    how insignificant

    How can I understand the follwoing underlined phrase ?

    How insignificant this touching( between potential lovers) looks, yet how important it is.

    Imaginative and resourcceful in their variety, these touching games are basic to human courting.

    Re: how insignificant

    1 Touching among potential may seem insignicant, but it is very important. presumably, they touch each other in little ways, rtather than more direct ways, which brings us onto the second part, where it says that people find many different ways for some form of contact.
