Best Quotes about Change
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come.
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I se it, is service to a fellow human being.
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Though I might travel afar, I will meet only what I carry with me, for every man is a mirror. We see only ourselves reflected in those around us. Their attitudes and actions are only a reflection of our own. The whole world and its condition has its counter parts within us all. Turn the gaze inward. Correct yourself and your world will change.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
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.
If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
The moment of change is the only poem.
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?
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.
Being ready isn't enough; you have to be prepared for a promotion or any other significant change.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
Give wind and tide a chance to change.
Byrd, Richard E.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.
Drucker, Peter F.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
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.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
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
If all people are unique, and if they are constantly changing each and every day, then all one can say about any social research finding is that it applied to that group of people on that given day, and given the propensity of humans to be different and to change, then it is unlikely that one would get the same results if one were to repeat the study.
It is not well to make great changes in old age.
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Watts, Alan W.
If things change then they will be different, but if they don't then things will stay the same.
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.
Kennedy, Robert F.
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.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
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).
The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything or nothing.
Astor, Lady Nancy
To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
We don't change what we are, we change what we think what we are.
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.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
Change yourself, change your fortunes.
This isn't good or bad. It's just the way of things. Nothing stays the same.
Real Live Preacher
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Today the world changes so quickly that in growing up we take leave not just of youth but of the world we were young in. Fear and resentment of what is new is really a lament for the memories of our childhood.
Medawar, Sir Peter
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.

The industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.
