How to use downcast in a sentence?

  1. Vanity Fair correspondent Katie Nicholl:

    This has been a very hard few days for Kate, but she turned up and was committed to her work and duty last week, people did notice that she appeared downcast and subdued. Behind closed doors, she has been saddened, disappointed and hurt.

  2. Anne Frank:

    I have often been downcast, but never in despair I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Every exit is an entry to somewhere else. The end of anything is the beginning of another thing; Moreover, every finish line is the beginning of a new race. As I see it, every issue of life is a part of a continuous process. And if this is the case, it simply means that even your own seemed failure, disappointment or setback is not the end of your life. It also implies that experiencing any of the above instances should not weigh you down. Rather, you are expected to forge ahead of them regardless of how downcast or frustrated you may think you are presently. -Emeasoba George
