Juxtaposition Quotations

Stuart Hall was an utterly unique figure. Although he arrived at the age of 19 from Jamaica and spent the rest of his life here, he never felt at home in Britain. This juxtaposition was a crucial source of his strength and originality. Because of his colour and origin, he saw the country differently - not as a native, but as an outsider.
Martin Jacques

Words are not pebbles in alien juxtaposition.

Rachel Joyce

Cities are about juxtaposition.
Richard Rogers

This juxtaposition of great beauty and grace with a backdrop of pure evil stayed with me for years.
Walter Dean Myers
