1 I have sent for you on an affair of importance.
2 At Brighton she will be of less importance even as a common flirt than she has been here.
3 One day's delay, she observed, would be of small importance; and her mother was too happy to be quite so obstinate as usual.
4 Mrs. Bennet, all amazement, though flattered by having a guest of such high importance, received her with the utmost politeness.
5 But their father, though very laconic in his expressions of pleasure, was really glad to see them; he had felt their importance in the family circle.
6 Through letters, whatever of good or bad was to be told would be communicated, and every succeeding day was expected to bring some news of importance.
7 Our importance, our respectability in the world must be affected by the wild volatility, the assurance and disdain of all restraint which mark Lydia's character.
8 And I do not think it of light importance that he should have attentive and conciliatory manners towards everybody, especially towards those to whom he owes his preferment.

12 It was an union that must have been to the advantage of both; by her ease and liveliness, his mind might have been softened, his manners improved; and from his judgement, information, and knowledge of the world, she must have received benefit of greater importance.
13 It had not been very great; he had lost every point; but when Mrs. Phillips began to express her concern thereupon, he assured her with much earnest gravity that it was not of the least importance, that he considered the money as a mere trifle, and begged that she would not make herself uneasy.
14 Had Elizabeth been able to encounter his eye, she might have seen how well the expression of heartfelt delight, diffused over his face, became him; but, though she could not look, she could listen, and he told her of feelings, which, in proving of what importance she was to him, made his affection every moment more valuable.
15 It had given him a disgust to his business, and to his residence in a small market town; and, in quitting them both, he had removed with his family to a house about a mile from Meryton, denominated from that period Lucas Lodge, where he could think with pleasure of his own importance, and, unshackled by business, occupy himself solely in being civil to all the world.
