How to use perhaps in a sentence?

  1. Jose Morales:

    I look at forecasts, not just for GDP (gross domestic product) growth but also earnings growth in emerging markets. I will start to believe that perhaps we are at a turning point when I see those downgrades stabilise, it always goes back to growth.

  2. John Bolton:

    I've already indicated that I'm interested to hear from John Bolton, perhaps among others.

  3. Dean Koontz:

    Perhaps extreme danger strips us of all pretenses, all ambitions, all confusions, focusing us more intensely than we are otherwise ever focused, so that we remember what we otherwise spend most of our lives forgetting that our nature and purpose is, more than anything else, to love and to make love, to take joy from the beauty of the world, to live with an awareness that the future is not as real a place for any of us as are the present and the past.

  4. Victor Shih:

    I thought this was kind of an odd episode, whether that was a warning of sorts to the technology sector as a whole, or perhaps Jack Ma personally. Who knows ? But it's certainly demonstrated the government does not even have to arrest a senior technology executive to erase tens of billions of dollars from a company's market valuation. It just needs to release some kind of information.

  5. Donald Trump:

    His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber. He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for Fraud Treason.
