Men argue. Nature acts. ~ Voltaire
Change quotes by Voltaire
I'll just have them change the entry in the demonology textbook from 'almost extinct' to 'not extinct enough for Alec. He prefers his monsters really, really extinct.' Will that make you happy? ~ Cassandra Clare
Change quotes by Cassandra Clare
The incremental approach to change is effective when what you want is more of what you've already got. ~ Richard Pascale
Change quotes by Richard Pascale
Where there is a lesson to be learned there is always an opportunity of change to be gained. Change comes by learning, help us Lord Jesus to learn something from every lesson. ~ Euginia Herlihy
Change quotes by Euginia Herlihy
This is a lesson everyone who studies language eventually learns. You cannot stop language change. You may not like it ; you may regret the arrival of new forms and the passing of old ones but there is not the slightest thing you can do about it. Language change is as natural as breathing. It is one of the linguistic facts of life. ~ David Crystal
Change quotes by David Crystal
Over the past several years, all of us as Canadians, and as members of the North American cultural and economic environment, have been to a greater or lesser extent party to a significant attitudinal change towards our culture. ~ Alex Campbell
Change quotes by Alex Campbell
The question is not whether we are able to change but whether we are changing fats enough. ~ Angela Merkel
Change quotes by Angela Merkel
A miracle is never perfect when it happens, there are always little disappointments. But once it's gone for good and nothing can change it, memory could make it perfect and then it would never change. If I can just call it to life now, won't it always stay the same? Won't it stay with me as long as I live? ~ Erich Maria Remarque
Change quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
I'm for style - fashions change too often. ~ Coco Chanel
Change quotes by Coco Chanel
That's one of the problems with doing anything for a long time. Staying home, for instance. The longer you stay, the more you believe your identity is wrapped up in the people and things around you. You become trapped. It seems as if you fear change because you can't let go of this illusion of yourself as being what? The good granddaughter? The girlfriend who can't choose between her boyfriend and her family? Seems as if your fear of change is really just the same fear of death you mention in your first class. ~ Suzanne Morrison
Change quotes by Suzanne Morrison
The love of wicked men converts to fear, that fear to hate, and hate turns one or both to worthy danger and deserved death. ~ William Shakespeare
Change quotes by William Shakespeare
Any artist that is even surviving right now is a dark horse because things change pretty fast. You're a superstar one day and wake up the next day and you're anonymous. To be successful in any way is beating the odds right now, I think. ~ Chad Kroeger
Change quotes by Chad Kroeger
You have to face the very thing you fear.--tdf ~ Tonya D. Floyd
Change quotes by Tonya D. Floyd
Never doubt that you can change history. You already have. ~ Marge Piercy
Change quotes by Marge Piercy
That which a team does not want to discuss, it most needs to discuss. ~ Paul Gibbons
Change quotes by Paul Gibbons
If you want to do something that really changes someone's life, the best thing you can do is make the person you're trying to help a participant in the process. ~ John Stahl-Wert
Change quotes by John Stahl-Wert
Amo and Lucca were two different people battling for one broken girl. Amo changed around Chloe, becoming a better man. Lucca, however wasn't going to change, showing her exactly the man he was. ~ Sarah Brianne
Change quotes by Sarah Brianne
When I'm triggered, I think, "This will last forever" or "What if this lasts forever?" I get thoughts about how I should give up, run away, hide, protect myself. These thoughts, I cannot change. What I can change is how I respond to them. Will I unconditionally believe these ideas, or will I accept them as side effects of the temporary experience of pain? Will I act on each thought that arises in the burning fire, or will I hold myself gently and say, "It'll be okay. I know it hurts. I love you"? My power lies in these choices. ~ Vironika Tugaleva
Change quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
Our country is now at war and the only way out is forward. I would not change one word I have spoken against war but that is no longer the issue. We must now stand together. ~ David Starr Jordan
Change quotes by David Starr Jordan
According to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, if cows were a country, they would rank third in greenhouse gas emissions, after China and the United States. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
Change quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
Pray and ask God to show you a specific area where you need to let go of selfishness. Once He shows you, don't get discouraged or be afraid - trust God to change you! ~ Joyce Meyer
Change quotes by Joyce Meyer
Reading changes our lives, and our lives change our reading. ~ Maryanne Wolf
Change quotes by Maryanne Wolf
I've always been intrigued by the power of secrets. When is it justifiable to keep them from the ones we love? And does keeping them irrevocably change who we are? ~ Emily Giffin
Change quotes by Emily Giffin
...she was trapped between competing desires, a desire for a more meaningful connection and the desire to never change. She wished for eternal youth and endless merriment. ~ Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Change quotes by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
A "grouplet" - a small, self-organized team that has almost no budget and even less authority, but that tries to change something within the company. ~ Daniel H. Pink
Change quotes by Daniel H. Pink
Most fires made by underestimated sparks, the greatness fire inside ourselves is lit by the spark of the change, came across a small corner in our souls where the conscience still whispering. ~ Ammar Moussa
Change quotes by Ammar Moussa
What is your personal definition of "good"?
