- I must stop, stop to repress a mother's anguish; lest, in bitterness of soul, I imprecate the wrath of heaven on this tiger, who tore my only comfort from me. - "Maria The Wrongs of Woman", Mary Wollstonecraft.
- He ceased to imprecate only when, by repetition, his oaths became too inexpressive to be worth while. - "The Eagle's Heart", Hamlin Garland.
