How to use gall in a sentence?

  1. Jeb Bush:

    Donald Trump had the gall to go after my mother.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    I've been going to school board meetings, sending emails to them over the last six, seven months, and none of them responded, and now he has the gall to go out and post an opinion piece in our York Dispatch.
