Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt (2002)
For myself, I would much prefer to be stuck with Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament, than stuck with George Bush in the White House. It is the difference between losing your wallet at a cock fight and losing all your credit cards forever, along with your job and your house and your ability to earn enough money to pay off your sports-gambling debts or even a six-pack on game day. . .hunter s. thompson
Anyone taking classics or history for the prestige is either at Oxford or stuck in 1909.
She wears a artful bonnet, feathers stuck upon it,Coverin' a fringe all curled;She's just about the sweetest, prettiest and neatestDoner in the wide, wide world!And she'll be Missis 'Awkins, Missis 'En'ry 'Awkins,Got 'er for to name the day;Settled it last Monday, so to church on Sunday,Off we trots the donkey shay!albert chevalier
In his defense of Ambassador John Bolton and repudiation of the United Nations and the Third World, referring to the Third World, "That latter group includes a huge number of so-called nations, little more than spots on the map that would get invaded, taken over, subsumed, eliminated, except no-one wants to get stuck with their problems of poverty, disease and corruption."john gibson
On the face of it, these look like bad times for Labour and for Ed Miliband's leadership. There seems to be no strategy, no narrative and little energy. Old faces from the Brown era still dominate the shadow cabinet and they seem stuck in defending Labour's record in all the wrong ways: we didn't spend too much money, we'll cut less fast and less far, but we can't tell you how.glasman, maurice, baron glasman
I see the possibility of being ‘made new’ again and the gift of rebirth is all that lets anyone really live.. ..The great secret.. .. is never to get stuck, imprisoned in common social patterns. They always paralyse the real quality of life – the ‘going onward’ is all that matters, and the dead moments in one’s life through trying to be a unit in any society or social concept are terrifying really.marsden hartley
I didn’t have much, but I was always happy to share what I did have. It seemed like every African that came to New York City would show up at my apartment door at dinnertime, and I couldn’t turn them away. I wasn’t much older than any of them, but they started calling me ‘Mama Africa’ and the name stuck.miriam makeba
Probably in most education systems in a sense we are stuck with the disciplines as we created them last, last century and before that. It’s the boundaries where the excitement is and where we will be in the future.horst ludwig störmer
A man who publishes his letters becomes a nudist — nothing shields him from the world's gaze except his bare skin. A writer, writing away, can always fix things up to make himself more presentable, but a man who has written a letter is stuck with it for all time.
Jim was most ruined for a servant, because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches.mark twain
The most dismaying call of this kind came one night at nine o'clock from a youth of sixteen who said: "I've got to have this essay ready to hand in tomorrow morning, and I'm stuck. Can you give me some help with these-here Jungian archeotypes?" It was impossible to explain to him that no telephone conversation could help him; indeed, in his agony, I do not know what would have helped him except sudden and merciful death.Robertson Davies
If we don't want to define ourselves by things as superficial as our appearances, we're stuck with the revolting alternative of being judged by our actions, by what we do.ellen degeneres
The clerical work is par for the course. "Keep on file in numerical order" means throw in wastebasket. You'll soon learn the language. "Let it be a challenge to you" means you're stuck with it; "interpersonal relationships" is a fight between kids; "ancillary civic agencies for supportive discipline" means call the cops; "Language Arts Dept." is the English office; "literature based on child's reading level and experiential background" means that's all they've got in the Book Room; "non-academic-minded" is a delinquent; and "It has come to my attention" means you're in trouble.bel kaufman
The ‘Women’ had to do with the female painted through all ages, all those idols, and maybe I was stuck to a certain extent; I couldn’t go on. It did one thing for me: it eliminated composition, arrangement, relationships, light – all this silly talk about line, colour and form – because that was the thing I wanted to get hold of.willem de kooning
The apple cannot be stuck back on the Tree of Knowledge ; once we begin to see , we are doomed and challenged to seek the strength to see more, not less.Arthur Miller
Diamonds are only chunks of coal, That stuck to their jobs, you see.
Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder!Princess Leia Organa
Switzerland is a small, steep country, much more up and down than sideways, and is all stuck over with large brown hotels built on the cuckoo clock style of architecture.ernest hemingway
...and he stuck a bit of cotton on the second wound . With each stroke of the razor , another bit of cotton joined the crop sprouting on the Hoca’s left cheek, “Now”, said the barber , “I will do the other side”.
Alpine skiers look like their feet are stuck in cement. Telly skiing is about mobility, rhythm, and balance.
The apple cannot be stuck back on the Tree of Knowledge; once we begin to see , we are doomed and challenged to seek the strength to see more, not less.
