Examples of Majesty in a Sentence

  1. William Shakespeare, "King Richard II", Act 2 scene 1:

    This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

  2. Sorin Cerin:

    We should all have the freedom to die with majesty in an unworthy life which was subjected to sin and vanity.

  3. Dr. Jose P. Rizal:

    He who knows the surface of the earth and the topography of a country only through the examination of maps..is like a man who learns the opera of Meyerbeer or Rossini by reading only reviews in the newspapers. The brush of landscape artists Lorrain, Ruysdael, or Calame can reproduce on canvas the sun's ray, the coolness of the heavens, the green of the fields, the majesty of the mountains...but what can never be stolen from Nature is that vivid impression that she alone can and knows how to impart--the music of the birds, the movement of the trees, the aroma peculiar to the place--the inexplicable something the traveller feels that cannot be defined and which seems to awaken in him distant memories of happy days, sorrows and joys gone by, never to return!

  4. Attorney Jawaid Iqbal Jafree:

    Her Majesty the Queen will rise in the highest public interest … with facilitating honest disposal and transferring the possession of the Koh-i-Noor diamond which was illegally taken.

  5. Boyd Tunnock:

    When you get to my age, very few things surprise you but this certainly did and I am deeply honored and grateful to Her Majesty the queen.
