Important

Famous quotes containing the word important:

    Although pretend play is important, it is still the means to an end, not the end itself. Do not make the mistake of thinking a contrived, pretend drama can substitute for real interpersonal comfort in dealing with important emotional issues.
    Stanley I. Greenspan (20th century)

    Unfortunately there is still a cultural stereotype that it’s all right for girls to be affectionate but that once boys reach six or seven, they no longer need so much hugging and kissing. What this does is dissuade boys from expressing their natural feelings of tenderness and affection. It is important that we act affectionately with our sons as well as our daughters.
    Stephanie Martson (20th century)

    It was not important that they survive.
    What mattered was that they should bear
    Some lineament or character,
    Some affluence, if only half-perceived,
    In the poverty of their words,
    Of the planet of which they were part.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
