Examples of Englishman in a Sentence

  1. Junius:

    The liberty of the Press is the Palladium of all the civil, political and religious rights of an Englishman.

  2. Tom Margerison, "A Random Walk in Science" compiled by R. L. Weber, edited by E. Mendoza:

    Report writing, like motor-car driving and love-making, is one of those activities which almost every Englishman thinks he can do well without instruction. The results are of course usually abominable.

  3. Brendan Behan:

    He was born an Englishman and remained one for years.

  4. Leo Tolstoy:

    A Frenchman is self-assured because he regards himself personally both in mind and body as irresistibly attractive to men and women. An Englishman is self-assured as being a citizen of the best-organized state in the world and therefore, as an Englishman, always knows what he should do and knows that all he does as an Englishman is undoubtedly correct. An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets himself and other people. A Russian is self-assured just because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe that anything can be known. The German's self-assurance is worst of all, stronger and more repulsive than any other, because he imagines that he knows the truth -- science -- which he himself has invented but which is for him the absolute truth.

  5. Charles Babbage:

    Propose to any englishman any principle, or any instrument, however admirable, and you will observe that the whole effort of the english mind is directed to find a difficulty, defect or an impossibility in it.
