Examples of lifetime in a Sentence

  1. Baron Patrick Maynard Stuart Blackett:

    May every young scientist remember... and not fail to keep his eyes open for the possibility that an irritating failure of his apparatus to give consistent results may once or twice in a lifetime conceal an important discovery.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    In the course of lifetime, you will meet many people who will misconstrue your gentle manners with weakness, and try to either take advantage of you, or intimidate you. You must be strong, as strong as the Diamond, while dealing with such predatory people. You must show them by your words and actions that your gentleness is not weakness that can be pushed around. You must make them realize that your compassion, kindness and humility mustn't be mistaken as passive or meek behavior. In my view, week, timid and spineless are those predatory people, who lack strength and courage; while you are the one with true inner strength and tremendous courage - because it is the Gentleness that is indeed founded on strength and prompted by Love. Stay gentle, kind, compassionate and yet extremely strong - because you are the Diamond, and you must maintain your character.

  3. Emeasoba George:

Yes of course, whoever that often gives an excuse is as well likely to achieve little things or nothing in his/her lifetime. So, hence forth do give less excuses or no excuse at all.

  4. Kirstin Downey:

    She was hugely well known in her lifetime and when FDR was alive, but very quickly after her death, male historians started to write her out of the story. It's really extraordinary.
