Examples of Besides in a Sentence

  1. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Any life without vision is meaningless. Yes! because, vision per se gives life a meaning. Besides that, until and unless you are a visionary, you are bound to lack foresight for life. ~Emeasoba George

  2. Friedrich Nietzsche, The World to Power, section 1064:

    This world is the will to power - and nothing besides!

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Never be carried away by anything or anyone no matter the beauty or handsomeness. In fact, you should not be carried away by fashion, because it changes with time. You don't have to be carried away by beauty or handsomeness, because it fades away with time. Refuse to be carried away by money or riches, because you are here (on earth) just for a little while. Oh! yes, no human can live forever i.e. no one can and will ever enjoy his or her riches or wealth forever (Proverbs 27:24). Moreover, refuse to be carried away by your knowledge or wisdom, because it will cease once you are dead. Besides that, desist from boasting or bragging about your properties or assets, for they will surely become old-fashioned sooner or later and consequently they will depreciate in value and at worst become worthless. Conclusively, all of the above proves that everything or everyone comes and goes unimpeachably (beyond doubt and criticism) and then life goes on as ever. In other words, nothing or no one is perpetual (never ending or never changing) naturally and in actual sense. Therefore, always bear all of the above in mind. ~Emeasoba George

  4. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    A visionless person is a purposeless person. Yes! besides that, a visionless life is equally not worth living at all. Thus, you've got to be a visionary, as well discover and fulfill your purpose for being here (on earth). ~Emeasoba George

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Depression leads to frustration more or less. Moreover, a depressed person is most likely to become perplexed/confused for life. Now, you've known that, dare to reject/resist depression and it's end result i.e. frustration. I mean, you've got to cheer yourself up irresspective of whatever circumstance/difficulty that battles/faces you. Besides, there is a lot of hope for every living human including "YOU". Yes of course, it's only the dead that is hopeless.
