How to use curses in a sentence?

  1. Isaac Mashman:

    Generational curses are actually blessings in disguise; the mistakes were already made for you, now all you have to do is apply the solutions.

  2. Manu:

    Treat no one with disdain; with patience bear Reviling language; with an angry man Be never angry; blessings give for curses.*

  3. Terence:

    Riches get their value from the mind of the possessor; they are blessings to those who know how to use them, and curses to those who do not.

  4. Richard Jordan:

    The law demands good works and uses its terror--rejection, shame, fear of punishment, unanswered prayer, personal tragedy, etc.--as motivation. Here performance is a necessity to secure the blessings and avoid the curses. Grace, on the other hand, allows us to serve on a different basis--not from fear but on the basis of love and gratitude, from appreciation and gladness for blessings freely given and freely received.

  5. Christopher Faraone:

    Most of the curses are what we call binding spells: they aim at binding or inhibiting the performance of a rival. A lot of them have to do with legal cases. They say things like, Bind the tongue and the thoughts of so-and-so, who is about to testify against me on Monday, we have some that are aimed at rival musicians or actors, and a couple that seem to be connected with athletics. We have some that run something like this, Bind Helen, so that she is unsuccessful when she flirts or makes love with Demetrius. But the great majority of them seem to be connected with lawsuits.
