Best Quotes about Change
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.
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.
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
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!
There has never been a time when you and I have not existed, nor will there be a time when we will cease to exist. As the same person inhabits the body through childhood, youth, and old age, so too at the time of death he attains another body. The wise are not deluded by these changes.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Watts, Alan W.
Life is measured by the rapidity of change, the succession of influences that modify the being.
The search for static security -- in the law and elsewhere -- is misguided. The fact is security can only be achieved through constant change, adapting old ideas that have outlived their usefulness to current facts.
Douglas, William O.
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
A stop sign is a gift for you to learn that moving in the same direction won't take you any place new.
Sikes, Rex Steven
A rolling stone can gather no moss.
If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.
Winners must learn to relish change with the same enthusiasm and energy that we have resisted it in the past.
Peters, Thomas J.
If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree.
There is nothing permanent except change.
There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that ;it is often a comfort to shift one's position, and be bruised in a new place.
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
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.
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.
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.
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
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.
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
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.
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.
If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
Lampedusa, Giuseppe Tomasi Di
Early civilizations complained about still earlier ones, much as we do about both.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
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.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
I've always believed that it's important to show a new look periodically. Predictability can lead to failure.
Pickens, T. Boone
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.
Kennedy, Robert F.
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.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Never swap horses crossing a stream.
Change yourself, change your fortunes.
Change is inevitable-except from a vending machine.
Gallagher, Robert C.
Human beings, by change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Life is made of millions of moments, but we live only one of these moments at a time. As we begin to change this moment, we begin to change our lives.
With me a change of trouble is as good as a vacation.
George, David Lloyd
You can't expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday's tools and expect to be in business tomorrow.
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.
Music can't change the world.
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.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
