How to use stalk in a sentence?

  1. Lisa Drayer:

    A 5-inch stalk has only three calories, so that's very low-calorie. A cup of chopped celery has only 20 calories.

  2. English Proverb:

    Danger and delight grow on one stalk.

  3. Auguste Rodin:

    In short, Beauty is everywhere. It is not that she is lacking to our eye, but our eyes which fail to perceive her. Beauty is character and expression. Well, there is nothing in nature which has more character than the human body. In its strength and its grace it evokes the most varied images. One moment it resembles a flower: the bending torso is the stalk; the breasts, the head, and the splendor of the hair answer to the blossoming of the corolla. The next moment it recalls the pliant creeper, or the proud and upright sapling.

  4. Roger Zelazny:

    I stalk my prison like my own ghost...

  5. Robert Collier:

    First the stalk -- then the roots. First the need -- then the means to satisfy that need. First the nucleus -- then the elements needed for its growth.
