How to use peasant in a sentence?

  1. 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.

  2. Thomas Widmann:

    The hypotheses range from a greater propensity to homemade remedies, like medicinal herbs used in peasant tradition ; there are those who assume a more marked anti-authoritarian tendency than elsewhere, for historical reasons ; but I think more practical hypotheses should also be considered, such as logistical difficulties, for those who live at the bottom of a mountain valley, going to a city vaccination center can mean wasting a lot of time.

  3. King Henry IV of France:

    Fr., I want there to be no peasant in my realm so poor that he will not have a chicken in his pot every Sunday.

  4. Ruth Barcena:

    The ones who died were innocent people, [security forces] had no right to take their lives. I know what type of person my husband was; he was humble, he loved life, he gave everything for his family. A fighter. Despite being a peasant, he never had his head down.

  5. John Updike:

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