Stop waiting for others to change. Recognize that every person has the right to be whatever they choose-even if you irritate yourself about it.Wayne Dyer Persons Change Sayings By Wayne Dyer: Stop waiting for others to change. Recognize that every person has the right to be
In a world where millions of human beings live in extreme poverty, die of malnutrition and lack medical care, where pandemics continue to kill, it is imperative to pursue good faith disarmament negotiations and to shift budgets away from weapons production, war-mongering, surveillance of private persons and devote available resources to address global challenges including humanitarian relief, environmental protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation, prevention of pandemics, and the development of a green economy.Alfred-Maurice De Zayas Persons Change Sayings By Alfred-Maurice De Zayas: In a world where millions of human beings live in extreme poverty, die of malnutrition
Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is predestined fate the author of your fortune or misfortune. Your subconscious impressions determine the conditions of your world. The subconscious is not selective; it is impersonal and no respecter of persons. The subconscious is not concerned with the truth or falsity of your feeling. It always accepts as true that which you feel to be true. Feeling is the assent of the subconscious to the truth of that which is declared to be true. Because of this quality of the subconscious there is nothing impossible to man. Whatever the mind of man can conceive and feel as true, the subconscious can and must objectify. Your feelings create the pattern from which your world is fashioned, and a change of feeling is a change of pattern.Neville Goddard Persons Change Sayings By Neville Goddard: Chance or accident is not responsible for the things that happen to you, nor is
One person can change the world.Rosa Parks Persons Change Sayings By Rosa Parks: One person can change the world.
Or we could change the definition in another way. We could remove the part of the definition that refers to "supernatural powers." Then sorcery and witchcraft would include beliefs that unknown persons harm others using techniques that cannot be demonstrated to be real or that are not observable. In the United States, Senator Joseph McCarthy played on people's fears in the 1950s by claiming that the government and Hollywood were filled with Communists dedicated to overturning all that Americans hold dear. In the 1980s and 1990s, various supremacists blamed certain political factions and minorities for social problems and what they believed to be the degeneration of their nation's values. Will there be other witch hunts in the twenty-first century?James Peoples Persons Change Sayings By James Peoples: Or we could change the definition in another way. We could remove the part of
Are we not all of us fanatics? I say only what you of the U.S.A. pretend you do not know. Attachments are of great seriousness. Choose your attachments carefully. Choose your temple of fanaticism with great care. What you wish to sing of as tragic love is an attachment not carefully chosen. Die for one person? This is a craziness. Persons change, leave, die, become ill. They leave, lie, go mad, have sickness, betray you, die. Your nation outlives you. A cause outlives you.David Foster Wallace Persons Change Sayings By David Foster Wallace: Are we not all of us fanatics? I say only what you of the U.S.A.
I could never be a politician. But as uncomfortable as I would be doing so, I have no problem with Obama's long-planned 'change of heart.' This dude's made huge, measurable strides for gay rights, and if being coy about his plans for gay marriage for a few years was needed to get him elected, then so be it. LGBT persons will be better off, and federal same-sex marriage recognition will come sooner because of it.Barack Obama Persons Change Sayings By Barack Obama: I could never be a politician. But as uncomfortable as I would be doing so,
Encouragement is awesome. It (can) actually change the course of another person's day, week, or life.Charles R. Swindoll Persons Change Sayings By Charles R. Swindoll: Encouragement is awesome. It (can) actually change the course of another person's day, week, or
A woman has the right to change her mind about having sex at any point of sexual contact. If her partner doesn't stop at the point or at the time she says no, then it's sexual assault, rape. Consent must be given every time two persons engage in sexual contact. Sex without consent is rape.S.A. David Persons Change Sayings By S.A. David: A woman has the right to change her mind about having sex at any point
The impact of climate change will fall disproportionately upon developing countries and the poor persons within all countries. It will therefore exacerbate inequalities in health status and access to adequate food, clean water and other resources.Rajendra K. Pachauri Persons Change Sayings By Rajendra K. Pachauri: The impact of climate change will fall disproportionately upon developing countries and the poor persons
One of the difficulties in bringing about change in an organization is that you must do so through the persons who have been most successful in that organization, no matter how faulty the system or the organization is. To such persons, you see, it is the best of all possible organizations, because look who was selected by it ad look who succeeded most in it. Yet, these are the very people through whom we must bring about improvements.George Washington Persons Change Sayings By George Washington: One of the difficulties in bringing about change in an organization is that you must
Because evangelicals view their primary task as evangelism and discipleship,1 they tend to avoid issues that hinder these activities. Thus, they are generally not counter-cultural. With some significant exceptions, they avoid "rocking the boat," and live within the confines of the larger culture. At times they have been able to call for and realize social change, but most typically their influence has been limited to alterations at the margins. So, despite having the subcultural tools to call for radical changes in race relations, they most consistently call for changes in persons that leave the dominant social structures, institutions, and culture intact. This avoidance of boat-rocking unwittingly leads to granting power to larger economic and social forces. It also means that evangelicals' views to a considerable extent conform to the socioeconomic conditions of their time.Christian Smith Persons Change Sayings By Christian Smith: Because evangelicals view their primary task as evangelism and discipleship,1 they tend to avoid issues
Dylan never met anyone who wasn't about to change immediately into someone else. His was a special talent for encountering persons about to shed one identity or disguise for another.Jonathan Lethem Persons Change Sayings By Jonathan Lethem: Dylan never met anyone who wasn't about to change immediately into someone else. His was
If you want to change a person, you've got to change the situation.Philip Zimbardo Persons Change Sayings By Philip Zimbardo: If you want to change a person, you've got to change the situation.
