Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
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.

I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.

A Course In Miracles

It is change; all yields its place and goes.
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.
Change yourself and your work will seem different.
Peale, Norman Vincent

Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits.

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.
People do no change with the times, they change the times.
