Examples of sentimental in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Winners are not extraordinary persons. Rather, they are people who do allow themselves to be guided by principle. Now that is to say, Losers are those who refuse to be driven by principle. And anyone who is not driven by principle is being driven by sentiment. Oh! yes, there is no two ways about that. Therefore, you've got to be principled rather than sentimental. For, even decisions taken based on sentiment is never impactful. In other words, any impactful and successful decision is a product of principle. Moreover, that implies clearly it truly pays to be principled rather than to be sentimental. So come on, be principled and never sentimental. -Emeasoba George
