How to use derive in a sentence?

  1. Anuj Somany:

    There is a lot of people who do not mind to follow or support even a bandit like a spiritual master or devotional pundit as long as they can derive merely their own profit out of this parasitic relationship and that's it.

  2. Maria Montessori:

    The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena. In our system, she must become a passive, much more than an active, influence, and her passivity shall be composed of anxious scientific curiosity and of absolute respect for the phenomenon which she wishes to observe. The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon.

  5. Thiruman Archunan:

    The greatest intellectual achievement of men should be not only in understanding the importance of the reason, but to consciously and boldly overthrow it as and when the welfare of others’ warrants it. Why should anybody think about others welfare? This is because the reason’s practical worth is only with respect to others. Instinct is often enough to take care of an individual, but the reason is necessary to meet the societal requirements and also to derive benefits from it.
