How to use flighty in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    There is a commonality between Beauty, Fame and Power. They all are fickle, and often described as faithless, flighty and frivolous. They are warm and gentle, when they enable you to soar high. They are cold and brutal, when they drop you from the greatest heights without any warning. They often trip you up when you are least expecting it. Fools get mesmerized by their magic, while Wise manage them smartly by keeping their feet firmly on the ground. Be Wise, and never get swayed by the hypnotic charms of Beauty, Fame and Power.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Beauty, Fame and Power have their common denominator - they all are fickle. They can also be described as faithless, flighty and frivolous.

Fools are hypnotized by them, while Wise manage them smartly keeping their feet firmly on the ground. Be Wise, and do not get carried away with Beauty, Fame and Power. Good luck!

  3. The Dhammapada:

    It is good to tame the mind, which is difficult to hold in, and flighty, rushing wheresoever it listeth: a tamed mind brings blessings.
