How to use troubled in a sentence?

  1. Arthur S. Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha:

    I never seek to defeat the man I am fighting, I seek to defeat his confidence. A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory. Two men are equals - true equals - only when they both have equal confidence.

  2. Michael Woodford:

    I'm deeply troubled that the subliminal effect of being owned by Nikkei will make it (the FT) less willing to publish articles critical of corporate Japan, which includes the Nikkei.

  3. Richard Burr:

    I am troubled by the timing and reasoning of director Comey's termination.

  4. Democratic Socialist:

    In both Norway and Sweden, whose economies are literally dwarfed by the size of our affluence and the extent of our technology, they have no unemployment and no slums, there, men, women and children have long enjoyed free medical care and quality education. This contrast to the limited, halting steps taken by our rich nation deeply troubled me.

  5. Mark Huddleston:

    I am troubled by many things in the language guide, especially the suggestion that the use of the term 'American' is misplaced or offensive, the only UNH policy on speech is that it is free and unfettered on our campuses. It is ironic that what was probably a well-meaning effort to be 'sensitive' proves offensive to many people, myself included.
