Best Quotes about Change
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.
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.
Use a gyroscope to demonstrate how, over time, we become fixed in our ways, personalities, and, as a mature person, psychologically resistant to change. With EFFORT, however, we can make changes. We are not today exactly what we were yesterday. We are almost imperceptibly different. We do change with time and we can control to an extent the direction of the changes.
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
People don't change. Only their costumes do.
All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.
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.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.
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
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.
There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
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 inevitable. Change for the better is a full-time job.
Stevenson, Adlai E.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von
The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.
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.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
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.
Music can't change the world.
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
For organizations and employees alike, the only real security is the ability to grow, change and adapt.
Change is not reform, any more than noise is music.
You can't expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday's tools and expect to be in business tomorrow.
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 don't change, but by and by our wishes change.
Everybody wants to do something to help, but nobody wants to be the first.
What we remember can always be changed, what we forget we are always.
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.
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
If things change then they will be different, but if they don't then things will stay the same.
They must change who would be constant in happiness and wisdom.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
Just because everything's different doesn't mean anything's changed.
A rut is a grave with no ends.
Changes start occurring when budgets are cut.
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!
With me a change of trouble is as good as a vacation.
George, David Lloyd
Of the events of life we may have some control. but over the law of its progress none.
Draper, John W.
There is no new thing under the sun. [Ecclesiastes 1:9]
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.
If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
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.
