Illness strikes men when they are exposed to change.
- Herodotus
Change Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Change

1.
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

2.
What we remember can always be changed, what we forget we are always.
Shelton, Richard

3.
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.

4.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
Bennett, Arnold

5.
I've always believed that it's important to show a new look periodically. Predictability can lead to failure.
Pickens, T. Boone

6.
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.
James Gordon

7.
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

8.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
Depree, Max

9.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
Rohn, Jim

10.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Lee, Bruce

11.
Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion. The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust.
Dickens, Charles

12.
The only people who like change are wet babies.

13.
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.
Plutarch

14.
The wind of change is blowing through the continent. Whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a political fact.
Macmillan, Harold

15.
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.
Carlyle, Thomas

16.
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens

17.
Every moment of one's existence one is growing into more or retreating into less. One is always living a little more or dying a little bit.
Mailer, Norman

18.
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.
Martha Beck

19.
The industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
Abernathy

20.
Constant change is here to stay.

21.
There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
Nelson Mandela

22.
There is nothing permanent except change.
Heraclitus

23.
Change is an easy panacea. It takes character to stay in one place and be happy there.
Dunn, Elizabeth C.

24.
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

25.
The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.
Kettering, Charles F.

26.
Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature.
Mohammed

27.
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
Schoeder, Caroline

28.
We don't change what we are, we change what we think what we are.
Butterworth, Eric

29.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.

30.
Don't fear change -- embrace it.
D'Angelo, Anthony J.

31.
America is the civilization of people engaged in transforming themselves. In the past, the stars of the performance were the pioneer and the immigrant. Today, it is youth and the Black.
Rosenberg, Harold

32.
You can't expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday's tools and expect to be in business tomorrow.

33.
All change is not growth; all movement is not forward.
Glasgow, Ellen

34.
For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity.
Cary, Joyce

35.
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.

36.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
Paz, Octavio

37.
Everybody wants to do something to help, but nobody wants to be the first.
Bailey, Pearl

38.
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

39.
Christians are supposed not merely to endure change, nor even to profit by it, but to cause it.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson

40.
All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.
Ovid

41.
A rolling stone can gather no moss.
Syrus, Publilius

42.
Be not the first by which a new thing is tried, or the last to lay the old aside.
Pope, Alexander

43.
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
Maslow, Abraham H.

44.
Change yourself and your work will seem different.
Peale, Norman Vincent

45.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Almanac, Mary S.

46.
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.
Marcinko, Richard

47.
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.
Lynn Hall

48.
People don't change. Only their costumes do.
Moorse, Gene

49.
Grow we must, if we outgrow all that loves us.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

50.
Never swap horses crossing a stream.
Proverb, American
