How to use punishes in a sentence?

  1. Pope Francis:

  2. John Steinbeck:

    The discipline of the written word punishes both stupidity and dishonesty.

  3. Hermes:

    From one Soul of the Universe are all Souls derived. . .Of these Souls there are many changes, some into a more fortunate estate, and some quite contrary. . .Not all human souls but only the pious ones are divine. Once separated from the body, and after the struggle to acquire piety, which consists in knowing God and injuring none, such a soul becomes all intelligence. The impious soul, however, punishes itself by seeking a human body to enter into, for no other body can receive a human soul it cannot enter the body of an animal devoid of reason. Divine law preserves the human soul from such infamy. . .The soul passeth from form to form and the mansions of her pilgrimage are manifold. Thou puttest off thy bodies as raiment and as vesture dost thou fold them up. Thou art from old, O Soul of Man yea, thou art from everlasting.

  4. Cabot Phillips:

    The university punishes students based on how controversial or offensive their words are. Well, by nature, the most controversial ideas will be the ones that are least present, and in college campuses it’s overwhelmingly conservative ideas that are not present, so it’s going to be conservative students that are facing the brunt of this, any student, it doesn’t matter political affiliation, no student should have to fear bringing up ideas that may make people a little uncomfortable.

  5. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Five Touches * The wrong way leads to a wrong destination * Tricks stay tricks; never become a reality * No law becomes effective, if the people stay hunger, even God's law becomes invalid, for that. * Fake one punishes to itself, losing all beneficial factors only for its emulation. * Follow the rules, to stay away from; otherwise, the rules follow you.
