How to use posterity in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    I'm not here on earth accidentally or coincidentally. Rather, I'm here (on earth) for a purpose. And until/unless I accomplish outrightly my purpose of being here (on earth). That is, to motivate, inspire, encourage, mentor, educate and to teach the world and posterity ahead via my thought-provoking quotes, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books. Also, eventually to make a remarkable difference globally and to become a solution or an answer to the problems of millions of people globally. That's just the moment I will be proud to say boldly that I have lived a fulfilled life. Oh! yes, in case you don't know. Until and unless you fulfill your purpose of being here (on earth) i.e. your God-given destiny. You've not yet lived a fulfilled life. Regardless of whatever you think you've acquired or achieved over the years. Thus, you've got to discover your God-given destiny by all means and do fulfill it outrightly for your own betterment. And most importantly, for the betterment of the world at large and even for the betterment of the posterity ahead. -Emeasoba George

  2. Joseph Addison:

    Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn.

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. A time machine on the shoulders of memories, two advisers: on the right shoulder there is good future, in the left past that is evil, two open rays of time in which consciousness travels. 2. A halo of knowledge within life, this is a recording of a projection, one who feels reality can feel the universe: the past, present and future, and that which is timeless. 3. The laugh of rage Rap beat: Trumpet music ram there beat street rhythm boo boom bang bang there tudum pub bam pa bang boom boom The laughter of rage and the bloody gloom in a smile in consciousness from an evil joke of reality from the fact that you are not worthy to live like everyone else. The ragged strings of the ever-laughing psyche, like the blinking light of madness where there is insight between light and darkness. The interrupted melody of the harmony of the soul. The silence of insight overcomes the mind, the light is visible, leading to a new dimension of thinking, because everything is visible through the transparent eyelids of the vigilance of fear, and only unconsciousness temporarily closes our eyes from fatigue in the realm of the subconscious. 4. Gangsta music: Car sound Wooo ooo woooo oo drum beat drums pap pap pap Laughing grin of smiling reality from the fact that billions of internal realities of people form a single reality of the hidden chaos of egoism. 5. There is nothing cheaper than sins. 7. Patience gives friends. 8. The trumpet sounds a symphony as a drawn out moan of a soul immersed in laughing horrors of reality, an amazing feeling of weightlessness of madness in the soul, a bright expressive pessimistic gloom in her smile in her laughing psyche. The poison of modern philosophy corrodes the psyche to people like acid. All in straitjackets of conservatism are wary of brilliant exotic thinking that is alien to this world created for posterity. 9. The Venereal thoughts of propaganda will decay for a very long time in the genetic thinking of the mentality. 10. The universe is mined by various bombs of philosophies from different eras. To activate them you need to read books, they act as spells from which a new world will be built for new bombs. 11. Instincts are terrible toys of the subconscious, there is a toy world that is developed at the expense of all lived lives, they call to have fun at the expense of oneself. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  4. Harold J. Seymore:

    Leaders are the ones who keep faith with the past, keep step with the present and keep the promise to posterity.

  5. George Mason:

    All men are created equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights, of which they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity; among which are the enjoyment of life and liberty, with the means of acquiring and possessing property, and pursuing the obtaining of happiness and safety.
