How to use gilded in a sentence?

  1. Heather Thomson:

    Generally speaking, the women that join the show are not self-absorbed, catty, horrible people. They’re birds in gilded cages. They go in there with the right intention, but then you get sucked into this system of what the viewers want, these women are part of a machine that has awarded them and fed them for outrageous behavior. It’s a career. It’s their check. And they do n’t have other jobs outside of it. And so you become a product of the environment of what the fan is looking for.

  2. Waleed Shahid:

    Breaking up and regulating the Big Tech monopolies will put many of these Democrats in conflict with some of their big money donors — so Big Tech's definitely a way to help prove Matt Stoller grassroots credentials, democrats need to be leading on anti-monopoly issues in order to put an end to a second Gilded Age for those on top and misery for the rest of us.

  3. Mark Twain:

    He would come in and say he changed his mind -- which was a gilded figure of speech, because he didn't have any.

  4. David Guas:

    One fanciful tale traces it to Western European, pre-Christian societies in which whoever found a coin or bean in a special cake was crowned King for the year, whether the story was true or what you believe, Christians have long served King Cakes containing coins or gilded beans for the Feast of the Epiphany or Twelfth Night, a celebration of the visit of the three wise men — the Magi or Kings — to the infant Jesus 12 days after his birth.

  5. Robyn Barnard:

    A gilded cage is still a cage, there are locks on the doors, there is no freedom of movement. It is for all intents and purposes a prison.
