What does "never take anything for granite" mean??

Question:i think i know what it means but im not exactly sure..
can someone explain it to me?

Answers:
"Granted"

It means appreciate all that you have now because you never know when you will lose it.

"Granite"

This means never trade anything for a peice or granite stone because that **** is dirt cheap.
I think the saying goes "never take anything for granted" meaning you should never expect or under appreciate things.
Never take anything for GRANTED, it means dont always expect things to go your way.
The saying is 'never take anything for granted.' It means just what it says.
it means that you should never not be grateful for the things that you have. Be grateful for a computer, it could be gone, your family? your friends? your bed?
The saying is "never take anything for 'granted'". It simply means appreciate what you have.
It means don't ever just forget about something and not care about it. No matter how small something is you should be thankful for it and not take it for granted.
First, it's not granite (that's a type of rock), it is granted.

Generally it is used to say, don't just assume that is the way it (things) will be. Do some digging and make sure that everything is in place the way you expect it will be and everyone is following through and doing their part.
I believe that the expression is, "Never take anything for granted". Meaning never assume anything.
To assume is, if you break the word down, to make an ***/U/ME (*** of you and me). ;>)
its granted not granite, granite is some kind of floor


taking something for granted means like ur never appericative of anything, not thankful, etc...
Lil..i liked the previous answer...
Do not take for "granted" means "do not think it was given you for free", since there is a price for everything, one way or another.
That means that whatever you got from destiny, life, people, should be greatly appreciated and thanked for.
It's actually one of the 100 most mispronounced words in the English language. It really is take for granted not granite, although thats what it sounds like.

take for granted,
a. to accept without question or objection; assume: Your loyalty to the cause is taken for granted.
b. to use, accept, or treat in a careless or indifferent manner: A marriage can be headed for trouble if either spouse begins to take the other for granted.
dont take it cause its really heavy.
Never take anything for GRANTED means don't assume things will always be there. Learn to appreciate what you have.
Granted, not granite... "Never take anything for granted" means that you should always appreciate everything because you'll miss it once it is gone... Cherish the time you have on this earth and with people and places and things because things change quickly, people die, you don't want to look back and regret not doing something or not spending time with someone while you had the chance. So next time your family wants you to spend a night at home with them don't fight it, because for all you know it could be the last time... Appreciate everything, don't overlook anything...
