You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
To act and act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait and wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the rising and falling tides (of affairs), so that with nature and law at his back, and truth and beneficence as his beacon light, he may accomplish wonders. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other. Man thus becomes the victim of the tides when he should be their Master.
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.

When things come to the worse, they generally mend.
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
A stop sign is a gift for you to learn that moving in the same direction won't take you any place new.
Sikes, Rex Steven

Astor, Lady Nancy
It's only the view from where you sit that makes you feel defeat. Life is full of many aisles, so why don't you change your seat?
For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity.

Change alone is unchanging.
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens
You can't expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday's tools and expect to be in business tomorrow.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.
It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.
Ward, William A.
It seemed that each time we would become proficient at a given task there would be a change made for no apparent reason. It sometimes appeared that changes were made simply because sufficient time had elapsed since the last change. And then our efforts would begin again from the beginning.
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Drucker, Peter F.
Nothing in the world is permanent, and we're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.
W. Somerset Maugham
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
The primary and most beautiful of Nature's qualities is motion, which agitates her at all times, but this motion is simply a perpetual consequence of crimes, she conserves it by means of crimes only.
Sade, Marquis De
Change is not reform, any more than noise is music.
If all people are unique, and if they are constantly changing each and every day, then all one can say about any social research finding is that it applied to that group of people on that given day, and given the propensity of humans to be different and to change, then it is unlikely that one would get the same results if one were to repeat the study.
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von
Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion. The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust.
In human life there is constant change of fortune; and it is unreasonable to expect an exemption from the common fate. Life itself decays, and all things are daily changing.
Give wind and tide a chance to change.
Byrd, Richard E.
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis.

Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
