Examples of deprived in a Sentence

  1. Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Speech to the graduating class at Harvard (1978):

    We have placed too much hope in political and social reforms, only to find out that we were being deprived of our most precious possession: our spiritual life.

  2. Peter S. Jennison:

    The poor and the affluent are not communicating because they do not have the same words. When we talk of the millions who are culturally deprived, we refer not to those who do not have access to good libraries and bookstores, or to museums and centers for the performing arts, but those deprived of the words with which everything else is built, the words that opens doors. Children without words are licked before they start. The legion of the young wordless in urban and rural slums, eight to ten years old, do not know the meaning of hundreds of words which most middle-class people assume to be familiar to much younger children. Most of them have never seen their parents read a book or a magazine, or heard words used in other than rudimentary ways related to physical needs and functions. Thus is cultural fallout caused, the vicious circle of ignorance and poverty reinforced and perpetuated. Children deprived of words become school dropouts; dropouts deprived of hope behave delinquently. Amateur censors blame delinquency on reading immoral books and magazines, when in fact, the inability to read anything is the basic trouble.

  3. Iuliu Winkler:

    In the Democratic Republic of Congo, this has meant even fewer legal jobs, a surge in smuggling, no taxes paid, thousands of people deprived of their livelihood.

  4. Yasmin Haque:

    The child is deprived of the loving care of their parents, of growing up in a family environment, the psychosocial impact on a child can be long lasting, can be lifelong.

  5. Baby Arife:

    You can't pray. You can't keep more than one Koran at home. You can't teach Islam to your children. You can't fast and you can't go to Hajj. When you're deprived of your whole identity, what's the point?
