Examples of remembrance in a Sentence

  1. Augusta E. Rundell:

    Christmas--that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance--a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Those who have acquired or accumulated wealth, riches, knowledge, wisdom or stuffs like that for only themselves or their families are not worthy of global and perpetual celebration or remembrance. And they will never be celebrated and remembered globally or perpetually. Yes! because, their accumulated or acquired riches, wealth, knowledge, wisdom or stuffs like that will surely die with them. Consequently, they will be forgotten so soon after their demise. On the other hand, those who have succeeded in enriching someone else or others with their God-given money, wealth, riches, knowledge, wisdom or stuffs like that are worthy of global and perpetual celebration or remembrance. For, they cheerfully shared all they have with those who they are better off. And so, they will surely be celebrated and remembered throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations ahead). That is to say, you shouldn't be stingy with whatever you have or with whatever you know. In other words, you are expected to share whatever you have or whatever you know with someone else or others. Now that connotes, generosity gives rise to global and perpetual celebration or remembrance of oneself. Whereas, the reverse is the case with stinginess. Thus, be generous rather than stingy. Because, you yourself and the posterity ahead of you (all future generations) will surely be glad that you did someday. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice:

    Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.

  4. Wuer Kaixi:

    Sometimes remembrance is one of the most humble forms of resistance.

  5. Joseph Nagy:

    The mid-point between summer, in a general sense, and winter is a time traditionally associated with the remembrance of the dead in many cultures.
