Change is Such Hard Work.

The theme of this website is “the more things change…” I thought I’d return to my roots by sharing some thoughts on “change.”  This is not the kind of change you carry around in your pocket, but real, honest-to-goodness change, the type of change at which you have to work.

From poets, presidents, jokesters, songsters, hipsters, fashionistas, and others:

I put a dollar in one of those change machines. Nothing changed.

—  George Carlin

Change is such hard work.

—  Billy Crystal

Fashion changes, but style endures.

—  Coco Chanel

Change. Not always a pretty sight. In fact, it could get pretty ugly.

—  The Narrator, The Wonder Years

If you don’t change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?

—  W. Somerset Maugham

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

—  George Bernard Shaw

They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

—  Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol

We are the change we have been waiting for.

—  Barack Obama

If you want to make enemies, try to change something.

—  Woodrow Wilson

This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.

—  Taylor Swift

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.

—  Charles Darwin

One day spent with someone you love can change everything.

—  Mitch Albom, For One More Day
