How to use vehement in a sentence?

  1. John Burroughs:

    The very idea of a bird is a symbol and a suggestion to the poet. A bird seems to be at the top of the scale, so vehement and intense his life. . . . The beautiful vagabonds, endowed with every grace, masters of all climes, and knowing no bounds -- how many human aspirations are realised in their free, holiday-lives -- and how many suggestions to the poet in their flight and song

  2. Adolf Hitler:

    This means that a people cannot be made “national” according to the signification attached to that word by our bourgeois class today - that is to say, nationalism with many reservations- but national in the vehement and extreme sense.

  3. Edmund Burke:

    In doing good, we are generally cold, and languid, and sluggish; and of all things afraid of being too much in the right. But the works of malice and injustice are quite in another style. They are finished with a bold, masterly hand; touched as they are with the spirit of those vehement passions that call forth all our energies, whenever we oppress and persecute.

  4. John Burroughs, Birds and Poets, 1887:

    The very idea of a bird is a symbol and a suggestion to the poet. A bird seems to be at the top of the scale, so vehement and intense his life. . . . The beautiful vagabonds, endowed with every grace, masters of all climes, and knowing no bounds -- how many human aspirations are realised in their free, holiday-lives -- and how many suggestions to the poet in their flight and song!

  5. Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2:

    Even the mind of the wise man who labours for perfection is carried away by the vehement insistence of the senses, O son of Kunti. (2:60)
