People do no change with the times, they change the times.
We are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.
Bryson, Lyman L.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von
The need for change bulldozed road down the center of my mind.
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.
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.
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).
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.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
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
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.
Give wind and tide a chance to change.
Byrd, Richard E.

Draper, John W.
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.

Krutch, Joseph Wood
The industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I se it, is service to a fellow human being.
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
We live in an era when rapid change breeds fear, and fear too often congeals us into a rigidity which we mistake for stability.
Everything changes but change.
Every moment of one's existence one is growing into more or retreating into less. One is always living a little more or dying a little bit.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Beauvoir, Simone De
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.
A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.
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
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.
We don't change what we are, we change what we think what we are.
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
The moment of change is the only poem.
All change is not growth; all movement is not forward.
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.
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.
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.
Force never moves in a straight line, but always in a curve vast as the universe, and therefore eventually returns whence it issued forth, but upon a higher arc, for the universe has progressed since it started.

Anything in history or nature that can be described as changing steadily can be seen as heading toward catastrophe.
Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
Sometimes the answer to prayer is not that it changes life, but that it changes you.
Freeman, James Dillet
This isn't good or bad. It's just the way of things. Nothing stays the same.
Real Live Preacher
Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. If a day goes by that don't change some of your old notions for new ones, that is just about like trying to milk a dead cow.
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
