Best Quotes about Change
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.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
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.
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.
One of the prevailing sources of misery and crime is in the generally accepted assumption, that because things have been wrong a long time, it is impossible they will ever be right.
Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.
If things change then they will be different, but if they don't then things will stay the same.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
It's the most unhappy people who most fear change.
The only people who like change are wet babies.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
The word change, so dear to our Europe, has been given a new meaning: it no longer means a new stage of coherent development (as it was understood by Vico, Hegel or Marx), but a shift from one side to another, from front to back, from the back to the left, from the left to the front (as understood by designers dreaming up the fashion for the next season).
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.
Ward, William A.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
To change and change for the better are two different things
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.
You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.
There is no new thing under the sun. [Ecclesiastes 1:9]
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.
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.
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
Peak performers see the ability to manage change as a necessity in fulfilling their missions.
Garfield, Charles A.
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
Sometimes the answer to prayer is not that it changes life, but that it changes you.
Freeman, James Dillet
When things come to the worse, they generally mend.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
For organizations and employees alike, the only real security is the ability to grow, change and adapt.
Man's yesterday may never be like his morrow; Nought may endure but Mutability.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
The most serious charge that can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
Strong character is brought out by change, weak ones by permanence.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
Change alone is unchanging.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.
Nothing in the world is permanent, and we're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.
W. Somerset Maugham
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.
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.
Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.
People do no change with the times, they change the times.
What we remember can always be changed, what we forget we are always.
Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. If a day goes by that don't change some of your old notions for new ones, that is just about like trying to milk a dead cow.
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 cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
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.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
A Course In Miracles
Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
