Motivational Quotes

Change

Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thin was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.
- Robbins, Anthony
Change Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Change

1.
As the blessings of health and fortune have a beginning, so they must also find an end. Everything rises but to fall, and increases but to decay.
Sallust

2.
The most serious charge that can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.
Krutch, Joseph Wood

3.
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

4.
People can cry much easier than they can change.
Baldwin, James

5.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
Rohn, Jim

6.
To change and change for the better are two different things
Proverb, German

7.
Christians are supposed not merely to endure change, nor even to profit by it, but to cause it.
Fosdick, Harry Emerson

8.
It's the most unhappy people who most fear change.
McLaughlin, Mignon

9.
No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal.
Ferguson, Marilyn

10.
Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.
Confucius

11.
The more things change, the more they remain... insane.
Michael Fry and T. Lewis

12.
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.
Johnson, Samuel

13.
When you're finished changing, you're finished.
Franklin, Benjamin

14.
Anything in history or nature that can be described as changing steadily can be seen as heading toward catastrophe.
Sontag, Susan

15.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Carol Burnett

16.
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

17.
The way of the creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the great harmony: this is what furthers and what perseveres.
I Ching

18.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Watts, Alan W.

19.
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.
Zambucka, Kirsten

20.
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.
Huxley, Elspeth

21.
Force never moves in a straight line, but always in a curve vast as the universe, and therefore eventually returns whence it issued forth, but upon a higher arc, for the universe has progressed since it started.
Kabbalah

22.
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

23.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them -- that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Lao-Tzu

24.
Don't change horses while crossing a stream.
Proverb, American

25.
In pain is a new time born.
Chamisso, Adelbert Von

26.
They are the weakest-minded and the hardest-hearted men that most love change.
Ruskin, John

27.
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.

28.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Lee, Bruce

29.
Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
Buscaglia, Leo

30.
Wisdom lies neither in fixity nor in change, but in the dialectic between the two.
Paz, Octavio

31.
Change yourself, change your fortunes.
Proverb, Portuguese

32.
Believe, if thou wilt, that mountains change their place, but believe not that man changes his nature.
Mohammed

33.
Sometimes the answer to prayer is not that it changes life, but that it changes you.
Freeman, James Dillet

34.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.
Braude, Jacob M.

35.
It is a psychological fact that you can influence your environment and thoughts. If you do so consciously and with high purpose, you can change your habits and attitudes for the better.

36.
It is a dangerous thing to reform anyone.
Wilde, Oscar

37.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
A Course In Miracles

38.
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.
Macarthur, Douglas

39.
Any change or reform you make is going to have consequence you don't like.
Udall, Mo

40.
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
Maslow, Abraham H.

41.
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

42.
People do no change with the times, they change the times.
Shaw, P.K.

43.
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.

44.
Most of us are about as eager to be changed as we were to be born, and go through our changes in a similar state of shock.
Baldwin, James

45.
Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life.
Otto, Herbert A.

46.
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.

47.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.

48.
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.

49.
Change is inevitable. Change for the better is a full-time job.
Stevenson, Adlai E.

50.
They must change who would be constant in happiness and wisdom.
Confucius
