How to use drunkenness in a sentence?

  1. William Penn:

    All excess is ill, but drunkenness is of the worst sort. It spoils health, dismounts the mind, and unmans men. It reveals secrets, is quarrelsome, lascivious, impudent, dangerous and bad.

  2. William Shakespeare:

    I hate ingratitude more in a man than lying, vainness, babbling, drunkenness, or any taint of vice whose strong corruption inhabits our frail blood.

  3. Bertrand Russell:

    Drunkenness is temporary suicide.

  4. Lucius Annaeus Seneca:

    Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.

  5. John Boswell:

    The New Testament takes no demonstrable position on homosexuality. To suggest that Paul's references to excesses of sexual indulgence involving homosexual behavior are indicative of a general position in opposition to same-sex eroticism is as unfounded as arguing that his condemnation of drunkenness implies opposition to the drinking of wine.
