You must be the change you want to see in the world.

Mahatma Gandhi

You will meet many people who will try to put you down, and tell you that your idea was the stupidest thing they had ever heard. You mustn't get discouraged by their dysfunctional critique. You must believe in yourself, and then only you can negate their negativity. In my view, nothing will change in your life until you believe strongly in yourself. Conversely, if you have a low opinion of yourself, no one is going to raise it, and you will live with status quo. Believe in your dreams, in your ambitions, and most importantly, in yourself - no matter what others say or do.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Your history doesn’t matter, defining yourself in the present does as that will change your future

Chris Hartley

Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Saint Francis of Assisi

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

Maya Angelou

If you aren't happy with your life, change things until you are... if you can't change something, change your attitude about it.

Ingrid Weir

Imperious, choleric, irascible, extreme in everything, with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen, atheistic to the point of fanaticism, there you have me in a nutshell, and kill me again or take me as I am, for I shall not change.

Marquis de Sade

Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change...

Barack Obama

A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.

Winston Churchill

Don't knock the weather nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while.

Kim Hubbard

I am personally convinced that one person can be a change catalyst, a 'transformer' in any situation, any organization. Such an individual is yeast that can leaven an entire loaf. It requires vision, initiative, patience, respect, persistence, courage, and faith to be a transforming leader.

Stephen Covey

I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me. I have accepted fear as a part of life--specifically the fear of change, the fear of the unknown and I have gone ahead despite the pounding in my heart that says turn back, turn back, you'll die if you venture too far.

Erica Jong

It is still an unending source of surprise for me how a few scribbles on a blackboard or on a piece of paper can change the course of human affairs.

Stanislaw Ulam

Look abroad through Nature's range, Nature's mighty law is change.

Robert Burns

People change and forget to tell eachother.

Lillian Hellman

Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience.

George Santayana

The fact that astronomies change while the stars abide is a true analogy of every realm of human life and thought, religion not least of all. No existent theology can be a final formulation of spiritual truth.

Harry Emerson Fosdick

The fear of making permanent commitments can change the mutual love of husband and wife into two loves of self-two loves existing side by side, until they end in separation.

Pope John Paul II

The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything -- or nothing.

Lady Nancy Astor

We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing.

R. D. Laing

A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years, but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.

Albert Einstein

Ferris Cameron has never been in love -- at least, nobody's ever been in love with him. If things don't change for him, he's gonna marry the first girl he lays, and she's gonna treat him like shit, because she will have given him what he has built up in his mind as the end-all, be-all of human existence. She won't respect him, 'cause you can't respect somebody who kisses your ass. It just doesn't work.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Knowledge networks will revolutionize the global economy. They will change the way we think, learn and work. The prosperity of a nation and its people will be determined to a large degree by how well they can leverage the global knowledge networks to develop their resources, collaborate, innovate and market their products and services.

Med Jones

Countries that have strong pre-crisis macroeconomic metrics, rich natural resources and export-based industries have stronger recovery prospects. Strong budgets allow the government to stimulate the economy with less debt burden. Exports play a significant role in supporting a stable interest rate and ex-change rates thus renewing investors confidence and recovery.

Med Jones

If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.

Albert Einstein