A world in which everyone is universally empathetic and exercises love and respect with full change-making power. ~ Bill Drayton
Change quotes by Bill Drayton
He'd wanted changes. It was just that he'd wanted things to stay the same, as well. ~ Terry Pratchett
Change quotes by Terry Pratchett
The point is that market returns are determined by both investment factors - the fundamentals of the initial dividend yield on stocks plus the rate at which their earnings grow - and by speculative factors - the change in the price that investors will pay for each $1 of corporate earnings. ~ John C. Bogle
Change quotes by John C. Bogle
My sympathies are, of course, with the Government side, especially the Anarchists ; for Anarchism seems to me more likely to lead to desirable social change than highly centralized, dictatorial Communism . ~ Aldous Huxley
Change quotes by Aldous Huxley
It was dawn by the time the detective showed up; tired and weary. Tired because he'd been called from his bed before dawn, weary because he'd spent his life looking at the bad side of human nature and that wasn't going to change. ~ Alan Furst
Change quotes by Alan Furst
The answers to our questions are everywhere; we just need to change the lens with which we see the world. ~ Janine Benyus
Change quotes by Janine Benyus
If you allow the life to happen, by connecting with your inner world, then you don't have to worry about the changes with your perception or the change in the outside world. All you have to do is to follow your inner truth, to reach to your destination. ~ Roshan Sharma
Change quotes by Roshan Sharma
A Thought from the heart"
To begin anew is to breathe
To open your heart is to see
To allow change is to embrace
To love is to be open to the truth ~ Nikki Shiva
Change quotes by Nikki Shiva
Sometimes life-changing moments slip by unnoticed, their significance only becoming apparent in the light of subsequent events. ~ Alex George
Change quotes by Alex George
Experienced things that caused you to deemed yourself unworthy. Healing the wounds of the past is one of the biggest and most worthwhile challenges of life. It's important to know when and how you were programed so you can change the program. In doing so is your responsibility no one else's. ~ Oprah Winfrey
Change quotes by Oprah Winfrey
If I could change the structure of existence I would do it. I could see a better way to live for everybody. ~ Woody Allen
Change quotes by Woody Allen
Ours has been an expansionist society, but that narrative must change as we run out of places to expand into. But our culture is like a cart stuck in the same old rut that has been leading us in one direction. The longer we've been using a path, the deeper the ruts get, the harder it is to escape them. We've been moving ever Westward, but there's only so far we can go in that direction before we fall into the ocean. It's a direction that we cannot continue on forever, but the breaking of those ruts will require a major rupture. The old narrative is dying, and it will be quite a crushing of gears before things are re-adjusted. A shared story is needed for a civilization to endure. ~ James Rozoff
Change quotes by James Rozoff
We no longer live in a mass-media world with a few centralized choke points with just a few editors in charge, operated by commercial entities and governments. There is a new, radically different mode of information and attention flow: the chaotic world of the digitally networked public sphere (or spheres) where ordinary citizens or activists can generate ideas, document and spread news of events, and respond to mass media. This new sphere, too, has choke points and centralization, but different ones than the past. The networked public sphere has emerged so forcefully and so rapidly that it is easy to forget how new it is. Facebook was started in 2004 and Twitter in 2006. The first iPhone, ushering in the era of the smart, networked phone, was introduced in 2007. The wide extent of digital connectivity might blind us to the power of this transformation. It should not. These dynamics are significant social mechanisms, especially for social movements, since they change the operation of a key resource: attention… Attention is oxygen for movements. Without it, they cannot catch fire. ~ Zeynep Tufekci
Change quotes by Zeynep Tufekci
Rebellion even in its smallest forms can eventually birth great change. With change comes hope. ~ Catherine Adel West
Change quotes by Catherine Adel West
Americans are hungry for change both at home and in our relations with the rest of the world. ~ Susan Rice
Change quotes by Susan Rice
The basis for true change is freedom from negativity. And that's what acceptance implies: no negativity about what is. And then you see what this moment requires: what is it that is required now so that life can express itself more fully? ~ Eckhart Tolle
Change quotes by Eckhart Tolle
I am responsible for what I see. I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt. I could see peace instead of THIS. The past is over it can touch me not. This instant is the only time there is. Today I will judge nothing that occurs. I am not the victim of the world I see. I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts. I am determined to see things differently. I am never upset for the reason I think. Forgiveness is the key to happiness. All that I give I give to myself. ~ Hugh Prather
Change quotes by Hugh Prather
See, phrenology is this old Victorian science, which claimed you could determine the dominant traits of a man's personality by studying the bumps on his head. The size and position of these bumps indicated different personality traits. See? Now, /retro-phrenology/ says, why not change a man's personality by hitting him on the head with a hammer, till you raise just the right bumps in the right places!"
