Examples of vanish in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    It's true that Love and Fragrance cannot be concealed, and yet the public display of affection (PDA) in social media seems so superficial and artificial, e.g., when husband and wife congratulate each other on FB for their wedding anniversary or parents wish happy birthday on Internet to their children who live in the same house. The dichotomy is that the magic of sensitive and innermost personal affections begins to vanish, as they get displayed explicitly and publicly in social media.

  2. Ryan Reynolds:

    I was partying and just trying to make myself vanish in some way.

  3. AiR:

    Karma and rebirth have a connection we must know. Our actions will be redeemed even after the end of the show. Our Karmas vanish when our bodies dies. We will be reborn as the body who cries.

  4. Erik Pevernagie:

    A doorway is an ambiguous phenomenon, a liminal spot in a person’s life. A door can be a choice, a possibility, a protection or an aperture to new-fangled values. It can mean a barrier, a prison or a gate to freedom. It can, however, vanish in the mist of unawareness by lack of social concern. At that moment, our freedom has become our jail and we feel locked up in our own liberty. Any exit has waned: the doorway has been absorbed in the stupor of our infatuation. ( “In the doorway” )

  5. Dag Hammarskjold:

    You are the lens in the beam. You can only receive, give, and possess the light as the lens does. If you seek yourself, you rob the lens of its transparency. You will know life and be acknowledged by it according to your degree of transparency, your capacity, that is, to vanish as an end, and remain purely as a means.
