How to use tiresome in a sentence?

  1. Lewis Lapham:

    We might make a public moan in the newspapers about the decay of conscience, but in private conversation, no matter what crimes a man may have committed or how cynically he may have debased his talent or his friends, variations on the answer Yes, but I did it for the money, satisfy all but the most tiresome objections.

  2. George Eliot:

    Comprehensive talkers are apt to be tiresome when we are not athirst for information; but, to be quite fair, we must admit that superior reticence is a good deal due to lack of matter. Speech is often barren, but silence also does not necessarily brood over a full nest. Your still fowl, blinking at you without remark, may all the while be sitting on one addled nest-egg; and, when it takes to cackling, will have nothing to announce but that addled delusion.

  3. Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire:

    Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.

  4. Henry Adams:

    As for America, it is the ideal fruit of all your youthful hopes and reforms. Everybody is fairly decent, respectable, domestic, bourgeois, middle-class, and tiresome. There is absolutely nothing to revile except that it's a bore.

  5. Marya Mannes:

    But the silly male fool is often unaware of how much a look,a touch, a word can hold for a woman.Nor does he seem to have any idea at all of the degree to which their absence can make her cross,resentful ,tiresome." This is from her essay "The Power Men have over Women
