Sample Sentences & Example Usage

    A challenge is a test of time, overcoming a challenge is a sign of strenght or resilience. On the other hand, long-suffering (bearing problems, insults or annoyance patiently) is nothing else but a proof of an unwavering faith (firm relying trust) in God (almighty). ~Emeasoba George.

  3. Charles Krauthammer:

    What struck me above all was not the misstatement of facts or the delusions about what's going on, it's the president's tone. There was this lassitude, passivity, annoyance, he was irritable, you know, 'You guys asking me again if the strategy is working,' as if it's all so obvious that it is.

  4. James Gordon Gilkey:

    Most of us think ourselves as standing wearily and helplessly at the center of a circle bristling with tasks, burdens, problems, annoyance, and responsibilities which are rushing in upon us. At every moment we have a dozen different things to do, a dozen problems to solve, a dozen strains to endure. We see ourselves as overdriven, overburdened, overtired. This is a common mental picture and it is totally false. No one of us, however crowded his life, has such an existence. What is the true picture of your life? Imagine that there is an hour glass on your desk. Connecting the bowl at the top with the bowl at the bottom is a tube so thin that only one grain of sand can pass through it at a time. That is the true picture of your life, even on a super busy day, The crowded hours come to you always one moment at a time. That is the only way they can come. The day may bring many tasks, many problems, strains, but invariably they come in single file. You want to gain emotional poise? Remember the hourglass, the grains of sand dropping one by one.
