Usage examples for Habitant

  1. Doubtful the stranger bows his lofty head, When down descend his kindred Seraphim; Borne on their wings he soars from human sight, And Heaven regains the Habitant of Light. – The Poetical Works of Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton, Bart. M.P. by Edward Bulwer Lytton
  2. The Earth, Though, in comparison of Heaven, so small, Nor glistering, may of solid good contain More plenty than the Sun that barren shines, Whose virtue on itself works no effect, But in the fruitful Earth; there first received, His beams, inactive else, their vigour find, Yet not to Earth are those bright luminaries Officious, but to thee, Earth's habitant – The Astronomy of Milton's 'Paradise Lost' by Thomas Orchard
