Examples of discreditable in a Sentence

  1. H.L. Mencken:

    The difference between a moral man and a man of honor is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Ingratitude is thinking nothing of what has been done or given to you by someone else i.e. not feeling bound to show gratitude. I mean, ingratitude is a discreditable lack of gratitude. Yes! you heard me right and that is just what it is. So, you've got to show gratitude to all (everyone and everything) for every bit of kindness, love, care, gift and stuffs like that, which you've already received. And most importantly, never hesitate to show more and more gratitude to God (almighty) who gives you all that you ever need (the four necessities of life which are shelter, food, clothin­g and water) As well, always show gratitude to him (God) even for your life itself. Because, he is the sole giver and taker of every life including yours. Now listen up, you should show gratitude and you've got to resolve to show gratitude to all (everyone and everything). For, until and unless you resolve and learn to show gratitude to everyone and everything, you are an Ingrate and you will remain an Ingrate for life (period). You can say I said so, anyway. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Ingratitude is thinking nothing of what has been done or given to you by someone else. That is to say, not feeling bound to show gratitude. In other words, ingratitude is a discreditable lack of gratitude. In fact, it is simply lack of appreciations or thanks for something given or done to you or to someone else. Yes! you heard me right and that is just what it is. So, you've got to show gratitude to others for every bit of their kindness, love, care, gift and stuffs like that which you have already received from them. NOTE: Most importantly, never hesitate to show more and more gratitude to God almighty who gives you all that you ever need (the four necessities of life which are shelter, food, clothin­g and water) As well, always show gratitude to him (God) even for your life itself. Because, he is the sole giver and taker of every life including yours. Now listen up, you should show gratitude and you've got to resolve to show gratitude to all and sundry including God. For, until and unless you resolve and learn to show gratitude to everyone, you are an ingrate and you will remain an ingrate for life (period). -Emeasoba George
