Examples of Milton in a Sentence

  1. Nazir Khan:

    I know that Milton Winger's going to need further therapy, and so my training has made me cautiously optimistic in a way, because I know he still has a road to go, but, you know, I'm happy for him, because I know that he was very scared before the surgery... it was a relatively quicker surgery than we anticipated, we didn't have to do a reconstruction, and he did well.

  2. Joshua Greene:

    Milton said, ‘You can live with my family,’ ’I’ll pay for all your needs. And you can go to acting school, dancing school — whatever you want to do. I’ll make sure you’re covered.’… For about a year, she was in hiding. Nobody knew where she was. She wanted control of script approval, directing approval, take over her career and not be the dumb blond t**s and a** girl. Which is exactly what she hated and wanted to get away from. Milton wanted to be a producer and direct films. It’s not a secret for a photographer wanting to do that.

  3. Kent Jarrell:

    We expect to appropriately resolve outstanding concerns the Attorney General's Office has concerning the interpretation of the 1909 deed of Milton S. Hershey, where he outlined his wishes to provide a funding mechanism to provide the Milton Hershey School with sustainable financial resources in perpetuity.

  4. William Blake:

    To me this world is all one continued vision of fancy or imagination, and I feel flattered when I am told so. What is it sets Homer, Virgil and Milton in so high a rank of art? Why is the Bible more entertaining and instructive than any other book? Is it not because they are addressed to the imagination, which is spiritual sensation, and but immediately to the understanding or reason?

  5. Yvonne Craig:

    It was a wonderful experience, the crew liked one another, the cast liked one another. It doesn't happen often, and when it does, it's a joy to go to work every day. I got to work with people that I would never have the chance to work with. We had Ethel Merman, I would never have met Milton Berle, I got to work with Milton Berle, and Milton Berle was a delight.
