    To break is to divide sharply, with severance of particles, as by a blow or strain. To burst is to break by pressure from within, as a bombshell, but it is used also for the result of violent force otherwise exerted; as, to burst in a door, where the door yields as if to an explosion. To crush is to break by pressure from without, as an egg-shell. To crack is to break without complete severance of parts; a cracked cup or mirror may still hold together. Fracture has a somewhat similar sense. In a fractured limb, the ends of the broken bone may be separated, tho both portions are still retained within the common muscular tissue. A shattered object is broken suddenly and in numerous directions; as, a vase is shattered by a blow, a building by an earthquake. A shivered glass is broken into numerous minute, needle-like fragments. To smash is to break thoroughly to pieces with a crashing sound by some sudden act of violence; a watch once smashed will scarcely be worth repair.

How to use shiver in a sentence?

  1. PSB:

    Go for the idea that catches your breath, gives you goosebumps, and sends a shiver of fear down your spine. Because that idea can take you to milestones you haven't dared to achieve yet!

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I sometimes wonder that life can probably be compared best to a Rose Garden. Some writers like to do so in their efforts to romanticize life. Often as we walk through the rose garden, we become refreshed and rejuvenated by the warm, pleasant and sensuous breeze that carries captivating exquisite fragrance of beautiful roses. Life seems so remarkably wonderful at that very moment. Then on some occasions as we walk through the same rose garden, the sight of dried rose bushes with wilted flowers, dried rose petals and heaps of dead leaves all around saddens us deep inside. The cold callous currents of strong wind make us shiver, with the shocking harsh reality about the uncertainty of life. Oh, life can be so awesome and beautiful at times, and yet so cold and cruel on occasions. Such is the duality of life that reverberates and resonates in sync with the Rose Garden!

  3. Pete Buttigieg:

    Even as we shiver, there is joy, are you ready to go in that hall and leave no question about who has the momentum right now?

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Human life is often likened to a Rose Garden. It makes perfect sense to me. As we walk through the garden, we are always refreshed and rejuvenated by the breeze that carries amazingly capturing exquisite fragrance of beautiful flowers all around. Life seems so wonderful at that very moment. And on some occasions, a sight of dried plants, with dry petals lying around, plucked dead flowers and heaps of dead leaves all around sadden us a lot. A cold brutal breeze makes us shiver with the shocking dark reality check. Life can be so amazing and beautiful, and yet can be so cold and cruel sometimes....just like a Rose Garden.

  5. Margarita Rohr:

    Vitamin B12 deficiency can be caused by a poor diet, so aim to get more lean meat, fish, and dairy into your meals. But sometimes low levels are triggered by an absorption issue. If your diet is high in B12 but you shiver all the time, check in with your doctor for a vitamin B12 test. RELATED : 21 Important Facts About Vitamin B12 Deficiency You're a woman Find yourself in a constant battle with your spouse or male officemates for control of the thermostat ? Turns out that feeling cold really is a gendered condition. In general, women are better at conserving heat than men.
