How to use damp in a sentence?

  1. Alabama Republican:

    Well, I got in this pocket... damp wet wipes. I am supposed to go ahead at every doorknob, everything else... no touching. They are always telling me do not touch my face. That is really hard, i have certain gestures I have had all my life... now I am sitting there like this.

  2. Joseph Addison:

    Laughter, while it lasts, slackens and unbraces the mind, weakens the faculties and causes a kind of remissness and dissolution in all the powers of the soul; and thus it may be looked on as weakness in the composition of human nature. But if we consider the frequent reliefs we receive from it and how often it breaks the gloom which is apt to depress the mind and damp our spirits, with transient, unexpected gleams of joy, one would take care not to grow too wise for so great a pleasure of life.

  3. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche:

    Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him

  4. Devesh Mamtani:

    The sanctions on Iran have turned out to be a damp squib for the time being with the Trump administration granting exemptions, the exemptions have even surprised Saudi Arabia as oil supplies from Iran are likely to spike in the coming days.

  5. Van Dam:

    This is a rare occurrence that took place because cool, damp air became trapped in the lower levels of the canyon, it was literally stuck underneath a warm layer of air just above. In the meteorological world, this is referred to as an inversion when the temperature actually warms with height (as opposed to it cooling with a rise in altitude).
