How to use persuasion in a sentence?

  1. Sandar Min:

    This is persuasion in the interest of their project. We understand that, they put us in good hotels, treated us to nice meals.

  2. Horace Bushnell:

    If you had the seeds of pestilence in your body you would not have a more active contagion that you have in your tempers, tastes, and principles. Simply to be in this world, whatever you are, is to exert an influence, compared with which mere language and persuasion are feeble.

  3. Abraham Lincoln:

    When the conduct of men is designed to be influenced, persuasion, kind unassuming persuasion, should ever be adopted. It is an old and true maxim that 'a drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gall.' So with men. If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his sincere friend. Therein is a drop of honey that catches his heart, which, say what he will, is the great highroad to his reason, and which, once gained, you will find but little trouble in convincing him of the justice of your cause, if indeed that cause is really a good one.

  4. Aesop:

    Persuasion is often more effectual than force.

  5. Aeschylus (525-456 B.C.), Frag. 146 (trans. by Plumptre).:

    Of all the gods, Death only craves not gifts: Nor sacrifice, nor yet drink-offering poured Avails; no altars hath he, nor is soothed By hymns of praise. From him alone of all The powers of heaven Persuasion holds aloof.
