as it were in a quote

"My dad served in the Air Force as ground crew for several years, and doesn't really talk about it. I know that it's there. I think my main thing about direct or indirect experiences as near to home as it were is the idea of self-sacrifice really."

"The pleasures of the imagination are as it were only drawings and models which are played with by poor people who cannot afford the real thing."
