Examples of rites in a Sentence

  1. John Alejandro King, a.k.a. The Covert Comic, www.covertcomic.com:

  2. Natalie Wood:

    We gave Evan the last rites and then we turned off her life support, she was declared brain dead…The hospital kept giving me a sliver of hope. I knew it was wrong, but I wanted it to be true. So I hung on for a week. It’s rough. I feel like I’ve been very, very beaten. I hurt from head to toe with the pain of losing my daughter.

  3. Lao-Tzu:

    Arms are instruments of ill omen. . . . When one is compelled to use them, it is best to do so without relish. There is no glory in victory, and to glorify it despite this is to exult in the killing of men. . . . When great numbers of people are killed, one should weep over them with sorrow. When victorious in war, one should observe mourning rites.
