Men have taken advantage of that for hundreds and probably thousands of years." - Peter Buffett

"Out of hundreds of deals that I've done, hundreds, on four occasions I've taken advantage of the laws of this country, like other people.

When I use it, they say, "Trump, Trump, Trump."" - Donald Trump

"White privilege allows a certain kind of leisure that can be deployed by white people of advantage toward our restoration. That's all true and good. But it also suggests that there is an individual approach to the issues that many of these white people have taken up as a recognition of their tie to and responsibility for some of the inequities that exist. And I don't think it has to be an either-or. I think it has to be a bifocal approach." - Michael Eric Dyson

Intuition, suspicion, or confidence in new ventures; there is a strange strain within me when advantage is not taken of some situation, the immediacy of recognition of the rightness or wrongness of a mood, a response, a decision - they are so often valid that I am increasingly convinced that we have yet to grasp the reality of existence." - Ansel Adams

"Quite low down in the list is "How much am I going to be paid?"... my main feeling about money is that I don`t want to feel as though I`m being taken advantage of...

And we were taken advantage of, and we were put in a certain place that we had never been put in before." - Kate Hudson

"The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them. It is said that leaders are readers.

It is easier to stay out than get out." - Mark Twain

"All these soft kinds [of stone] have the advantage that they can be easily worked as soon as they have been taken from the quarries.

"'Greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends' (Jn. 15:13).

Or if someone is taken advantage of and he bears it, without retaliation at all, then he is giving his life for his neighbor." - Poemen

"Sadly, too many corporate leaders still believe that the way to boost productivity and profits is to continually reduce salaries, benefits, and training expenditures, a strategy that can be taken only so far.

"I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me." - Winston Churchill

"A ground frequently taken by Christian theologians is that the progress and civilization of the world are due to Christianity; and the discussion is complicated by the fact that many eminent servants of humanity have been nominal Christians, of one or other of the sects. My allegation will be that the special services rendered to human progress by these exceptional men have not been in consequence of their adhesion to Christianity, but in spite of it, and that the specific points of advantage to human kind have been in ratio of their direct opposition to precise Biblical enactments." - Charles Bradlaugh
