Meryl Streep

10.
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).
Kundera, Milan

11.
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.

Dean, Jimmy

13.

W. Somerset Maugham

14.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Lee, Bruce

15.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.

16.
Give wind and tide a chance to change.
Byrd, Richard E.

17.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
Branden, Nathaniel

18.

Abernathy

22.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
Gilbertson, Joan

23.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Carol Burnett

24.
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I se it, is service to a fellow human being.
Walesa, Lech

25.
A stop sign is a gift for you to learn that moving in the same direction won't take you any place new.
Sikes, Rex Steven

26.
We live in an era when rapid change breeds fear, and fear too often congeals us into a rigidity which we mistake for stability.
White, Lynn

27.
Everything changes but change.
Zangwill, Israel

28.

Sallust

A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.
Klee, Paul

33.
The changes in our life must come from the impossibility to live otherwise than according to the demands of our conscience not from our mental resolution to try a new form of life.
Tolstoy, Count Leo

34.
Such is the state of life, that none are happy but by the anticipation of change: the change itself is nothing; when we have made it, the next wish is to change again. The world is not yet exhausted; let me see something tomorrow which I never saw before.
Johnson, Samuel

35.
We don't change what we are, we change what we think what we are.
Butterworth, Eric

36.
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

37.
The moment of change is the only poem.
Rich, Adrienne

38.

Guthrie, Woody

50.
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
Buddha
