kill. Now they are told, thou shalt kill; and although they think it’s very difficult to kill, they do it because it's now part of the code of behavior. They learn whom to kill and how to kill and how to do it together. This is the much talked about Gleichschaltung—the coordination process. You are coordinated not with the powers that be, but with your neighbor—coordinated with the majority. But instead of communicating with the other you are now glued to him. And you feel of course marvelous. Totalitarianism appeals to the very dangerous emotional needs of people who live in complete isolation and in fear of one another.

  4. Joseph Gordon-Levitt:

    He's articulate, smart, very much the same, i've been seeing him off and on for a year -- actually, more than that. I saw him last week or two weeks ago to show him the final film.
