    get across, made some principles.

    I have made some principles to be honest in one's life. I hope soon it will get across the people all over the world.


    Do you think these sentences are correct as to grammar and semantics?

    Please help me.

    Re: get across, made some principles.

    No.

    #1 You start the sentence with I, you finish the sentence with I.

    #2 "some principles" is plural; "to be honest" is not.

    #3 What does "it" relate to?

    #4 "get across" = antagonise

    Re: get across, made some principles.

    Thank you Anglika.

    Well, I am writing again :

    I have made a principle of my own to be honest in my life. I will try to get the principle across the general public all over the world.

    By this sentence, I meant that I have made a principle of my own which tells me how to be honest in my life. I will try to bring and make believe the principle among the general public all over the world.

    Please help me.

    Re: get across, made some principles.

    Yes, that's much better. The only change I would suggest is a colon after "my own": "A principle of my own: to be..."


    I will try to bring and make believe the principle among the general public all over the world.


    "make believe" = a collocation meaning pretend/imagine

    I will try to persuade everyone to follow this principle says what you are trying to express in these sentence.
