How to use muddle in a sentence?

  1. Sybil Adelman:

    I thought I loved him, but I really just needed him. There was so much death and when I was in bed with him, I wasn't thinking about death...Look, what I'm trying to say is that we can't know what's in another person's heart, we can't even know what's in our own. Life turns on a dime, and somehow we muddle through.

  2. J. G. Ballard:

    The car as we know it is on the way out. To a large extent, I deplore its passing, for as a basically old-fashioned machine, it enshrines a basically old-fashioned idea: freedom.

  5. Steven Feldstein:

    These companies, particularly Apple, are really interesting because they have a lot more to lose, particularly given the amount of hardware that they sell in terms of iPhones as well as their manufacturing, i don't know exactly where they're going to end up... short of a lot of public pressure, it's easy to conceive of a scenario where they try to also muddle their way through.
