Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, grow, grow.

To change and change for the better are two different things
Change yourself, change your fortunes.
People do no change with the times, they change the times.
Never change a winning game; always change a losing one.
The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
One must not attempt to justify them, but rather to sense their nature simply and clearly.
Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.
Always fall in with what you're asked to accept. Take what is given, and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with whatever's going. Not against: with.
Ah, when to the heart of man was it ever less than a treason to go with the drift of things to yield with a grace to reason and bow and accept at the end of a love or a season.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.
The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.
Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
Accept everything about yourself -- I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end -- no apologies, no regrets.
For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him.
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
Acceptance of others, their looks, their behaviors, their beliefs, bring you an inner peace and tranquillity -- instead of anger and resentment
Things don't change, but by and by our wishes change.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
If you want to win anything -- a race, your self, your life -- you have to go a little berserk.
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain -- and most fools do.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
I've met a few people who had to change their jobs in order to change their lives, but I've met many more people who merely had to change their motive to service in order to change their lives.
People who wait for changes to occur on the outside before they commit to making changes on the inside will never make any changes at all.
Change does not necessarily assure progress, but progress implacably requires change. Education is essential to change, for education creates both new wants and the ability to satisfy them.
Change occurs in direct proportion to dissatisfaction, but dissatisfaction never changes.
If you can't change your fate, change your attitude.
Prayer does not change God, but changes him who prays.
Everything changes, nothing remains without change.
Change is inevitable. Change is constant.
Times change, and we change with them.
We must accept life for what it actually is -- a challenge to our quality without which we should never know of what stuff we are made, or grow to our full stature.
