How to use stinginess in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    You will surely or eventually be remembered for any of these after your demise. You will surely or eventually be remembered either for love or hatred, peace or conflict, encouragement or discouragement, stinginess or generosity, kindness or cruelty. Now, it's up to you to decide any of the above instances which you will like to be remembered for after your demise. Anyway, as for me I will surely and eventually be remembered and celebrated globally as a great man, writer, motivator and inspirer who shared all his God-given words of wisdom, insights, motivations and inspirations with the world. Yes of course, even the posterity ahead will surely and eventually remember me and celebrate me too as a great man, writer, motivator and inspirer.

  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    When a stingy person dies, his or her stinginess dies with him or her. I mean, he or she is never celebrated or remembered for years after his or her demise (he or she is easily forgotten) because of his or her stinginess. But contrariwise, when a generous person dies, his or her legacy of generosity lives on. That is to say, he or she is celebrated and remembered perpetually, even though he or she has gone out of the world. For instance, Mother Theresa of India has gone as a person, but her legacy of generosity lives on, Andrew Carnegie Of U.S.A has also gone as a person but, his legacy of generosity lives on. As well, Bill Gates of U.S.A being a mortal will surely die someday but, he will ever be remembered and celebrated globally for his generosity among other famous and uncommon givers like John D. Rockefeller Snr., Warren Buffett, George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg, Pat Robertson, RVM, Aliko Dangote, Sir Emeka Offor, Ifeanyi Ubah, Rochas Okorocha etc. In other words, it is better off to be generous than to be stingy. Thus, don't be stingy with whatever you have or whatever you know including your God-given insights, inspirations, wisdom, knowledge or stuffs like that. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Emeasoba George:

    The most burning question. What will you be remembered for after your demise? Will you be remembered for good or bad, peace or war, stinginess or generosity?

  4. 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

  5. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Every issue or matter has an option or rather you do have an option. Yes! you heard me right. You can choose either life or death, hard work or laziness, success or failure, riches or poverty, excellence or mediocrity, grace or disgrace, forgiveness or unforgivingness, righteousness or unrighteousness, covetousness or contentedness, morality or immorality, patience or impatience, fame or obscurity, peace or war, wisdom or foolishness, strength or weakness, knowledge or ignorance, understanding or misunderstanding, respect or disrespect, literacy or illiteracy, kindness or unkindness, unity or disunity, hopefulness or hopelessness, construction or destruction, salvation or damnation, encouragement or discouragement, greatness or commonness, fastness or dullness, hell or heaven, light or darkness, God or Satan, increase or decrease, appreciation or depreciation, gratitude or ingratitude, humility or pride, loyalty or disloyalty, gentleness or ungentleness, love or hatred, faithfulness or unfaithfulness, generosity or stinginess, fidelity or infidelity, honesty or dishonesty, courage or cowardice, happiness or unhappiness, compassion or cruelty, Godliness or ungodliness, justice or injustice. However, all of the above illustrations evidently shows that, you have the willpower to choose either the positive or the negative aspect of every issue or matter in life. As well, the world is in your oyster. That is to say, you are in a position to choose or enjoy a broad range of opportunities or options. But, I urge you as usual. Dare to choose the positive aspect of everything rather than the negative aspect of it. Even if/when you are in dilemma. ~Emeasoba George
