Changes Quotes A-Z by Author
It is not the strongest of the species that
survive, nor the most intelligent, but the
one most responsive to change.
Darwin - Knowledge
In the struggle for survival, the fittest
win out at the expense of their rivals because
they succeed in adapting themselves best
to their environment.
Darwin - Struggle
is concerned not with playing with the existing pieces but with seeking to change
those very pieces. It is concerned with the perception part of thinking. This
is where we organise the external world into the pieces we can then process.
de Bono - Thinking
Sometimes the situation is only a problem because it is looked at in a certain
way. Looked at in another way, the right course of action may be so obvious that
the problem no longer exists.
de Bono - Problems
It's through curiosity and looking at opportunities in new ways that we've
always mapped our path at Dell. There's always an opportunity to make a difference.
Dell - Success
Almost everybody today believes that nothing
in economic history has ever moved as fast
as, or had a greater impact than, the Information
Revolution. But the Industrial Revolution
moved at least as fast in the same time
span, and had probably an equal impact if
not a greater one.
Drucker - Technology
What we think determines what happens to
us, so if we want to change our lives, we
need to stretch our minds.
Dyer - Goals
When you're the first person whose beliefs
are different from what everyone else believes,
you're basically saying, "I'm right,
and everyone else is wrong." That's
a very unpleasant position to be in. It's
at once exhilarating and at the same time
an invitation to be attacked.
Ellison - Innovation
Think not of yourself as the architect of
your career but as the sculptor. Expect
to have to do a lot of hard hammering and
chiselingand scraping and polishing.
Forbes - Change
In their late 40s, Forbes mens' hormones
seem to change. Pop
started riding motorcycles. I would say
running for president qualifies.
Forbes - Change
In this business, by the time you realize
you're in trouble, it's too late to save
yourself. Unless you're running scared all
the time, you're gone.
Gates - Internet
A revolution in humanitys use of fossil
fuel-based energy would be necessary sooner
or later to sustain and to extend modern
standards of living. It will be required
sooner if we are to hold the risks of climate
change to acceptable levels. The costs that
we bear in making an early adjustment will
bring forward, and reduce for future times,
the costs of the inevitable eventual adjustment
away from fossil fuels.
Garnaut - Climate
Change - Emissions
Fuel - Risk
It's pretty incredible to look back 30 years
to when Microsoft was starting and realize
how work has been transformed. We're finally
getting close to what I call the digital
Gates - Technology
What great changes have not been ambitious?
Gates - Ambition
Everyone agrees that the failure of our
high schools is tragic. Its bad business,
and its bad policy. But we act as
if it cant be helped. It
can be helped. We designed these high schools;
we can redesign them.
Gates - Help
It's really one of my all-time favorite things to do. To go out and really
see the kids and visit the moms who are in these programs because I think I really
get to see what happens on the ground and connect with them about what changes
are that happen in their lives because of some of the giving that we're able to
Gates - Philanthropy
A leaf that is destined to grow large is full of grooves and wrinkles at
the start. Now if one has no patience and wants it smooth offhand like a willow
leaf, there is trouble ahead.
Wolfgang von Goethe - Change
What changed in the United States with Hurricane Katrina was a feeling that
we have entered a period of consequences.
Gore - Environmental
I'm a great believer in particularly being alert to changes that change something,
anything, by an order of magnitude, and nothing operates with the factors of 10
as profoundly as the Internet.
Grove - Change
doesn't change everything. It doesn't change supply and demand. It doesn't magically
allow you to build businesses by turning investors' money into operating expenses
indefinitely. The money always runs out eventually.. the Internet doesn't change
that, as we have seen.
Grove - Change
A corporation is a living organism; it has to continue to shed its skin.
Methods have to change. Focus has to change. Values have to change. The sum total
of those changes is transformation.
Grove - Change
Love is the biggest eraser there is. Love
erases even the deepest imprinting because
love goes deeper then anything. If you childhood
imprinting was very strong, and you keep
saying: "It's their fault. I can't
change," you stay stuck.
Hay - Love
I think that the major message of my life
and what I hope to be remembered for is
someone who managed to change the social
sexual values of his time absolutely.
Hefner - Life
The reason I entered the election race was to promote reforms. For us who
engage in business, we will be severely affected if financial and structural reforms
Horie - Politicians
I haven't changed. If it seems I'm becoming more mainstream, doesn't that
mean instead that Japan is aligning itself with me? I haven't changed one bit.
Horie - Change
I always had faith in the internet. I believed in it and thought it was obviously
going to change the way the world worked. I really did not understand why others
were selling their stock. As stock prices plunged, I just bought them, one after
another, since I had the money. I guess I was rather lucky.
Horie - Change
We react very quickly in the market. We can make quick changes.
Ilhan - Marketing
I'm an optimist. I've always believed the
future is going to be better than the past.
And I also believe I have a role in that.
