Examples of oftener in a Sentence

  1. Samuel Smiles:

    It is a mistake to suppose that men succeed through success; they much oftener succeed through failures. Precept, study, advice, and example could never have taught them so well as failure has done.

  2. Thomas Jefferson:

  5. Alan Marshall Beck:

    A little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world.

A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.
