Examples of trembling in a Sentence

  1. Jeremy Collins:

    He was standing there and I came and stood right next to him, and for some reason turned.

And he began trembling and shaking and said 'Oh God, no' and turned around. I have no doubt it was him.

    Christ's boundless grace confronts our deep necessities. Christ's promised presence confronts our sad and gloomy loneliness.

  4. Giacomo Puccini:

    How the stars shone. How sweet the earth smelled. The orchard gate creaked, and a footstep pressed on the sand. And she entered, fragrant as a flower, and fell into my arms.

My last hour has flown, and I die, hopeless, and never have I loved life more.”

  5. Mehmet Murat ildan:
