Some changes are deliberate, while others are a result of the natural progression of life. The first time we notice the natural ageing process (the telltale strands of grey hair), our first reaction is to deny, then defy, and then take action to “correct” the change. But change is the order of nature. The sooner we come to terms with change, the easier it will be for us to get comfortable with it. If you are having difficulty coping with change, read some change quotations. You will find that every grey cloud indeed has a silver lining!
Jesse Jackson: Both tears and sweat are salty, but they render a different result. Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Charles Kettering: The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.
Anatole France: All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Glenda Cloud: Change is inevitable, growth is intentional.
Washington Irving: There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in travelling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one’s position, and be bruised in a new place.
Mary S. Almanac: Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Peter F. Drucker: The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different.
Charles Kettering :If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong.
