Examples of passant in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Il n'y a rien à romancer propos de l'obscurité froide et amère de la nuit. Ce qui nous maintient en passant par est l'espoir que, bientôt, la nuit va se terminer, et le premier rayon lumineux du soleil pénétrer l'obscurité pour éclairer notre monde. peu importe combien de temps et lonesome cette nuit pourrait être, la réalité est qu'il finira finalement. Il est l'espoir qui nous maintient en passant par ces taches sombres misérables. Voilà pourquoi il est important de ne jamais perdre espoir. Dum vita est, spes est! Tant qu'il ya la vie, il ya de l'espoir!
