How to use uneasy in a sentence?

  1. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley:

    I saw—with shut eyes, but acute mental vision—I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion. Frightful must it be, for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavor to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world.

  2. Tim Stubson:

    Her relationship with that portion of the party has been uneasy from the beginning, and they probably never totally embraced her because she has been the definition of an establishment Republican. But she was right on the policies.

  3. Mitt Romney:

    In terms of what happens in 2020, we’re going to wait and see who runs, if I had to make that decision today, I’d be missing the opportunity to find out what they’re going to do for Utah.

  4. James Comey:

    I think anyone who is serving officer in the government, and you're asked by the President for dinner, I think it is professional courtesy, you're in a difficult position if you refuse to go, but I do know he was uneasy with it.

    A university anywhere can aim no higher than to be as British as possible for the sake of the undergraduates, as German as possible for the sake of the public at large-and as confused as possible for the preservation of the whole uneasy balance.
