How to use imposing in a sentence?

  1. Anthon St Maarten:

    Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience.

  2. Alfred North Whitehead:

  4. Ayanna Pressley:

    Theyve been to the White House. They talk to people like me, quietly, saying they wish the radical freshmen who get all the magazine covers andall the ink and airtime. Rashida Tlaib and Omar along with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., -- have frequently made front page news since joining Congress in January for their controversial statements and policies, as well as for their vocal criticism of the Trump administration. House Democrats set out an ambitious agenda with legislation on the kitchen table priorities that helped them win the majority protecting the Affordable Care Act, imposing new ethics rules while engaging in aggressive oversight of the Trump administration. Their investigations extend well beyond Special Counsel Robert Muellers probeinto Russian interference in the 2016 election as they dig into the presidents business dealings andpush for Trumps tax returns. But with the spotlight comes high-profile setbacks. Democrats splintered over Ocasio-Cortezs climate change proposal and exposed party divisions over Omars comments on Israels treatment of Palestinians. Tlaib stunned some when, on Day One, she told supporters using an expletive that the new majority would impeach Donald Trump. CLICK HERE FOR THE FOX NEWS APP Conway said Sunday that the invitation is open to any House Democrats who wants to come to the White House to discuss divisive issues like immigration and border security. Lets try to work together. But we have an unserious Congress that is not coming to the table. And the Republicans failed to do their job when they were in charge, no doubt. And House Democrats now are failing to come together in the House.

  5. Barack Obama:
