How to use politic in a sentence?

  1. Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire:

    The wicked can have only accomplices, the voluptuous have companions in debauchery, self-seekers have associates, the politic assemble the factions, the typical idler has connections, princes have courtiers. Only the virtuous have friends.

  2. June Jordan:

    If any of us hopes to survive, s/he must meet the extremity of the American female condition with immediate and political response. The thoroughly destructive and indefensible subjugation of the majority of Americans cannot continue except at the peril of the entire body politic.

  3. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

    Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic? Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.

  4. William Punshon:

    Cowardice asks Is it safe Expediency asks Is it politic But Conscience asks Is it right

  5. Tom McMillen:

    The body politic has shifted left, there’s no question about it, and that’s toward more student-athlete empowerment.
