So slight, yet so round, so trim, yet so pliant—she was grace itself.
The pileus is thin, pliant when fresh but somewhat brittle when dry.
Unhappily I am not a Greek woman, pliant to the whims of artists and voluptuaries.
Bend to the earth our pliant knees, And speak—but as our masters please?
The atmosphere that surrounds us is so often treacherous to our pliant natures!
