    Hi, I’ve just gone through your article on weekly positive quotes. I found it very interesting indeed. I love all the quotes about change, but mostly I loved the Friday quote which says: ” Be the change you wish to see in the world” It is simply true because you cannot want other people to do what you cannot do yet you recommend it. I loved your article very much and thanks for sharing it with us. I will be sharing it further too.

    This is a very interesting and though provoking post on quotes that might change or influence your life. At the end of the day, the only thing we actually have control over and can change, is ourselves. Which really brings to light the quote by Leo Tolstoy “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself”

      I agree with your thinking, in which you highlighted the Leo Tolstoy quote. Thanks for the kind words.

    HI there

    I enjoyed Dr Wayne Dwyers quote on change “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change”.  Its so true but so hard to do.  When we look at negativity and we feel down it is really difficult to change them all around and look at them in a different way.  But if we do – oh my word – what a difference.  It is important to talk about things with others to help us to change our perspective.

    “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no-one thinks of changing himself” and this basically means the same.  It is so easy to blame our environment or other people when things go wrong.

    Here is to a happy week of coping with change.

    Best wishes

      It is true that when it is most difficult for us, we should look at the circumstances from a different angle. Which requires a lot of inner strength from us. Thanks for your thoughts on these quotes.

      I wish you a wonderful week,

    Thank you for sharing these weeks quotes. I get the message is mostly about change. And specifically change yourself. To be honest that is something my life journey is focusing on a lot which is quite weird. My favorite quote is Monday’s one: “Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.” Basically if you alive, you must be willing to accept changes in life as nothing stays constant.

    “Pessimists are usually right and optimists are usually wrong but all the great changes have been accomplished by optimists.”

    This is true & I can attest to this. Oftentimes, those optimists are always willing to learn hence make a change!

    “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”

    Love this one. Often we get stuck because of our narrow perspective. When we change gears, that’s when the magic happens!
