How to use muck in a sentence?

  1. Bill Mitchell:

    You don't need to be a grand muckety-muck and fly. It's just ridiculous.

  2. George Lucas:

    They looked at the stories, and they said, ‘We want to make something for the fans,’ they decided they didn’t want to use those stories, they decided they were going to do their own thing. …They weren’t that keen to have me involved anyway — but if I get in there, I’m just going to cause trouble, because they’re not going to do what I want them to do. And I don’t have the control to do that anymore, and all I would do is muck everything up.

  3. Winifred Hamilton:

    When people are in their homes in the muck stage, they really need to be protected.

  4. George Lucas:

    They decided they didn’t want to use those stories, they decided they were going to do their own thing. …They weren’t that keen to have me involved anyway — but if I get in there, I’m just going to cause trouble, because they’re not going to do what I want them to do. And I don’t have the control to do that anymore, and all I would do is muck everything up.

  5. Aldous Huxley:

    Classic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. ROLLING IN THE MUCK IS NOT THE BEST WAY OF GETTING CLEAN.
