Examples of seething in a Sentence

  1. Edward Hoagland:

    True solitude is a din of birdsong, seething leaves, whirling colors, or a clamor of tracks in the snow.

  2. David Pilgrim:

    Funneling anger is risky business. Anger is a powerful fuel, and one could argue that much social change has resulted in no small part because of angry voices. In my half century of living, however, I have seen too many activists become frustrated and worn out—made callous by failed attempts to make change, with their idealistic passion devolving into seething anger, or worse, thick hatred.

  3. Kim Jong Il:

    In the seething period of the effort for building a thriving country last year, we took the resolute measure of removing the factionalists.

  4. Lucas Leonard:

    When [her sons] were forced to stand up against the wall I saw [David Morey] push up against them, he was actually growling, seething. His whole body weight was pushed against them.

  5. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

    I feel that we will continue to have a non-violent movement, and we will continue to find the vast majority of Negroes committed to non-violence, at least as the best tactical approach and from a pragmatic point of view as the best strategy in dealing with the problem of racial injustice. Realism impels me to admit, however, that when there is justice and the pursuit of justice, violence appears, and where there is injustice and frustration, the potentialities for violence are greater, and I would like to strongly stress the point that the more we can achieve victories through non-violence, the more it will be possible to keep the non-violent discipline at the center of the movement. But the more we find individuals facing conditions of frustration, conditions of disappointment and seething despair as a result of the slow pace of things and the failure to change conditions, the more it will be possible for the apostles of violence to interfere.
