How to use banish in a sentence?

  1. Michel de Montaigne:

  3. Andrew Schneider:

    Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that's been our unifying cry, More light. Sunlight. Torchlight. Candlight. Neon, incandescent lights that banish the darkness from our caves to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators. Big floods for the night games at Soldier's field. Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we're supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles. Light is metaphor. Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light.

  4. David Sarnoff:

    We cannot banish dangers, but we can banish fears. We must not demean life by standing in awe of death.

  5. Agnes Repplier:
