Examples of take an interest in a Sentence

  1. Antonio Gramsci:

    In the life of children there are two very clear-cut phases, before and after puberty. Before puberty the child's personality has not yet formed and it is easier to guide its life and make it acquire specific habits of order, discipline, and work after puberty the personality develops impetuously and all extraneous intervention becomes odious, tyrannical, insufferable. Now it so happens that parents feel the responsibility towards their children precisely during this second period, when it is too late then of course the stick and violence enter the scene and yield very few results indeed. Why not instead take an interest in the child during the first period

  2. Emily Harding:

    There's definitely a spike in activity around elections — they do take an interest in down-ballot races — but the activity is sustained, it never really stopped, and we should not be linking our attention or efforts to the election cycle, because they're not.

  3. Smithsonian Channel:

So more or less, he went along with it. He didn’t really like Elizabeth that much. Because Elizabeth would tell him to his face if she thought he was doing something wrong… I guess he was also hoping I would take an interest in someone else. But in the end, he went along with it because he needed to see how the immigration process worked.

  4. Hero David Flink '':

    He got to know me, and eventually we started playing chess, there was nothing that said he had to take an interest in my life, and he did anyhow. And that saved me.

  5. John Jay Chapman:

    The men and woman who make the best boon companions seem to have given up hope of doing something else...some defect of talent or opportunity has cut them off from their pet ambition and has thus left them with leisure to take an interest in their lives of others. Your ambition may be, it makes him keep his thoughts at home. But the heartbroken people -- if I may use the word in a mild, benevolent sense -- the people whose wills are subdued to fate, give us consolation, recognition, and welcome.
