    • 2013, Robert Barnard, Death and the Princess:
      All the bowing and scraping was enough to make a cat laugh, but the Princess took it all in her stride — her demeanour commonsensical (didn't everyone who went by train get this sort of treatment?) and a shade demure.
    • 2015, Kevin K. Kumashiro, Bad Teacher! How Blaming Teachers Distorts the Bigger Picture, page 43:
      And that is precisely the point—frames have the power to obscure the bigger picture, to narrowly and misleadingly define the problem, and to make imaginable only certain solutions.
