How to use arouse in a sentence?

  1. Agnes Repplier:

    A villain must be a thing of power, handled with delicacy and grace. He must be wicked enough to excite our aversion, strong enough to arouse our fear, human enough to awaken some transient gleam of sympathy. We must triumph in his downfall, yet not barbarously nor with contempt, and the close of his career must be in harmony with all its previous development.

  2. Leon Trotsky:

    If the Revolution has the right to destroy bridges and art monuments whenever necessary, it will stop still less from laying its hand on any tendency in art which, no matter how great its achievement in form, threatens to disintegrate the revolutionary environment or to arouse the internal forces of the Revolution, that is, the proletariat, the peasantry and the intelligentsia, to a hostile opposition to one another. Our standard is, clearly, political, imperative and intolerant.

  3. Wilfredo Santos:

    We bought four (as sculptures) because of the curiosity they arouse.

  4. Mwanandeke Kindembo:

    Love is simply a bundle of feelings that we express, whether to attract, arouse or communicate our thoughts to someone else.

  5. Marcus Aurelius:

    Nothing is burdensome if taken lightly, and how nothing need arouse one’s irritation so long as one doesn’t make it bigger than it is by getting irritated.