"One of us needs a lot more drinks," said Alex. "That's starting to make sense. ~ Simon R. Green
Change quotes by Simon R. Green
If we spark a student's passion, we unleash a powerful force upon the world. ~ Tim Fargo
Change quotes by Tim Fargo
I believe that in the end that it is kindness and accommodation that are all the catalysts for real change. ~ Nelson Mandela
Change quotes by Nelson Mandela
Goals change, ideas of technology are transformed, but action always remains action. Action always seeks means to realize ends, and it is in this sense always rational and mindful of utility. It is, in a word, human. ~ Ludwig Von Mises
Change quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
We will do anything to get away from our own pain. We will change our lives, rip people out, swallow a bottle of life-ending pills. When we hurt more than we can bear, when our lives get that dark, it's shocking what we will do to protect ourselves. ~ Pamela Ribon
Change quotes by Pamela Ribon
There are mainly four types of living beings: vegetables, parasites, animals and humans. Vegetables go through life without any conscience of what it means to be alive, and all they can do is react to what happens around them and unto them. Parasites take advantage of others beings to survive but cannot survive on their own. In fact, they rather kill their host than to improve themselves independently. Animals are driven by basic instincts, like sex and pleasure for food. Animals can have attachments but that is as far as they go in what concerns love. Now human, they are capable of all that, plus the ability to love on will, to change, help others change, and create any reality they want to experience. However, almost everyone I encounter, is either pretending to be a plant, a parasite or an animal, not a human. Few people know what it means to be human, and that's how the waste their own existence. This said, we wouldn't need to answer questions about life purpose when the purpose is understood in being what one was born to be. ~ Robin Sacredfire
Change quotes by Robin Sacredfire
A single opinion is comfortable. Comfort is hostile to change. Progress is uncomfortable because it changes the comfort. ~ Thomas Vato
Change quotes by Thomas Vato
All lands change for the worse when the people do not fight back. Now there is nothing left." "But ~ Zoraida Cordova
Change quotes by Zoraida Cordova
Music moves society more than most people realize. In my opinion, it's a soft manipulator of influence and change. ~ Kim Harrison
Change quotes by Kim Harrison
My books are based on the "what if" principle. "What if you became invisible?" or "What if you did change into your mother for one day?" I then take it from there. Each book takes several months in the long process of writing, rewriting, writing, rewriting, and each has its own set of problems. The one thing I dislike about the writing process is the sometimes-loneliness of it all. Readers only get to see the glamour part of a bound book, not some of the agonizing moments one has while constructing it. ~ Mary Rodgers
Change quotes by Mary Rodgers
Fight for change? Thirst for difference?
