Famous quotes containing the word importance:

    A man’s personal defects will commonly have with the rest of the world precisely that importance which they have to himself. If he makes light of them, so will other men.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Kitsch is the daily art of our time, as the vase or the hymn was for earlier generations. For the sensibility it has that arbitrariness and importance which works take on when they are no longer noticeable elements of the environment. In America kitsch is Nature. The Rocky Mountains have resembled fake art for a century.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)

    I am not sure that it is of the first importance that you should be happy. Many an unhappy man has been of deep service to himself and to the world.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
