Change Quotes

Updated on March 2, 2014

What is Change?

Change is inevitable and occurs throughout a person's lifetime. It can be change for the better, or for the worse, depending on the affected individual's perception and willingness to change.

Change can be awkward because it takes a person out of their personal comfort zone. People that are unwilling or afraid to change often feel this way for fear of the unknown. Being flexible and allowing yourself to be open minded to change will always help make a smoother transition.

The older we get, the more changes we will be able to reflect on, both good and bad. Life is a journey and each day faces a new challenge for each individual. When times are at their worst, and you feel like giving up, read some good quotes to give you inspiration to help you through the tough times. Sometimes the simplest quotes can have a lot of meaning, like one favorite.... ~Never Give Up!~

      Change happens moment by moment. And moment by moment, we become both better and bitter. If we seem to welcome change because we see how beneficial it is, then we become better person feeling better and thinking better. On the other hand, wearing off old ways for the better may let other people feel bitter for the discomfort that may be brought by the change that we do. Just the same, when they realize that the change is necessary and beneficial, the bitter change will always make themselves feel better for learning life's lessons.
