Change Quotes

The Change Factor

Have you been looking for change quotes?

I wonder where your interest comes from.

Maybe you have been longing for change too, like so many of us.

Most of us have 'that' area.

That one, specific area of life that just keeps coming up, keeps bringing us, and maybe even those around us pain.

That one area that just 'never seems to change'.

You've maybe read all about it. Maybe you've tried several programs. You've disciplined yourself. You've tried it alone and in a team.  You've denied it, and you've tried to let it be.


Yet despite all, there is precious little change.

What makes change possible?

What makes for real transformation instead of a temporary modification?

         Is it possible to truly change, and if so, what brings about durable,            

long-lasting change?


The change quotes on this page serve as a catalyst for conversation about this topic. As we look at what many have said about change, we'll  also explore our own capacity to change. For real.

Change is possible.

Yet like so many who have gone before will say change is a process

 and it takes place one (baby) step at a time.
