How to use shunning in a sentence?

  1. Richard von Weizscker:

    There were many ways of not burdening one's conscience, of shunning responsibility, looking away, keeping mum. When the unspeakable truth of the Holocaust then became known at the end of the war, all too many of us claimed that they had not known anything about it or even suspected anything.

  2. Ahmed Korayem:

    I’d like to believe that our very essence is that of love. At times it’s hard to believe when our experiences remind us of the cold, callous, selfish and liars out there who’ve crossed our paths and hurt us. These hurts have led us to protect our selves by hiding out and shunning our light, our love and our essence from the rest of the world. In the name of self-preservation we, in turn, have become cold, callous, selfish and liars, therefore passing down the cycle of pain to the next generation, forcing them to do the same to protect themselves. The cycle breaks once a single person makes the decision to be vulnerable, to be frail to be their essence, knowing that it could very well lead to a world of pain. In the end, it is worth it to one day have the world full of people who are unafraid of their light and are willing to love unconditionally without fear or consequence. This is the world I would like to live in. This is the world we owe to the future generations

  3. Sir W Raleigh, to his Son:

    There is nothing more becoming a wise man than to make choice of friends, for by them thou shalt be judged what thou art. Let them therefore be wise and virtuous, and none of those that follow thee for gain; but make election rather of thy betters than thy inferiors; shunning always such as are poor and needy, for if thou givest twenty gifts and refuse to do the like but once, all that thou hast done will be lost, and such men will become thy mortal enemies.

  4. Andrew Carnegie:

    This, then, is held to be the duty of the man of wealth: First, to set an example of modest, unostentatious living, shunning display or extravagance; to provide moderately for the legitimate wants of those dependent upon him; and, after doing so, to consider all surplus revenues which come to him simply as trust funds, which he is called upon to administer, and strictly bound as a matter of duty to administer in the manner which, in his judgment, is best calculated to produce the most beneficial results for the community --the man of wealth thus becoming the mere trustee and agent for his poorer brethren, bringing to their service his superior wisdom, experience and ability to administer, doing for them better than they would or could do for themselves.
