How to use stiffening in a sentence?

  1. E. M. Forster:

    Faith, to my mind, is a stiffening process, a sort of mental starch, which ought to be applied as sparingly as possible.

  2. Elbert Hubbard:

    The point I wish to make is this: [President William] McKinley gave Rowan a letter to be delivered to Garcia; Rowan took the letter & did not ask, Where is he at? By the Eternal! there is a man whose form should be cast in deathless bronze & the statue placed in every college of the land. It is not book-learning young men need, nor instruction about this and that, but a stiffening of the vertebrae which will cause them to be loyal to a trust, to act promptly, concentrate their energies: do the thing. Carry a message to Garcia!
