Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing.

We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.
The search for static security -- in the law and elsewhere -- is misguided. The fact is security can only be achieved through constant change, adapting old ideas that have outlived their usefulness to current facts.
Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast. If a man habituated to a narrow circle of cares and pleasures, out of which he seldom travels, step beyond it, though for never so brief a space, his departure from the monotonous scene on which he has been an actor of importance would seem to be the signal for instant confusion. The mine which Time has slowly dug beneath familiar objects is sprung in an instant; and what was rock before, becomes but sand and dust.
Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
Don't fear change -- embrace it.
Being willing to change allows you to move from a point of view to a viewing point -- a higher, more expansive place, from which you can see both sides.
To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
People wish to be settled. It is only as far as they are unsettled that there is any hope for them.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.
Change hurts. It makes people insecure, confused, and angry. People want things to be the same as they've always been, because that makes life easier. But, if you're a leader, you can't let your people hang on to the past.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them -- that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
I do not believe you can do today's job with yesterday's methods and be in business tomorrow.
Life is made of millions of moments, but we live only one of these moments at a time. As we begin to change this moment, we begin to change our lives.
To become different from what we are, we must have some awareness of what we are.
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
Change does not necessarily assure progress, but progress implacably requires change. Education is essential to change, for education creates both new wants and the ability to satisfy them.
Today is not yesterday: we ourselves change; how can our works and thoughts, if they are always to be the fittest, continue always the same? Change, indeed is painful; yet ever needful; and if memory have its force and worth, so also has hope.
The true past departs not, no truth or goodness realized by man ever dies, or can die; but all is still here, and, recognized or not, lives and works through endless change.
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
Everybody wants to do something to help, but nobody wants to be the first.
That things are changed, and that nothing really perishes, and that the sum of matter remains exactly the same, is sufficiently certain.
Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.
Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Any change, even for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.
By nature man hates change; seldom will he quit his old home till it has actually fallen around his ears.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
We are restless because of incessant change, but we would be frightened if change were stopped.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
To act and act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait and wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the rising and falling tides (of affairs), so that with nature and law at his back, and truth and beneficence as his beacon light, he may accomplish wonders. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other. Man thus becomes the victim of the tides when he should be their Master.
Nothing is lasting but change; nothing perpetual but death.
To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly
When you're through changing, you're through.
