Examples of flashes in a Sentence

  1. Michael Walter:

    We have unconfirmed reports of power flashes and possible wind damage in Clear Lake near Ellington Field where the Johnson Space Center is, power flashes occurred when high winds hit a transformer, which usually indicate a tornado coming through that area.

  2. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam that flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages. Yet he dismisses without notice his own thought, because it is his. In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts they come back to us with a sort of alienated majesty.

  3. William Shakespeare:

    Alas, poor Yorick I knew him, Horatio a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath borne me on his back a thousand times and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is my gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now your gambols, your songs your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar Not one now, to mock your own grinning Quite chap-fallen Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must come.

  4. 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.

  5. Edwin P. Whipple:

    An epigram often flashes light into regions where reason shines but dimly.
