Best Quotes about Change
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come.
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.
Life may change, but it may fly not; Hope may vanish, but can die not; Truth be veiled, but still it burneth; Love repulsed, -- but it returneth.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
They are the weakest-minded and the hardest-hearted men that most love change.
A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years, but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.
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.
For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity.
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
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
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.
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.
I've continued to recognize the power individuals have to change virtually anything and everything in their lives in an instant. I've learned that the resources we need to turn our dreams into reality are within us, merely waiting for the day when we decide to wake up and claim our birthright.
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).
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.
No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
A woman's mind is cleaner than a man s: She changes it more often.
Never swap horses crossing a stream.
It struck me while I was sitting here; everything changes but the sea.
Davis, William B.
Change yourself, change your fortunes.
It's the most unhappy people who most fear change.
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I se it, is service to a fellow human being.
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
Anything in history or nature that can be described as changing steadily can be seen as heading toward catastrophe.
When it becomes more difficult to suffer than change -- then you will change.
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.
There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
Things do not change, we do.
Thoreau, Henry David
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
Life is measured by the rapidity of change, the succession of influences that modify the being.
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.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
The only people who like change are wet babies.
Constant change is here to stay.
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Any change or reform you make is going to have consequence you don't like.
Change is inevitable-except from a vending machine.
Gallagher, Robert C.
The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.
Drucker, Peter F.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.
Changes start occurring when budgets are cut.
Illness strikes men when they are exposed to change.
For organizations and employees alike, the only real security is the ability to grow, change and adapt.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
It is change; all yields its place and goes.
A rolling stone can gather no moss.