The existence of a different value system among these persons is evinced by the communality of behavior which occurs when illiterates interact among themselves. Not only do they change from unexpressive and confused individuals, as they frequently appear in larger society, to expressive and understanding persons within their own group, but moreover they express themselves in institutional terms. Among themselves they have a universe of response. They form and recognize symbols of prestige and disgrace; evaluate relevant situations in terms of their own norms and in their own idiom: and in their interrelations with one another, the mask of accommodative adjustment drops.Erving Goffman Persons Change Sayings By Erving Goffman: The existence of a different value system among these persons is evinced by the communality
Look around you. Look back. This is what I want to tell my daughters, the message I wish to leave behind. Be grateful, but not too grateful for fragments of the rights due all persons. Remember, justice and change comes hard and slow. Remember, you will have many mothers in this life besides me, all of them flawed. Judge them, judge me, but not too harshly. Carry on, my girls, but guard yourself against the irrational defeats that may yet come.Mary Volmer Persons Change Sayings By Mary Volmer: Look around you. Look back. This is what I want to tell my daughters, the
I cannot change another person. I let others be who they are, and I simply love who I am.Louise Hay Persons Change Sayings By Louise Hay: I cannot change another person. I let others be who they are, and I simply
It is not possible for any thinking person to live in such a society as our own without wanting to change it.George Orwell Persons Change Sayings By George Orwell: It is not possible for any thinking person to live in such a society as
Preachers and counselors can spend their energy exhorting people to change their behavior. But the human will is not a free entity. It is bound to a person's understanding. People will do what they believe. Rather than making a concerted effort to influence choices, preachers first need to be influencing minds. When a person understands who Christ is, on what basis he is worthwhile, and what life is all about, he has the formulation necessary for any sustained change in lifestyle. Christians who try to "live right" without correcting a wrong understanding about how to meet personal needs will always labor and struggle with Christianity, grinding out their responsible duty in a joyless, strained fashion. Christ taught that when we know the truth, we can be set free. We now are free to choose the life of obedience because we understand that in Christ we now are worthwhile persons. We are free to express our gratitude in the worship and service of the One who has met our needs.Larry Crabb Persons Change Sayings By Larry Crabb: Preachers and counselors can spend their energy exhorting people to change their behavior. But the
Only it was complicated, she wasn't thinking only of herself but me too, since we'd both been through so many of the same things, she and I, and we were an awful lot alike - too much. And because we'd both been hurt so badly, so early on, in violent and irremediable ways that most people didn't, and couldn't, understand, wasn't it a bit ... precarious? A matter of self-preservation? Two rickety and death-driven persons who would need to lean on each other quite so much? not to say she wasn't doing well at the moment, because she was, but all that could change in a flash with either of us, couldn't it? the reversal, the sharp downward slide, and wasn't that the danger? since our flaws and weaknesses were so much the same, and one of us could bring the other down way too quick? and though this was left to float in the air a bit, I realized instantly, and with some considerable astonishment, what she was getting at.Donna Tartt Persons Change Sayings By Donna Tartt: Only it was complicated, she wasn't thinking only of herself but me too, since we'd
It is indeed possible to change your view of the universe from indifferent to friendly. I have helped thousands of persons make this transition in my workshops.Srikumar Rao Persons Change Sayings By Srikumar Rao: It is indeed possible to change your view of the universe from indifferent to friendly.
