How to use yoke in a sentence?

  1. President Obama:

  2. Patro Qhamakoane:

  4. 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.

  5. Fahrettin Altun:
