English Synonyms and Antonyms
To suppose is temporarily to assume a thing as true, either with the expectation of finding it so or for the purpose of ascertaining what would follow if it were so. To suppose is also to think a thing to be true while aware or conceding that the belief does not rest upon any sure ground, and may not accord with fact; or yet again, to suppose is to imply as true or involved as a necessary inference; as, design supposes the existence of a designer. To conjecture is to put together the nearest available materials for a provisional opinion, always with some expectation of finding the facts to be as conjectured. To imagine is to form a mental image of something as existing, tho its actual existence may be unknown, or even impossible. To think, in this application, is to hold as the result of thought what is admitted not to be matter of exact or certain knowledge; as, I do not know, but I think this to be the fact: a more conclusive statement than would be made by the use of conjecture or suppose. Compare DOUBT; HYPOTHESIS.

I suppose it was in a way.
Adulthood isn't an award they'll give you for being a good child. You can waste... years, trying to get someone to give that respect to you, as though it were a sort of promotion or raise in pay. If only you do enough, if only you are good enough. No. You have to just... take it. Give it to yourself, I suppose. Say, I'm sorry you feel like that and walk away. But that's hard.
I suppose looking back from today, it was a kind of golden age, almost. This was after the war post-50s, 60s. The government had no interest in socially engineering black Americans anywhere. We were pretty much left to our own devices within the boundaries of segregation. So we were limited in that regard, and yet within the community itself, there was an ethos of responsibility and a new possibility in a post-war community. And so the focus was on what we could do for ourselves, and we did many great things. On the street I grew up, a friend down at the end of the block, his name was Melvin Van Peebles — he invented independent filmmaking in America, in the world.
It was all special, i suppose that sounds cliché, but it's true. Every bit of the production, from opening night to the last night of the tour.
Your journey is JUST beginning and the small challenges u face now are just a moment in time, so small and so insignificant. Keep your eyes on the light, move forward with grace, confidence and integrity. Know that you are creating as u so desired long ago and that our paths are exactly where they are suppose to be in this NOW moment." Tamaey Gottuso
