Examples of invisible in a Sentence

  1. John Jay Chapman:

    The reason for the slow progress of the world seems to lie in a single fact. Every man is born under the yoke, and grows up beneath the oppressions of his age. He can only get a vision of the unselfish forces in the world by appealing to them, and every appeal is a call to arms. If he fights he must fight, not one man, but a conspiracy. He is always at war with a civilization. On his side is proverbial philosophy, a galaxy of invisible saints and sages, and the half-developed consciousness and professions of everybody. Against him is the world, and every selfish passion in his own heart.

  2. Anuj Somany:

    Invisible Almighty puts the biggest boulder of responsibility only on the shoulder of an intellectually strong person to do something worthwhile for the society.

  3. Giuseppe Mazzini:

    Music is the harmonious voice of creation an echo of the invisible world.

  4. John Grant:

    It's dangerous and the problem with this is that it's invisible, insidious and deadly, and so what you do is when a shark is in the water, you pull everyone out of the water and you make an assessment of what is going on. That's what has to happen right now, a sharp honest assessment of what is going on.

  5. Jonathan Swift:

    Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.
