Usage examples for Decaying
Surely, then, your real life has lain in the justice you have done, the wrongs you have righted, the trust you have built up in the people's hearts, and not in these decaying walls which no enemy ever threatened in your time nor for a hundred years before you came." – Major Vigoureux by A. T. Quiller-Couch
