Change Quotes

Life is all about change, isn’t it? It is said that, Change is the only constant in Life. But the problem with most of us is that, we don’t like change. We just want life to be as it is. Only a few who accepts change are the ones who are constantly happy. Even many of the poor don’t want change. They dream about riches, and happiness, but they continue to do what they do hope that riches will fall into their life. But they will not take the steps to bring about the change in their life. These Change quotes are about this very problem. How to we learn to accept change? How to we prepare to change, and how willing are we to change.
