How to use cliche in a sentence?

  1. Jessica Pegula:

    Its been extremely gratifying. This is what you work for: to win tournaments. It sounds cliche, (but) the journey makes it all that much sweeter, this week, though, it felt different. This final, I felt like I was just ready.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Cuantos más mejor! aprender más que el mundo espera que lo haga. Tartar a las personas con más respeto que ellos mismos esperan. Arriesgar más de lo que crees que sea posible. Sonar más que incluso sus sueños más salvajes. Ampliar sus conocimientos más allá de sus limitaciones normales. Magnificar su vida con más y más - porque "cuantos más mejor" no es un cliché, sino una solución a la auto-mejora, y un mantra para meliorismo en el mundo real en mi humilde opinión.

  3. Carol Channing:

    It was all special, i suppose that sounds cliché, but it's true. Every bit of the production, from opening night to the last night of the tour.

  4. George DuPaul:

    The bottom line is, and you've probably heard this phrase before, it's kind of a cliche, but it's 'catch them being good', pay much more attention to the times when they're following the rules and they're meeting expectations.

  5. Maaria Assami:

    Islam has always been the cliché bad guy, so even if (Tsarnaev) had just passed by the mosque, it would have still been all our fault.
