Time for ChangeI have collected hundreds of quotes over the years, so I thought I would share a few on Change.

“The soft-minded man always fears change. He feels security in the status quo, and he has an almost  morbid fear of the new. For him, the greatest pain is the pain of a new idea.” Martin Luther King Jr.

“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.” Carol Burnett

“The world moves and ideas that were good once are not always good.” Dwight D. Eisenhower

“They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” Andy Warhol

“To be able to look at change as an opportunity to grow – that is the secret to being happy.” Joan Lunden

“To be successful one must make change an ongoing process. Quality is a race with no finish line.” David T. Kearns

“Truly every new idea is a violation of some older idea; as the awakening of tomorrow is a violation of today’s slumber. As long as man continues to evolve, in other words, to separate himself from chaos, and to express himself in a higher form, he must always shatter something. In shattering, he disobeys: in breaking, he creates.” Jeanne de Vietinghoff

“I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” Pablo Picasso

“We are not retreating – we are advancing in another direction.” General Douglas MacArthur

“We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – you can blame anyone but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change, you’re the one who has got to change. It’s as simple as that, isn’t it?” Katherine Hepburn

“We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.” Max Depree

“We must become the change we want to see.” Mohandas K. Gandhi

“What single ability do we all have? The ability to change.” Leonard Andrews

“When we are no longer able to change a situation … we are challenged to change ourselves.” Victor Frankl
