How to use bustle in a sentence?

  1. Ugur Ipek:

  2. Charles Baudelaire:

    For the perfect idler, for the passionate observer it becomes an immense source of enjoyment to establish his dwelling in the throng, in the ebb and flow, the bustle, the fleeting and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel at home anywhere; to see the world, to be at the very center of the world, and yet to be unseen of the world, such are some of the minor pleasures of those independent, intense and impartial spirits, who do not lend themselves easily to linguistic definitions. The observer is a prince enjoying his incognito wherever he goes.

  3. Anna Hakkarainen:

  5. Gregory Agapé:

    We are always upset by the noises, bangs, all the bustle around so nights are very complicated, very short.
