Examples of Guess in a Sentence

  1. Marco Rubio:

    That's the bill that funds our troops. Even the Iron Dome for Israel. So I guess my point is each time he's had to choose between strong national defense and some of the isolationist tendencies in American politics, he seems to side with the isolationist, and this is an important issue to have a debate over. It's not personal.

  2. Prof.Salam Al Shereida:

    Guess who puzzled their minds and freed their imaginations.

  3. Warren Groen:

    It grasps them with its talons and then uses its razor-sharp beak to rip its victims to shreds, to basically tear it apart limb by limb, and I guess the shame about making this a state bird is it would serve as a much better mascot for Planned Parenthood.

  4. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Times have changed and things are no longer the way they used to be. And so, you don't really have to travel around the world to make a global or worldwide impact. Because, you can make it (global impact) right where you are presently via the internet. As a matter of fact, I'm yet to travel around the world as a person. But, guess what? my thought-provoking quotes, ideas, insights, motivations and inspirations have already travelled around the world on my own behalf. Oh! yes, you heard me right, I'm being quoted already globally (all over the internet and even beyond it). ~Emeasoba George

  5. Jack Sharp:

    Can you imagine working at the following Company? It has a little over 500 employees with the following statistics: 29 have been accused of spousal abuse. 7 have been arrested for fraud. 19 have been accused of writing bad checks. 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses. 3 have been arrested for assault. 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit. 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges. 8 have been arrested for shoplifting. 21 are current defendants in law suits. 84 were stopped for drunk driving in 1998 alone. Can you guess which organization this is? Give up? It's the 535 members of your United States Congress. The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.
