Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt (2002)
The Americans are stuck in Iraq and have no way out. They are like a wolf whose tail has been caught in a trap.ali khamenei
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
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
Anyone taking classics or history for the prestige is either at Oxford or stuck in 1909.
I certainly haven't stuck my face in the wilderness.gina barberi
As for me, I'm stuck in a loveless relationship with myself, the backseat driver who can't stop tutting and nagging. There's no escape from me's relentless criticism. Me even knows what I'm thinking, and routinely has a pop at Me for that. "You're worrying about your obsessive degree of self-criticism again," whines Me. "How pathetically solipsistic." And then it complains about its own bleating tone of voice and starts petulantly kicking the back of the seat, asking if we're there yet.charlie brooker
I confess some part of me thought, If only I'd stuck around, this is the sort of catastrophe I might have created.michael lewis
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
In Germany I ingested the entire contents of the hotel mini-bar before a show and stuck my fingers in this guy's nostrils because I thought they would fit.grace slick
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
Shakespeare a plagiarist Beethoven with a horn stuck into his head against deafness the impossibility the impossibility Nietzsche gone totally mad the impossibility of being human all too human this breathing in and out out and in these punks these cowards these champions these mad dogs of glory moving this little bit of light toward us impossibly.Charles Bukowski
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
"Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia." "Huh?" I asked. "You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present."john green
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
I know so well what becomes of unmarried women who aren't prepared to occupy a position. I've seen such pitiful cases in the South barely tolerated spinsters living upon the grudging patronage of sister's husband or brother's wife! stuck away in some little mouse-trap of a room encouraged by one in-law to visit another little birdlike women without any nest eating the crust of humility all their life! Is that the future that we've mapped out for ourselves?tennessee williams
Diamonds are only chunks of coal, That stuck to their jobs, you see.
Scared the lights'll turn green You'll have to be seen You'll be like anybody else Scared the lights'll turn red You're stuck in your head You can't run it to even her How you gonna get through the year?Liz phair
Why you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder!Princess Leia Organa
...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.
It's about what you can do at that particular moment. If someone is stuck in a fire and you say, "Well, two years ago I could have done something that would have saved you" then you are useless. Parkour is not what you could have done for whatever excuse. If you aren't able to help someone, what use are you?David Bell
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
