The 43 All-Time Best Quotes On Change

Change Is Constant

Change is all around us. Change is inside of us. Change is all there is. At a cellular level we are changing every single second. On a psychological level we are changing every single moment. Yet many of us fear change. Change makes us uneasy. It hassles us at every corner, poking at us, annoying us. We feel like change happens when we finally get used to something. We even hate change to the core at times.

But changes helps us grow.

Change keeps us moving forward (hopefully). Change keeps us on our toes, rather than becoming complacent. Change gets us out of our comfort zones and opens up new doors for us. Change is good.
