And each particular hair to stand on end, Like quills upon the fretful porcupine.
As low as where this earth Spins like a fretful midge.Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The fretful stir Unprofitable, and the fever of the world Have hung upon the beatings of my heart.william wordsworth
"But suppose your dæmon settles in a shape you don't like?" "Well, then, you're discontented, en't you? There's plenty of fold as'd like to have a lion as a dæmon and they end up with a poodle. And till they learn to be satisfied with what they are, they're going to be fretful about it. Waste of feeling, that is."philip pullman

When the fretful stir Unprofitable, and the fever of the world Have hung upon the beatings of my heart.
And each particular hair to stand on end, Like quills upon the fretful porpentine.
