How to use sprightly in a sentence?

  1. William Schaffner:

    Some of us in the scientific community here in the US have been a little surprised at the sprightly competitiveness of some of the comments from our colleagues at Oxford. We don't usually see that in public pronouncements, we've been grumpy with our national political leaders about providing inaccurate information, and we should hold scientific leaders to those same standards.

  2. Omar Khayyam:

    By Fate full many a heart has been undone, And many a sprightly rose made woe-begone; Plume thee not on thy lusty youth and strength: Full many a bud is blasted ere its bloom.
