How to use besides in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    King Solomon was a wise king and teacher too. Moreover, Plato was a wonderful teacher and inspirator. As well, Socrates was also an awesome teacher and inspirator. Zig Ziglar was equally a profound teacher and motivator. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate is undoubtedly an inspiring teacher and motivator. Enoch Adeboye is an insightful teacher and preacher. Besides, David Oyedepo is a charismatic teacher and preacher among other teachers and inspirators like John C. Maxwell, Martin Luter King Jnr., Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, Chinua Achebe, Oprah Winfrey, Henry Ford, Nelson Mandela, Wole Soyinka, Chris Oyakhilome, Dr. Uma Ukpai, Paul Enenche, David Ogbueli, Matthew Ashimolowo, David Abioye etc. But above all, Jesus Christ was the greatest teacher and inspirator. And he will ever remain the greatest teacher and inspirator of all time. Because, he was the embodiment of divine wisdom, he is still the embodiment of divine wisdom and he will ever remain the embodiment of divine or extraordinary wisdom. Oh! yes, Jesus Christ is as well the epitome of divine wisdom. If you don't concur with me. Go ahead and read the scriptures (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). For, you will surely and eventually concur with me QED. -Emeasoba George

  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Mistakes are for you and never against you. Yes! because, most life's lessons are not learnt until after mistakes. Besides, a collection of mistakes is what gives rise to experience and experience is the key to success. Moreover, those who don't make mistakes and those who fail to learn from mistakes are often naive (they do lack experience, wisdom, knowledge and sound judgement) Thus, never take your own mistakes and other people's mistakes for granted including expensive mistakes. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Darius Lakdawalla:

    It’s a very simple concept that exists in every other sector of the economy besides health care.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    Selflessness (unselfishness) is defined as being concerned more with the needs and wishes of others than with one's own. Moreover, it can be defined as having or showing great concern for other people and little or no concern at all for yourself or oneself. Whereas, selfishness is directly opposite of that (selflessness). Now, are you selfless or are you selfish? Anyway, you should be selfless rather than selfish. Because, true love or true leadership is all about being selfless. Contrariwise, untrue love or untrue leadership has to do with selfishness. Besides, whoever that is selfless is true to form (or type) i.e. he or she is being or behaving as expected. But, anyone who is selfish is factitious (not genuine). Nevertheless, do quote me right or better still you can say I said so. ~Emeasoba George

  5. Jo Seong-jin:

    There were many people around besides those I was on this business trip with, and Samsung workers were looking on right next to us, they would not have stood by had I deliberately damaged a washing machine.
