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.
Best Quotes about Change
What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
Maslow, Abraham H.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
Weep not that the world changes -- did it keep a stable, changeless state, it were cause indeed to weep.
Bryant, William C.
It's the most unhappy people who most fear change.
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.
Change tends to be viewed as a threat to our control.
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.
Things do not change, we do.
Thoreau, Henry David
The longer you stay in one place, the greater your chances of disillusionment.
Changes start occurring when budgets are cut.
The industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
If you want change, you have to make it. If we want progress we have to drive it.
In order to change, we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.
The things that have come into being change continually. The man with a good memory remembers nothing because he forgets nothing.
Bastos, Augusto Roa
Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
I've always believed that it's important to show a new look periodically. Predictability can lead to failure.
Pickens, T. Boone
Just because everything's different doesn't mean anything's changed.
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.
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.
There is nothing permanent except change.
Everybody wants to do something to help, but nobody wants to be the first.
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
Clark, Karen Kaiser
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
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.
When you're finished changing, you're finished.
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.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
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.
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.
Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
You do not notice changes in what is always before you.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
The moment of change is the only poem.
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 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.
I realized the problem was me and nobody could change me except myself.
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.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
You will suddenly realize that the reason you never changed before was because you didn't want to.
Schuller, Robert H.
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.
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.
Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.
Menander of Athens
One change always leaves the way open for the establishment of others.
Everything is changing. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
Constant change is here to stay.
