How to use favour in a sentence?

  1. Paschal Donohoe:

    I think it would be reasonable to say that from our point of view we would be in favour of an extension that would create the space to hopefully conclude where we are, but it is a matter that needs full agreement across the European Council.

  2. Anuj Somany:

    When most communication channels go gung-ho over any news and many so-called experts & panelists doing on it their reviews, always found it sensible to never discuss it or air any views in favour or against on the same subject.

  3. Bertrand Russell:

    Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position.

  4. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov:

    We are always in favour of military people talking to each other in a professional way. They understand each other very well, if, as (U.S. Secretary of State) John Kerry has said many times, the United States wants those channels frozen, then be our guest.

  5. Carolyn McCall:

    We are very much happy to talk in favour of Britain remaining in the EU.
