English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. impose on

    Abuse covers all unreasonable or improper use or treatment by word or act. A tenant does not abuse rented property by "reasonable wear," though that may damage the property and injure its sale; he may abuse it by needless defacement or neglect. It is possible to abuse a man without harming him, as when the criminal vituperates the judge; or to harm a man without abusing him, as when the witness tells the truth about the criminal. Defame, malign, rail at, revile, slander, vilify, and vituperate are used always in a bad sense. One may be justly reproached. To impose on or to victimize one is to injure him by abusing his confidence. To persecute one is to ill-treat him for opinion's sake, commonly for religious belief; to oppress is generally for political or pecuniary motives. "Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy," Deut. xxiv, 14. Misemploy, misuse, and pervert are commonly applied to objects rather than to persons. A dissolute youth misemploys his time, misuses his money and opportunities, harms his associates, perverts his talents, wrongs his parents, ruins himself, abuses every good gift of God.

    abuse, aggrieve, damage, defame, defile, disparage, harm, ill-treat, ill-use, impose upon, injure, malign, maltreat, misemploy, misuse, molest, oppress, persecute, pervert, prostitute, rail at, ravish, reproach, revile, ruin, slander, victimize, vilify, violate, vituperate, wrong

How to use impose on in a sentence?

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Reciprocity means you never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself. It also means you treat others as you would like others to treat yourself. In my view, you should go one step beyond this 'Golden Rule' of Reciprocity, and always treat others as they themselves wish to be treated. And that's the 'Platinum Rule' of Reciprocity in 21st Century!

  2. Confucius, Analects, XV.24:

    Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.

  3. Anthon St Maarten:

    Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.

  4. Richard Bernstein:

    The whole point of the liberal revolution that gave rise to the 1960’s was to free us from somebody else’s dogma, but now the same people…are striving to impose on others a secularized religion…disguising it behind innocuous labels like ‘diversity training’ and ‘respect for difference.

  5. Mark Dubowitz:

    I would expect we would see more, the conventional wisdom out there that we've pretty much exhausted all the sanctions we can impose on Iran is completely false. There are many, many more things that can be done and there are many more actions in Treasury's pipeline. ... We may be at seven on the sanctions dial and maximum pressure requires an 11.
