How to use favourite in a sentence?

  1. Letitia Elizabeth Landon:

    Water—the mighty, the pure, the beautiful, the unfathomable—where is thy element so glorious as it is in thine own domain, the deep seas ? What an infinity of power is in the far Atlantic, the boundary of two separate worlds, apart like those of memory and of hope ! or in the bright Pacific, whose tides are turned to gold by a southern sun, and in whose bosom sleep a thousand isles, each covered with the verdure, the flowers, and the fruit of Eden ! But, amid all thy hereditary kingdoms, to which hast thou given beauty, as a birthright, lavishly as thou hast to thy favourite Mediterranean ? The silence of a summer night is now sleeping on its bosom, where the bright stars are mirrored, as if in its depths they had another home and another heaven. A spirit, cleaving air midway between the two, might have paused to ask which was sea, and which was sky. The shadows of earth and earthly things, resting omen-like upon the waters, alone shewed which was the home and which the mirror of the celestial host.

  2. Elvis Costello:

    We will return at the soonest opportunity to play that music and your favourite songs that still make sense to us all.

  3. Julie Dunne:

    What surprised us most was how much he absolutely loved it, it seemed very intuitive for him to cup it within his hands and then lift to his mouth to drink/suckle. We put apple juice in it as that was his favourite drink. I think it is interesting that although the forms change tremendously -- the vessels are very individual -- they do seem to retain a basic bowl/cup shape that fits perfectly within a baby's cupped hands. I would also say I think this shows us the love and care these prehistoric people had for their babies. They are almost toys as well as baby bottles and surely would have make the infants laugh.

  4. Frank Marshall:

    That’s one of my favourite movies, if you were in a script writing class I would just give you that script and say this is a perfect script.

  5. Chief Customer Officer Jill Easterbrook:

    One of the biggest things they've been saying is that they want prices which are simple, consistent and low, the changes we're making today are a first step in that direction -- and we've focused on many of the favourite brands customers choose every day.
