Definition of Cavilling:
- "Cowper", Goldwin Smith.
But when twenty- four hours have passed, when a week, when a fortnight have gone by, and find her still cavilling at the smallness of the rooms, the garden's confined space, and the monotony of their lives, then, indeed, Margaret's spirits sink as they have never sunk before.- "Doctor Cupid", Rhoda Broughton.
