Pernicious is stronger than injurious; that which is injurious is capable of doing harm; that which is pernicious is likely to be destructive.

How to use baneful in a sentence?

  1. Herman Melville:

    If some books are deemed most baneful and their sale forbid, how, then, with deadlier facts, not dreams of doting men? Those whom books will hurt will not be proof against events. Events, not books, should be forbid.
