How to use gall in a sentence?

  1. Abraham Lincoln:

    When the conduct of men is designed to be influenced, persuasion, kind unassuming persuasion, should ever be adopted. It is an old and true maxim that 'a drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gall.' So with men. If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his sincere friend. Therein is a drop of honey that catches his heart, which, say what he will, is the great highroad to his reason, and which, once gained, you will find but little trouble in convincing him of the justice of your cause, if indeed that cause is really a good one.

  2. John Locke:

    Our incomes are like our shoes; if too small, they gall and pinch us; but if too large, they cause us to stumble and to trip.

  3. William Shakespeare, Romeo, in Romeo and Juliet, act 1, sc. 1.:

    Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs, Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers’ eyes, Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers’ tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, A choking gall and a preserving sweet.

  4. Jean Kerr:

    One of the most difficult things to contend with in a hospital is that assumption on the part of the staff that because you have lost your gall bladder you have also lost your mind.

  5. Senator Paul:

    Yesterday the Saudi foreign minister chose to lecture me on television about the Jamal Khashoggi murder, he said my opinion was based on emotion and speculation and that we should presume innocence for the crown prince. My response to him is that it takes a lot of damn gall for Saudi Arabia, with a dictatorship with 3,000 political prisoners held without trial, to lecture the US on the presumption of innocence.
