Serious illness leaves no aspect of life untouched. Your relationships, your work, your sense of what life is and ought to be these all change, and the change is terrifying.
Arthur W. Frank, Reflections on Illness 1991

These are the days when men of all social disciplines and all political faiths seek the comfortable and the accepted; when the man of controversy is looked upon as a disturbing influence; when originality is taken to be a mark of instability; and when, in minor modification of the original parable, the bland lead the bland.
John Kenneth Galbraith, economist, Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, The Affluent Society, 1976

It is an axiom of statesmanship, which the successful founders of tyranny have understood and acted upon, that great changes can best be brought about under old forms. We, who would free men, should heed the same truth. It is the natural method. When nature would make a higher type, she takes a lower one and develops it. This is the law also of social growth. Let us work by it. With the current we may glide fast and far. Against it, it is hard pulling and slow progress.
Henry George, Progress and Poverty, 1879

Time changes every man. Unusual circumstances change them in unusual ways.
Bryant Gumbel 2 26 93

The transformations of this century are not merely a matter of historic events; there is no day on which history will leap from necessity to freedom. There is rather a molecular process, composed of millions and even billions of personal decisions, whereby, men and women assert their will to take control of their own destiny.
Michael Harrington, Fragments of the Century, 1973

"The world owes all of its onward impulses to men ill at ease. The happy man inevitably confines himself within ancient limits."
Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 1864)

"You cannot step twice into the same stream. For as you are stepping in, other and yet other waters flow on."

To dispose a soul to action we must upset its equilibrium.
Eric Hoffer, The Ordeal of Change 1964

Sacred cows make the tastiest hamburger.
Abbie Hoffman

The finest flowers are those transplanted; for transplanting means difficulty, a readjusting to new conditions, and through the effort put forth to find adjustment does the plant progress. Transplanted men are the ones who do the things worth while, and transplanted girls are the only ones who inspire a mighty passion.
Elbert Hubbard

I believe that the aim of the avant garde should be to re discover not invent in their purest state, the permanent forms and forgotten ideals of the theatre. I make no claim to have succeeded in this. But others will succeed and show that all truth and reality is classical and eternal.
Eugene Ionesco

Great innovations should not be forced on slender majorities.
Thomas Jefferson, 5-2-1808, Letter to Thaddeus Kosciusko

Today's truth may not stand as tall, nor at all tomorrow;
But the spirit of its telling should never change.

If the shoe fits, wear it until it wears out, or seasons or needs change.

There are many things you CAN do, that you have never done.

There are many things that CAN be done that have never been done.
