How to use cliché in a sentence?

  1. Sienna Miller:

    People sort of complain about the pace. Friends of mine from London find it really intense, but I thrive in that kind of environment, it’s sort of cliche?, but it’s motivating and inspiring. It feels incredibly open and boundaryless. You can barely speak English and be a New Yorker. New York takes anyone, accepts everyone.

  2. Mick Mulvaney:

    You hate to sound like a cliche, but are you better off than you were four years ago ? It's pretty simple, right ? ' It's the economy, stupid.' I think that's easy, people will vote for somebody they don't like if they think it's good for them.

  3. J. William Fulbright:

    To me, the irony of this involvement with size, as I observed earlier, is the unwillingness or inability of so many Americans to identify themselves with something as vast as the United States. Bigger cars, bigger parking lots, bigger corporate structures, bigger farms, bigger drug stores, bigger supermarkets, bigger motion-picture screens. The tangible and the functional expand, while the intangible and the beautiful shrink. Left to wither is the national purpose, national educational needs, literature and theater, and our critical faculties. The national dialogue is gradually being lost in a froth of misleading self-congratulation and cliche. National needs and interests are slowly being submerged by the national preoccupation with the irrelevant.

  4. The Oilers:

    Well, we’re nine games in( 3-6-0), i think we’re done figuring it out here. We need to start putting together games. One night it’s the power play. One night it’s a little bit of a lull. One night it’s another thing. So we have to collectively come together and put together 60 full minutes. It sounds so cliche but all areas need to be riding together and that has n’t happened for us yet.

  5. Peyton Manning:

    Yeah, I haven't made up my mind, but I don't see Peyton Manning knowing that until after the season, whatever cliché you want to use, but I kind of stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand and just deal with this week. That's what I've done all season.
