Quotations on Transformation
Whoever undertakes to create
soon finds himself engaged in creating himself.
Self-transformation and the transformation of others
have constituted the radical interest of our century,
whether in painting, psychiatry, or political action.
Harold RosenbergDividing Line
A consistent pursuit of classical physics
forces a transformation in the very heart of that physics.
Werner HeisenbergDividing Line
First comes thought;
then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans;
then transformation of those plans into reality.
The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.
Napolean HillDividing Line
Deep, unspeakable suffering may well be called a baptism,
a regeneration, the initiation into a new state.
Suffering can be likened to a baptism—
the passing over the threshold of pain and grief and anguish
to claim a new state of being.
George EliotDividing Line

Nature does not know extinction;
All it knows is transformation.

Wernher Von Braun
Dividing Line
Does the pain of one throbbing thorn matter if roses blossom around?
Some day the throb may convey to the petals
a tremor that will evoke in them dreams like the gentlest breath of spring.
Julia de BeausobreDividing Line
The call of death is a call of love.
Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative,
if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.
Hermann HesseDividing Line
... what we call the end of the living animal is no longer a true finis,
but a simple transformation, a transmutation of matter.
According to these irrefutable principles,
death is hence no more than a change of form,
an imperceptible passage from one existence into another.
Marquis de SadeDividing Line
The most minute transformation is like a pebble dropped into a still lake.
The ripples spread out endlessly.
EmmanuelDividing Line
Two men looked through the prison bars.
The one saw mud, the other stars.
AnonymousDividing Line
And so the mystery remains that we have sorrow so we can understand joy;
failure so we can recognized success; pain, so we can relish pleasure.
Somehow, built into the mystery of this duality in life
is a blueprint for growth that has the potential for shaping us...
Antoinette Bosco
Dividing Line
It is a paradox of life that some of the best people we ever meet
are those who have suffered a great deal.
Their lives are like still waters that run very deep.
There's a quality of inner goodness
that has been wrought through all the pain.
James Jones
