How to use renunciation in a sentence?

  1. Jean Jacques Rousseau:

    To renounce liberty is to renounce being a man, to surrender the rights of humanity and even its duties. For he who renounces everything no indemnity is possible. Such a renunciation is incompatible with man's nature to remove all liberty from his will is to remove all morality from his acts.

  2. Charles Cooley:

    When one has come to accept a certain course as duty he has a pleasant sense of relief and of lifted responsibility, even if the course involves pain and renunciation. It is like obedience to some external authority; any clear way, though it lead to death, is mentally preferable to the tangle of uncertainty.

  3. Whun Cheon:

    Kim Jong will never spell such words as' renunciation' or' elimination' of nukes, or returning to the Non-Proliferation Treaty as a non-nuclear weapons state.
