What was taken by force, can only be restored by force.
Gamal Abdel Nasser
But, you know, it's still a drag to get your picture taken when you're eating a sandwich. It's a downer.
A newspaper is a public trust, and we will suffer as a society without them. It is not the Internet that has killed them. It is their own greed, it is their own stupidity, and it is capitalism that has taken our daily newspapers from us.
It seemed like whenever I got a bona fide offer from Ferrari, I couldn't do it. And vice versa - when I was ready, their seats were taken. We always had a relationship, but what's important is that I pretty much started my F1 career with them and ended it there, too.
The immense cities lie basking on the beaches of the continent like whales that have taken to the land.
Arnold J. Toynbee
If I could do anything over, I'd have spent more time with my first set of children. I would have taken more quality time with them, for sure.
In America, we have always taken it as an article of faith that we 'battle' cancer; we attack it with knives, we poison it with chemotherapy or we blast it with radiation. If we are fortunate, we 'beat' the cancer. If not, we are posthumously praised for having 'succumbed after a long battle.'
Certainly political capital-slash-celebrity attention, whatever you want to call it, certainly is part of the reason why I've been reaching out to CEOs. There's a lot of folks who probably would have taken a call from me before but are even more inclined now and are interested in what we're doing because of all the attention.
The digital world has been in a separate orbit from our medical cocoon, and it's time the boundaries be taken down.
I've taken Saturdays to be the day I pull back completely. I do things that are more creative, and I've actually found that helps me when I get back into work to be more thoughtful, and I truly believe that feeding your creative soul is really important to being more analytical.
I know I do not exaggerate, unconsciously and unintentionally, the scantiness of my resources and the difficulty of my life... I know that, but for the mercy of God, I might easily have been, for any care that was taken of me, a little robber or a vagabond.
A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do. Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.
There is this tremendous body of knowledge in the world of academia where extraordinary numbers of incredibly thoughtful people have taken the time to examine on a really profound level the way we live our lives and who we are and where we've been. That brilliant learning sometimes gets trapped in academia and never sees the light of day.
Whenever you have taken up work in hand, you must see it to the finish. That is the ultimate secret of success. Never, never, never give up!
In Europe first and now in America, elected men have taken it upon themselves to indebt their people to create an atmosphere of dependency. And why? For their own selfish need to increase their own personal power.
A studio is like a meditation room where music is created. And a live performance is the place where the creation of the studio is taken ahead. I love both.
The principle of plural marriage was revealed to the Mormons amid much secrecy. Dark clouds hovered over the church in the early 1840s, after rumors spread that its founder, Joseph Smith, had taken up the practice of polygamy. While denying the charge in public, by 1843 Smith had shared a revelation with his closest disciples.
Countries such as the U.S. and Britain have taken it upon themselves to decide for us in the developing world, even to interfere in our domestic affairs and to bring about what they call regime change.
I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
I have never taken any exercise, except sleeping and resting, and I never intend to take any.
Being taken for granted can be a compliment. It means that you've become a comfortable, trusted element in another person's life.
Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him.
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.
It's never too late. Don't focus on what was taken away. Find something to replace it, and acknowledge the blessing you have.
Our scientific age demands that we provide definitions, measurements, and statistics in order to be taken seriously. Yet most of the important things in life cannot be precisely defined or measured. Can we define or measure love, beauty, friendship, or decency, for example?
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci

One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.
