Change

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.
- Baldwin, James
Change Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Change

1.
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.

2.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
Kempis, Thomas

3.
A rolling stone can gather no moss.
Syrus, Publilius

4.
We need to change so we can remain the same.
Serrity, Dorothy

5.
Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.
Confucius

6.
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.

7.
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.
Ward, William A.

8.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
Heraclitus

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
Bennett, Arnold

12.
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.

13.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
Paz, Octavio

14.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.

15.
It is a psychological fact that you can influence your environment and thoughts. If you do so consciously and with high purpose, you can change your habits and attitudes for the better.

16.
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.

17.
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.

18.
Sometimes the answer to prayer is not that it changes life, but that it changes you.
Freeman, James Dillet

19.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Carol Burnett

20.
They are the weakest-minded and the hardest-hearted men that most love change.
Ruskin, John

21.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.

22.
Let us resolve to be masters, not the victims, of our history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to blind suspicions and emotions.
Kennedy, John F.

23.
Peak performers see the ability to manage change as a necessity in fulfilling their missions.
Garfield, Charles A.

24.
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.
Huxley, Elspeth

25.
If you want change, you have to make it. If we want progress we have to drive it.
Susan Rice

26.
Force never moves in a straight line, but always in a curve vast as the universe, and therefore eventually returns whence it issued forth, but upon a higher arc, for the universe has progressed since it started.
Kabbalah

27.
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens

28.
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
Schoeder, Caroline

29.
You can't expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday's tools and expect to be in business tomorrow.

30.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
Brown, Les

31.
The things that have come into being change continually. The man with a good memory remembers nothing because he forgets nothing.
Bastos, Augusto Roa

32.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Watts, Alan W.

33.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Andy Warhol

34.
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Jackson, Jesse

35.
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.

36.
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.
Irving, Washington

37.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
Dean, Jimmy

38.
The customs and fashions of men change like leaves on the bough, some of which go and others come.
Dante Alighieri

39.
It is a dangerous thing to reform anyone.
Wilde, Oscar

40.
Music can't change the world.
Geldof, Bob

41.
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

42.
To change and change for the better are two different things
Proverb, German

43.
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

44.
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.
Crum, Thomas

45.
There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
Nelson Mandela

46.
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

47.
There is nothing permanent except change.
Heraclitus

48.
