Mehmet Murat ildan

Man needs, for his happiness, not only the enjoyment of this or that, but hope and enterprise and change.

Bertrand Russell

Many people are afraid of Change, because they view it as the destroyer of their comfort zones. They fail miserably to see that the same Change is the creator of something new, exciting, and of potential value in their lives. Do not be afraid of Change, but do make an effort to manage it when the Opportunity knocks on your door.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Men are but children of a larger growth, Our appetites as apt to change as theirs, And full as craving too, and full as vain.

John Dryden

Men are not so weak as you think. They can always leave anybody or any place without a pang - if they find another person or another place they like better. If they feel pricks and scruples it is merely because they cannot make up their mind that the change will be absolutely to their advantage.

John Oliver Hobbes

Men make history, and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.

Harry S Truman

Men make the mistake of thinking that because women can't see the sense in violence, they must be passive creatures. It's just not true. In one important way, at least, men are the passive sex. Given a choice, they will always opt for the status quo. They hate change of any kind, and they fight against it constantly. On the other hand, what women want is stability, which when you stop to think about it is a very different animal.

Eric Lustbader

Middle age is when your broad mind and narrow waist begin to change places.

E. Joseph Crossman

Miracles You do not have to look for them. They are there, 24 7, beaming like radio waves all around you. Put up the antenna, turn up the volume - snap... crackle... this just in, every person you talk to is a chance to change the world...

Hugh Elliott

Modern life is full of challenges, such as daily demands, deadlines, hassles and frustrations. Whenever the threat of any challenge outweighs one's perception of her/his ability to manage that threat, it can be an onset of Stress. I find it interesting that William Shakespear had offered a perfect strategy to manage the Stress - in his famous play "Hamlet". In this play, Hamlet makes a powerful statement: "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." In this one sentence, Shakespear teaches us that if we change our thoughts about a potentially threatening situation, we should be able to not only cope with the stress, but also lower our stress significantly. By now it's a well-established fact in Psychology that thinking positively, and transforming the threat into a potntial opportunity, empowers us to protect ourselves from the harmful side-effects of Stress.....and William Shakespear knew this fact more than 400 years ago. That's amazing!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Money and success don't change people they merely amplify what is already there.

Will Smith

Money does not change the sickness, only the symptoms.

John Steinbeck, The Winter of our Discontent

Money is always there but the pockets change.

Gertrude Stein

Money is always there, but the pockets change.

Gertrude Stein

Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Most advances in science come when a person for one reason or another is forced to change fields.

Peter Borden

Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.

Robert Frost

Much of what we call evil is due entirely to the way men take the phenomenon. It can so often be converted into a bracing and tonic good by a simple change of the sufferer's inner attitude from one of fear to one of fight; its string can so often depart and turn into a relish when, after vainly seeking to shun it, we agree to face about and bear it...

William James

Much sooner than we think, comes the end! Science is the only master who can change this.

Mehmet Murat ildan

My feelings would never change, but... now she was gone, and this thought meant more to me than the impending destruction of the world.

Roger Zelazny, The Courts of Chaos

Nature is the most thrifty thing in the world; she never wastes anything; she undergoes change, but there is no annihilation, the essence remains - matter is eternal.

Horace Binney

Neo I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid... afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules or controls, borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

Matrix, The
