How to use addled in a sentence?

  1. George Eliot:

    Comprehensive talkers are apt to be tiresome when we are not athirst for information; but, to be quite fair, we must admit that superior reticence is a good deal due to lack of matter. Speech is often barren, but silence also does not necessarily brood over a full nest. Your still fowl, blinking at you without remark, may all the while be sitting on one addled nest-egg; and, when it takes to cackling, will have nothing to announce but that addled delusion.

  2. Jackie Collins:

    A vicious hit, a vengeful enemy, a drug addled Colombian club owner and a sex crazed Italian family... the ever powerful Lucky Santangelo has to deal with them all. i like writing something that's going to make people laugh, but also turn them on at the same time.

  3. Nguyen Quang:

    That was just a cheap trick by those who have no understanding, i don't judge these security officials. I judge their bosses, their minds are just so addled.
