Up the Down Staircase was a wonderful book about a teacher in NYC and all her trials and tribulations along with the joys of reaching her students. Today, one of my senior adult students said, “I loved to see the sparkle in a student’s eye when she finally go it.”

There’s something about that staircase you often walk down by. It’s lone, old, and creaky. It’s in the middle of the woods. And there’s only one ending to it. You never understand why it’s there, but your peers tell you never to climb up it. Why? Why, you ask yourself, as you climb the stairs, one by one?

A big long staircase that travels from the top of the princesses tower all the way down to the dungeon. It is filled with traps that could stop you right away. Take your life away that day.

A big long staircase that travels from the top of the princesses tower all the way down to the dungeon. It is filled with traps that could stop you right away. Take your life away that day. There are dragons and, fire, and all of that down there. The traps are so deadly of many that are there.
Josh climbed up the staircase. It was old old and creaked loudly with every step. Josh was worried this would wake up his older brother but it didn’t. Mark would kill him if he new what he was doing.

i have a stair case in my house that leads to my attic where monsters hide and when you come up there you die so he never goes up there

I walked down the staircase, following the murmur I heard through the doorway. This sound was uncanny, as I was completely alone in the house. As I descended the staircase, the temperature dropped, step by step. Goosebumps raised on my arms. I paused to catch my breath.

The old wooden staircase screeched as i approached it to go to the kitchen.

As I started walking down the staircase I was trying to be as silent as possible I am not meant to be up at this time everyone would be so angry If they new that I was sneaking out I just can’t let them hear me.
Staircase – you use them to go up and down.
Does anyone ever have a fixation of counting the steps as you go up? I get annoyed when there is an odd number, because then I have an awkward last step if I take the stairs two at a time.
Also, try going up with your hands. It’s entertaining for everyone involved.

As a girl one of my favourite places was my Nana’s staircase. My sisblings and I invented so many games there. We slid down on our bottoms, our tummies. It was a cubby house, an apartment block, a multi-storey house. Such fond memories!

I stayed on the first floor while my family went up to my grandfather’s office. This was because I could not go up the staircase on my own, and there was no wheelchair accessible ramps or elevators to take me to the second story. My brother had offered to carry me, but I laughed and shook my head.
“You go say hi,” I told him, “and just meet me down in the lobby.”

At the top of the stairs
If there is sound, it listens
Takes in feelings more than words
That are pulled out of whispers
Through the heat of frustration
A talk about
Or a talk about
A talk about anything
Not meant to be heard
Outside the room
But when a murmur rises under the floorboards
The door creaks open, and
The Cat crawls out and listens
A fight about
A fight about
A fight about
Neglect, angst, dependency
Or not a damned thing at all
In hopes the knowledge
Would bring it back
Take it all in
Everyone is a puzzle
And these secrets are pieces
Sleeping in the hallway
On the stairs
You are a painting
The Cat will finish
or tear apart at the blank spaces
The Cat must know
All there is to know
And the bed

His entire body ached. A groan of pain left his lips as he laid on the hard, concrete ground of the sidewalk. He knew he should have asked for help trying to carry everything down to his car, but He’d been too stubborn. Now, all his things lay strewn out across the ground, and he possibly had a fractured wrist. Great.

Up and up we go, each one of us step by step, inch by inch, reaching the next stage in Life.
what happens when we reach the final step?
Will there be a lesson to be learned? Perhaps a new experience to give the mundane day to day that spike in blood pressure to feel that youthful excitement again?
should I have ran up the steps? If I did run up the steps, will there be another flight to another level?

I have a staircase. It isn’t very long either. But it hurts to climb it. I have fallen down it several times. But that is what happens when dogs race past you and cats weave around you. But it leads to the out and the in, so I guess I have a staircase.

in stead of looking at how far we’ve come
we look at how far we have left to go
i mean why is a life a staircase you have to go up anyway
anyone whos lived can tell you the path isn’t going to be straight and narrow

Der Fall einer Treppe. Von einer Treppe fallen. Etwas ist auf einer Treppe geschehen. Etwas, das sich nie wieder rückgängig machen lässt. Die meisten Dinge lassen sich nicht rückgängig machen. Alle. Was geschehen ist, ist geschehen. Ich kann die Vase kleben. Ich kann neues Wasser reintun, aber es wird nie wieder dieselbe Vase sein, die es vor dem Zerschütten oder vor dem Zerbrechen war.

I plan one step ahead, you know, like a carpenter building a staircase. Jim looked at me with a confused smile, he didn’t know if I was being serious. Fortunately for Jim I was the most serious I’ve ever been. This competition was going to prove who was the best and I wanted to wipe that pompous grin off Chandler’s face.

The staircase was making unnecessarily many noises. I’m pretty sure that, if it wasn’t for that one squeak too much, they wouldn’t even have noticed I had dropped my gifts’ bag.
Unluckily, a few moments after, my red coat fell down because of a hook or something like that, and they called the police.

I walked up the staircase, it led me to the second floor of the house. On each tread of the stairs was a small carpet tacked down to prevent from slipping on the way down. I felt grateful for them, as I suddenly changed my mind and had to rush back down the stairs.

They wind up and down the narrow passage way stretching from the fifth deck to the elegant seventh deck where we would dine every night on the gorgous ocean. The view on the otherside was specacular but the walk rather tedious. One step after the other, night after night, always to eat the filet minion, the steak, whatever it was, but always on the other side of the stairs.

She sat on the stairs and felt the sadness in her chest rise like it always did. She tamped it down like she always did. She forced oxygen into her lungs, the medicine for her despair. Laughter? No way. Just breathing deeply.

Everyone enters the stairs of life and no one can bypass them. So, just do it and don´t think too much about it.

goes up and allows you to get to another level. Also allows you to come down. You can use it to decorate and put things under as storage. It can be wood or carped, sometimes even concrete. It can be circular or straight, all kinds of patterns. You can even have multiple staircases in one room.
