How to use nicety in a sentence?

  1. Maya Angelou:

    A bizarre sensation pervades a relationship of pretense. No truth seems true. A simple morning's greeting and response appear loaded with innuendo and fraught with implications. Each nicety becomes more sterile and each withdrawal more permanent.

  2. Dean Acheson:

    The task of a public officer seeking to explain and gain support for a major policy is not that of the writer of a doctoral thesis, qualification must give way to simplicity of statement, nicety and nuance to bluntness, almost brutality, in carrying home a point.
