Examples of torches in a Sentence

  1. Margaret Mead:

    The prophet who fails to present a bearable alternative and yet preaches doom is part of the trap that he postulates. Not only does he picture us caught in a tremendous man-made or God-made trap from which there is no escape, but we must also listen to him day in, day out, describe how the trap is inexorably closing. To such prophecies the human race, as presently bred and educated and situated, is incapable of listening. So some dance and some immolate themselves as human torches; some take drugs and some artists spill their creativity in sets of randomly placed dots on a white ground.

  2. Joe Biden:

    We saw Klansmen and white supremacists and neo-Nazis come out in the open, their crazed faces illuminated by torches, veins bulging, and bearing the fangs of racism, chanting the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the 30s.

  3. Prime Minister Hun Sen:

    We can make resin torches for environmental extremists to use and cut off electricity from their homes.

  4. Blake Flayton:

    An American Jew is only used to perceiving anti-Semitism as Nazis in Charlottesville carrying tiki torches, or a swastika being spray-painted onto a synagogue wall, or the Christian right saying that Jews killed Jesus Christ. We're not very attuned to and good at recognizing anti-Semitism when it doesn't come from that extreme side of the political spectrum, but we are going to have to get used to it, because that's what's coming here. It's already here.

  5. Omir Bekali:

    They put me in a tiger chair, they hung us up and beat us on the thigh, on the hips with wooden torches, with iron whips.
