“Ms. Lipscomb?” Katie asked, turning to her daughter while she unpacked the groceries. “What about her?”
Jill giggled and popped another grape into her mouth. “Today Principal Marks called her a ‘silly, stubborn girl’ just for arguing with him, and guess what she did? She slapped him right in the mouth! Everybody was going crazy!”
Katie smiled and rested a hand on her hip. She loved seeing her daughter so happy these days. “Well I for one believe Principal Marks got what he deserved. Everyone in town is always talking about what a mean guy he is.”
The 12 year-old grinned and nodded.

He was stubborn old man. Even on his death bed he argued with the nurses that he was not dying.

“Goddess, you’re so stubborn,” she muttered, pushing her back onto the mattress. “Lie still!”
She huffed, crossing her arms. “Quit your hovering, woman, I’m FINE,”
Arianna couldn’t help but chuckle at the petulant look on her face. “You’re not fine,” she said. “You’re sick and, whether you like it or not, you need someone to take care of you,”
“You do,” she corrected, offering her a placating smile. “And protesting will only make it worse,”

She was born stubborn. And twenty three years later, that stubborn little girl was just as stubborn headed and full of life as ever. But that stubbornness shined through with her accomplishments. She wouldn’t be where she was today if she didn’t have a demanding personality. She took what she wanted and she never apologized.

It does not matter what the other says or does – she sticks to her own beliefs. Never in life had he met anyone as stubborn as her. She was the definition of stubborness.

“Wow, you’re as stubborn as a mule. Maybe even worse.” Acacia spat, folding her arms as she glared at her older brother.
Jack groaned and rolled his eyes. “I told you already, I’m not going to homecoming! It’s stupid. Besides, I don’t have a date.”
Acacia lifted her eyebrows. “What about Brooke?”
Jack froze for a second. “She’s…she’s a whole different story.”
He had been labelled as being as hard to get going as an angry mule. It was both a curse and a complement and had been on many a mind during the current dispute.

I was born stubborn. Sweet but stubborn. Being polite was mandatory and being a born people pleaser every one loved me…but don’t try to make me do anything. It just wasn’t going to happen. Just ask me politely to do something and was happy to do what you wanted.

The vein in his jaw bulged. She turned away, but his shadow still fell across her face, cool, the image on his hands on his hips cross-like.
“You need to listen to me,” he said.
But she didn’t have to. No matter what he said,s he could cling to her tiny internal reserve. She was an island.

She was a stubborn woman, with shifting eyes and a permanent scowl. Her arms were always ready to fold into a disapproving position.

I have this stubborn rash that won’t seem to go away. I am pretty sure that it’s related to the pain in my foot which I am certain has to do with the itch on my left ear and the bursitis in my right shoulder. Just saying…stubborn. Really.

Stubborn, stubborn, incurred
and revered the tri-tipped spear
impale, poke, joke a joke of blood
and a smile of fear
So near, the scent of death
controls my leer. Deep and enterprising?
luck that I didn’t cut, fuck, why did I let you live
You faggot, go squat down, shit on the ground, don’t
hit your ankles, but then again, how can you miss
when you can’t stop to piss with your fat ass, fatass
Why do we bully each other, excluding the ones
with traits that others don’t have?
Why did species speciate and exclude the differences?
Why is there a natural tendency for replication, avoid mutation, our
genetic awe? Genetics, aw, how cute, he’s got a webbed foot,
sixth finger, double joint…
uncontrollable seizures, a father who is so mentally challenged
that he can’t get this sixth grader to take a shower, so for a..

I finished James Joyce’s Ulysses because I was stubborn, ate all the leftover butternut squash soup because I was stubborn, and got one, two, three, four of my friends to go to a baseball game with me, all because I was stubborn.
Being stubborn was, sadly enough, my best trait. While others gave up too easily, I didn’t know when to quit. And somehow, that kept me alive longer than the rest.

“You’re so stubborn.” Mom huffed. I simply rolled my eyes and pushed my plate away, refusing to eat those darn brussels sprouts. Disgusting.

As he sat typing upon a keyboard, he briskly pressed the f key a few times and then to his annoyance the stubborn key need to be pushed harder and harder and the thing just didn’t work. Bloody Technology.. I could just write this with a pen.

