sound practical judgment;
"Common sense is not so common"
"he hasn't got the sense God gave little green apples"
"fortunately she had the good sense to run away"
fortitude and determination;
"he didn't have the guts to try it"
- He didn't have the gumption to keep his mouth shut.
- It takes gumption to quit a good paying job.
- He's a nice enough lad,but he doesn't seem to have much gumption.
If he'd any gumption he'd give himself up.出自： J. Wainwright
