Motivational Quotes

Change

Change hurts. It makes people insecure, confused, and angry. People want things to be the same as they've always been, because that makes life easier. But, if you're a leader, you can't let your people hang on to the past.
- Marcinko, Richard
Change Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Change

1.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Lee, Bruce

2.
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.

3.
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
Gilbertson, Joan

4.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
Brown, Les

5.
It's only the view from where you sit that makes you feel defeat. Life is full of many aisles, so why don't you change your seat?

6.
It seemed that each time we would become proficient at a given task there would be a change made for no apparent reason. It sometimes appeared that changes were made simply because sufficient time had elapsed since the last change. And then our efforts would begin again from the beginning.
Adalphos, General

7.
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.
Johnson, Samuel

8.
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.
Huxley, Elspeth

9.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.

10.
Change is not reform, any more than noise is music.

11.
America is the civilization of people engaged in transforming themselves. In the past, the stars of the performance were the pioneer and the immigrant. Today, it is youth and the Black.
Rosenberg, Harold

12.
It is the greatest mistake to think that man is always one and the same. A man is never the same for long. He is continually changing. He seldom remains the same even for half an hour.
Gurdjieff, George

13.
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Einstein, Albert

14.
Be not the first by which a new thing is tried, or the last to lay the old aside.
Pope, Alexander

15.
Music can't change the world.
Geldof, Bob

16.
Change is an easy panacea. It takes character to stay in one place and be happy there.
Dunn, Elizabeth C.

17.
To act and act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait and wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the rising and falling tides (of affairs), so that with nature and law at his back, and truth and beneficence as his beacon light, he may accomplish wonders. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other. Man thus becomes the victim of the tides when he should be their Master.
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova

18.
Change is inevitable. Change for the better is a full-time job.
Stevenson, Adlai E.

19.
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau

20.
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.
Lao-Tzu

21.
The primary and most beautiful of Nature's qualities is motion, which agitates her at all times, but this motion is simply a perpetual consequence of crimes, she conserves it by means of crimes only.
Sade, Marquis De

22.
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.
Einstein, Albert

23.
Give wind and tide a chance to change.
Byrd, Richard E.

24.
Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
Christina Baldwin

25.
The wind of change is blowing through the continent. Whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a political fact.
Macmillan, Harold

26.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis

27.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
Waitley, Denis

28.
Never swap horses crossing a stream.
Proverb, American

29.
Change happens in the boiler room of our emotions... so find out how to light their fires.
Dewar, Jeff

30.
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.
Kennedy, Robert F.

31.
Just because everything's different doesn't mean anything's changed.
Porter, Irene

32.
Change yourself, change your fortunes.
Proverb, Portuguese

33.
Change tends to be viewed as a threat to our control.

34.
Things do not change, we do.
Thoreau, Henry David

35.
A rut is a grave with no ends.
Lampkin, Alan

36.
If things change then they will be different, but if they don't then things will stay the same.
Gilcrest, Peter

37.
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.
Ferguson, Marilyn

38.
In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change.
ThÝch Nhat Hanh

39.
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.

40.
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.

Rohn, Jim

That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along.
Alther, Lisa

43.
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

44.
Peak performers see the ability to manage change as a necessity in fulfilling their missions.
Garfield, Charles A.

45.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Almanac, Mary S.

46.
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be. This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our every man must take on a science fictional way of thinking.
Asimov, Isaac

47.
Being ready isn't enough; you have to be prepared for a promotion or any other significant change.
Riley, Pat

Buddha
