Examples of Devout in a Sentence

  1. Saint Augustine:

    Hence, a devout Christian must avoid astrologers and all impious soothsayers, especially when they tell the truth, for fear of leading his soul into error by consorting with demons and entangling himself with the bonds of such association.

  2. Mary Baker Eddy:

    Audible prayer can never do the works of spiritual understanding, which regenerates; but silent prayer, watchfulness, and devout obedience enable us to follow Jesus example. Long prayers, superstition, and creeds clip the strong pinions of love, and clothe religion in human forms. Whatever materializes worship hinders man's spiritual growth and keeps him from demonstrating his power over error.

  3. William Shakespeare:

    I pray you bear me henceforth from the noise and rumour of the field, where I may think the remnant of my thoughts in peace, and part of this body and my soul with contemplation and devout desires.

  4. Anuj Somany:

    A black crow does not become a white dove by putting on its body the same color dress or paint; Similarly, a self-indulgent wearing any colour of devout outfit and giving a sermon in a soft, seamless and sweet accent to a large number of selfish disciples does not become a spiritual master or saint.

  5. Abraham Bonowitz:

    Jerry was pained by his experience but also proud of how he did it, that sometimes rubbed some people in the movement the wrong way. He was also a very devout religious person. He did what he could to help heal the world in the wake of the damage done during his career.
