How to use ingenuity in a sentence?

  1. Valerie Jamieson:

    I really don't think it is ever going to happen, then again, one thing I've learned is never to underestimate the ingenuity of physicists, so never say never.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    If someone has stolen your idea or taken undue credit for your work, don't let it upset you. Learn from that experience and move on as swiftly as you can. Life is too short to dwell in the past, and fall in the trap of self-pity and misery. In my experience, those who steal the credit and ideas of others shamelessly, often don't realize that they are actually increasing their bad "Karma" by their wrongdoings, and that bad Karma quickly catches up with them in no time. Be assured! Time takes care in sweet and mysterious ways - always! Never forget that nobody will ever be able to steal or take away your creativity, ingenuity, and inventive mind, even though they may have stolen your one idea at one time only. Your divine spark of intelligence will continue to illuminate the world, even after losing that one idea - because surely there's plenty more where that came from!

  3. George Goehl:

    The amount of ingenuity and creativity it takes to survive being poor and to figure out how, you know, if you're a domestic worker, how you're going to take three buses to get to work on time and get your kid to school and figure out how to get back... that is a lot of work i do think a new narratives around around poverty and poor people would help.

  4. Steve Daines:

    We are at a pivotal time in our great nations history, we have shown the world time and time again the genius of American ingenuity and the grit of American determination. However, a radical, socialist, far-left movement is growing across this country. And it has taken root as the new voice of the Democratic Party.

  5. Sindiswa Matyobeni:
