Change

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
Change Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Change

1.
A woman's mind is cleaner than a man s: She changes it more often.
Herford, Oliver

2.
Change is inevitable-except from a vending machine.
Gallagher, Robert C.

3.
When things come to the worse, they generally mend.
Moodie, Susanna

4.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Virgil

5.
Being ready isn't enough; you have to be prepared for a promotion or any other significant change.
Riley, Pat

6.
Life may change, but it may fly not; Hope may vanish, but can die not; Truth be veiled, but still it burneth; Love repulsed, -- but it returneth.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe

7.
Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion. The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust.
Dickens, Charles

8.
The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear keep us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.
Macarthur, Douglas

9.
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.
Robbins, Anthony

10.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
Bacon, Francis

11.
We emphasize that we believe in change because we were born of it, we have lived by it, we prospered and grew great by it. So the ;status quo has never been our god, and we ask no one else to bow down before it.
Rowan, Carl

12.
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.

13.
Turbulence is life force. It is opportunity. Let's love turbulence and use it for change.
Ramsay Clark

14.
The fish only knows that it lives in the water, after it is already on the river bank. Without our awareness of another world out there, it would never occur to us to change.

15.
The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come.
Dante Alighieri

16.
You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change.
Brown, Les

17.
Change alone is unchanging.
Heraclitus

18.
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.

19.
If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di

20.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Bellin, Gita

21.
This is your time and it feels normal to you, but really, there is no normal. There's only change and resistance to it and then more change.
Meryl Streep

22.
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

23.
Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.
Confucius

24.
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

25.
We are shifting from a managerial society to an entrepreneurial society.
Naisbitt, John

26.
Every moment of one's existence one is growing into more or retreating into less. One is always living a little more or dying a little bit.
Mailer, Norman

27.
It is not well to make great changes in old age.
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon

28.
For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent.
Robbins, Anthony

29.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
Socrates

30.
There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
Nelson Mandela

31.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
Depree, Max

32.
A rolling stone can gather no moss.
Syrus, Publilius

33.
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.
I Ching

34.
Be not the first by which a new thing is tried, or the last to lay the old aside.
Pope, Alexander

35.
If you want change, you have to make it. If we want progress we have to drive it.
Susan Rice

36.
All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.
Ovid

37.
One person's constant is another person's variable.
Gerhart, Susan

38.
It is change; all yields its place and goes.
Euripides

39.
Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature.
Mohammed

40.
The true past departs not, no truth or goodness realized by man ever dies, or can die; but all is still here, and, recognized or not, lives and works through endless change.
Carlyle, Thomas

41.
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

42.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

43.
Change is an easy panacea. It takes character to stay in one place and be happy there.
Dunn, Elizabeth C.

44.
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Jackson, Jesse

45.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
Kempis, Thomas

46.
It's the most unhappy people who most fear change.
McLaughlin, Mignon

47.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Andy Warhol

48.
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

49.
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.

50.
There is no new thing under the sun. [Ecclesiastes 1:9]
Bible
