How to use encroachments in a sentence?

  1. James Madison:

    Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty.

  2. James Madison:

    I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

  3. Henry Clay:

    The arts of power and its minions are the same in all countries and in all ages. It marks its victim; denounces it; and excites the public odium and the public hatred, to conceal its own abuses and encroachments.

  4. Thomas Jefferson:

    I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical. Unsuccessful rebellions, indeed, generally establish the encroachments on the rights of the people, which produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions as not to discourage them too much. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.

  5. Gauri Maulekhi:

    It is not a 'monkey menace' but a human menace invading wildlife by cutting forests at large scale and allowing industries, human encroachments in forests are pushing out wild animals like monkeys from their settlements in search of food and shelter.
