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.
Best Quotes about Change
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Watts, Alan W.
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.
Change hurts. It makes people insecure, confused, and angry. People want things to be the same as they've always been, because that makes life easier. But, if you're a leader, you can't let your people hang on to the past.
Change can either challenge or threaten us. Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
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.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.

Sikes, Rex Steven

Life is measured by the rapidity of change, the succession of influences that modify the being.

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
Don't change horses while crossing a stream.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
There is nothing permanent except change.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
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.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
It is not well to make great changes in old age.
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
This is your time and it feels normal to you, but really, there is no normal. There's only change and resistance to it and then more change.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.
Drucker, Peter F.
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.
In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change.
ThÝch Nhat Hanh
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.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
If you want change, you have to make it. If we want progress we have to drive it.
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.
Change yourself and your work will seem different.
Peale, Norman Vincent
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
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.
When things come to the worse, they generally mend.
There is nothing exempt from the peril of mutation; the earth, heavens, and whole world is thereunto subject.
Raleigh, Sir Walter
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
Being willing to change allows you to move from a point of view to a viewing point -- a higher, more expansive place, from which you can see both sides.
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.
Kennedy, Robert F.
It is a psychological fact that you can influence your environment and thoughts. If you do so consciously and with high purpose, you can change your habits and attitudes for the better.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
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.

Davis, William B.
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
