Famous quotes containing the word important:

    People who have had power, when they become powerless, are really tragic.... We just allow ourselves to be conditioned by a society so we become as important as we’re supposed to be.
    Maggie Kuhn (b. 1905)

    I love this child. Red-haired—patient and gentle like her mother—fey and funny like her father. When she giggles I can hear him when he and I were young. I am part of this child. It may be only because we share genes and that therefore smell familiar to each other. . . . It may be that a part of me lives in her in some important way. . . . But for now, it’s jelly beans and “Old MacDonald” that unite us.
    Robert Fulghum (20th century)

    I believe that I am letting my kids see that a man can be tender, sensitive, warm, attentive to feelings, and present, just plain there. That’s important to me, because I didn’t get any of that from my own father, and I am realizing now how much I missed it.
