How to use insure in a sentence?

  1. Bertrand Russell, from the essay "The Science to Save Us From Science":

    But all who are not lunitics are agreed about certain things: That it is better to be alive than dead, better to be adequately fed than starved, better to be free than to be a slave. Many people desire these things only for themselves and their friends; they are quite content that their enemies should suffer. These people can be refuted by science: Mankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself, you must resign yourself to seeing others also happy.

Our hearts and home are open to her, and we will do everything we can to insure she remains safe and healthy, we remain concerned about her emotional and physical well-being. We look forward to the day our family is finally reunited.

    A lot of these countries are saying, I'm sorry, if I'm sitting in the Baltic States or if I'm Poland -- the only thing I really care about right now is the Russian bear, and I want to insure that the Russians don't come for us.
