Change quotes

One person can have a profound effect on another. And two people...well, two people can work miracles. They can change a whole town. They can change the world.

- Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

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

- Gilcrest, Peter

Music and dancing (the more the pity) have become so closely associated with ideas of riot and debauchery among the less cultivated classes, that a taste for them, for their own sakes, can hardly be said to exist, and before they can be recommended as innocent or safe amusements, a very great change of ideas must take place.

- Herschel, Sir John

Don't knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while.

- Kin Hubbard

The presence of a noble nature, generous in its wishes, ardent in its charity, changes the lights for us: we begin to see things again in their larger, quieter masses, and to believe that we too can be seen and judged in the wholeness of our character.

- Eliot, George

The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.

- Kierkegaard, S°ren

Getting anything changes it from being desirable to just being taken for granted.


We are not just here to manage capitalism but to change society and to define its finer values.

- Benn, Tony

I never set out to write a book to change women's lives, to change history. It's like,'Who, me?'Yes, me. I did it. And I'm not that different from other women. ... Maybe my power and glory was that I could speak my truth as a woman and it was the truth of every woman.

- Betty Friedan

Non Judgment: In our world where it seems we are taught to judge everything all around and about us and we spend so much of our time doing just that, it might be wise to ask if we can judge anything. To judge anything with any degree of clarity and accuracy we would need all the information past, present and future and how it will affect all concerned to make a perfect judgment. Since no one has that skill, ability or information, you might agree, it may be unwise to judge. This idea may be hard to accept, but when you look back over your life and the judgments you made, ask yourself. How many of your judgments, when you made them, were you perfectly sure they were correct, would you want to change now with the benefit of 20 20 hindsight? Since every judgment is only an opinion based on the limited information at hand, filtered through one's personal value system, it might be safe to assume no two people will judge anything exactly the same. Even concepts of right and wrong, good or bad, good or bad morals and ethics are only opinions, for what may be good in one case may be a disaster in another.

- Sidney Madwed

Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different. Life would undergo a change of appearance because we ourselves had undergone a change in attitude.

- Katherine Mansfield

Don't knock the weather. If it didn't change once in a while, nine out of ten people couldn't start a conversation.

- Kin Hubbard

Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don't believe is right.

- Jane Goodall

Change does not change tradition. It strengthens it. Change is a challenge and an opportunity, not a threat.

- Prince Philip of England

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

The philosophers have already perceived the world in various ways; the point is to change it.

- Karl Marx

EMANCIPATION, n. A bondman's change from the tyranny of another to the despotism of himself. He was a slave: at word he went and came; His iron collar cut him to the bone. Then Liberty erased his owner's name, Tightened the rivets and inscribed his own. G.J.

- Ambrose Bierce

If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.

- Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di

Traveling, you realize that differences are lost: each city takes to resembling all cities, places exchange their form, order, distances, a shapeless dust cloud invades the continents.

- Calvino, Italo

Opinions that are well rooted should grow and change like a healthy tree.
