Best Quotes about Change
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.
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).
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.
The way of the creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the great harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.
Life is made of millions of moments, but we live only one of these moments at a time. As we begin to change this moment, we begin to change our lives.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.
Braude, Jacob M.
Any change or reform you make is going to have consequence you don't like.
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.
Today is not yesterday: we ourselves change; how can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same? Change, indeed is painful; yet ever needful; and if memory have its force and worth, so also has hope.
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
Clark, Karen Kaiser
There has never been a time when you and I have not existed, nor will there be a time when we will cease to exist. As the same person inhabits the body through childhood, youth, and old age, so too at the time of death he attains another body. The wise are not deluded by these changes.
Be not the first by which a new thing is tried, or the last to lay the old aside.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them -- that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
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.
We live in an era when rapid change breeds fear, and fear too often congeals us into a rigidity which we mistake for stability.
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
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis
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.
Change is inevitable. Change for the better is a full-time job.
Stevenson, Adlai E.
Strong character is brought out by change, weak ones by permanence.
Most of us are about as eager to be changed as we were to be born, and go through our changes in a similar state of shock.
One person's constant is another person's variable.
I do not believe you can do today's job with yesterday's methods and be in business tomorrow.
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Life may change, but it may fly not; Hope may vanish, but can die not; Truth be veiled, but still it burneth; Love repulsed, -- but it returneth.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe
A rut is a grave with no ends.
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.
Christians are supposed not merely to endure change, nor even to profit by it, but to cause it.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
We need to change so we can remain the same.
The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.
Drucker, Peter F.
America is the civilization of people engaged in transforming themselves. In the past, the stars of the performance were the pioneer and the immigrant. Today, it is youth and the Black.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
In order to change, we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
A living thing is distinguished from a dead thing by the multiplicity of the changes at any moment taking place in it.
People do no change with the times, they change the times.
Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.
Illness strikes men when they are exposed to change.
Peak performers see the ability to manage change as a necessity in fulfilling their missions.
Garfield, Charles A.
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.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.
Just because everything's different doesn't mean anything's changed.
One of the prevailing sources of misery and crime is in the generally accepted assumption, that because things have been wrong a long time, it is impossible they will ever be right.
Change is inevitable-except from a vending machine.
Gallagher, Robert C.
Human beings, by change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
