Best Quotes about Change
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.
Ward, William A.
The only people who like change are wet babies.
Change is not made without inconvenience, even from worse to better.
Change can either challenge or threaten us. Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.
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
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.
It is a dangerous thing to reform anyone.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Beauvoir, Simone De
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Change alone is unchanging.
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.
Turbulence is life force. It is opportunity. Let's love turbulence and use it for change.
People do no change with the times, they change the times.
Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
Change tends to be viewed as a threat to our control.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
Grow we must, if we outgrow all that loves us.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature.
Everything changes but change.
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.
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.
They are the weakest-minded and the hardest-hearted men that most love change.
If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
The true past departs not, no truth or goodness realized by man ever dies, or can die; but all is still here, and, recognized or not, lives and works through endless change.
The wind of change is blowing through the continent. Whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a political fact.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
Don't fear change -- embrace it.
D'Angelo, Anthony J.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
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 are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.
Bryson, Lyman L.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Watts, Alan W.
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.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
A Course In Miracles
You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis
I do not believe you can do today's job with yesterday's methods and be in business tomorrow.
There has never been a time when you and I have not existed, nor will there be a time when we will cease to exist. As the same person inhabits the body through childhood, youth, and old age, so too at the time of death he attains another body. The wise are not deluded by these changes.
Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life.
Otto, Herbert A.
Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.
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.
Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.
King Whitney Jr.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.
Most of us are about as eager to be changed as we were to be born, and go through our changes in a similar state of shock.
It is change; all yields its place and goes.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
People can cry much easier than they can change.
