How to use propriety in a sentence?

  1. Queen Victoria:

    The Queen is most anxious to enlist everyone who can speak or write to join in checking this mad, wicked folly of Woman's Rights with all its attendant horrors on which her poor, feeble sex is bent, forgetting every sense of womanly feeling and propriety.

  2. Cervantes:

    Poesy is a beauteous damsel, chaste, honourable, discreet, witty, retired, and who keeps herself within the limits of propriety. She is a friend of solitude; fountains entertain her, meadows console her, woods free her from ennui, flowers delight her; in short, she gives pleasure and instruction to all with whom she communicates.

  3. Lawana Blackwell:

    Propriety was a rigid master, but one that must be obeyed if one wanted to keep a sterling reputation.

  4. Rick Hess:

    If I'm a conservative who is uncomfortable about race-based preferences, the argument for race-based preferences that Harvard University is making -- that Harvard University has so much integrity and Harvard University is so careful that we can trust them to dance in gray areas of constitutional propriety because they exercise great discretion -- takes a huge blow.

  5. Frederick Douglass:

    For it is not light that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be proclaimed and denounced.
