How to use espouse in a sentence?

  1. Valeriya Lutkovskaya:

    People are afraid to express their opinion, they feel fear for their life and future, fear to espouse their faith and speak in their native language.

  2. Swarthmore President Valerie Smith:

    We have heard heartbreaking stories from students who feel unwelcome to the point of wanting to transfer out of our community. Those stories have come from across the spectrum of our student body -- from student protesters to Delta Upsilon, stories such as these reflect our failure to realize the values we so often espouse.

  3. Prime Minister Manuel Valls:

    There is a real danger, especially when the blockade is not resilient enough to hold back a political group that does not espouse our democracy's core values.

  4. Nancy Pelosi:

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi'm not trying to run out the clock. Let House Speaker Nancy Pelosi get sophisticated about this, OK ? we will proceed when we have what we need to proceed, not one day sooner. And everybody has the liberty and the luxury to espouse their own position and to criticize me for trying to go down the path in the most determined positive way. Again, their advocacy for impeachment only gives me leverage.

  5. Hillary Clinton:

    Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world, but it's a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States, yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back.
