If I could be granted a wish, I'd shine in your eye like a jewel.
In New York, FEMA granted the Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club's request to be remapped from the high-risk flood zone in August 2012 - just two months before the club was damaged and its outbuildings destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, which stacked up yachts at its docks like pick-up sticks.
There's so much to appreciate about my life every single day, and I make a big point of taking time to smell the roses and noticing how lucky I am. I never want to take that for granted.
Youth is something I never wanna take for granted. I just want to smile and live life.
Tyler, The Creator
How quickly we forget God's great deliverances in our lives. How easily we take for granted the miracles he performed in our past.
I invented my life by taking for granted that everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.
I count my blessings every day, quite honestly, because I take nothing for granted.
Above all, such sports as judo, in my view, teach people to relate to each other. They teach us to respect a partner, teach us to understand that an externally weak partner can not only put up worthy resistance, but, if you relax and take too much for granted, may even win.
Personally, I find it romantic not to be with someone all the time; you don't get used to someone or take them for granted.
Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted... but to weigh and consider.
Kosovo is a small country but it also has a lot of riches that were granted to us by God.
One must know the so-called 'lesson of a downpour.' A man, caught in a sudden rain en route, dashes along the road not to get wet or drenched. Once one takes it for granted that in rain he naturally gets wet, he can be in a tranquil frame of mind even when soaked to the skin. This lesson applies to everything.
You get into your late fifties, people start falling like flies all around you. I don't take life for granted any more. I'm really glad to be here.

Don't get me wrong. I don't take anything for granted. But it seems like the better I play, the more attention I get. And I can't get away from it. You play great, you get attention. But I hate attention. It is weird. I'm in a bind. The more you win, the more they come.
Good habits, which bring our lower passions and appetites under automatic control, leave our natures free to explore the larger experiences of life. Too many of us divide and dissipate our energies in debating actions which should be taken for granted.
Ralph W. Sockman

End-of-the-world stories tend to ring true. I've always been drawn to them, but as I wrote my own, I found surprising pleasure in creating a world that is so radically changed, yet where there's so much meaning and value in every small and ordinary thing we have, and take for granted: hot showers, enough food, friends, routines.
Karen Thompson Walker

I never take anything for granted. I may slip any minute.
Those who are faithful to God are protected and prospered. That comes as the result of serving God and keeping His commandments. But with those blessings comes the temptation to forget their source.

Henry B. Eyring
