Take Quotes

We hope you find inspiration in these Take Quotes from our large collection of quotes.

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

Pay It Forward.
Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A bowl of soup served with love
is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is the price of success.

dance you want for today -
perhaps a gentle loving dance.
