How to use lest in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    How and where you begin in life doesn't really matter. Yes! rather the bottom line is how and where you will eventually end up. For, surely there is an end to every human and matter. And guess what? The end of every human or matter is better off than the beginning there off (Ecclesiastes 7:8). Now, that's why I'm more concerned with what my end will be. And you too ought to be more concerned with what your end would be rather than your beginning. Lest you forget, it is the end that justifies the means and I strongly do believe in that in toto. -Emeasoba George

  2. Epictetus:

    Control thy passions, lest they take vengeance on thee.

  3. President Obama:

    Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ, in our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ. ...So this is not unique to one group or one religion.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Successful persons don't dream about success, but work with full Focus and strong Determination to make Success happen. Lest we forget, only place where Success comes before Work is the Dictionary.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Some people bear startling resemblance with lovely Lotus flowers that grow in the mud, and yet rise above the murkier waters as astoundingly beautiful flowers. The mud of adversities, challenges and obstacles doesn't stop their growth, but offers the nourishment and strength to rise above the dirt. I often think that it must be the strong desire, tenacity and perseverance of Lotus flower that makes her so unique in rising above and beyond the normal limitations. Lest we forget, not everything that grows in the mud turns into an elegant Lotus flower. In my view we must strive to develop the same mental strength, perseverance and passion within - so as to grow above the mud of compelling circumstances, hate, hardships, social rejections, and discriminations that we often encounter in the real world. Only then we'll be able to transform into eloquent Lotus flowers, gently opening our soft and supple petals one by one, to make our world most beautiful.
