How to use blast in a sentence?

  1. Basir Jan:

    Before the blast we were so happy, all our family, relatives and friends were at the hall and we were enjoying the wedding, when the blast happened, I saw dead bodies of my relatives and friends. Eight of my close friends were killed in the blast. It was a scene I will always remember.

  2. Feltham:

    He that would build lastingly must lay his foundation low. The proud man, like the early shoots of a new-felled coppice, thrusts out full of sap, green in leaves, and fresh in colour, but bruises and breaks with every wind, is nipped with every little cold, and, being top-heavy, is wholly unfit for use. Whereas the humble man retains it in the root, can abide the winter?s killing blast, the ruffling concussions of the wind, and can endure far more than that which appears so flourishing.

  3. Joost Op t Eynde:

    The difference a simple crest or a wider brim can make in blast protection, shows just how important this line of research could be, with all of the modern materials and manufacturing capabilities we possess today, we should be able to make improvements in helmet design that protectfrom blast waves better than helmets today or 100 years ago.

  4. Inspector Mewa Lal Gaur:

    When the first blast took place in the gas cylinder many people collected there to watch and see what had happened. Then there was a secondary blast.

  5. George Gordon Byron:

    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,And breathed in the face of the foe as he pass'dAnd the eyes of the sleepers wax'd deadly and chill,And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still
