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.
Best Quotes about Change
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
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.
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.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.
Braude, Jacob M.
Things do not change, we do.
Thoreau, Henry David
You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
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.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
If a man like Malcolm X could change and repudiate racism, if I myself and other former Muslims can change, if young whites can change, then there is hope for America.
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Illness strikes men when they are exposed to change.
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.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
If all people are unique, and if they are constantly changing each and every day, then all one can say about any social research finding is that it applied to that group of people on that given day, and given the propensity of humans to be different and to change, then it is unlikely that one would get the same results if one were to repeat the study.
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis
Let us resolve to be masters, not the victims, of our history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to blind suspicions and emotions.
Kennedy, John F.
Change yourself and your work will seem different.
Peale, Norman Vincent
All change is not growth; all movement is not forward.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
Anything in history or nature that can be described as changing steadily can be seen as heading toward catastrophe.
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.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
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.
Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
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.
There is such a thing as a general revolution which changes the taste of men as it changes the fortunes of the world.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
The search for static security -- in the law and elsewhere -- is misguided. The fact is security can only be achieved through constant change, adapting old ideas that have outlived their usefulness to current facts.
Douglas, William O.
Strong character is brought out by change, weak ones by permanence.
Winners must learn to relish change with the same enthusiasm and energy that we have resisted it in the past.
Peters, Thomas J.
People don't change. Only their costumes do.
If you want change, you have to make it. If we want progress we have to drive it.
Human beings, by change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
When you make a career change there has to be some kind of connection. I remember a Beverly Hills attorney who wanted to become a potato farmer in Oregon. Well, there's a guy who's born to lose.
Change can either challenge or threaten us. Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
Christians are supposed not merely to endure change, nor even to profit by it, but to cause it.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
Maslow, Abraham H.
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.
I do not believe you can do today's job with yesterday's methods and be in business tomorrow.
A rut is a grave with no ends.
To change and change for the better are two different things
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
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.
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.
