Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Change is not made without inconvenience, even from worse to better.
There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse; as I have found in travelling in a stage-coach, that it is often a comfort to shift one's position and be bruised in a new place.
Don't ever take a fence down until you know the reason why it was put up.
There is no way to make people like change. You can only make them feel less threatened by it.
The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress. 
There is nothing permanent except change.
Times change and we change with them. 
There are two ways of spreading lights: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
If we don't change the direction we're going, we're likely to end up where we are headed. 
Ideas won't keep; something must be done about them.
We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee. 
The possibility that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.

The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.
To create real change in this world, you have to have a vision, and you have to have enormous perseverance. It's the same principle that applies in any entrepreneurial adventure: You've got to be too stupid to quit.
