Best Quotes about Change
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
It is the greatest mistake to think that man is always one and the same. A man is never the same for long. He is continually changing. He seldom remains the same even for half an hour.
The changes in our life must come from the impossibility to live otherwise than according to the demands of our conscience not from our mental resolution to try a new form of life.
Tolstoy, Count Leo
Turbulence is life force. It is opportunity. Let's love turbulence and use it for change.
Of the events of life we may have some control. but over the law of its progress none.
Draper, John W.
Change is not made without inconvenience, even from worse to better.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
Constant change is here to stay.
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.
To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
There is such a thing as a general revolution which changes the taste of men as it changes the fortunes of the world.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Being ready isn't enough; you have to be prepared for a promotion or any other significant change.
There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that ;it is often a comfort to shift one's position, and be bruised in a new place.
What we remember can always be changed, what we forget we are always.
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.
Music can't change the world.
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.
A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years, but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
If a man like Malcolm X could change and repudiate racism, if I myself and other former Muslims can change, if young whites can change, then there is hope for America.
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
Clark, Karen Kaiser
You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Almanac, Mary S.
For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent.
One person's constant is another person's variable.
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be. This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our every man must take on a science fictional way of thinking.
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
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.
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!
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.
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.
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
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
To become different from what we are, we must have some awareness of what we are.
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.
If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.
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
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.
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
If you want change, you have to make it. If we want progress we have to drive it.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
A Course In Miracles
Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis.
The things that have come into being change continually. The man with a good memory remembers nothing because he forgets nothing.
Bastos, Augusto Roa
Changes start occurring when budgets are cut.
There is nothing permanent except change.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
We don't change what we are, we change what we think what we are.
