Sample Quotes on Change:

It is not the strongest of the species that survive nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
--Charles Darwin

A bend in the road, is not the end of the road...unless you fail to make the turn.

--Helen Keller

Each of us must be the change we want to see in the world.

--Mahatma Gandhi

--Georg C. Lichtenberg

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

—Rob Siltanen

I’ve never met a person, I don’t care what his condition, in whom I could not see possibilities. I don’t care how much a man may consider himself a failure, I believe in him, for he can change the thing that is wrong in his life any time he is ready and prepared to do it. Whenever he develops the desire, he can take away from his life the thing that is defeating it. The capacity for reformation and change lies within.

--Preston Bradley

Future shock...the shattering stress and disorientation that we induce in

individuals by subjecting them to too much change in too short a time.

--Alvin Toffler

Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.

--Karen Kaiser Clark

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

--Will Rogers
