Begging, Quote, Disconsolate, and Impetus in Sentences
When I ran into the begging man, who was asking everyone for money, I had low expectations for the encounter. To my surprise, the man, Henry, was quite intelligent and was even able to quote a number of famous historical speeches. He went even further and gave the true speakers their credit by mentioning their names. Henry was not disconsolate, as one would expect a person in his situation to be; he was the opposite, quite cheerful. Henry inspired me to appreciate what I had in life, and my meeting with him was the impetus that caused me to become a more grateful person.
