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. Barry Schwartz:

    The only way to get out of this muck, out of this quicksand the market's in, is to have a few good days in a row.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Tom Kennedy:

    The uncertainty is more anxiety-inducing than anything but I think once people understand what they need to do, you just have to get on with it and adapt and do what you can to muck through.
