It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
While gossip among women is universally ridiculed as low and trivial, gossip among men, especially if it is about women, is called theory, or idea, or fact.

It is universally agreed that Jean Renoir was one of the greatest of all directors, and he was also one of the warmest and most entertaining.
Our lives are universally shortened by our ignorance.
In the past I've made movies that were pretty universally liked. You can't really hate them. You can discard them, but you can't really hate them.
I'm really excited about anything that is able to address the really big markets, so anything that's universally appealing.
I'm a little sheepish about it. Whenever I meet fans and they're like, 'Oh, you're so sexy,' I just don't get that. There's no way one man can be universally sexy.
