How to use gratify in a sentence?

  1. Samuel Johnson:

    When once a man has made celebrity necessary to his happiness, he has put it in the power of the weakest and most timorous malignity, if not to take away his satisfaction, at least to withhold it. His enemies may indulge their pride by airy negligence and gratify their malice by quiet neutrality.

  2. Mark Twain:

    Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

  3. Baruch Spinoza:

    Laws which prescribe what everyone must believe, and forbid men to say or write anything against this or that opinion, are often passed to gratify, or rather to appease the anger of those who cannot abide independent minds.

  4. William Penn:

    If thou wouldn't conquer thy weakness thou must not gratify it.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Whenever you're grateful of whatever you have, you're unknowingly telling God that you're not bothered about your lacks/needs. And consequently, he (God) will gratify all your lacks/needs. So, come on, be/remain thankful of whatever you have presently no matter how small it seems to you. For, God will surely end up giving you more and never less.
