How to use dampen in a sentence?

  1. Christian Schulz:

    But it's a reminder that Germany's growth at the moment is driven by consumption and not by the manufacturing backbone of the economy which at least at the beginning of year should somewhat dampen the growth outlook.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Facing life's adversities head-on, and surviving through a truly traumatic experience often makes one tougher, smarter and stronger than ever before. Only you know it inside that you're not, and you'll never be, the same person as you were before encountering and overcoming that challenging phase of your life. You did not let that experience knock you down, dampen your spirit, and drain your resolve. Instead you found a way to rise from the ashes to face the world, now empowered and enabled with exceptional resilience. It's so true that what doesn't kill you surely makes you stronger. Kudos to you, Survivor. In my eyes, you will always be the Hero. Cheers my friend!
