Examples of gates in a Sentence

  1. John Dryden:

    The gates of Hell are open night and day Smooth the descent, and easy is the way But, to return, and view the cheerful skies In this, the task and mighty labor lies.

  2. US District Judge Royce Lambeth, ordering CIA Director Robert Gates to testify at the Clair George trial.:

  3. Brys Stephens:

    The gates worked pretty well so far and we've managed to keep water away from the house, but we've got another storm surge coming later on, so we'll see then if it holds.

  4. Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna of Russia:

    If we look deep into the life of every human, we discover that it is full of miracles. You will say, Of terror and death, as well. Yes, that also. But we do not clearly see why the blood of these victims must flow. There, in the heavens, they understand everything and, no doubt, have found calm and the Truer Homeland -- a heavenly Homeland. We on this earth must look to that Heavenly Homeland with understanding and say with resignation, Thy will be done. Completely destroyed now is the Great Russia without fear or reproach, but Holy Russia, the Orthodox Church, the Church against which the gates of hell shall not prevail, exists and exists as never before; and those who believe, who have no doubts, have an inner sun that illuminates the darkness of the thundering storm.

  5. Virgil:

    It is easy to go down into hell night and day, the gates of dark death stand wide, but to climb back again, to retrace one's steps to the upper air - there's the rub, the task.
