How to use squint in a sentence?

  1. André Breton:

    To speak of God, to think of God, is in every respect to show what one is made of. I have always wagered against God and I regard the little that I have won in this world as simply the outcome of this bet. However paltry may have been the stake (my life) I am conscious of having won to the full. Everything that is doddering, squint-eyed, vile, polluted and grotesque is summoned up for me in that one word: God!

  2. James Trussell:

    You have to squint really hard to make much of the movement (in the unintended pregnancy rate) over the last 20 years until now, this is an extremely welcome decline.
