Examples of importunate in a Sentence

  1. Phyllis McGinley:

    Sisters are always drying their hair. Locked into rooms, alone, they pose at the mirror, shoulders bare, trying this way and that their hair, or fly importunate down the stair to answer the telephone.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    The winner takes it all, whereas the loser often stands small and feels overwhelmed by the victory not just because of anything strange. But, just because the winner is importunate (very persistent). Now, that is to say, what makes a difference between a winner and a loser is nothing else but persistence. Yes! winners are known to be persistent and that is why they win eventually. On the other hand, losers do give up easily, no wonder they finally become failures. Thus, you've got to be persistent and remain persistent in all you do, most especially in the pursuit of your dreams, visions or aspirations. Note: Donald J. Trump won the U.S.A Presidential Election because he was persistent. He refused to quit the presidential race even when the race appeared to be against him. ~Emeasoba George
