How to use maniac in a sentence?

  1. Lee Ermey:

    I love the character, the beautiful thing about Sheriff Hoyt is the simple fact that he’s a sexually perverted homicidal maniac. How do you go over the top with this guy? You can just go crazy with him. Basically, I was allowed to do exactly that. Every character I’ve ever played, I always try to take him right to the edge and not allow him to fall over, but directors have a tendency to pull me back a little bit. I hate to hear ‘Less is more.’ It’s a crock of crap. I think more is more and with this character I was allowed to go just completely berserk, and that’s what I love to do.

  2. George Santayana:

    The irrational in the human has something about it altogether repulsive and terrible, as we see in the maniac, the miser, the drunkard or the ape.

  3. Donald Trump:

    I want to finish up because you got a bad evening out there and you have to drive. You have to do me a favor. I don't really care if you get hurt or not, but I want you to last until tomorrow, OK? if you're going to get hurt, and if you're going to drive like a maniac, do it tomorrow after you vote. And I promise I will come and visit you in the hospital. I promise. No, I'm only kidding, I want you to be careful.

  4. Donald Trump:

    She's got a problem: She's got a maniac on the other side ... (Bernie Sanders is) a socialist slash communist, hillary is standing there listening to this and she's getting dragged over, she's getting dragged so far over to the left.

  5. Kate Bosworth:

    She was a beautiful and complex woman: A sister, a daughter, a wife, a lover. Human. Her life has for too long been overshadowed by the tragedy orchestrated by a raging psychopath, now, more than ever, we feel it is important to focus on the woman — to reaffirm the voice of Sharon Tate — and to take away the megaphone from the maniac.
