Brink is the place from which one may fall; as, the river's brink; the brink of a precipice; the brink of ruin.

How to use margin in a sentence?

  1. Ted Ligety:

    One of the cool things about ski racing is there is never a perfect run so it's hard to be satisfied in that sense, you can always go that extra step, i don't think any of us have the realistic goal of having the perfect run. Ski racing is the most variable sport out there, conditions change run-to-run, we only get one chance at it and the margin for error is tiny.

  2. George Osborne:

    It wouldn't be right for me to try and anticipate those numbers, a lot can happen over the coming years, and these forecasts move around, so that's why I think you want a reasonably comfortable margin in delivering the surplus.

    I was proud of the way the guys played, there’s so many learning situations for young players and our guys to play against a great team like the Lakers. We have no margin for error, but the effort, the togetherness, the mental toughness is what we’re trying to build.
