How to use take in in a sentence?

  1. Gerhard Schindler:

    Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said. In Macedonia, where refugees reach before streaming into the former Yugoslavia, the government declared a state of emergency for the next year. Macedonia is considering building a fence on its border like Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic did Hungary, although it is not a long term solution, said Macedonian Foreign Minister Nikola Popovski In Germany, where Chancellor Angela Merkel initially announced the country would take in 800,000 refugees this year, the head of the BND, Gerhard Schindler, said the most immediate danger comes from jihadists who are already in Germany. Related ImageExpand / ContractWith Western Europe closing its doors, thousands of refugees are stranded along the path from Middle East misery. ( FoxNews.com) For the Jihadists, it is much easier to obtain a false or stolen passport and get on the plane. The real danger comes from Western Europe, jihadists returning to Germany and other European countries, once fought on the fronts of the Middle East.

  2. Donald Trump:

    We all have heart and we all want people taken care of, but with the problems our country has, to take in 250,000 -- some of whom are going to have problems, big problems -- is just insane. We have to be insane. Terrible.

  3. Niccolo Machiavelli "The Prince" 1532:

    There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.

  4. Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton:

    A fresh mind keeps the body fresh. Take in the ideas of the day, drain off those of yesterday. As to the morrow, time enough to consider it when it becomes today.

  5. Alan Dranow:

    Enter the doors from the very first Ben Franklin store. According to Alan Dranow, the doors were kept for decades in a warehouse by Gene Ivy, co-owner of the Arkansas-based contractor Ivy Brothers Construction. The company was charged with renovating Walton’s first store in Newport in the 1960s -- and the original doors have been kept in storage since then. Gene Ivy kept the doors in Gene Ivy garage after Gene Ivy retired. When Gene Ivy died in 2014, one of his grandchildren contacted a Walmart Museum employee about what to do with salvaged store relics. The Walmart Museum, which first opened in 1990 as the Walmart Visitor Center, was more than happy to take in the prized store relics this summer. But Alan Dranow admits the doors have seen their share of wear and tear. Because Walton’s store was so popular Sam Walton had more traffic than anybody. The door is worn on the side where you push to get in.
