How to use nibble in a sentence?

  1. Jack BarskyRead MoreJack Barsky:

    Historically, the KGB has always tried to influence and destabilize events all around the world. The explicitly stated goal of the Soviet Union was world communism organized in a Soviet-like system. Therefore, anything that could destabilize free and democratic nations was fair game. The KGB were champions in the game of 'fake news,' which was called 'disinformation' in the old days. While Russia's goals are not as ambitious as those of the Soviet Union, it is quite clear that the Russian leadership desperately wants to re-establish a strong Russia, on par with the United States. Therefore, anything that helps destabilize the US and other Western countries, anything that turns the focus of those countries inward rather than at the real outward threats would benefit Russia. In my view, it is not possible for a foreign nation to have a significant impact on the outcome of elections in this country. Try as they might, all they will be able to do is nibble around the edges.

  2. Sanam Hafeez:

    Be sure to have healthy snacks on hand so you can nibble throughout the day, as opposed to holding out for bigger meals.

  3. Mariana Fulger:

    Life – a sort of a plate of real-imaginary from which I nibble together with the birds of light and darkness, with the poor and well-to-do of the world at grains of to be once rough (like sharp stones), other times more like the pulp of pomegranates and ripe figs; stairs I have to climb in myself and climb down… to sometimes walk along the roads of infinity, other times, how many, to stop before the first step, waiting for the path home…

  4. Kolby Allard:

    I think there were a few times when I pitched myself out of jams and made some pitches when I had to, i thought there were a few times where I was trying to be a little too cute or nibble a little bit, and thats where I was falling behind.

  5. Michael Matousek:

    The S&P has had five down days in a row and a lot of people are starting to nibble.
