Examples of martyrs in a Sentence

  1. Author Unknown:

    A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security.

  2. Ryan Pack:

    The Police: Society gives far too much credit and funding to these people. They're not heroes, they're not martyrs and they're not good people, none of them. These people unlawfully arrested me for not having my drivers licence during the covid 19 pandemic, when all the Secretary Of States across America were closed. They should have considered this a special circumstance but they didn't. One of the officers was searching my car and you could her him on cell phone record saying this dude stinks behind my back. They pulled me over for high head beams and impeding traffic. I was doing 30 in a 55 because it was 10:30p.m. and dark outside and I was just exercising caution. I should not be punished for exercising caution, if more people exercised caution there would be a lot less traffic fatalities and a lot less traffic accidents. If people exercised the appropriate amount of caution in all aspects of their lives the worId would be a much safer and better place. I was in a small city late at night and there wasn't much traffic, I wasn't doing anything dangerous to anyone and yet threatened to give me a ticket for impeding traffic. The only ticket the officer could have fairly given me was for failure to turn off my high head beams and yet even after pulling me over and threatening me with tickets for some reason he decided to change his mind and not ticket me at all, not even for the high head beams. I ask myself, why did he pull me over for a crime, threaten to give me tickets and then change his mind. Was it the fact that I called my mother to the traffic stop and he had to explain himself to her, was it the fact that I stood up for myself and argued with him about the charges, was it the fact that the officer and his partner had to explain their misconduct against me I don't know. But what I do know is by him pulling me over for a crime, by him threatening me with tickets and then failure to ticket me for the appropriate crime is an act of corruption no matter how you look at it. This is just one incidence of the Police's misconduct against me, there's other incidences. On another occasion they called me a liar behind my back and maliciously attacked me, deliberately trying to make me look bad for some reason and I was lucky enough to overhear them doing it. These people took my property without my permission and under unjust circumstances and everytime I come into contact with these people they never do there job fairly, for some reason they always tend to make things worse instead of better. These people will shake your hand, they will smile at you, they will pretend to be fair, they will pretend to be your friend, they will tell you to have a nice day and then they will go behind your back and maliciously attack you, slander you, try to turn you into a monster, unlawfully arrest you, obstruct justice, abuse their power, murder you and say it was self defense, they'll say they feared for their lives, but what really happened was they maliciously murdered you. They will convict you of crimes you didn't commit, they will put innocent people on death row and execute them and they don't even give a shit, they'll put you in prison and let people rape you and they say it never happened, they'll say they didn't see it, they'll say the cameras were down,they'll say they wouldn't of let it happen, they'll call you a liar, they'll say your just trying to cause trouble, they'll try to cover all these things up, but the truth is all of these things actually happened and the truth is, is that all of these cops, judges, lawyers, politicians, probation officers, parole officers, correction officers, military officials, media officials, immigration officers, FBI, the entire government and most of its citizens are all corrupt murderers, criminals, and they get away with it because they got the whole system wired in their favor. They cover for each other's misconduct and that's why these murderers running our government keep getting away with all the evil things they do.

  3. King Abdullah:

    The brave pilot gave his life defending his faith, country and nation and joined other Jordanian martyrs who gave their lives for Jordan.

  4. President Tayyip Erdogan:

    Alongside our 56 martyrs, the FSA army had hundreds of martyrs.

  5. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif:

    I am here to renew a pledge that we are keeping count of every drop of blood of our martyrs. This account is being settled, and we will not rest till it is paid.
