How to use guessing in a sentence?

  1. Jerome Seymour Bruner:

    The shrewd guess, the fertile hypothesis, the courageous leap to a tentative conclusion-these are the most valuable coins of the thinker at work. But in most schools guessing is heavily penalized and is associated somehow with laziness.

  2. Gary Rabine:

    Bernie is not a guy that cares about ring-kissing or anything like that, he's a no b-s guy, and I'm guessing that Bernie couldn't care less whether he talks to him or not.

  3. Jeff Chapin:

    Buying a mattress ranks up there with buying a used car for the worst customer experience, you go to a mattress retailer, and they’ve got 50 beds for you to try. There’s no way you can differentiate. You end up buying one and taking it home and second-guessing yourself. We wanted to eliminate all that.

  4. Ezio Auditore da Firenze:

    When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, this understanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time: once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially, mio caro. For you, our children, our brothers and sisters. And for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life, and keeps us guessing. Endless affection, mia Sofia. Forever yours, Ezio Auditore.

  5. Rudy Giuliani:

    Look, you never know. It sharpens up all our answers then, then we're not guessing at what The President knows. We know whether to say it or not.
