Examples of fickle in a Sentence

  1. Omar Khayyam:

    Lament not Fortune?s mutability, And seize her fickle favours ere they flee; If others never mourned departed bliss, How should a turn of Fortune come to thee?

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Beauty, Fame and Power have their common denominator - they all are fickle. They can also be described as faithless, flighty and frivolous. They all enable you to soar high when they are with you, and yet they also drop you from the greatest heights without any prior warning. They all trip you up when you are least expecting it. Fools are hypnotized by them, while Wise manage them smartly keeping their feet firmly on the ground. Be Wise, and do not get carried away with Beauty, Fame and Power. Good luck!
