How to use oyster in a sentence?

  1. Kimball House co-owner Bryan Rackley:

    Education is our game, if we're just throwing them out with crackers and hot sauce, we're not giving people the chance to appreciate the oyster to the level we're enjoying them.

  2. Franklin Delano Roosevelt:

    Get action. Seize the moment. Man was never intended to become an oyster.

  3. Victor Hugo:

    From the oyster to the eagle, from the swine to the tiger, all animals are to be found in men and each of them exists in some man, sometimes several at the time. Animals are nothing but the portrayal of our virtues and vices made manifest to our eyes, the visible reflections of our souls. God displays them to us to give us food for thought.

  4. Phyllis McGinley:

    Women are the fulfilled sex. Through our children we are able to produce our own immortality, so we lack that divine restlessness which sends men charging off in pursuit of fortune or fame or an imagined Utopia. That is why we number so few geniuses among us. The wholesome oyster wears no pearl, the healthy whale no ambergris, and as long as we can keep on adding to the race, we harbor a sort of health within ourselves.

  5. Erin Burnett:

    Oysters don't take long to cook, but you don't want an overcooked, rubbery oyster, just keep an eye on it.
