How to use posterity in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    I do aspire to inspire the world and the posterity ahead because my lifetime will surely and eventually expire someday. Thus, you too should aspire to inspire the world as well. For, whether you like it or not your lifetime on earth will surely and eventually elapse or expire someday. Oh! yes, every living thing and every human was born to live here (on earth) just for a while. And then, die someday or eventually and never to live forever (mark you). -Emeasoba George

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Those who have acquired or accumulated wealth, riches, knowledge, wisdom or stuffs like that for only themselves or their families are not worthy of global and perpetual celebration or remembrance. And they will never be celebrated and remembered globally or perpetually. Yes! because, their accumulated or acquired riches, wealth, knowledge, wisdom or stuffs like that will surely die with them. Consequently, they will be forgotten so soon after their demise. On the other hand, those who have succeeded in enriching someone else or others with their God-given money, wealth, riches, knowledge, wisdom or stuffs like that are worthy of global and perpetual celebration or remembrance. For, they cheerfully shared all they have with those who they are better off. And so, they will surely be celebrated and remembered throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations ahead). That is to say, you shouldn't be stingy with whatever you have or with whatever you know. In other words, you are expected to share whatever you have or whatever you know with someone else or others. Now that connotes, generosity gives rise to global and perpetual celebration or remembrance of oneself. Whereas, the reverse is the case with stinginess. Thus, be generous rather than stingy. Because, you yourself and the posterity ahead of you (all future generations) will surely be glad that you did someday. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Groucho Marx:

    Why should I do anything for posterity? What has posterity ever done for me?

  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. Emeasoba George:

    Live happily, give cheerfully, as well receive all things thankfully or gratefully. For, if you dare to live happily, give cheerfully and resolve to receive all things thankfully. Believe you me, longevity will be your portion, prosperity will run after you. And above all, you will be remembered and celebrated eventually. Even by the posterity (all future generations). -Emeasoba George
