Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead

No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal.

Marilyn Ferguson

One bold era in the life of an individual can change the course of civilization.

Dennis Ruane

Persistance is teperfect key to open any doors that are shut by Resistance. Small and tiny rain drops can create holes in the solid rocks, not because of their force but the constancy of their attack - highlighting the fact that the Persuation can surely break down even the mightiest walls of resistance. Pursue your Dreams and Philosophies, relentlessly, to bring about the Change.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Physics does not change the nature of the world it studies, and no science of behavior can change the essential nature of man, even though both sciences yield technologies with a vast power to manipulate their subject matters.

B. F. Skinner

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

George Bernard Shaw

Reputation and Character are not one and the same thing. They are radically different. Reputation is what others think of you, while Character is what God knows about you. People can manipulate the thinking of others, but they cannot hide or change the truth that is known to God, the Supreme Power. Whenever you come across a dilemma, and you have to make a choice from various options, you must think of the Truth first before thinking about the Reputation. Truth will always build your Character, set you free, and bring you closer to Supreme Power.

Resistance to Change comes from your Ego.

Gordana Biernat

Small actions can cause great harm, especially when those actions become habits. So just a little tiny change in the right place at the right time, everything will be much better.

Woody Haldrugold

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts.... We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes.

Charles R. Swindoll

The pessimist complains about the wind the optimist expects it to change the realist adjusts the sails.

William Arthur Ward

The philosophers have already perceived the world in various ways; the point is to change it.

Karl Marx, from "The Eleventh Thesis on Feuerbach"

The phrase "Survival of the fittest" was first coined by Herbert Spencer in his "Principles of Biology" (1864) after reading Charles Darwin's theory of "natural selection" discussed in "On the Origin of Species" by Darwin - published in the same year. Five years later, Darwin first used Spencer's new phrase "Survival of the fittest" alongside his phrase "natural selection" in his fifth edition of "On the Origin of Species", published in 1869. It's interesting to note that "fittest" is often misconstrued as either the strongest of the species or the most intelligent species, which is neither an accurate description nor the interpretation desired by Darwin in his theory. In actuality, the fittest species is the one that is the most adaptable to change. In other words, those who can become most well adapted to current environment and the changes therein, can have the chance and opportunity to survive. Darwin's theory of natural selection teaches us that it's absolutely important to welcome the change, and manage the change for survival and for becoming the winner. It's really interesting that being the most adaptable to change often outweighs the strength and intelligence factors, contrary to the common understanding of life and the phrase "Survival of the fittest.

There globalization of trade, knowledge, innovation, industrialization and entrepreneurial culture is increasing at a rapid rate and the net result is more distribution of wealth and power. A new world order is imminent. The countries that succeed will be those with better socioeconomic policies, more cash, natural resources and creativity. The US can embrace this change and compete or we can resist it and lose.

Med Jones

Things change, but this is just one side of normality we have to deal with.

Cristian Andrei Nica

Things do not change we change.

Henry David Thoreau

To change and to change for the better are two different things.

German proverb

Transformation does not happen by learning new information. It happens when you change how you view and react to other people, events and things around you.

Med Jones

Unles we change direction, we are likely to wind up where we are headed.

Chinese Proverb

We are chameleons, and our partialities and prejudices change place with an easy and blessed facility, and we are soon wonted to the change and happy in it.

Mark Twain

We must become the change we want to see.

Mahatma Gandhi

We mustn't be afraid of change. Having said that, many people still are. They often feel very cmfortable in their comfort zone, and secure in the pond that are used to all their life. They never dare to venture out of the stagnant pond, and they never know the existance of ocean. And they are happy in theirignorance. Being comfotable with status quo is the very reason why many people don't have anything better in life. It's not the Karma, Kismet, Serendpity or Destiny. It's their own doing, and reaping exactly what they sow. Never be afraid of changes and challenges of life. It's for your good - almost always!

We, as Humans, are distinct and unique in our capability to dream, and then strive to transform those Dreams into reality. The Dreams at night, seen with eyes wide shut, are nothing but illusions created by electronic impulses and waves within our brain and central nervous system. On the contrary, the Dreams seen in broad daylight, with our eyes wide open, are the most important ones, because we can pursue those diligently with total focus from our heart and mind, and soon make them come true in actuality. In my opinion, these Dreamers, Believers, Pursuers, Thinkers, Inventors, Innovators, Planners, Strategists, and Doers are the ones who change our world, and make it better and better than it was ever before. Our world needs billions and trillions of such Dreamers who will lead humanity to perfection. So, never let your Dreams fade away or die, especially those you've seen in the broad daylight, with eyes wide open. Go after your Dreams, relentlessly with perfect plan, passion and perseverance, no matter what others say or do. Good luck in making your Dreams come true.!

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

What do I do? I am so sick of being alone. Not having someone else who can share my company. No one to go to when I’m alone or feeling down. Everyone else has had someone at one point. Felt the joy of another human’s touch. But not I. For I have yet to feel the warm embrace of the opposite sex. Still with no idea what a simple kiss is like. And yet there are others who partake in far greater bounties than I can ever imagine. Worse yet, they lack intelligence and haven’t the slightest idea what they have. They take things for granted and don’t have a care in the world. But it is all fine in the end. For there is an eternal balance to everything that happens. They may have their forbidden fruit, but it is that very thing that has poisoned their minds and made them oblivious to the truths of life. The hidden wonders that can only be learned over time. Between the two I prefer my scenario. I may miss out on wonderful bounties now, but they become available to everyone eventually. And I am very patient. Besides, by waiting just a little longer I can understand things now that will take them years to even think of. I count myself lucky. If not in society’s eye but in my eye. Because I know that in the future everything will work out for the better. Such is the way of things to always have a balance. One day I will be with that person. That one special someone to share my life and happiness with. So, what do I do? Well, I am going to wait. Not forever, but for that opportune time when I know I will be able to change everything. I will wait and endure the status quo to one day experience the balance. I have told you what I will do. Now, what will you do?

Whatever we are today is the outcome of the choices we had made before. When we connect the dots, we realize how various events led to the results that we see today. If we do not like the outcome, we must change our choices. In my honest view, we create our own future with our own hands, and Destiny is surely not a matter of chance but of choices we make everyday. Good luck my friend, in making right choices.
