How to use precepts in a sentence?

  1. Cary Summers:

    Benjamin Franklin wrote. I firmly believe... without Benjamin Franklin concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel, a reference to the Old Testament biblical story that didn't end well for the builders. The museum also showcases the Bible’s influence on world history, culture, science, art and literature. One section of the museum is devoted to the Bible in America, its influence on presidents and the Founding Fathers like Benjamin Franklin, who quoted the Bible's book to explain the importance of the country's founders to abide by the book's wisdom. Cary Summers said it's important people have information about a book that has had such tremendous impact on the Western world. And it will be presented, warts and all, of how people used – and abused – its precepts. One of the goals of the museum is to put Gutenberg Bible back in the center of conversation.

  2. Daniel Ramirez:

    The Brahmins say that in their books there are many predictions of times in which it will rain. But press those books as strongly as you can, you can not get out of them a drop of water. So you can not get out of all the books that contain the best precepts the smallest good deed.

  4. Samuel Smiles:

    Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience. Precepts and instruction are useful so far as they go, but, without the discipline of real life, they remain of the nature of theory only.

  5. George Farquhar:

    We love the precepts for the teacher's sake.
