Best Quotes about Change
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).
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.
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
Most of us will do anything to become good except change our way of living.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
Some folks won't look up until they are flat on their backs

Bryant, William C.
They must change who would be constant in happiness and wisdom.
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.
Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.
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
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.
Turbulence is life force. It is opportunity. Let's love turbulence and use it for change.
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.

Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
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.
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.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
Perfection is immutable. But for things imperfect, change is the way to perfect them.
With me a change of trouble is as good as a vacation.
George, David Lloyd
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.
Kennedy, Robert F.
Thus all things are doomed to change for the worse and retrograde.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Amiel, Henri Frederic
