Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

If you’re in a bad situation, don’t worry it’ll change. If you’re in a good situation, don’t worry it’ll change.

John A. Simone, Sr.

Change comes not from men and women changing their minds, but from the change from one generation to the next.

John Kenneth Galbraith

None of us knows what the next change is going to be, what unexpected opportunity is just around the corner, waiting a few months or a few years to change all the tenor of our lives.

Kathleen Norris

If you want truly to understand something, try to change it.

Kurt Lewin

When it is not necessary to change, it is necessary not to change.

Lucius Gary

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi

Things don’t change, but by and by our wishes change.

Marcel Proust

Loss is nothing else but change, and change is Nature’s delight.

Marcus Aelius Aurelius

If you don’t like the way the world is, you change it. You have an obligation to change it. You just do it one step at a time.

Marian Wright Edelman

We are chameleons, and our partialities and prejudices change place with an easy and blessed facility, and we are soon wonted to the change and happy in it.

Mark Twain

The real sadness of fifty is not that you change so much but that you change so little.

Max Lerner

Bebop was about change, about evolution. It wasn’t about standing still and becoming safe. If anybody wants to keep creating they have to be about change.

All things change, nothing perishes.

Ovid

We must change in order to survive.

Pearl Bailey

I don’t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.

Plutarch

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Reinhold Niebuhr

I have always argued that change becomes stressful and overwhelming only when you’ve lost any sense of the constancy of your life. You need firm ground to stand on. From there, you can deal with that change.

Richard Nelson Bolles

Change is inevitable – except from a vending machine.

Robert C. Gallagher

Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.

Robert F. Kennedy

Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Saint Francis of Assisi

A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject.

Sir Winston Churchill

Everyone hates change because change brings the unknown.

Unknown

There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in travelling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one’s position, and be bruised in a new place.

Washington Irving
