Reflections on Change

Arnold Bennett.  Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.

Everett Dirksen.  Life is not a static thing.  The only people who do not change their minds are incompetents in asylums who can’t and those in cemeteries.

John Kenneth Galbraith.  Faced with the choice between changing one’s mind and proving there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.

Mahatma Gandhi.  You must be the change you want to see.

John Porter.  People underestimate their capacity for change.

Virgil.  They can because they think they can.

Andy Warhol. They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

King Whitney Jr.  Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind.  To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse.  To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better.  To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

[Unknown].  One definition of insanity is believing that you can keep on doing what you have been doing and get different results.
