How to use awaken in a sentence?

  1. H.W. Mann:

    In truth, true love is beyond thoughts and emotions. When we begin to spiritually awaken, we realize separation is an illusion. At the source there is God consciousness. We are individualized units of that reality we call God. We are individualized units of consciousness. We are temporarily in the human condition. But ultimately, we are one. That realization brings about a state of consciousness called love. It is understanding of the oneness of creation. We are all in this together.

  2. Jessamyn West:

    A religious awakening which does not awaken the sleeper to love has roused him in vain.

  3. Albert Einstein:

    It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.

  4. H. L. Mencken:

    That erroneous assumption is to the effect that the aim of public education is to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence, and so make them fit to discharge the duties of citizenship in an enlightened and independent manner. Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all, it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever the pretensions of politicians, pedagogues and other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else.

  5. White House:

    It would also awaken every American to this simple fact: if this scourge has not found you or your family yet, without bold action by everyone, it soon will, you, Mr. President, are the only person who can bring this type of intensity to the emergency, and we believe you have the will to do so and to do so immediately.
