Best Quotes about Change
When things come to the worse, they generally mend.
To make a change often takes a lot of initial energy and effort. This is not unlike a rocket that expends most of its energy in the first few miles even though its destination may be hundreds of thousands of miles away.
It is a dangerous thing to reform anyone.
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
We are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.
Bryson, Lyman L.
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.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.

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 industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
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
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
Change alone is unchanging.
Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.

Holmes, Oliver Wendell

Today is not yesterday: we ourselves change; how can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same? Change, indeed is painful; yet ever needful; and if memory have its force and worth, so also has hope.
The moment of change is the only poem.
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.
The way of the creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the great harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.
There is nothing permanent except change.
There is nothing exempt from the peril of mutation; the earth, heavens, and whole world is thereunto subject.
Raleigh, Sir Walter

It struck me while I was sitting here; everything changes but the sea.
Davis, William B.
