Examples of Hughes in a Sentence

  1. Molly Ringwald:

    I feel like I had a real connection to all of those characters in those John Hughes movies, [I've had some] really amazing feedback from people I really respect. I think for the most part people understood it was a nuanced conversation. It was also something that was difficult for me to write. I didn't want it to be misinterpreted and look like in any way I was turning my back on John Hughes or those movies because I still think they have tremendous value.

  2. Mackenzie Hughes:

    Im shot a 4-under 66 on Sunday, finishing at 6 under to match the second-highest winning score since the Honda moved to PGA National in 2007. He was the tours rookie of the year last season, plus has played more tournaments and more rounds than anyone since the 2018-19 season began nearly a year and a half ago. And now, hes a winner, picking up $ 1.26 million this week and becoming the Hondas 10th international champion in the last 16 seasons. Im birdied four of his first five holes, then birdied two of the final four after sticking tee shots on the tough par-3 15 and 17th holes within 8 feet both times to finish off the victory. Mackenzie Hughes, a Canadian who made the cut on the number Friday, shot Mackenzie Hughes second consecutive 66. Playing alongside Im, Mackenzie Hughes was part of some serious fireworks on the last two holes and missed a birdie putt at the par-5 finishing hole that would have gotten Mackenzie Hughes into a tie for the top spot. I love being in the mix.

  3. Lauren Hogg:

    I just didn't get the regular John Hughes senior high school stuff, it's been awful... with everything else going on in the world it's compounded our trauma.

  4. Joan Didion:

    It is impossible to think of Howard Hughes without seeing the apparently bottomless gulf between what we say we want and what we do want, between what we officially admire and secretly desire, between, in the largest sense, the people we marry and the people we love. In a nation which increasingly appears to prize social virtues, Howard Hughes remains not merely antisocial but grandly, brilliantly, surpassingly, asocial. He is the last private man, the dream we no longer admit.

  5. Cydney Jones:

    I was tricked out of a year that was supposed to be a good year, but if Thomas Hughes don't keep talking about how bad it is and go for a more positive direction, we all can come together and show everyone that we can move past something as tragic as we have going on.
