By Wallace Stevens
... all big changes in human history have been arrived at slowly and through many compromises.

By Eleanor Roosevelt
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.

Any change or reform you make is going to have consequence you don't like.

By Mo Udall
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.

By Arthur Schopenhauer
Change and growth take place when a person has risked himself and dares to become involved with experimenting with his own life.

By Herbert A. Otto
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.

By Charles Dickens
Change can either challenge or threaten us. Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.

By Marsha Sinetar
Change happens in the boiler room of our emotions... so find out how to light their fires.

By Elizabeth C. Dunn
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.

By I Ching
Change is healthy and useful. It has to be fought for most of the time. It's not inevitable. It takes real leadership and real effort. But I think it's really important not to take yourself too seriously. Dwight Eisenhower used to have a rule that you should always take your job seriously but not yourself.

By Newt Gingrich
Let that which stood in front go behind, let that which was behind advance to the front, let bigots, fools, unclean persons, offer new propositions, let the old propositions be postponed.

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

By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

By Charles Dickens
Never swap horses crossing a stream.

By Proverb
No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just... come out the other side. Or you don't.

Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.

By Socrates
Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.

By Charles Dickens
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.

By Henri Frederic Amiel
Status quo, you know, that is Latin for the mess we're in.

By Ronald Reagan
That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along.

By Lisa Alther
The art of progress is to preserve order amid change, and to preserve change amid order. Life refuses to be embalmed alive. The more prolonged the halt in some unrelieved system of order, the greater the crash of the dead society.

By Alfred North Whitehead
The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.

By Peter Drucker

By Peter Drucker
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

By Alan Watts
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.

By William O. Douglas
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I se it, is service to a fellow human being.

By Lech Walesa
The well adjusted make poor prophets. A pleasant existence blinds us to the possibilities of drastic change. We cling to what we call our common sense, our practical point of view. Actually, these are names for an all-absorbing familiarity with things as they are.... Thus it happens that when the times become unhinged, it is the practical people who are caught unaware...still clinging to things that no longer exist.

By Eric Hoffer
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).

By Milan Kundera
The world goes up and the world goes down, the sunshine follows the rain; and yesterday's sneer and yesterday's frown can never come over again.

By Charles Kingsley
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.

By W. R. [William Ralph] Inge
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.

By Bhagavad Gita
There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse; as I have found in traveling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one's position and be bruised in a new place.

By Washington Irving
There is no new thing under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9

By Joyce Cary
Goals allow you to control the direction of change in your favor.

By Brian Tracy
He that will not apply new remedies must expect new evils; for time is the greatest innovator. Change

By Francis Bacon
He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.

By Harold Wilson
Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world Are the ones who do.

By Anon.
I tried to change the world, but I was outnumbered.

By Source Unknown
I've continued to recognize the power individuals have to change virtually anything and everything in their lives in an instant. I've learned that the resources we need to turn our dreams into reality are within us, merely waiting for the day when we decide to wake up and claim our birthright.

By Source Unknown
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is Nature's inexorable imperative.

By H. G. Wells
People can't live with change if there's not a changeless core inside them. The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value.

Revolutionary road is thorny but somebody has to break the forbidden gates and start walking, and then the thorns will break their own sharpness...and then we can smell the sweetness of The Change!

Triple riding, smoking in non-smoking areas, breaking red-signals, riding in one-way wrong side, running away from cops, taking under-18 kids to lounges, f***ing around in strictly restricted areas, bribing cops, accidents, not carrying driving license or valid documents... Not following anything! Change the f***ing government, f*** corruption off first!

By Syed_Amaan_Ahmad
I don't think corruption will fade forever soon because the giver and taker will mutually understand and will not let things out! First, we got to annihilate the corruption within the souls!

By Syed_Amaan_Ahmad
Should I celebrate the Independence day? Should I be happy that we are free? Or should I weep that this day was the day when we actually got incarcerated in the domestic atrocities of politicians? Did WE, or the corruption, pain, get the freedom? Should we listen to old Independence songs and be blind and get used to it, or should WE fight back for the REAL FREEDOM???

By Syed_Amaan_Ahmad
Flying freely in the sky, by slashing clouds and enjoying breeze, does not always depict freedom. Sometimes the unbearable burden of these swift wings could drag the body down, along with the inevitable gravitational pull... And then the crash-land, amidst perky thorns... Broken, helpless becomes the psyche!

There will be a day when ego and attitude will be at peak, nobody would want to work UNDER or FOR anyone, everybody would prefer Business to Jobs... And finding honest, dedicated, faithful, loyal employees would be a dream of the past! Cut-throat competition will cut throats of small businessmen, giant fish will gulp them down, but everybody has TEETH, depends how one pierces, uses!

By Syed_Amaan_Ahmad
When they can have MNS, Shiv Senas, Al-Qaidas and other such organizations for the sake of their own needs, then we can have too, for the sake of humanity,to fight back,to reform justice! When cops fail, we prevail...TJM is on its way. I dont know how long will it take for us to get into the power but someday,we will be mighty,and we will be ready for the WORST,bring it on and try to pull us down!

The people who are changed by the books have to find their own identities as they are lost somewhere but the lives/characters of the people which/that are like books hold real identities.

By Syed_Amaan_Ahmad
I think nobody actually changes, never. They just change (switch)their channels. People evolve. Change is inevitable, constant yet stagnant.... but it is like channel which we switch on to, like skin that we get into as and when required depending upon the circumstances and incidents that occur(red), (simultaneously) in lives at one point or another....

We are of course modernised, but surely our state of mind is not civilised yet. Unfortunately, we are still facing wars, injustice and discrimination everywhere in the world. It is not the civilisation: it is just the change of the ways.
