Oxford has some examples there:imbibe:
Absorb or assimilate (ideas or knowledge):if one does not imbibe the culture one cannot succeed
I wonder whether the word is used properly in the following sentence:
He should have imbibed fresh air from masterpieces before writing his own.
"Imbibe" usually means drink alcohol.
I think the author should have imbibed some conventional metaphors before mixing his own.
