How to use fuss in a sentence?

  1. Bruce Lee:

    If people say Jeet Kune Do is different from "this" or from "that," then let the name of Jeet Kune Do be wiped out, for that is what it is, just a name. Please don't fuss over it.

  2. Angela Estes:

    In my house, it was 'Fussing gets you nothing,' so if [my kids] started to fuss about something, I would say, 'What does fussing get you?' And they would say, 'Nothing,' and then they would stop because it triggered them to say, 'Oh, yeah, I'm supposed to do X.'.

  3. Diego Posada:

    MORENA has been very quiet, and actually I'm going to vote for AMLO, but I don't like that he's been quiet and wants to put our rights to a plebiscite, like what's the big fuss?.

  4. Heidi Thomas:

    I was beginning to think though...that whole keeping-your-silence is a form of acceptance. It's not supporting the women who are coming forward. It's not helping ... and if enough people make enough of a fuss, maybe we can get a culture that starts to listen.

  5. Natalia Rutkowski:

    There was a lot of fuss. I was agitated and there were a lot of people starting to stare, i did n’t understand why were treated like that. It was so ridiculous. It was like saying a dog is a cat.
