Examples of Bravo in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    La loyauté est une des qualités les plus précieuses qui devient très rare, dans personnelle autant que dans la vie organisationnelle. Les personnes et les organisations qui ont été profondément blessés par quelqu'un en qui ils avaient confiance comme un véritable ami ou un employé loyal sûrement souligner le fait que la fidélité est en effet un double-tranchant, à savoir quelque chose qui peut couper les deux sens. Et pourtant, la loyauté est l'une des qualités les plus nobles et admirables mon humble avis. Mon salut respectueux envers toutes ces personnes exceptionnelles qui sont restés toujours fidèles et toujours fidèles à leurs amis, les familles, les organisations et les nations, malgré les temps difficiles et des circonstances absolument indésirables. Notre monde serait totalement vide, creux, et peu profonde sans ces gens merveilleux. Longue fidélité en direct! Bravo à Semper Fidelis!

  5. Bethenny Frankel:
