It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
A lot of people get impatient with the pace of change.
Things do not change, we change.
Henry David Thoreau
Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change – this is the rhythm of living. Out of our over-confidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.
Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.
Robert F. Kennedy
All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward.
We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
Always remember that the future comes one day at a time.
He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.
Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
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.
When you are through changing, you are through.
Anyone who thinks there’s safety in numbers hasn’t looked at the stock market pages.
