How to use superior in a sentence?

  1. Émile Durkheim:

    Man's characteristic privilege is that the bond he accepts is not physical but moral; that is, social. He is governed not by a material environment brutally imposed on him, but by a conscience superior to his own, the superiority of which he feels. Because the greater, better part of his existence transcends the body, he escapes the body's yoke, but is subject to that of society.

  2. Archibald MacLeish:

    Once you permit those who are convinced of their own superior rightness to censor and silence and suppress those who hold contrary opinions, just at that moment the citadel has been surrendered. For the American citadel is a man. Not man in general. Not man in the abstract. Not the majority of men. But man. That man. His worth. His uniqueness.

  3. Chris Kilham:

    – because your husband is right. Onions actually offer superior health benefits to some of our favorite superfoods, like pomegranates, green tea and red wine, he added. Manny Alvarez checked in with Chris Kilham, the Medicine Hunter, for a second opinion. Onions are especially high in beneficial antioxidants including the super-antioxidant, quercetin, which is useful for the heart, for the immune system( and) for many, many things in the body, i would make the claim that onions are among the healthiest of all foods Manny Alvarez could possibly eat, and that if Manny Alvarez eat an onion every day - and I ’m not talking raw, Manny Alvarez can cook it, prepare it any way Manny Alvarez like - Manny Alvarez will do far more for Manny Alvarez health than eating lots of the super fruits that are available.

  4. Bruce Barton:

    Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    creación y el cultivo de la belleza no sucede sin una tremenda resistencia. la verdadera belleza es a menudo surgió a partir del caos y la turbulencia. mirar las erupciones de volcanes y temblores de tierra que dan a luz a las hermosas montañas y lagos. pensar en esas estalactitas increíblemente atractivos formados sólo después continua erosión por el agua que gotea lentamente. algo muy superior, magnífico, mejor y más bella siempre aparece de otra manera ordinaria - sólo después de soportar el caos colosal, furia aterradora, traumatizar turbulencia y desorden perturbador dentro del status quo estancada. esa es la realidad de la vida! así, aceptar y soportar los cambios, no importa que tan caótica, tormentoso e irracional que pueda parecer a usted hoy. usted es elegido por los supremos poderes para crear y cultivar la belleza, algo que nunca existió antes - sólo a través de su resistencia excepcional. y estoy seguro de que va, mi amigo, pasar esta prueba con nota. lo has hecho antes, y que va a hacer de nuevo. seguir, y romper una pierna!