Start talking what men avoid talking about. ~ Toba Beta
Change quotes by Toba Beta
Right now you can make a decision, ... If you truly decided to, you can do almost anything. So if you don't liike the current relationship you're in, make the decision now to change it. If you don't like your current job, change it. ~ Tony Robbins
Change quotes by Tony Robbins
I don't feel like there should have been three backs taken ahead of me. And I'll always feel that way. But there's only one draft, and I can't change it. All I can do is go out and prove myself. ~ Clinton Portis
Change quotes by Clinton Portis
Every person that steps up and commits to social change helps solidify the black movement cause. It is not easy for those who fill in the leader role. ~ Assata Shakur
Change quotes by Assata Shakur
We've taken disturbances and fluctuations and averaged them together to give us comfortable statistics. Our training has been to look for big numbers, important trends, major variances. Yet it is the slight variations - soft-spoken, even whispered at first - that we need to encourage. ~ Margaret J. Wheatley
Change quotes by Margaret J. Wheatley
It is not the length of years but a multitude of generations that makes things obscure. For truth is only perverted when men change. ~ Blaise Pascal
Change quotes by Blaise Pascal
We are creatures of habit more than we are creatures of change. ~ A.J. Darkholme
Change quotes by A.J. Darkholme
No status change, we hold our fire. ~ Just Josh
Change quotes by Just Josh
When your ears hear and your eyes see the sin, weakness, or failure of your husband or wife, it is never an accident; it is always grace. God loves your spouse, and he is committed to transforming him or her by his grace, and he has chosen you to be one of his regular tools of change. ~ Paul David Tripp
Change quotes by Paul David Tripp
Recent data and research supports the importance of natural climate variability and calls into question the conclusion that humans are the dominant cause of recent climate change. ~ Judith Curry
Change quotes by Judith Curry
Only stupid people don't change their minds. ~ Boutros Boutros-Ghali
Change quotes by Boutros Boutros-Ghali
I became a physicist to understand the world, then I became a writer to try and change it. ~ Carla H. Krueger
Change quotes by Carla H. Krueger
Books,' I say sleepily. 'They don't change either. If you read a book and look at it again later on, it's still the same thing. But it's exciting all over again. ~ Truus Matti
Change quotes by Truus Matti
the obstacles are enough to change a person's attitude and have them become depressed, overwhelmed, unhappy or sad. The positive ends, the negative begins and the demons win. ~ Terri Reid
Change quotes by Terri Reid
I guess what they say is true - sometimes you have to smack up against a brick wall before you can admit it's time to change or die. For me the death was an emotional one. It's taken me this long to figure out I was killing myself by shutting off my true feelings and desires. ~ Claire Thompson
Change quotes by Claire Thompson
If enough of us stop looking away and decide that climate change is a crisis worthy of Marshall Plan levels of response, then it will become one. ~ Naomi Klein
Change quotes by Naomi Klein
Life is a changing sequence of situations.If you do not change something, something will change you. ~ Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Change quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
It is ... idle to pretend, as many do, that there is no contradiction between religion and science. Science contradicts religion as surely as Judaism contradicts Islam-they are absolutely and irresolvably conflicting views. Unless, that is, science is obliged to change its fundamental nature. ~ Bryan Appleyard
Change quotes by Bryan Appleyard
I am not very good at sticking to outlines, and I double back all the time to revisit scenes and change things. ~ Holly Black
Change quotes by Holly Black
My being consists of matter and form, that is, of soul and body; annihilation will reach neither of them, for they were never produced out of nothing. The consequence is, that every part of me will serve to make something in the world; and this again will change into another part through an infinite succession of change. This constant method of alteration gave me my being, and my father before me, and so on to eternity backward: for I think I may speak thus, even though the world be confined within certain determinate periods. ~ Marcus Aurelius
Change quotes by Marcus Aurelius
Conscious discipline creates control and clarity to act intentionally. ~ Tony Dovale
Change quotes by Tony Dovale
There's no doubt in my mind over the next 25 years how we drive, how we build our houses, how we fly, how we build our buildings, will all change. ~ Vinod Khosla
Change quotes by Vinod Khosla
And if you write something that cheers someone up when they're feeling down, doesn't that change the world? ~ Meg Cabot
Change quotes by Meg Cabot
I hate that I have to say this, but you're too innocent, too trusting that the good will win out the evil in people. It's what I love about you and never wish for that to change. But evil exists, Abby, and people do bad things. You can believe in humanity, but trusting them is something different. Trust yourself and what your heart tells you. ~ Ashlan Thomas
Change quotes by Ashlan Thomas
A lifelong insomniac, I sleep like one newly dead every night and dream deeply harmonious dreams of swimming along with the current in a clear green river, playing and at home in the water. On the first night, I dreamed that the real name of the house was not Bramasole but Cento Angeli, One Hundred Angels, and that I would discover them one by one. Is it bad luck to change the name of a house, as it is to rename a boat? As a trepid foreigner, I wouldn't. But for me, the house now has a secret name as well as its own name. ~ Frances Mayes
Change quotes by Frances Mayes
As long as scepticism is based on a sound understanding of science it is invaluable, for that is how science progresses. But poor criticism can lead those who are unfamiliar with the science involved into doubting everything about climate change predictions. ~ Tim Flannery
