How to use purse in a sentence?

  1. Jay McInerney:

    The restaurant thief was lurking around … and grabbed Anne’s bag from the back of her chair. At the time, we didn’t catch it … cops came and we filed a report at the restaurant; their security footage showed a man taking the bag. But when we went back to our hotel room … we were cleaned out. The thieves definitely had taste, they only took the good stuff … It didn’t occur to us at the time about the room key being in Anne’s purse, it couldn’t have been worse luck.

  2. William Shakespeare:

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord, Is the immediate jewel of their souls Who steals my purse steals trash 'tis something, nothing 'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him And makes me poor indeed.

  3. William Howard Taft:

    It is important, of course, that controversies be settled right, but there are many civil questions which arise between individuals in which it is not so important the controversy be settled one way or another as that it be settled. Of course a settlement of a controversy on a fundamentally wrong principle of law is greatly to be deplored, but there must of necessity be many rules governing the relations between members of the same society that are more important in that their establishment creates a known rule of action than that they proceed on one principle or another. Delay works always for the man with the longest purse.

  4. House Republican:

    Congress should stand up and use the power of the purse.

  5. Kate Carr:

    Put something in the back seat where a child seat is always located that you're going to need at your final destination, something you know you're going to look for, like your cell phone, your purse, a briefcase, this, in fact, can happen to anyone, and we've seen it happen to anyone.
