Best Quotes about Change
Change is not reform, any more than noise is music.
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.
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.
A rolling stone can gather no moss.
It struck me while I was sitting here; everything changes but the sea.
Davis, William B.
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.
People do no change with the times, they change the times.
For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent.
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
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.
The primary and most beautiful of Nature's qualities is motion, which agitates her at all times, but this motion is simply a perpetual consequence of crimes, she conserves it by means of crimes only.
Sade, Marquis De
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
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.
The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything or nothing.
Astor, Lady Nancy
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
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.
They must change who would be constant in happiness and wisdom.
In order to change, we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.
This isn't good or bad. It's just the way of things. Nothing stays the same.
Real Live Preacher
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von
We are shifting from a managerial society to an entrepreneurial society.
There is nothing exempt from the peril of mutation; the earth, heavens, and whole world is thereunto subject.
Raleigh, Sir Walter
In human life there is constant change of fortune; and it is unreasonable to expect an exemption from the common fate. Life itself decays, and all things are daily changing.
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
Things don't change, but by and by our wishes change.
Though I might travel afar, I will meet only what I carry with me, for every man is a mirror. We see only ourselves reflected in those around us. Their attitudes and actions are only a reflection of our own. The whole world and its condition has its counter parts within us all. Turn the gaze inward. Correct yourself and your world will change.
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.
Grow we must, if we outgrow all that loves us.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
Clark, Karen Kaiser
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.
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.
Illness strikes men when they are exposed to change.
The most serious charge that can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
Change can either challenge or threaten us. Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.
It's only the view from where you sit that makes you feel defeat. Life is full of many aisles, so why don't you change your seat?
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
Nothing that I can do will change the structure of the universe. But maybe, by raising my voice I can help the greatest of all causes -- goodwill among men and peace on earth.
Everything changes but change.
Just because everything's different doesn't mean anything's changed.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.
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.
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.
Change is not only likely, it's inevitable.