The only person I can change is the one in the mirror.Russell Wilson Persons Change Sayings By Russell Wilson: The only person I can change is the one in the mirror.
I dislike persons who change their basic ideas, and I dislike them when they change them for good reasons quite as much as when they change them for bad ones. A convert to a good idea is simply a man who confesses that he was formerly an ass - and is probably one still. When such a man favors me with a certificate that my eloquence has shaken him I feel about him precisely as I'd feel if he told me that he had started (or stopped) beating his wife on my recommendation.H.L. Mencken Persons Change Sayings By H.L. Mencken: I dislike persons who change their basic ideas, and I dislike them when they change
You can't help but change a little bit, but on the inside I'm still completely the same person.Britney Spears Persons Change Sayings By Britney Spears: You can't help but change a little bit, but on the inside I'm still completely
History is change happening one person at a time.Matt Damon Persons Change Sayings By Matt Damon: History is change happening one person at a time.
Capital can seldom be made productive, without undergoing several changes both of form and of place, the risk of which is always more or less alarming to persons unaccustomed to the operations of industry; whereas, on the contrary, landed property produces without any change of either quality or position.Jean-Baptiste Say Persons Change Sayings By Jean-Baptiste Say: Capital can seldom be made productive, without undergoing several changes both of form and of
Rome was in the most dangerous inclination to change on account of the unequal distribution of wealth and property, those of highest rank and greatest spirit having impoverished themselves by shows, entertainments, ambition of offices, and sumptuous buildings, and the riches of the city having thus fallen into the hands of mean and low-born persons. So that there wanted but a slight impetus to set all in motion, it being in the power of every daring man to overturn a sickly commonwealth.Plutarch Persons Change Sayings By Plutarch: Rome was in the most dangerous inclination to change on account of the unequal distribution
Up until the 1950s the subject of the missionary movement was referred to as "missions" in the plural form. In fact, the term "missions" was first used in its current context by the Jesuits in the sixteenth century. But the International Missionary Council discussions in the 1950s on the missio- Dei convinced most that the mission of the Triune God was prior to any of the number of missions by Christians during the two millennia of church history. Consequently, since there was only one mission, the plural form has dropped out of familir usage and the singular form, "mission," has replaced it for the most part. Nevertheless, most churches and lay-persons hang on the plural missions. For that reason, and to make our point clear here, we will refer to it in this work from time to time while alerting believers to the coming change.Walter C. Kaiser Jr. Persons Change Sayings By Walter C. Kaiser Jr.: Up until the 1950s the subject of the missionary movement was referred to as "missions"
Plain horse sense ought to tell us that anything that makes no change in the man who professes it makes no difference to God either, and it is an easily observable fact that for countless numbers of persons the change from no-faith to faith makes no actual difference in the life.Kevin DeYoung Persons Change Sayings By Kevin DeYoung: Plain horse sense ought to tell us that anything that makes no change in the
You can't get on with the rest of your life if you are forever taking your spectacles off and inspecting them; indeed, one of the problems with spectacles is that if you break them you may not be able to see properly in order to mend them yourself. So it is with worldviews: when you are questioned about some or all of your worldview, and you have (as it were) to take it off and look at it in order to see what's going on, you may not be able to examine it very closely because it is itself the thing through which you normally examine everything else. The resulting sense of disorientation can be distressing. It can lead to radical change. It shakes the very foundation of persons and societies. Sometimes, it seems, it can turn persecutors into apostles ...N. T. Wright Persons Change Sayings By N. T. Wright: You can't get on with the rest of your life if you are forever taking
How different the world would be if each parent could say to the child: "Who you are is terrific, all you are meant to be. And who you are, as you are, is loved by all of us. You have a source within, which is the soul, and it will express itself to you through what we call desire. Always respect the well-being of the other, but live your own journey, serve that desire, risk being that which wishes to enter the world through you, and you will always have our love, even if your path takes you away from us." Such persons would then have a powerful tool to enable them to change their lives when it was not working out for them. Such persons would be able to make difficult decisions, mindful always of the impact on others, but also determined to live the life intended by the gods who brought us here.James Hollis Persons Change Sayings By James Hollis: How different the world would be if each parent could say to the child: "Who
You never know when a helping hand will change another person's entire life.Zig Ziglar Persons Change Sayings By Zig Ziglar: You never know when a helping hand will change another person's entire life.
