How to use mistake in a sentence?

  1. John Locke:

    Tis a Mistake to think this Fault [tyranny] is proper only to Monarchies; other Forms of Government are liable to it, as well as that. For where-ever the Power that is put in any hands for the Government of the People, and the Preservation of their Properties, is applied to other ends, and made use of to impoverish, harass, or subdue them to the Arbitrary and Irregular Commands of those that have it: There it presently becomes Tyranny, whether those that thus use it are one or many.

  2. Khalid Jone:

    The biggest mistake I made in my life was to demand asylum in the Netherlands.

  3. Avni Joshi:

    If they initiate this process at 16, then they will not have any difficulty by the time they are 18, as the parents have already had a trial run of being independent even though the child is still at home with the parent available to cross check for compliance, the biggest mistake is to underestimate their disease and health care needs.

  4. David Schonfeld:

    If you can say to yourself,' if only I had been there or if only I had been more cautious or if only I had done something or not done something that I did.' That gives you the illusion that you can control future events by simply not making that mistake again, the alternative is understanding that you had no role in this. You could not prevent it. Therefore, you can't prevent it from happening again.

  5. State Tony Blinken:

    It would be a serious mistake for anyone to try to change the existing status quo by force.
