Best Quotes about Change
It struck me while I was sitting here; everything changes but the sea.
Davis, William B.
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.
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.
A living thing is distinguished from a dead thing by the multiplicity of the changes at any moment taking place in it.
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
The industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.
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.
Just because everything's different doesn't mean anything's changed.
When you're finished changing, you're finished.
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
We are shifting from a managerial society to an entrepreneurial society.
If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.
The need for change bulldozed road down the center of my mind.
Change starts when someone sees the next step.
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.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything or nothing.
Astor, Lady Nancy
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
It is a dangerous thing to reform anyone.
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
Never swap horses crossing a stream.
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.
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.
This is your time and it feels normal to you, but really, there is no normal. There's only change and resistance to it and then more change.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
Turbulence is life force. It is opportunity. Let's love turbulence and use it for change.
It is not well to make great changes in old age.
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
Winners must learn to relish change with the same enthusiasm and energy that we have resisted it in the past.
Peters, Thomas J.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.
I've continued to recognize the power individuals have to change virtually anything and everything in their lives in an instant. I've learned that the resources we need to turn our dreams into reality are within us, merely waiting for the day when we decide to wake up and claim our birthright.
To change and change for the better are two different things
Changes start occurring when budgets are cut.
Some folks won't look up until they are flat on their backs
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.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
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.
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.
If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
Change can either challenge or threaten us. Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.
There is nothing permanent except change.
Man's yesterday may never be like his morrow; Nought may endure but Mutability.
Shelley, Percy Bysshe
We are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.
Bryson, Lyman L.
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
Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature.
