Imposing Quotations

Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern.
Alfred North Whitehead

However strong, however imposing a ship may appear, it is not 'disgraced' because it flies before the tempest. A commander ought always to remember that a man's life is worth more than the mere satisfaction of his own pride. In any case, to be obstinate is blameable, and to be wilful is dangerous.
Jules Verne

I liked Germany; I'm not into Berlin, it's too huge and empty and imposing, but Munich was good.
Graham Coxon

There are different ways that kids who are gay take on the rejection and alienation they feel. The way I dealt with it was to say, 'You know what? You're imposing judgments on me and condemnations, but I don't accept them. I'm going to instead turn the light on you and see what your flaws are and impose the same judgmental standards on you.'
Glenn Greenwald

By imposing too great a responsibility, or rather, all responsibility, on yourself, you crush yourself.
Franz Kafka
