Examples of waken in a Sentence

  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    You should be thankful to God (almighty) always. If not for any other reason at least he wakes you up from sleep everyday. Oh! yes, you've never waken up from sleep by your own self and strenght. In fact, if God (almighty) decides not to wake you up from sleep, there is nothing you can do about it. I mean, you will immediately drop dead. For, you can't wake up from sleep by your own self and strenght, even the breath of life itself comes from him (God) alone and he can decide to withdraw it from you any time he feels like (unannounced), mark you. So come on, be thankful to God and remain thankful to him (come what may). ~Emeasoba George

  3. Batman:

    Gotham has fallen silent. The night is no longer broken by the sounds of crime. Children are no longer waken by the sudden crack of a gunshot. There are no more cries in the darkness. No tires screech as wailing sirens chase desperate men and women through narrow streets. In a way it is a Gotham I've always dreamed of. But this is no dream. This is a perversion. This is a nightmare. It is the silence of fear. A silence only broken by the sound of marching feet. A sound that echoes around the world. Marching feet. The rhyme of dictators. Our world is ruled by iron fist of the man of steel.

  4. Tryon Edwards:

    To waken interest and kindle enthusiasm is the sure way to teach easily and successfully.
