Examples of tangled in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    When I was growing up in a small village in India, the fairy-tales and children's stories led me to believe that villains and bad guys look like monsters, and they are really very rude and crude in their behavior. The movies during my generation also strengthened that perception. As I grew up and travelled around the world, I soon realized the reality that the bad guys and villains are often good looking, well-behaved, silky smooth and sharp and smart etc....often too smart to gain your complete confidence before their brutal betrayal and deceitfully back-stabbing you - when you least expect it. We all discover this harsh reality hard way, after getting entangled at least once in their tantalizing tangled web of deception, that the appearances can often be deceptive, and always too good to be true. And yet, not all the times but only occasionally, the dreamer and optimist inside us still likes to believe those fairy-tales and the happy-ending movies from childhood....

  2. Sir Walter Scott:

    O, what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive!

  3. Rudyard Kipling:

    The Three in One, the One in Three? Not so! To my own Gods I go. It may be they shall give me greater ease than your cold Christ and tangled Trinities.

  4. Thomas De Gendt:

    I'm fine but it was just frustrating, it was a key moment in the race. ( Michael) Woods crashed and took out Giant( Moscow) and me and I just got tangled in Giant's bike.

  5. John Alejandro King, a.k.a. The Covert Comic, www.covertcomic.com:

    Oh what a tangled web we weave / When first we practice to deceive / But when by chance our deception proves true / The web we've wove is burst clear through
