How to use glowing in a sentence?

  1. Ali Mufuruki:

    On the one hand you hear glowing stories of growth and prosperity, shiny new buildings being built, big cars, nice homes, and lots of consumption. But Africa is producing bigger and bigger numbers of poor people, so poor so desperate.

  2. Michael Berry:

    We provided copies of previous reviews which are all glowing, they talk about what a wonderful coach he is. It’s like getting straight A’s and then getting an F. Obviously, there is something more to this.

  3. Jamie Lloyd-Smith:

  4. Addison:

    A just and reasonable modesty does not only recommend eloquence, but sets off every talent which a man can be possessed of. It heightens all the virtues which it accompanies; like the shades of paintings, it raises and rounds every figure, and makes the colours more beautiful, though not so glowing as they would be without it.

  5. Herman Melville, Moby Dick:

    Men may seem detestable as joint stock-companies and nations; knaves, fools, and murderers there may be; men may have mean and meagre faces; but man, in the ideal, is so noble and so sparkling, such a grand and glowing creature, that over any ignominious blemish in him all his fellows should run to throw their costliest robes.
