Examples of masterpiece in a Sentence

  1. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    It is normal to look up to someone right here or out there i.e. you are expected to admire and respect anyone who is worthy of admiration and respect. But, you shouldn't wish to be like anybody, no matter his or her socioeconomic status. Now listen up, nobody is better off than you. Yes! and in case you don't know, you are God's masterpiece and one of a kind as well Scripture reference (Ephesians 2:10). So, you've got to stop wishing to be like anybody right here or out there. Take Note: if every human is the same, this world would be so boring and uninteresting to live in. Lest you forget, monotony kills interest and much more than that, but variety is the spice of life. In other words, our uniqueness is what actually makes the world vivacious and interesting to live in, (IMHO) in my humble (honest) opinion. ~Emeasoba George

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I often think that each time an artist paints a beautiful portrait, a writer creates a masterpiece in literature, a scientist invents a major breakthrough, all of these creations originate and emerge straight from the heart, with enormous love and tremendous passion, And yet the artist, the writer and the scientist are merely the bystanders, the onlookers, and the spectators of the amazing process of creation....just like a mother giving birth to a beautiful baby. We all live and strive for that moment of creation, the moment that fulfills one's life and makes it complete, total and meaningful. That's why the creattion and continuation of life stream are the greatest achievements in human life, in my view.

  3. Dr. Jose P. Rizal:

    The heart of success, the painter of mind.You are the great masterpiece. Practice it high.

  4. Christopher Young:

    The only way to triumph over death is making your life a masterpiece.

  5. Charlie Craig:

    In 2012, fiancs Charlie Craig and David Mullins attempted to order a cake to celebrate Charlie Craig and David Mullins upcoming wedding, from the Masterpiece Cakeshop, in Lakewood, Colo. Jack Phillips, Jack Phillips, told Charlie Craig and David Mullins Jack Phillips would sell Charlie Craig and David Mullins any other baked goods in Jack Phillips store, but would not design a wedding cake because it was in conflict with Jack Phillips Christian beliefs. Charlie Craig and Charlie Craig and David Mullins filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which ruled in Charlie Craig and David Mullins favor, as did the Colorado Court of Appeals. In its determination in favor of Jack Phillips, the high court did not alter Colorado's anti-discrimination law, instead the case turned on the way in which the baker was treated by Colorado Civil Rights Commission. Writing for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote,... some of the commissioners at the commission's formal, public hearings endorsed the view that religious beliefs can not legitimately be carried into the public sphere or commercial domain, disparaged Philips' faith as despicable and characterized it as merely rhetorical, and compared Justice Anthony Kennedy invocation of Justice Anthony Kennedy sincerely held religious beliefs to defenses of slavery and the holocaust. Charlie Craig, Charlie Craig and David Mullins, and the ACLU, which assisted in the case, agreed, on that part of the decision. We never disagreed about Charlie Craig religious convictions, we just think when you open the doors to the public, you have to serve everyone equally. Kristen Waggoner, Jack Phillips attorney, insists this isn't about discrimination, but religious freedom, which Kristen Waggoner said the high court affirmed. Jack Phillips said Jack Phillips lost 40 percent of Jack Phillips business after the initial lawsuit was filed six years ago. Jack Phillips has since been forced to lay off workers. Jack Phillips said Jack Phillips hopes the ruling will boost business.
