A tempest is a storm of extreme violence, always attended with some precipitation, as of rain, from the atmosphere.

How to use agitation in a sentence?

  1. Jacqueline van Maarsen:

    I was 11 when the Germans invaded Holland. I remember seeing the planes flying overhead and sensing the great agitation of my parents. I thought we might get bombed or we might not get enough food, but the idea that we faced another threat because we were Jewish didn’t even enter my head. My mother was a Parisian Catholic, and although my father had registered us as Jewish in Amsterdam in 1938 — he wanted us to be part of the Jewish community, like the rest of his Dutch family — my older sister and I weren’t really brought up as Jewish.

  2. George Gordon Byron:

    It is odd but agitation or contest of any kind gives a rebound to my spirits and sets me up for a time.

  3. Jawaharlal Nehru:

    The purely agitation attitude is not good enough for a detailed consideration of a subject.

  4. Eugene V. Debs:

    If it had not been for the discontent of a few fellows who had not been satisfied with their conditions, you would still be living in caves. Intelligent discontent is the mainspring of civilization. Progress is born of agitation. It is agitation or stagnation.

  5. Michel de Montaigne:

    So it is with minds. Unless you keep them busy with some definite subject that will bridle and control them, they throw themselves in disorder hither and yon in the vague field of imagination. ..And there is no mad or idle fancy that they do no bring forth in the agitation.
