How to use infrequently in a sentence?

  1. Michael Kugelman:

    It is really very important to remember we are very fortunate to be here in the U.S., where these attacks happen relatively infrequently compared to other areas of the world, as frightening as they are, when you consider places like Iraq, Syria, Pakistan — we are so much safer than these regions. We have a much greater chance of being hit by a car than we do of being the victim of a terror attack.

  2. Lynn Goldman:

    Basically the anopheles likes to rest on a wall surface between feedings and thus is poisoned by the DDT that is on the walls, also there are insecticide impregnated bed nets -- usually with pyrethroids, and, infrequently, with DDT -- to guard against malaria transmission while sleeping. Bed nets also are very effective.

  3. Yad Vashem:

    The Polish government-in-exile, based in London ... did not work decisively during the war on behalf of Poland's Jewish citizens, much of the Polish resistance in its various movements not only failed to help Jews, but was also not infrequently actively involved in persecuting them.

  4. Abby Schreiber:

    I don’t think it’s necessarily unwise for a business to make a political statement, particularly privately-owned businesses in the fashion sector, said Abby Schreiber, managing editor at Paper Magazine. Fashion has always been about expression, provocation and, not infrequently, politics and, to that end, these designers ’ refusal to dress Melania Trump is not, in and of itself, unusual for this industry. fashion designers have long attempted to tell a story about their brand and vision and to articulate a feeling, emotion or sense of who their customer or ‘ muse ’ is, Schreiber said. And for those designers who are troubled by the hateful, bigoted rhetoric that surrounded Trump’s campaign, it may make sense for them to want to distance their brand and their vision from it. But Robert Casey, President of modeling agency Maggie, Inc., offered a simple solution.

  5. Norman Lear:

    Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently. And if you don't collect all these tiny successes, the big ones don't really mean anything.