“She’s so bloody stubborn, it isn’t even funny, Matthew.” Leona shot her brother a sideways glance from beneath her golden bangs. “Do you understand what this means?”
Matthew snorted. “I’m not half as dense as you wish I was,” He drawled. “It means we’re on our own for this job, doesn’t it?”
Leona squared her shoulders, lifting her head. “It can’t be that hard, can it? I mean, we did stuff before she ever came along.”
“We’re stealing a ledger that should not exist, from the desk of the headmaster, who also should not exist.” Matthew perked a brow. “I should also point out that you weigh a good two stone more than you did before and I, for one, still have yet to develop any magical talents.”
“Bloody stubborn girl!” Leona banged her head against their dorm window.

she wasn’t stubborn. she wasn’t hard headed. she was the most beautiful person i’d ever come in contact with. her strength moved me and her determination kept me. i’d never been in the presence of a person with such strength. I wanted that.

The truck was stuck. There’s no getting around that fact. James hadn’t expected this, never would have thought that the mud around here was so damn stubborn. He checked his phone – no bars. He flicked his worn zippo and sighed.

My mule is stubborn like a friend. Oh wait. The other way around. So anyway, we were at the cofeeshop. The friend, not the mule. He asked for some donuts but they were expired. I forget what happened next, so I’ll just sing In a Gadda Da vida – nananananan naananan annanan nanana

Stubborn; like a weed. No matter how many times I think you’re gone, you always pop up out of nowhere, at the worst of times. Your like a weed that way. You are unruly, relentless, and stubborn.

He did not move, old Shammah. Why oh why was he so stubborn, so set on protecting those precious lentils. Thousands of warriors could not move him, he fought on, waving his spear and roaring praise to his king. Sweat and blood dripping from every inch of old, stubborn Shammah’s body. When it all ended, down swooped Shammah, picking up a well earnt handful of lentils, crushing the beans in his mouth. His stubbornness had paid off.

He was stubborn, that was for sure. Never had she known a more stubborn person in all her life. Which was saying something, considering her very stubborn family.

She knew the rules, yet she decided to break them anyway. I ran as quickly as I could to the gate, and into the forest where I knew she would be. I only hope I can get there in time to save her from whatever danger she has found.

I was stubborn beyond belief. My framework of the world was inflexible; any new point of view introduced to me was instantly rejected. My personal growth was stunted because of this, I could not change when I did not allow it.

he was so stubborn and i loved and hated that about him. he was stubborn in the sense that once his mind was made, nobody in this world could change it. he was stubborn because once he loved someone he loved them for a long time, and i guess i was the same in loving someone

You are a ram constantly
trying to show your horns,
as if I don’t know you can
carry me and the world.
I’ve seen your heart
and I know. I know.
I just wish you
wouldn’t ram my
worth to prove it.

Despite the repeated calls, offers, and even veiled threats from the construction company’s lawyers, William remained stubborn. He would not sell his home. He would not leave this spot, where the love of his life lay. He had buried his dog here, in his garden, after a long happy life together, and would not leave her until he was to be buried himself.

I’ve always been stubborn. I say that I’m afraid of ants, of the dark, etc., but really what scares me most is not being in control of my life.

Stubborn people are great people to work with when confronted with a difficult task, however, they don’t work well with others all the time, especially when exchanging ideas.

She can be so stubborn. Ask her to do something and its a good bet she’ll tell you to go pound sand and dig in for the duration. Not a team player as they say.

Stubborn is as stubborn gets. Stubborn never compromised. Stubborn does not adapt. Stubborn does not flow. Stubborn lives in the past.
By Jonah on 03.07.2014
My heart tends to be incredibly stubborn. It doesn’t change its mind easily and it doesn’t like to be told what to do. However, when it does finally concede to a shift, my subconscious is quick to let me know.

the wind cut into my skin
my hair whipped my cheek
to commit, to comprehend, to speak
you drove me to the edge
steel digging into my chest
you told me
and I refused
but I fell, all the same
all the same

No tengo ni idea de qué es un Stubborn. Mi papá lo meció el otro día en la cena y parecía algo realmente importante. No me atreví a preguntar porque todos discutían tan intensamente sobre el tema que me pareció imprudente y estúpido interrumpir, así que me limité a asentir como todos hacen, sintiéndome parte de la conversación.

stubborn. his love is stubborn, wanting, wishing, but never conceding. she is stubborn, fighting sleep with thoughts of things she can’t change. they are stubborn, fighting for a future they will never have without pushing, fighting, working.
