How to use essence in a sentence?

  1. James Anthony Froude:

    The essence of greatness is neglect of the self.

  2. Bongeka Macala:

    Once people figure out your way of thinking you have lost your true essence. Always let people wonder - you will always be interesting.

  3. Gordon B. Hinckley, Standing for Something:

    Love is the very essence of life.

  4. Mikhail Aleksandrovich Bakunin:

    The instinct to command others, in its primitive essence, is a carnivorous, altogether bestial and savage instinct. Under the influence of the mental development of man, it takes on a somewhat more ideal form and becomes somewhat ennobled, presenting itself as the instrument of reason and the devoted servant of that abstraction, or political fiction, which is called the public good. But in its essence it remains just as baneful, and it becomes even more so when, with the application of science, it extends its scope and intensifies the power of its action. If there is a devil in history, it is this power principle.

  5. Vice President Biden:

    For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, youve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what shes talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not its been made worse or better over time, but nobody fails to understand that this is like jumping into a cauldron.
