Examples of onward in a Sentence

  1. Franz Kafka:

    From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached.

  2. Nathaniel Hawthorne:

    The world owes all its onward impulses to men ill at ease. The happy man inevitably confines himself within ancient limits.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Never look back, and never move backwards, even if you are forced to by circumstances at odds. Keep your head high, and continue to move upwards and onwards. You will soon discover that there are millions of beautiful things waiting for you on your path chosen, going forward. Even in the worst case scenario, it's always better to get lost on the new and less travelled path moving forward, than to get stuck in the old rut moving backward. Never dwell in the past, always live in the present, and continue to pursue your dreams of the future. You will surely reach your destination, going forward and onward, as your journey continues. A viaxe continúa!

  4. Emeasoba George:

    The life you are living presently is a rare opportunity being denied to many people out there. Thus, endeavour to cherish, utilize and maximize the life you've been given by God. I mean, from now onward, strive to make it count like never before i.e. you've got to engage and indulge yourself only on what really matters. Besides, do disassociate yourself from whoever and whatever that doesn't count. Listen up, although the life you are enjoying currently seems to be your own life to some extent. But never forget, the life in question is not actually yours. Yes! it's for rent. And so, the real owner (God) may decide to withdraw it from you even sooner than you expect it. Therefore, apply your heart unto wisdom and afterwards strive to make your life count.

  5. Henry Ford:

    Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward.
