Examples of feverish in a Sentence

  1. 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. It is a house in the act of being built. Every participant in victory sweats and puffs, carrying the stones for the building of the house. But defeat is a thing of weariness, of incoherence, of boredom. And above all of futility.

  2. George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, Epistle Dedicatory:
