How to use impurity in a sentence?

  1. Zhang Kun:

  2. William Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece Ver. 124:

  3. Erin Michos:

    What we know about the dangers of this impurity comes primarily from laboratory studies. It is a toxin that can affect the liver and cause liver fibrosis or scarring and liver tumors in rats. So it is assumed to be toxic to humans, as well, in these animal studies, they usually give large quantities, so again, the risk is likely not the same equivalent in humans.

  4. Jean Rostand:

  5. William O. Douglas:

    Any test that turns on what is offensive to the communitys standards is too loose, too capricious, too destructive of freedom of expression to be squared with the First Amendment. Under that test, juries can censor, suppress, and punish what they dont like, provided the matter relates to sexual impurity or has a tendency to excite lustful thoughts. This is community censorship in one of its worst forms. It creates a regime where in the battle between the literati and the Philistines, the Philistines are certain to win.
