The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.
They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.
Things alter for the worse spontaneously, if they be not altered for the better designedly.
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.
We emphasize that we believe in change because we were born of it, we have lived by it, we prospered and grew great by it. So the status quo has never been our god, and we ask no one else to bow down before it.
Carl T. Rowan
We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing.
R. D. Laing
What we call progress is the exchange of one nuisance for another nuisance.
When you are through changing, you are through.
When you jump for joy, beware that no one moves the ground from beneath your feet.
Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer.
Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.
