Examples of Fiery in a Sentence

  1. Primo Levi:

    For me chemistry represented an indefinite cloud of future potentialities which enveloped my life to come in black volutes torn by fiery flashes, like those which had hidden Mount Sinai. Like Moses, from that cloud I expected my law, the principle of order in me, around me, and in the world. I would watch the buds swell in spring, the mica glint in the granite, my own hands, and I would say to myself: I will understand this, too, I will understand everything.

  2. Ian Storey:

    Fiery Cross is sensitive because it is presumed to be the future hub of Chinese military operations in the South China Sea, given its already extensive infrastructure, including its large and deep port and 3000-metre runway, the timing is interesting, too. It is a show of U.S. determination ahead of President Obama's trip to Vietnam later this month.

  3. Wang Yi:

    I think China's SSMs - surface-to-surface missiles, surface-to-air missiles on Woody Island ... Its new radars on Cuarteron Reef ... The 10,000-foot runway on Subi Reef ... and on Fiery Cross Reef and other places; these are actions that are changing in my opinion the operational landscape in the South China Sea.

  4. John Koenig:

    While you're in it, life seems epic. Fiery, tenuous, and unpredictable. But once you have some distance from it, everything seems to shrink, until it's almost out of focus. So you begin scanning your life looking for something interesting or beautiful. But all you see is ordinary people assembled in their tiny classrooms and workspaces, each of us moving around in little steps, like tokens on a game board.

  5. Melanie Hexen:

    It is a fiery whirlwind that soars across the sky. Let it engulf Brock Allen Turner. (Dan A. Turner) (Judge Aaron Persky).
