Examples of memorable in a Sentence

  1. Frank Sadler:

    Password re-use is a major risk that can be avoided -- nobody should protect sensitive data with something that can be guessed, like their first name, local football team or favorite band, using hard-to-guess passwords is a strong first step and we recommend combining three random but memorable words. Be creative and use words memorable to you, so people can't guess your password.

  3. Ron Lieber:

    A dad might give a coupon to drop whatever he's doing and play a game, or to ditch work once in the next 12 months and do whatever the kid wants to do, things like that don't cost anything, and are often incredibly memorable.

  4. Og Mandino:

    Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm. Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no mater how frightening or difficult, a new meaning. Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity but with it you can accomplish miracles.

  5. Yas Links:

    I love Yas Links for the fantastic views and the variety of challenges it presents, each hole is different and all are memorable, but the final stretch from 15 to 18 embeds itself in the memory forever. The windy par 3 17th hole has to be regarded as the signature hole and the tricky Par 5 18th has wrecked many a good golf card !
