Best Quotes about Change
We are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.
Bryson, Lyman L.
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
Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
A rut is a grave with no ends.
There are two kinds of fools: One says, This is old therefore it is good. The other one says, This is new therefore it is better.
Inge, Dean William R.
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Human beings, by change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
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.
One change always leaves the way open for the establishment of others.
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.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Peak performers see the ability to manage change as a necessity in fulfilling their missions.
Garfield, Charles A.
I've always believed that it's important to show a new look periodically. Predictability can lead to failure.
Pickens, T. Boone
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens
Nothing that I can do will change the structure of the universe. But maybe, by raising my voice I can help the greatest of all causes -- goodwill among men and peace on earth.
There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
Change alone is unchanging.
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.
Change yourself and your work will seem different.
Peale, Norman Vincent
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.
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.
It's the most unhappy people who most fear change.
The most serious charge that can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
Just because everything's different doesn't mean anything's changed.
Be not the first by which a new thing is tried, or the last to lay the old aside.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
Winners must learn to relish change with the same enthusiasm and energy that we have resisted it in the past.
Peters, Thomas J.
People who wait for changes to occur on the outside before they commit to making changes on the inside will never make any changes at all.
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
Maslow, Abraham H.
The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear keep us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.
Things do not change, we do.
Thoreau, Henry David
Life is measured by the rapidity of change, the succession of influences that modify the being.
All change is not growth; all movement is not forward.
Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life.
Otto, Herbert A.
There is nothing permanent except change.
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.
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 can either challenge or threaten us. Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.

Mcginley, Laurence J.
Things don't change, but by and by our wishes change.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
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.
