Best Quotes about Change
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Beauvoir, Simone De
Today is not yesterday: we ourselves change; how can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same? Change, indeed is painful; yet ever needful; and if memory have its force and worth, so also has hope.
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.
The word change, so dear to our Europe, has been given a new meaning: it no longer means a new stage of coherent development (as it was understood by Vico, Hegel or Marx), but a shift from one side to another, from front to back, from the back to the left, from the left to the front (as understood by designers dreaming up the fashion for the next season).
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
There is nothing permanent except change.
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.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
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.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
There is nothing exempt from the peril of mutation; the earth, heavens, and whole world is thereunto subject.
Raleigh, Sir Walter
Anything in history or nature that can be described as changing steadily can be seen as heading toward catastrophe.
The things that have come into being change continually. The man with a good memory remembers nothing because he forgets nothing.
Bastos, Augusto Roa
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
The problem is not whether business will survive in competition with business, but whether any business will survive at all in the ;face of social change.
Mcginley, Laurence J.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
Some folks won't look up until they are flat on their backs
Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. If a day goes by that don't change some of your old notions for new ones, that is just about like trying to milk a dead cow.
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.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
A rolling stone can gather no moss.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
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.
The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear keep us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.
If all people are unique, and if they are constantly changing each and every day, then all one can say about any social research finding is that it applied to that group of people on that given day, and given the propensity of humans to be different and to change, then it is unlikely that one would get the same results if one were to repeat the study.
When you're finished changing, you're finished.
Change is not reform, any more than noise is music.
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.
When things come to the worse, they generally mend.
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
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.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
One change always leaves the way open for the establishment of others.
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
Nobody told me how hard and lonely change is.
Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing.
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens
