Best Quotes about Change
It is the greatest mistake to think that man is always one and the same. A man is never the same for long. He is continually changing. He seldom remains the same even for half an hour.
Let us resolve to be masters, not the victims, of our history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to blind suspicions and emotions.
Kennedy, John F.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Change is not made without inconvenience, even from worse to better.
Strong character is brought out by change, weak ones by permanence.
All change is not growth; all movement is not forward.
To make a change often takes a lot of initial energy and effort. This is not unlike a rocket that expends most of its energy in the first few miles even though its destination may be hundreds of thousands of miles away.
The industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.
Change tends to be viewed as a threat to our control.
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.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
The only practice that's now constant is the practice of constantly accommodating to change.
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
Only man is not content to leave things as they are but must always be changing them, and when he has done so, is seldom satisfied with the result.
Be not the first by which a new thing is tried, or the last to lay the old aside.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Almanac, Mary S.
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.
The true past departs not, no truth or goodness realized by man ever dies, or can die; but all is still here, and, recognized or not, lives and works through endless change.
As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.
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
Don't change horses while crossing a stream.
It struck me while I was sitting here; everything changes but the sea.
Davis, William B.
When it becomes more difficult to suffer than change -- then you will change.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
This isn't good or bad. It's just the way of things. Nothing stays the same.
Real Live Preacher
There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that ;it is often a comfort to shift one's position, and be bruised in a new place.
Every moment of one's existence one is growing into more or retreating into less. One is always living a little more or dying a little bit.
You can't expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday's tools and expect to be in business tomorrow.
Any change or reform you make is going to have consequence you don't like.
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.
Ward, William A.
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
There is nothing exempt from the peril of mutation; the earth, heavens, and whole world is thereunto subject.
Raleigh, Sir Walter
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be. This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our every man must take on a science fictional way of thinking.
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.
Kennedy, Robert F.
Weep not that the world changes -- did it keep a stable, changeless state, it were cause indeed to weep.
Bryant, William C.
When you're finished changing, you're finished.
The word change, so dear to our Europe, has been given a new meaning: it no longer means a new stage of coherent development (as it was understood by Vico, Hegel or Marx), but a shift from one side to another, from front to back, from the back to the left, from the left to the front (as understood by designers dreaming up the fashion for the next season).

If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von
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?
A rut is a grave with no ends.
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens
Things don't change, but by and by our wishes change.
