Examples of immortal in a Sentence

  1. Lucius Annaeus Seneca:

  2. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Truth and reality of true love prove when it departs from its beloved arms for immortal life.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Immortality is defined as the indefinite continuation of a person's existence even after death. In other words, it is a never-ending existence, regardless of whether or not the body dies. I mean, it is the state of being able to live perpetually. That is to say, an immortal being is anyone who has achieved immortality (enduring fame). And consequently, he or she will never be forgotten. Because, he or she deserves to be remembered and celebrated globally or perpetually. Now listen up, many mortals like you have already achieved immortality through their passions, generosities, magnanimities, sagacities, professions, careers and through their God-given resources, gifts, talents, inventions, discoveries, creativities, originalities, ingenuities, published books, quotes, thoughts, insights, motivations, inspirations and other publications. For instance, all writers or authors right here or out there have already achieved immortality via their published books, quotes, insights, ideas, motivations, inspirations and via other written works or publications. In fact, that's why they (authors or writers) will surely be remembered and celebrated globally or perpetually throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations). Yes! because the writers or authors published books, quotes, insights, ideas, motivations, inspirations and other written works or publications will surely be read, shared, assimilated, adopted, utilized, celebrated or criticized globally and perpetually by the posterity ahead (all future generations ahead). Anyway, that connotes and infers, if you (personally) really long to be remembered or celebrated globally and perpetually after your demise, then you should strive to achieve immortality now that you are still alive either through your passion, profession, career, generosity or through your God-given sagacity, knowledge, gift, talent, resources, thoughts, insights, ideas or stuffs like that. Better still, endeavour to write and publish something worth reading or endeavour to succeed in doing things that are worth writing. All I'm saying is that you too can make a difference and you can equally succeed in leaving a positive legacy behind for the posterity ahead. Believe you me, you can do just that. Note: I (personally) do believe in you. So come on, dare to believe in your own self. ~Emeasoba George

  4. Josef Stalin:

    The leaders come and go, but the people remain. Only the people are immortal.

  5. Albert Pine:
