You never change things
by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model
that makes the existing model obsolete.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Norman Vincent Peale
After you’ve done a thing the same way for two years,
look it over carefully.
After five years,
look at it with suspicion.
And after ten years,
throw it away and start all over.
Alfred Edward Perlman
Comment which appeared in the New York Times on July 3, 1958
When we are no longer able to change a situation,
we are challenged to change ourselves.
In any given moment we have two options:
to step forward into growth or step back into safety.
I alone cannot change the world,
but I can cast a stone across the waters
to create many ripples.
If you’re in a bad situation, don’t worry it’ll change.
If you’re in a good situation, don’t worry it’ll change.
Sido L. Ridolfi
Change is the law of life and those
who look only to the past or present
are certain to miss the future.
John F. Kennedy
Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world.
The pessimist complains about the wind;
the optimist expects it to change;
the realist adjusts the sails.
William Arthur Ward
