If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
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.
To become different from what we are, we must have some awareness of what we are.
They are the weakest-minded and the hardest-hearted men that most love change.
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.

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
Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing.
Change is not reform, any more than noise is music.
Life is made of millions of moments, but we live only one of these moments at a time. As we begin to change this moment, we begin to change our lives.
Such is the state of life, that none are happy but by the anticipation of change: the change itself is nothing; when we have made it, the next wish is to change again. The world is not yet exhausted; let me see something tomorrow which I never saw before.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Watts, Alan W.
The need for change bulldozed road down the center of my mind.
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.
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
Man's yesterday may never be like his morrow; Nought may endure but Mutability.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe

Christians are supposed not merely to endure change, nor even to profit by it, but to cause it.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Things do not change, we do.
Thoreau, Henry David
For organizations and employees alike, the only real security is the ability to grow, change and adapt.
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.
One person's constant is another person's variable.
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.
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis
