How to use antiquity in a sentence?

  1. Joseph Addison:

    It is folly for an eminent person to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected by it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph.

  2. Mick Mulroy:

    The philosopher Socrates once asked why all men praise liberty but so many neglect to acquire self-discipline. Without the virtue of temperance, he reasoned, none of us can truly become wise or free, as we’re bound to be misled and enslaved by our own passions. It was the Stoic school of philosophy, though, founded a century after Socrates’ death, which turned this simple insight into a whole way of life. Socrates taught that in order to attain wisdom, we must free ourselves from violent passions, such as greed and anger. Today, although we cherish our freedoms more than ever, we’ve largely forgotten that they’re meaningless without the strength of character to make use of them well. For Stoics, the uncomplaining endurance required in Greek military training provided an obvious means of learning discipline. Perhaps for that reason, many of the greatest philosophers of antiquity were soldiers.

  3. Henry David Thoreau:

    What is a country without rabbits and partridges They are among the most simple and indigenous animal products ancient and venerable familes known to antiquity as to modern times of the very hue and substance of Nature, nearest allied to leaves and to the ground.

  4. Gilad Itach:

    It is difficult not to be impressed by the sight of the immense underground reservoir quarried out so many years ago, in antiquity, rainwater collection and storage was a fundamental necessity. With an annual rainfall of 500 millimeters( 20 inches), the region’s winter rains would easily have filled the huge reservoir.

  5. Robert Spengler:

    This study is important for understanding the antiquity of drug use.
