when the blackness finally came for her, the things in her eyes were grey. her cheeks were falling apart. circumstance touched her, and she melted into death and utter sadness. that was how my eternal pool was made. it has sat in my heart ever since.

Lance looked at the dictionary in disbelief. What on earth did stagnation mean?! He gave Shiro a questioning look, but he just shrugged helplessly and looked away. Lance tried to find the definition and groaned when he read it.
“Stagnation: a foulness or staleness, as one emanating from a standing pool of water.” Pidge wrinkled her nose in disgust. What a gross word!

I see stagnation in the future, and not just economically. Stagnation of progress. Stagnation of social services. Stagnation of hope, of body and soul and mind. I feel as if I must collect a tower of books to read before the year is out. Cram my brain with other worlds to remind me of the kindness that might yet remain in the one I live it. Drink any semblance of knowledge or story so that the history that unfolds is not so much a repetition of evil, but a repudiation of it.

he’s stuck. almost rotting in place. he seem to be unable to move forward. I wonder what’s holding him down in that place. in that ugly disgusting swamp filled with snakes and mosquitos, why is he not moving? why is he staying? maybe because it’s his reality’s best version. maybe because he don’t know what other places look like. I wonder if this man gets to know what it’s like out there in the fields, will he still stay?

unaware of its’ creation
you have fallen into stagnation
there is no determined duration
nor a single causation
what a sad location
possessing no sensation

The feeling of being stagnant? Not moving. I feel stagnant when I do the same thing everyday. School. School makes me feel stagnant. Only because I let it. I should listen more. It’ll let me see the difference in each day and the differences among the teachers. I put stagnation upon myself. I should change that.

It’ll let me see the difference in each day and the differences among the teachers. I put stagnation upon myself. I should change that. I want to try something new. Maybe that can be my new year’s resolution? Man, I really need a new year to make moves like this…that’s not right. I think I want to start now. Can I though? Am I REALLY motivated enough?
sometimes in life we hit a point and stagnation kicks in. We feel lost in a sea of nothingness and inferiority.

Stagnation is how I am feeling right now. Really dead inside and lost and stupid like I am in a rut and can’t go on and it’s all just dead and unchanging. I don’t know what I’m doing or how long 60 seconds is or anything so I am just going to keep writing and I wish I had a better keyboard because my fingers hurt and I can’t tell if tim’s up or not up because it’s in white letters and it’s so confusing because it says that time is up and it said that before I started writing so I don’t understand why it would do that or maybe it’s actually counting words, not time because the black circle is getting blacker the more I write, so I don’t know maybe it is my imagination because now it doesn’t seem to be changing, and I’m sure this is more than 60 seconds by now so,,,

I feel stagnant here at Aimee’s. I don’t know if that will go away at a new place with a room or not. But I need to figure something out. Stagnant is not a good feeling to feel. Or thought.

The world stops. Phase of stagnation.
Is it though?
An event or a choice?
The world won’t change.

Hollywood script stagnation
[All the decent movies and TV are copied from over-seas, e.g. from Korean drama.
Don’t think some of us don’t see this happening too often.Come on, Hollywood!
Find the talented ones out there, get the innovative! Hint: If a story is set in a cliched
place like New York city, then you’ve already failed and made me yawn.]

Ich stagniere schon seit Jahren. Jedenfalls kommt mir das so vor. Vor langer, langer Zeit hatte ich noch die Illusion, dass ich mich nur mal richtig doll anstrengen muss, einmal die Grenze überwinden, einmal aus mir rauskommen – und schwupps, wird alles anders. Wurde es aber nicht. Trotz meines Wollens, trotz meiner Anstrengung, trotz meiner Bereitsschaft.

A process of deterioration and decomposition. A noun to describe foul water, something that is not fresh. It is not improving or developing rather the opposite

The economy stagnation was responsible to widespread an international unemployment crisis.
By Vitor Hugo Martins on 11.14.2016
When life stops being a new and exciting journey, when you aren’t looking forward to tomorrow or trying something new. To stagnate is to let life go by without a sense of wonder and exploration. Stagnation is death.

The economic stagnation was responsible for widespread an international crisis.
I often feel that sense of stillness creep in not when I’m alone, but when I’m with someone I like very much. I begin to worry that things have become too steady. I’ve always been scared of permanence. I worry that I’m trapped in a situation because I don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings.

The water moved listlessly, the leaves floating on top of the stream moved in almost unnoticeable increments. The sun was mercilessly hot, and humidity sat thick in the air.

its means the stagnet water that sit for a long time and collects mildew and pond scum thats just gross it also smells
By brennon URL on 11.14.2016
I have totally drawn a blank. The word “stagnation” just reminds me of stagnant water. I guess stagnation simply means the act of being stagnant and not moving. Apparently, my brain is stagnant today.
By Robin on 11.14.2016
It’s utter and thick. There’s no hope when you’re in it and no way of getting out. It holds you helpless, rolling you in the muck and bile, thick and sticky.

Hazel is stagnate at the beginning of the book. Her mother thinks she’s depressed, but she really just doesn’t want to get attached to other people for fear of hurting them when she dies. She prefers to remain where she is and how she is.

it bounces off the walls of this lonely home, and i watch as the sun sets, moving light patterns along the wall.
it’s been so long. it’s been so still.
things have changed now, we both know that.
but i don’t think it’ll ever stop hurting.

It’s this beautiful, wretched place, full of magic and mysteries where there should be glorious sunshine through planes of vaulted glass. He is here beside my like a golden king, and I pale in his presence. I find myself hoping that this is permanent, that this is something more than what I had always thought I would have. But it’s too perfect, too much.

The fabled Stag Nation – the nation of stags.
Okay, fine, I don’t know what stagnation means off the top of my head. Does that mean I’m a horrible writer? Do you want to fight me over it? I have to warn you, I’ve fought before.

He beat his feet on the concrete: “Rein it in, rein it in.”
They belked, then simmered slowly. The stampede ceased.
His eyes grazed over the crowd.
Dozens of doe-eyed looks fell on him. There was a caribou.
“We must stop fawning over white tails and ramming ourselves into the tangled brush of lust.
It does not behoove men of our stature.
We will learn together.
I must congratulate my ungulates for coming here tonight.
Welcome, deer friends, to stag nation!”

Die Welt dreht sich-
weiter und weiter.
Alle haben sich verändert.
Alle bauen sich ein Leben auf.
Wo bin ich?
Steh noch am selben Ort.
Bin noch in der selben Situation.
Keine Änderung in sicht.
Die Welt dreht sich weiter –
weiter und weiter.
Doch stehe ich noch hier
und komme nicht weiter.

To be still. This is a hard one. It feels to me like a large rock hanging from the ceiling of a cave. Unmoving. Not experiencing just watching. You know what I mean. I do. Well anyways

When you’re stuck and not moving forward or making any progress. Being stagnated in life is a bad thing. You want to see growth and progress in the life you live, so anything in your life that is causing you be stagnate should be removed.
By Che on 11.14.2016
Time isn’t moving
And neither am I
Growth is gone
Nothing is born
All of it just stops
The only thing I want
I want to be free
Only then will I be alive
New and useful and needed and loved
