How to use break loose in a sentence?

  1. André Maurois:

    The need to express oneself in writing springs from a mal-adjustment to life, or from an inner conflict which the adolescent (or the grown man) cannot resolve in action. Those to whom action comes as easily as breathing rarely feel the need to break loose from the real, to rise above, and describe it... I do not mean that it is enough to be maladjusted to become a great writer, but writing is, for some, a method of resolving a conflict, provided they have the necessary talent.

  2. Chet Nagle:

  5. Chet Nagle:

And the fact that you have a test aircraft crash, or an aerostat break loose, doesn't invalidate the system.
