Taken - Quotes

We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creatures through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.

Henry Beston

Lee Iacocca

If an idea is not taken up and used as a solution to a problem it has no value. It becomes a non-idea. Lying in a drawer it is useless. Worse than useless, it’s a complete waste of space. Ideas have to be applied before they are recognized as good ideas. Even a bad idea executed Is better than a good idea undone. The longer it is used the better the idea is considered to be. That is why the wheel is reckoned to be the best idea ever.

Paul Arden

There is only one day left, always starting over: It is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.

Jean-Paul Sartre

Sometimes, instead of going down the road less taken, you just charge right down the beaten path.

Charlaine Harris

If the failure of proof of nonexistence is taken as proof of existence, then we must conclude that all exist.

Isaac Asimov

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms-to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

Viktor E. Frankl

Desiring another person is perhaps the most risky endeavor of all. As soon as you want somebody - really want him - it is as though you have taken a surgical needle and sutured your happiness to the skin of that person, so that any separation will now cause you a lacerating injury.

Elizabeth Gilbert

Love is warmth and love is caring.
Love is kind and love is sharing.
Love is given and love is taken.
Real true love cannot be shaken.

Ruth Y. Nott

Death doesn`t just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.
