How to use puritanism in a sentence?

  1. Marcel Ophuls:

    Puritanism...helps us enjoy our misery while we are inflicting it on others.

  2. H. L. Mencken:

    Puritanism is the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.

  3. Bertrand Russell:

    The practical objection to Puritanism, as to every form of fanaticism, is that it singles out certain evils as so much worse than others that they must be suppressed at all costs. The fanatic fails to recognise that the suppression of a real evil, if carried out too drastically, produces other evils which are even greater.

  4. Robertson Davies, The Diary of Samuel Marchbanks, 1947:

    I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind... At the back of the Daylight Saving scheme, I detect the bony, blue-fingered hand of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get them up earlier, to make them healthy, wealthy, and wise in spite of themselves.

  5. H.L. Mencken:

    Puritanism The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.
