~ Quotations on "Blazes" ~
Suffering forces us to change.
We don't like change and most of the time we fear it and fight it.
We like to remain in emotionally familiar places
even through sometimes those places are not healthy for us.
On occasion, the suffering is so great that we have to give up.
We surrender the old and begin anew.
Often it is the pain we experience that leads us, not only to a different life,
but a richer and more rewarding one.
Dennis Wholey
A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us.
To live is to be slowly born.
Antoine de Saint Exupery
The most powerful thing you can do to change the world
is to change your own beliefs
about the nature of life, people, and reality to something more positive…
and begin to act accordingly.
Shakti Gawain

Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.

James Baldwin
Change is the end result of all true learning.
Leo Buscaglia
There is something in the pang of change
More than the heart can bear,
Unhappiness remembering happiness.
You change your life by changing your heart.
Max Lucado
Weep not that the world changes--did it keep
A stable, changeless state, 'twere cause indeed to weep.
William Cullen Bryant
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
To keep our faces toward change and
behave like free spirits in the presence of fate

is strength undefeatable.
Helen Keller
Man needs, for his happiness, not only the enjoyment of this or that,
but hope and enterprise and change.
Bertrand Russell
We cannot re-create the world...
We cannot even, truly re-create ourselves.
Only our behavior can we re-create,
or create anew.
Alice Walker
When we are no longer able to change a situation …
we are challenged to change ourselves.
Victor Frankl
At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done,
then they begin to hope that it can be done,
then they see that it can be done,
then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago.
Francis Hodgson Burnett
Autumn to winter, winter to spring,
Spring into summer, summer into fall.
So rolls the changing year, and so we change;
Motion so swift, we know not that we move.
Dinah Mulock Craik
The grand show is eternal.
It is always sunrise somewhere;
the dew is never dried all at once;

a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising.
Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming,
on sea and continents and islands,

each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
John Muir
In every crisis there is a message. 
Crises are nature's way of forcing change
breaking down old structures, shaking loose negative habits
so that something new and better can take their place.
Susan Taylor
Change is the law of life.
And those who look only to the past or present
are certain to miss the future.
John.F. Kennedy
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change,
that is the dominant factor in society today.

No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking
into account not only the world as it is,
but the world as it will be...
Isaac Asimov
Things do not change; we change.
Henry David Thoreau
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Gandhi
After a stormy period of mixed feelings of prolonged sadness,
there comes a calm.
After we become convinced that we are at the very brink of eternal despair,
or fear, or guilt, or sadness, we are given a reprieve.
We have a breathing space that eventually leads to whole days
that have personal value and offer us the opportunity for affection.
Then we recognize that no period of misery is endless and unrelenting;
it is instead, changeable.
Carol Staudacher

Change starts when someone sees the next step.
William Drayton

Like the mighty phoenix,
Once again I rise from the flames set to destroy me & take flight.
I am
