 Charles Dickens - “The jovial party broke up next morning. Breakings-up are capital things in our school-days, but in after life they are painful enough. Death, self-interest, and fortune's changes, are every day breaking up many a happy group, and scattering them far and wide and the boys and girls never come back again.”  
 Charles Dickens - “Long may it remain in this mixed world a point not easy of decision, which is the more beautiful evidence of the Almighty's goodness--the delicate fingers that are formed for sensitiveness and sympathy of touch, and made to minister to pain and grief, or the rough hard Captain Cuttle hand, that the heart teaches, guides, and softens in a moment”  
 H. Rider Haggard - “Slowly the sun sank, then suddenly darkness rushed down on the land like a tangible thing. There was no breathing-space between the day and night, no soft transformation scene, for in these latitudes twilight does not exist. The change from day to night is as quick and as absolute as the change from life to death.”  
 Daniel Defoe - “To-day we love what to-morrow we hate to-day we seek what to-morrow we shun to-day we desire what to-morrow we fear.”  
 Charles Dickens - “That was a memorable day to me, for it made great changes in me. But, it is the same with any life. Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day.”  
 Charles Dickens - “Change begets change. Nothing propagates so fast.”  
 Kazi Shams - “One change brings upon a hundred more.”  
 Robert Heinlein - “The hardest part of gaining any new idea is sweeping out the false idea occupying that niche.”  
 Alvin Toffler - “In describing todays accelerating changes, the media fire blips of unrelated information at us. Experts bury us under mountains of narrowly specialized monographs. Popular forecasters present lists of unrelated trends, without any to show us their interconnections or the forces likely to reverse them. As a result, change itself comes to be seen as anarchic, even lunatic.”  
 Alfred North Whitehead - “The art of progress is to preserve order amid change, and to preserve change amid order.”  
 Henry David Thoreau - “Things do not change, we do.”  
 Proverb - “To change and change for the better are two different things”  
 Alexander Pope - “Be not the first by which a new thing is tried, or the last to lay the old aside.”  
 Lao Tzu - “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.”  
 Thomas p Kempis - “Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.”  
 Dean William R. Inge - “There are two kinds of fools One says, ''This is old therefore it is good.'' The other one says, ''This is new therefore it is better.''”  
 Euripides - “It is change all yields its place and goes.”  
 Wayne Dyer - “If all people are unique, and if they are constantly changing each and every day, then all one can say about any social research finding is that it applied to that group of people on that given day, and given the propensity of humans to be different and to change, then it is unlikely that one would get the same results if one were to repeat the study.”  
 Gita Bellin - “If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.”  
 Douglas MacArthur - “The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear keep us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.”  
 Thich Hanh - “In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change.”
