How to use cupidity in a sentence?

  1. Clive Staples Lewis:

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

  2. John Crowley, Of Marvels And Monsters, Washington Post, October 18, 1998:

    Curiosity was a form of lust, a wandering cupidity of the eye and the mind.
