I'm a quotation addict, so this was an excuse to create a file of quotations on CHANGE. So here's a big batch, wherein you get to read what a few hundred some wise folk say about change--
If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
It often takes more courage to change one's opinion than to stick to it.
Never change horses in mid stream.
No matter how far you have gone on a road, turn back.
Geoffrey F. Abert
Just because the solutions of problems are not visible at any particular time does not mean that those problems will never be alleviated or confined to tolerable dimensions. History has a way of changing the very terms in which problems operate and of leaving them, in the end, unsolved, to be sure, yet strangely deflated of their original meaning and importance.
M. I. Abramowitz
If we learn the art of yielding what must be yielded to the changing present we can save the best of the past.
Dean Acheson, address to Law Club of Chicago, 1-22-1937
Controbersial proposals, once accepted, soon became hallowed.
Dean Acheson, speech, Independence MO, 3-31-1962
If you don't change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever.
Douglas Noel Adams
When a man you like switches from what he said a year ago, or 4 years ago, he is a broad-minded person who has courage enough to change his mind with changing conditions. When a man you don't like does it, he is a liar who has broken his promises.
Franklin P. Adams
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.
What really distinguishes this generation in all countries from earlier generations ... is its determination to act, its joy in action, the assurance of being able to change things by one's own efforts.
CHANGE, ADAPTATION, LAW, GOVERNMENT, REVOLUTION
Even when laws have been written down, they ought not always to remain unaltered.
Aristotle 384-322BC N E
No nation, no social institution ever acquired coherence without some sort of a fight. Out of the fight come its myths and its heroes.
