How to use bustle in a sentence?

  1. Anna Hakkarainen:

    Lapland is the antithesis to the urban hustle and bustle.

  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. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry:

    Commonly, people believe that defeat is characterized by a general bustle and a feverish rush. Bustle and rush are the signs of victory, not of defeat. Victory is a thing of action. It is a house in the act of being built. Every participant in victory sweats and puffs, carrying the stones for the building of the house. But defeat is a thing of weariness, of incoherence, of boredom. And above all of futility.

  4. Barack Obama:

    Jesus lived a life of peace, love, kindness and forgiveness, during the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, may we all do our best to follow his example.

  5. Ugur Ipek:

    I thought, 'how can we increase the flow when boarding a plane and make their less bustle and less queuing,' with a large, welcoming central point, this would solve that problem, and also people would find it much easier to locate their seats.
