How to use perfect in a sentence?

  1. Marco Danese:

    It's the most difficult one. We cannot compare, for the horses it was perfect.

  2. P. J. O'Rourke:

    The preamble to the Constitution states We, the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare... It doesn't say guarantee the general welfare. And it certainly doesn't say give welfare benefits to all the people in the country who aren't doing so well even if the reason they aren't doing so well is because they're sitting on their butts in front of the TV.

  3. Omar Sy:

    Being French, I really admire Marion Cotillard's work and her journey. She's French and she speaks excellent English, for example, I want to speak perfect English and when I see her speaking, it inspires me and encourages me.

  4. Trevor Noah:

    I love those players and I love how African they are and how French they are. I don’t take their French-ness away, but I don’t think you need to take their African-ness away, that is what I love about America. America is not a perfect country, but what I love about this place is that people can still celebrate their identity in their American-ness. You can go to a St. Patrick’s Day parade in America celebrating that you are Irish.

  5. Dean Genth:

    I think it is absolutely perfect, she needs to have the small events first. With her resume and her viability and the Secret Service protection she requires, she will definitely be doing the big rallies at some point. But I think she is right to start with small events in a grassroots way.
