Quotation Saturday

1Cor.15: 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.
~James Gordon, M.D.

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.
~King Whitney Jr. 
There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.
~Nelson Mandela (1918 - ), 'A Long Walk to Freedom'
Nothing in the world is permanent, and we're foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we're still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. If change is of the essence of existence one would have thought it only sensible to make it the premise of our philosophy.
~W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965), The Razor's Edge, 1943
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
~Norman Vincent Peale(1898 - 1993)
Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis.
~Martha Beck, O Magazine, Growing Wings, January 2004
The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.
~Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121 AD - 180 AD), Meditations
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.
~Lynn Hall, Where Have All the Tigers Gone?, 1989


Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Galatians 4: 20 I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.
