How to use weariness in a sentence?

  3. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry:

    Commonly, people believe that defeat is characterized by a general bustle and a feverish rush. Bustle and rush are the signs of victory, not of defeat. Victory is a thing of action.

But defeat is a thing of weariness, of incoherence, of boredom. And above all of futility.

  4. David Boaz:
