Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thin was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.
Best Quotes about Change
The need for change bulldozed road down the center of my mind.
Change is not only likely, it's inevitable.
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.
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.
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
Maslow, Abraham H.
Today the world changes so quickly that in growing up we take leave not just of youth but of the world we were young in. Fear and resentment of what is new is really a lament for the memories of our childhood.
Medawar, Sir Peter
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.
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.
To change and change for the better are two different things
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.
Weep not that the world changes -- did it keep a stable, changeless state, it were cause indeed to weep.
Bryant, William C.
Some folks won't look up until they are flat on their backs

Music can't change the world.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
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.
We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
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.
Anything in history or nature that can be described as changing steadily can be seen as heading toward catastrophe.
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.
We are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.
Bryson, Lyman L.
With me a change of trouble is as good as a vacation.
George, David Lloyd
Everybody wants to do something to help, but nobody wants to be the first.
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.
Ward, William A.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Life is made of millions of moments, but we live only one of these moments at a time. As we begin to change this moment, we begin to change our lives.
The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.
Kettering, Charles F.
Use a gyroscope to demonstrate how, over time, we become fixed in our ways, personalities, and, as a mature person, psychologically resistant to change. With EFFORT, however, we can make changes. We are not today exactly what we were yesterday. We are almost imperceptibly different. We do change with time and we can control to an extent the direction of the changes.
Of the events of life we may have some control. but over the law of its progress none.
Draper, John W.
Being willing to change allows you to move from a point of view to a viewing point -- a higher, more expansive place, from which you can see both sides.
Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.
Grow we must, if we outgrow all that loves us.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing.
For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent.
Man's yesterday may never be like his morrow; Nought may endure but Mutability.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
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.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.
When you're finished changing, you're finished.

There is nothing permanent except change.
This isn't good or bad. It's just the way of things. Nothing stays the same.
Real Live Preacher
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another!

So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
