Uplifting Quotes about Change and Growing Up

Change is something that many people do not handle well. Positive or negative, change carries with it a certain level of stress.

How we deal with that change, how we embrace it, and what we choose to learn from it, is up to us. Hopefully, these quotes can help you find that acceptance and gift that change can bring in your own life.

 

 

Quotes about Change In Life

1.) “No Work so great, but what admits decay,

No Act so glorious, but must fade away…

Old things must yield to New, Common to Strange,

Perpetual Motion, brings perpetual Change.” James Miller (1706–1744), Harlequin-Horace: Or, The Art of Modern Poetry, 1731

 

2.) “Who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.”- Harold Wilson

 

3.) “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.”- Anatole France

 

4.) “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”- Viktor Frankl

 

5.) “Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer.”- Shunryu Suzuki

 

6.) “If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.”- Mary Engelbreit

 

7.) “It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.”- W. Edwards Deming (Thanks, Michelle)

 

8.) “Every hour proves to us that change and decay are written upon all things earthly. As surely will the proudest monuments of human labor pass away, as the morning mist from among the hills. If we can look upon the past and behold the ravages of time, or on the present and not feel his powerful influence upon ourselves and the things around us, then indeed will our future be dark and cheerless.”- Charles Lanman, ‘Musings,’ 1840

 

9.) “You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.”- Denis Waitley

 

10.) “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.”- John A. Simone, Sr.

 

11.) “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.”- Washington Irving

 

12.) “When you are through changing, you are through.”- Bruce Barton

 

13.) “The man who looks for security, even in the mind, is like a man who would chop off his limbs in order to have artificial ones which will give him no pain or trouble.”- Henry Miller

 

14.) “Life is change.”- Heraclitus of Ephesus

 

15.) “Change is inevitable — except from a vending machine.”- Robert C. Gallagher

 

16.) “Faced with the choice between changing one’s mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.”- John Kenneth Galbraith

 

 

Quotes about Changing for the Better

 

17.) “What can we take on trust

in this uncertain life? Happiness, greatness,

pride — nothing is secure, nothing keeps.”- Euripides, Hecuba

 

18.) “They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.”- Confucius

 

19.) “It is a pleasant feeling to be the first to walk on sands which the tide has just left. It is like being the first to visit a new land. It produces a freshness of sensation something akin to that of early morning, or of spring. It is like entering upon a new stage of life, having a new world before us from which to receive, and upon which to make impressions.”- Henry James Slack (1818–1896), The Ministry of the Beautiful, ‘Conversation II: Footsteps on the Sand,’ 1850 [Lyulph speaking —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]

 

20.) “The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions.”- Ellen Glasgow

 

21.) “There were no violins or warning bells… no sense that my little life was about to change. But we never know, do we? Life turns on a dime.”- Stephen King, 11/22/63, 2011

 

22.) “Life is its own journey, presupposes its own change and movement, and one tries to arrest them at one’s eternal peril.”- Laurens van der Post

 

23.) “Growth is the only evidence of life.”- John Henry Newman, Apologia pro vita sua, 1864

 

24.) “The past is the present, and the present the future, to the non-progressive mind.”- James Lendall Basford (1845–1915), Sparks from the Philosopher’s Stone, 1882

 

25.) “Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.”- Faith Baldwin

 

26.) “The circumstances of the world are so variable that an irrevocable purpose or opinion is almost synonymous with a foolish one.”- William H. Seward

 

27.) “The birds are molting. If only man could molt also — his mind once a year its errors, his heart once a year its useless passions.”- James Allen

 

28.) “The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.”- William Blake

 

29.) “Man’s yesterday may ne’er be like his morrow;

Nought may endure but Mutability.”- Percy Bysshe Shelley, ‘Mutability’

 

30.) “You can avoid having ulcers by adapting to the situation: If you fall in the mud puddle, check your pockets for fish.”- Author Unknown

 

31.) “Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have retained of them.”- Marcel Proust

 

32.) “Stubbornness does have its helpful features. You always know what you are going to be thinking tomorrow.”- Glen Beaman

Morning and noon and night, sleeping and waking,

Summer and winter, always, always changing…”- James Henry, ‘Love,’ 1855 December 26th

41.) “What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.”- Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic’s Notebook, 1960

 

42.) “We would rather be ruined than changed;

We would rather die in our dread

Than climb the cross of the moment

And let our illusions die.” – W.H. Auden

 

43.) “You never have a friend all figured out. Just when you think you know what makes them tick, they tock.”- Robert Brault, rbrault.blogspot.com

 

44.) “All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward.”- Ellen Glasgow

 

 

Did any of these quotes about change resonate with you?

Many people do not handle any type of change well, and they prefer to live a life that is consistent and the same each day. This manages their anxiety, and assures them that they always know what’s coming next. The problem is that, life does not work like that.

Change is inevitable. It’s what makes us grow up. You never know when you – or your life – can change forever.
