Best Quotes about Change
Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.
King Whitney Jr.
I realized the problem was me and nobody could change me except myself.
Things do not change, we do.
Thoreau, Henry David

Weep not that the world changes -- did it keep a stable, changeless state, it were cause indeed to weep.
Bryant, William C.
No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
Some folks won't look up until they are flat on their backs

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another!
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
The search for static security -- in the law and elsewhere -- is misguided. The fact is security can only be achieved through constant change, adapting old ideas that have outlived their usefulness to current facts.
Douglas, William O.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along.

With me a change of trouble is as good as a vacation.
George, David Lloyd
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
We emphasize that we believe in change because we were born of it, we have lived by it, we prospered and grew great by it. So the ;status quo has never been our god, and we ask no one else to bow down before it.
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
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.
Things don't change, but by and by our wishes change.
What we remember can always be changed, what we forget we are always.
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I se it, is service to a fellow human being.

Man's yesterday may never be like his morrow; Nought may endure but Mutability.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe
All change is not growth; all movement is not forward.
For organizations and employees alike, the only real security is the ability to grow, change and adapt.
Give wind and tide a chance to change.
Byrd, Richard E.
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?
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
We live in an era when rapid change breeds fear, and fear too often congeals us into a rigidity which we mistake for stability.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
We don't change what we are, we change what we think what we are.
