Best Quotes about Change
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
It struck me while I was sitting here; everything changes but the sea.
Davis, William B.
Some folks won't look up until they are flat on their backs
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
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).
The need for change bulldozed road down the center of my mind.
All change is not growth; all movement is not forward.
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.
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.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.
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.
A living thing is distinguished from a dead thing by the multiplicity of the changes at any moment taking place in it.
We must all obey the great law of change. It is the most powerful law of nature.
There are two kinds of fools: One says, This is old therefore it is good. The other one says, This is new therefore it is better.
Inge, Dean William R.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
You can't expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday's tools and expect to be in business tomorrow.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
People don't change. Only their costumes do.
Change is an easy panacea. It takes character to stay in one place and be happy there.
Dunn, Elizabeth C.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
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
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
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.
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.
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von
What we remember can always be changed, what we forget we are always.
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.
Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.
When things come to the worse, they generally mend.
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.
Constant change is here to stay.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature.
If things change then they will be different, but if they don't then things will stay the same.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The moment of change is the only poem.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing.
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
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
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
Peak performers see the ability to manage change as a necessity in fulfilling their missions.
Garfield, Charles A.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
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.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another!
