Quotes on change that could possibly ignite an engaging conversation:
“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers” (M. Scott Peck).
“After an argument, silence may mean acceptance or the continuation of resistance by other means” (Mason Cooley).
“The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress” (Charles Kettering).
“People don’t resist change. They resist being changed” (Peter Senge).
“When we see the need for deep change, we usually see it as something that needs to take place in someone else. In our roles of authority, such as parent, teacher, or boss, we are particularly quick to direct others to change. Such directives often fail, and we respond to the resistance by increasing our efforts. The power struggle that follows seldom results in change or brings about excellence. One of the most important insights about the need to bring about deep change in others has to do with where deep change actually starts” (Robert E. Quinn).
