How to use omen in a sentence?

  1. George Santayana:

    Our character...is an omen of our destiny, and the more integrity we have and keep, the simpler and nobler that destiny is likely to be.

  2. Alexis karpouzos:

    Time is the architect of fate, fleeting omen, pure phantom in enchanting light of absence, and our life the play of love and death, only love will never die, because In love no longer ‘thou’ and ‘I’ exist, only the blossom of sacred unity.

  3. Lao-Tzu:

    Arms are instruments of ill omen. . . . When one is compelled to use them, it is best to do so without relish. There is no glory in victory, and to glorify it despite this is to exult in the killing of men. . . . When great numbers of people are killed, one should weep over them with sorrow. When victorious in war, one should observe mourning rites.

  4. Col Robert Lee Maginnis:

    Putin's decision to limit access to Facebook is a terrible omen for Russian freedom, it is the proverbial camel's nose under the tent.Expect much worse denial of freedom to follow.This is especially true as evidenced by the Kremlin's recent decision to clamp down on anti-war protesters.