Change quotes by Tim Flannery
If Obama wanted to make radical changes to America's health long-term, all he has to do is treble the price of sugar and salt. ~ Jamie Oliver
Change quotes by Jamie Oliver
I think the difference between me and some people is that I'm content to do my little bit. Sometimes people think they have to do big things in order to make change. But if each one would light a candle we'd have a tremendous light. ~ Thea Bowman
Change quotes by Thea Bowman
Whatever you do, be happy with you. Don't conform. You are who you are, and you shouldn't change that for anybody. ~ Aimee Teegarden
Change quotes by Aimee Teegarden
I believe that the art market is in a place similar to the music industry in 2005. Big changes are coming and the art market will most likely be very different in ten years. However, if you are the art equivalent of Van Halen, you don't really have to change anything. But if you are not Van Halen, then it is time to figure how to adapt to all the changes. ~ Mark Edward
Change quotes by Mark Edward
Don't wait for the world to change. Change your mind about the world. ~ Alan Cohen
Change quotes by Alan Cohen
Spoken like a true Nipponese," Enoch says bitterly. "You never change." "Please make me understand what you are saying." "What of the man who cannot get out of bed and work, because he has no legs? What of the widow who has no husband to work, no children to support her? What of children who cannot improve their minds because they lack books and schoolhouses?" "You can shower gold on them," Goto Dengo says. "Soon enough, it will all be gone." "Yes. But some of it will be gone into books and bandages. ~ Neal Stephenson
Change quotes by Neal Stephenson
It's such a nice change to get to play a wretched, shallow, mergers-and-acquisitions woman. My true colors come out. ~ Sigourney Weaver
Change quotes by Sigourney Weaver
The why is what makes journalism an adult game. The why is what makes policy coherent and useful. The why is what transforms bureaucrats and foot soldiers and political leaders into viable instruments of rational and affirmative change. The why is everything and without it, the very suggestion of human progress becomes a cosmic joke. ~ David Simon
Change quotes by David Simon
You can change your life and make it what you want it to be, but only if you take consistent action. ~ Eddie De Jong
Change quotes by Eddie  De Jong
The President must be true to his word. He must keep his faith with the folks who elected him twice. In other words, he must replace Sandra Day O'Connor with a strict constructionist. The president has a God-given opportunity to change the balance on the Supreme Court. On issue after issue - abortion, sodomy, public display of the Ten Commandments - O'Connor has sided with the court's liberal bloc. Time and again, Justice O'Connor and her colleagues have used the Constitution as an excuse to force weird social experiments on the nation. ~ Rick Scarborough
Change quotes by Rick Scarborough
You have only to lift your hand,' Thorkel Fostri said. And after a moment, 'What else were you born for?'
'Why not happiness, like other men? Thorfinn said.
'You have that,' said his foster-father. 'But if you try to trap it, it will change. Why do you resist? It is your right.'
'I resist because it is no use resisting,' Thorfinn said. 'Do you not think that is unfair? I shall be King because I was King; and I shall die because I did die; and did I remember them, I could even tell what are the three ways it might befall me. ~ Dorothy Dunnett
Change quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
If you assume that there is no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, that there are opportunities to change things, then there is a possibility that you can contribute to making a better world. ~ Noam Chomsky
Change quotes by Noam Chomsky
It never occurred to me that I couldn't change things that needed changing or couldn't have what I wanted if I worked hard enough and was good enough. ~ Kathleen Turner
Change quotes by Kathleen Turner
I don't want to become this lazy person, a guy who thinks in terms of New Year's resolutions. I really do want to see a change in myself in certain ways, but I want to figure out exactly what they are and not have it be like a diet that I'm trying. ~ Blake Mills
Change quotes by Blake Mills
The real difficulty is with the vast wealth and power in the hands of the few and the unscrupulous who represent or control capital. Hundreds of laws of Congress and the state legislatures are in the interest of these men and against the interests of workingmen. These need to be exposed and repealed. All laws on corporations, on taxation, on trusts, wills, descent, and the like, need examination and extensive change. This is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people no longer. It is a government of corporations, by corporations, and for corporations. ~ Rutherford B. Hayes
Change quotes by Rutherford B. Hayes
I'm OK with being single, but I'm not OK when the time comes where I have to move my furniture around and to change the high ceiling light balls ... ~ Hiroko Sakai
Change quotes by Hiroko Sakai
I think we're not going to preserve Fannie and Freddie in anything like their current form. We're going to have to bring fundamental change to that market. ~ Timothy Geithner
Change quotes by Timothy Geithner
Oh these dumb dumb dumb Okies, they'll never change, how com-pletely and how unbelievably dumb, the moment it comes time to act, this paralysis, scared, hysterical, nothing frightens em more than what they WANT- it's MY FATHER MY FATER MY FATHER all over again! ~ Jack Kerouac
Change quotes by Jack Kerouac
My greatest challenge has been to change the mindset of people. Mindsets play strange tricks on us. We see things the way our minds have instructed our eyes to see. ~ Muhammad Yunus
Change quotes by Muhammad Yunus
Worlds may change, galaxies disintegrate, but a woman always remains a woman ~ James Kirk
Change quotes by James Kirk
You really should do some research for a change instead of just listening to the voices in your head. ~ John Ringo
Change quotes by John Ringo
