Wayne Dyer - Goals - Change - Self Control

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.
Larry Ellison - Innovation - Belief - Change

A revolution in humanity’s 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.
Ross Garnaut - Climate Change - Emissions - Revolution - Energy - Fossil Fuel - Risk - Change - Sustainable

Everyone agrees that the failure of our high schools is tragic. It’s bad business, and it’s bad policy. But we act as if it can’t be helped.
It can be helped. We designed these high schools; we can redesign them.
Melinda Gates - Help - Failure - Change - Education

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 do.
Melinda Gates - Philanthropy - Change

Al 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.
Andrew Grove - Change - Internet


The Internet 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.
Andrew Grove - Change - Internet - Investing - Money

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.

Louise Hay - Love - Thinking - Childhood - Strength - Change - Motivational

Takafumi Horie - Change - Money - Internet - Stocks

We react very quickly in the market. We can make quick changes.
John Ilhan - Marketing - Change


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.
Jeffrey Immelt - Belief - Change - Optimist - Inspirational - Future - Past - Challenges

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.
Jeffrey Immelt - Belief - Change - Control - China - World - Trade - America - Survival - Europe

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.
Angelina Jolie - Values - World - Change - Opinions - Life - Self 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.

Alex Jones - Humanity - Change - Leadership
- Tyranny - Liberty - Elite - Corrupt - Power - World

When John Kennedy attempted to take the government back from the back from the robber barons, he was brutally murdered. The message to future US 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.
Alex Jones - Change - Elite - 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.
Philip Knight - Work - Life - Success - Change

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.
Charles Koch - Laws - Employee - Government - Change

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.
Ralph Lauren - Branding - Products - Consumer - Fashion - Change

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 I am.
Ralph Lauren - Branding - Fashion - Change - Goals

I'm just trying to make a smudge on the collective unconscious.
David Letterman - Change
- Unconscious

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.
Abraham Lincoln - Belief - Mistakes - Success - Change


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.
John Malone - Management - Change
- Power

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.
John Malone - Change - Improvement
- Long Term Investing

College totally changed my life. It changed what I believe and what I think about everything. I majored in philosophy.
Steve Martin - School - Education - Belief - Thinking - Change

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.
Karl Marx - Social - Capitalism - Communism - Change - Revolution - Politics - Proletariat - Class - Dictator


The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.
Karl Marx - Change - Philosophy - World


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.
H. L. Mencken - Government - Freedom - Change - Tyranny

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.
Akira Mori - Real Estate - Success - Change -
Innovation - Business

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.
Charlie Munger - Learning - Ideas
- Change

We all have to expand our capabilities to encompass the changing world, its growing diversity and, indeed, its complexity.
Lachlan Murdoch - Growth - Diversity - Change
- World
