Examples of preferring in a Sentence

  1. John Adams:

    If a majority are capable of preferring their own private interest, or that of their families, counties, and party, to that of the nation collectively, some provision must be made in the constitution, in favor of justice, to compel all to respect the common right, the public good, the universal law, in preference to all private and partial considerations... And that the desires of the majority of the people are often for injustice and inhumanity against the minority, is demonstrated by every page of history... To remedy the dangers attendant upon the arbitrary use of power, checks, however multiplied, will scarcely avail without an explicit admission some limitation of the right of the majority to exercise sovereign authority over the individual citizen... In popular governments [democracies], minorities [individuals] constantly run much greater risk of suffering from arbitrary power than in absolute monarchies...

    More cruise lines are eliminating Istanbul as a port of disembarkation and reverting to Athens, Greece, as a result we are seeing a notable drop in pre - and post - cruise bookings for Istanbul. Additionally, we have seen that independent travelers are now preferring to err on the side of caution when it comes to Turkey. Is it safe to travel to Europe now ? For cautious travelers, canceling a trip to Turkey may provide temporary peace of mind. I have had a number of guests contact us to cancel their Istanbul segments opting instead for other European cities including Athens, Barcelona and Rome, says Mina Agnos. But until more is known about Tuesday incident, some travelers may just want to stay the course.

  5. Nic Newman:
