How to use exalt in a sentence?

  1. John Kennedy, Autobiography of malcolm x:

    Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of our racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.

  2. Matthew 2311, 12 Bible:

    But he that is the greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abused and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

  3. The FARC:

    Common sense indicates that there is no coherence between the words that exalt the ceasefire and those that order to intensify the war.

  4. Book of Proverbs:

    Wisdom is supreme therefore make a full effort to get wisdom. Esteem her and she will exalt your embrace her and she will honor you.

  5. Amos Bronson Alcott:

    Civilization degrades the many to exalt the few.
