How to use dissipate in a sentence?

  1. Idrissa Nassa:

    Everything depends on the effort by the government after this attack to reassure our international partners and the friends of the country to continue to come here, if the government can limit it to just one attack then I think the climate of fear will dissipate quite quickly and things will go back to normal.

  2. Jeremy Johnson:

    The effects will dissipate over time. A rally in October is probably more meaningful than any rally in July.

  3. Jaime Harrison:

    The glow of this will dissipate. The question is, are you building a record of moving people forward and taking people from poverty to the working middle class? you can't just hang your hat on one good deed.

  4. Ralph W. Sockman:

    Good habits, which bring our lower passions and appetites under automatic control, leave our natures free to explore the larger experiences of life. Too many of us divide and dissipate our energies in debating actions which should be taken for granted.

  5. Roger Quarles Mills:

    Prohibition was introduced as a fraud; it has been nursed as a fraud. It is wrapped in the livery of Heaven, but it comes to serve the devil. It comes to regulate by law our appetites and our daily lives. It comes to tear down liberty and build up fanaticism, hypocrisy, and intolerance. It comes to confiscate by legislative decree the property of many of our fellow citizens. It comes to send spies, detectives, and informers into our homes; to have us arrested and carried before courts and condemned to fines and imprisonments. It comes to dissipate the sunlight of happiness, peace, and prosperity in which we are now living and to fill our land with alienations, estrangements, and bitterness. It comes to bring us evil - only evil - and that continually. Let us rise in our might as one and overwhelm it with such indignation that we shall never hear of it again as long as grass grows and water runs.
