How to use inspire in a sentence?

  1. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Listen up, you should help someone else financially in order for him or her to realize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations. Better still, do motivate or inspire someone else, so that he or she can dare to pursue and actualize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations. In other words, you should sponsor at least someone. Because, you can sponsor at least someone right here or out there, in order for him or her to realize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations. Note: helping someone else by any means to realize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations is indirectly and unknowingly helping your own self to realize yours. Thus, endeavour to do just that sooner or later. ~Emeasoba George.
