Lately, I’ve been reflecting on “change” and just how hard it can be for some to accept but also how hard it is when you are the person making the changes or asking for changes that others do not want to accept.  These five quotes from the Quote Garden,  make me think about the change I have gone through on my eco-journey as well as the change I try for others to accept to embrace.

If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.  ~Mary Engelbreit

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.  ~Victor Frankl

Change is inevitable – except from a vending machine.  ~Robert C. Gallagher

The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.  ~William Blake

If you want to make enemies, try to change something.  ~Woodrow Wilson


  1. Those quotes are really great! I should use those whenever I come across someone stubborn to change to a greener lifestyle :).

  2. Is there anything more important than doing what we can to make sure there is a tomorrow, or least one worth doing it in?

  3. Nice compilation of quotes you have here. Change is really difficult to deal with and we can hurt some people in the process. But what if we are the ones who doesn’t like the change? How do we deal with it?
