How to use nemesis in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Women do learn how to be submissive to your husbands, because it brings about true love. Besides, nothing weakens a man like a humble wife. Yes! you heard me right, you can and will terminate marriage pressure by submitting to your husband. Moreover, any woman who shows off how more intelligent or better off she is than her husband will sooner or later have high blood pressure as her nemesis or punishment. -Emeasoba George

  2. Eric Hoffer:

    The link between ideas and action is rarely direct. There is almost always an intermediate step in which the idea is overcome. De Tocqueville points out that it is at times when passions start to govern human affairs that ideas are most obviously translated into political action. The translation of ideas into action is usually in the hands of people least likely to follow rational motives. Hence, it is that action is often the nemesis of ideas, and sometimes of the men who formulate them. One of the marks of the truly vigorous society is the ability to dispense with passion as a midwife of action - the ability to pass directly from thought to action.

  3. Del Percio:

    This started when he first faced a primary challenge in 2014, that brought him to the left and this challenge has brought him further to the left, and he’s staking ground with his nemesis [Mayor] Bill de Blasio to be the main progressive in New York.
