Examples of besides in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Women do learn how to be submissive to your husbands, because it brings about true love. Besides, nothing weakens a man like a humble wife. Yes! you heard me right, you can and will terminate marriage pressure by submitting to your husband. Moreover, any woman who shows off how more intelligent or better off she is than her husband will sooner or later have high blood pressure as her nemesis or punishment. -Emeasoba George

  2. Pedro Sanchez:

    Besides being a provocation, which it is, its a move to undermine the institution of the (Catalan government) perpetrated by its own president ... I agree with the government; until there's a Catalan government, 155 will continue to be applied.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    No human is a role model in actual sense or rather logically. These are my reasons. A model is a perfect or ­peculiar representative of a system, an organ or a product. Whereas, a role model itself, is a distinctive model from models. Now, that signifies, a role model should be perfect and peculiar from the crowd or its counterparts. But unfortunately, the reverse is always the case with the so called role models right here or out there. Besides that, every so called role model right here or out there looks up to someone else as his or her own role model too. And that shouldn't be so. Anyway, all I'm saying in essence is this, the so called role models don't deserve to be called role models. Moreover, that infers you've got to be and remain your own model. I mean, always be your own self and stop copying or imitating someone else no matter what happens. Lest you forget, every human is a unique creation i.e. you are God's masterpiece scripture reference (Psalms 139 : 14). Nevertheless, I guess that's a reasonable reason why you should always long to be and remain your own self and not at all any other person or celebrity right here or out there.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    What it takes to sustain every relationship is just compromise. Yes! besides, whoever that longs to be a true love or leader must be a compromiser of his or her right, interest or comfort. -Emeasoba George

  5. Herbert Hoover:

    A good many things go around in the dark besides Santa Claus.