The great thing about human beings, myself
in particular, is that I can change. I can
do better. If you can get up every day,
stay optimistic, and believe the future
is better than the past, those few things
get you through a lot of tough times.
Immelt - Belief
I've been seeing the change. It's been steady.
It's been more controlled than people think.
And my own belief is that China knows it
also needs to be part of the world, and
that it needs to be able to have trade with
Europe and the United
States in order to house and feed a
billion people. That's really kind of single-mindedly
what they see their role as being.
Immelt - Belief
I just started to see the world as it really
is and it completely shocked me and changed
my opinion on everything.. on life and my
values and certainly my own sense of self.
Jolie - Values
Awareness - Shock
If humanity has any hope of effecting real
change for the better, it will not come
from the Madison Avenue false reality makers
who've cast Barack
Obama as the savior of the world. To
alter our course from tyranny to liberty,
to defeat the corrupt elite, we must get
past the puppets and confront the real power
structure of the planet.
Jones - Humanity
Kennedy attempted to take the government
back from the back from the robber barons,
he was brutally murdered. The message to
president and leaders across the world
was clear: do as you're told, or die. John
Fitzgerald Kennedy was the last true president
of the United States. And until the globalists
are removed from power, we will never have
another real one.
Jones - Change
If there is anything that we wish to change
in the child, we should first examine it
and see whether it is not something that
could better be changed in ourselves.
Jung - Change
Change is the law of life. And those who
look only to the past or present are certain
to miss the future.
F. Kennedy - Change
We aren't going to let any mace stop us.
We are masters in our nonviolent movement
in disarming police forces; they don't know
what to do.
Luther King Jr - Police
Power properly understood is nothing but
the ability to achieve purpose. It is the
strength required to bring about social,
political and economic change.
Luther King Jr - Power
There is an immutable conflict at work in
life and in business, a constant battle
between peace and chaos. Neither can be
mastered, but both can be influenced. How
you go about that is the key to success.
Knight - Work
We needed to be uncompromising with our
workforce, to expect 100 percent of our
employees to comply 100 percent of the time
with complex and ever-changing government
mandates. Striving to comply with every
law does not mean agreeing with every law.
But, even when faced with laws we think
are counter-productive, we must first comply.
Only then, from a credible position, can
we enter into a dialogue with regulatory
agencies to demonstrate alternatives that
are more beneficial. If these efforts fail,
we can then join with others in using education
and/or political efforts to change the law.
Koch - Laws
When you think of the blur of all the brands
that are out there, the ones you believe
in and the ones you remember, like Chanel
and Armani, are the ones that stand for
something. Fashion is about establishing
an image that consumers can adapt to their
own individuality. And it's an image that
can change, that can evolve. It doesn't
reinvent itself every two years.
Lauren - Branding
I am not looking like Armani today and somebody
else tomorrow. I look like Ralph Lauren.
And my goal is to constantly move in fashion
and move in style without giving up what
Lauren - Branding
I'm just trying to make a smudge on the
Letterman - Change
I shall do less whenever I shall believe
what I am doing hurts the cause and I shall
do more whenever I shall believe doing more
will help the cause. I shall try to correct
errors when shown to be errors and I shall
adopt new views so fast as they shall appear
to be true views.
Lincoln - Belief
Synergies are something that the CEO basically has to force to happen, because
organizations are, generally, like bodies in motion that tend to stay in motion.
It's very hard to get big organizations to change. And it takes really a very
powerful mandate to force things to happen.
Malone - Management
Synergy is the driver. There are two levels of synergy: there are operating
synergies, which, you know, you'd have to be stupid not to try to take advantage
of, and then there are strategic synergies. In other words, in what positions
you would be more sustainable, more long term, and so on.
Malone - Change
College totally changed my life. It changed
what I believe and what I think about everything.
I majored in philosophy.
Martin - School
Between capitalist and communist society
there lies the period of the revolutionary
transformation of the one into the other.
Corresponding to this is also a political
transition period in which the state can
be nothing but the revolutionary dictatorship
of the proletariat.
Marx - Social
The philosophers have only interpreted the
world, in various ways. The point, however,
is to change it.
Marx - Change
Off goes the head of the king, and tyranny
gives way to freedom. The change seems abysmal.
Then, bit by bit, the face of freedom hardens,
and by and by it is the old face of tyranny.
Then another cycle, and another. But under
the play of all these opposites there is
something fundamental and permanent
the basic delusion that men may be governed
and yet be free.
L. Mencken - Government
In my experience, in the real-estate business
past success stories are generally not applicable
to new situations. We must continually reinvent
ourselves, responding to changing times
with innovative new business models.
Mori - Real
Estate - Success
We all are learning, modifying, or destroying
ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of
your ideas when the time is right is one
of the most valuable qualities you can acquire.
You must force yourself to consider arguments
on the other side.
Munger - Learning
We all have to expand our capabilities to
encompass the changing world, its growing
diversity and, indeed, its complexity.
Murdoch - Growth
