How to use feeble in a sentence?

  1. Albert Einstein:

    My religion consists of a humble admiration of the unlimitable superior who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.

  2. Magha:

    A man of feeble character resembles a reed that bends with every gust of wind.

  3. Henry C. Blinn:

    Begin today No matter how feeble the light, let it shine as best it may. The world may need just that quality of light which you have.

  4. Hannah More:

    One kernel is felt in a hogshead; one drop of water helps to swell the ocean; a spark of fire helps to give light to the world. None are too small, too feeble, too poor to be of service. Think of this and act.

  5. Henri-Frédéric Amiel:

    Liberty, equality - bad principles! The only true principle for humanity is justice; and justice to the feeble is protection and kindness.
