Examples of Mystic in a Sentence

  1. Abraham Lincoln:

    We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.

  2. Søren Kierkegaard:

    Just as in earthly life lovers long for the moment when they are able to breathe forth their love for each other, to let their souls blend in a soft whisper, so the mystic longs for the moment when in prayer he can, as it were, creep into God.

  4. Abraham Lincoln:

    We are not enemies but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic cords of memory shall swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of nature.
