How to use languid in a sentence?

  1. Edmund Burke:

    In doing good, we are generally cold, and languid, and sluggish; and of all things afraid of being too much in the right. But the works of malice and injustice are quite in another style. They are finished with a bold, masterly hand; touched as they are with the spirit of those vehement passions that call forth all our energies, whenever we oppress and persecute.

  2. Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

    Poor little Foal of an oppressed race! I love the languid patience of thy face.
