Examples of prophets in a Sentence

  1. Richard Livingstone:

    There is no virtue in being uncritical nor is it a habit to which the young are given. But criticism is only the burying beetle that gets rid of what is dead, and, since the world lives by creative and constructive forces, and not by negation and destruction, it is better to grow up in the company of prophets than of critics.

  2. Dejan Stojanovic:

    We don’t know anything about silent sages, buried knowledge, the eye of the mute poet, serene seers, yet how many talkative destroyers, prophets and ideologues, teachers and beautifiers there are on the other side.

  3. Med Jones:

    I do not agree with the prophets of doom who are predicting the socioeconomic collapse of the United States. Make no mistake, US will recover. The road to recovery is rocky with potential setbacks, and we have to pay for our mistakes like everyone else.

  4. House Speaker John Boehner:

    The Bible says beware of false prophets. And there are people out there, you know, spreading noise about how much can get done. I mean this whole notion that we're going to shut down the government to get rid of Obamacare in 2013 -- this plan never had a chance.

  5. Socrates, In "Apology," sct. 21, by Plato.:

    I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled [poets] to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean.
