How to use peasant in a sentence?

  1. John Updike:

    Every marriage tends to consist of an aristocrat and a peasant. Of a teacher and a learner.

  2. Anuj Somany:

    A person who is an indolent or a peasant can never lead the intelligent or smart people, but only sows seed of sycophancy weed within the organization to merely feed on own materialistic need and fulfill the greed of a few others at the topmost position and everyone can read clearly that s/he does never heed of the good deed of sincere and hard workers.

  3. Abbe Guillaume Raynal:

    The only difference between a genius and one of common capacity is that the former anticipates and explores what the latter accidentally hits upon; but even the man of genius himself more frequently employs the advantages that chance presents him; it is the lapidary who gives value to the diamond which the peasant has dug up without knowing its value.

  4. Hans Konig:

    For all the gold and silver stolen and shipped to Spain did not make the Spanish people richer. It gave their kings an edge in the balance of power for a time, a chance to hire more mercenary soldiers for their wars. They ended up losing those wars anyway, and all that was left was a deadly inflation, a starving population, the rich richer, the poor poorer, and a ruined peasant class.

  5. Carl Sagan:

    Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