The tribe of clerks was an obvious one ... the junior clerks of flash houses
young gentlemen with tight coats, bright boots, well-oiled hair, and supercilious lips. Setting aside a certain dapperness of carriage, which may be termed [i]deskism[/i] for want of a better word, the manner of these persons seemed to be an exact fac-simile of what had been the perfection of [i]bon ton[/i] about twelve or eighteen months before.
Edgar Allan Poe Persons Change Sayings By Edgar Allan Poe: The tribe of clerks was an obvious one ... the junior clerks of flash housesyoung
It only takes one person to make a change ... Let it begin with you.Joyce Thompson Persons Change Sayings By Joyce Thompson: It only takes one person to make a change ... Let it begin with you.
Those persons are happiest in this restless and mutable world who are in love with change, who delight in what is new simply because it differs from what is old; who rejoice in every innovation, and find a strange alert pleasure in all that is, and that has never been before.Agnes Repplier Persons Change Sayings By Agnes Repplier: Those persons are happiest in this restless and mutable world who are in love with
Dreams change, yes, that makes sense, but I didn't know dreams could hide inside a person.Jandy Nelson Persons Change Sayings By Jandy Nelson: Dreams change, yes, that makes sense, but I didn't know dreams could hide inside a
It's funny how life can change so much but still nothing changes at all. Or maybe it's that life changes, but you as a person don't or maybe we adjust, but don't actually change.Lights Persons Change Sayings By Lights: It's funny how life can change so much but still nothing changes at all. Or
We change from the awakening questing creatures we were once, afire with wonder, and expectancy, and doubt, to persons of opinion and authority, our habits formed, our characters moulded in a patternDaphne Du Maurier Persons Change Sayings By Daphne Du Maurier: We change from the awakening questing creatures we were once, afire with wonder, and expectancy,
After all, acknowledging unfairness then calls decent people forth to correct those injustices. And since most persons are at their core, decent folks, the need to ignore evidence of injustice is powerful: To do otherwise would force whites to either push for change (which they would perceive as against their interests) or live consciously as hypocrites who speak of freedom and opportunity but perpetuate a system of inequality.Tim Wise Persons Change Sayings By Tim Wise: After all, acknowledging unfairness then calls decent people forth to correct those injustices. And since
Based on technological research and the transformation of nature, industrialization constantly goes forward, giving proof of incessant creativity. While certain enterprises develop and are concentrated, others die or change their location. Thus new social problems are created: professional or regional unemployment, redeployment and mobility of persons, permanent adaptation of workers and disparity of conditions in the different branches of industry.Pope Paul VI Persons Change Sayings By Pope Paul VI: Based on technological research and the transformation of nature, industrialization constantly goes forward, giving proof
Easter is the miracle of transformation as seen in the change of seasons, in the maturation of mortal persons, and in the resurrection of souls.Richelle E. Goodrich Persons Change Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: Easter is the miracle of transformation as seen in the change of seasons, in the
In all provinces of life, it is unhappily the case, that whatever is to be accomplished by a number of co-operating men and circumstances cannot long continue perfect. Of an acting company as well as of a kingdom, of a circle of friends as well as of an army, you may commonly select the moment when it may be said that all was standing on the highest pinnacle of harmony, perfection, contentment, and activity. But alterations will ere long occur; the individuals that compose the body often change; new members are added; the persons are no longer suited to the circumstances, or the circumstances to the persons; what was formerly united quickly falls asunder.Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Persons Change Sayings By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: In all provinces of life, it is unhappily the case, that whatever is to be
How long shall we blunder along without the aid of unpartisan and authoritative scientific assistance in the administration of justice, no one knows; but all fair persons not conventionalized by provincial legal habits of mind ought, I should think, unite to effect some change.Learned Hand Persons Change Sayings By Learned Hand: How long shall we blunder along without the aid of unpartisan and authoritative scientific assistance
If you want somebody to change so much, what is it that you love about that person ?Yasmin Ahmad Persons Change Sayings By Yasmin Ahmad: If you want somebody to change so much, what is it that you love about
The key elements in the art of working together are how to deal with change, how to deal with conflict, and how to reach our potential ... the needs of the team are best met when we meet the needs of individual persons.Max De Pree Persons Change Sayings By Max De Pree: The key elements in the art of working together are how to deal with change,
Susceptible persons are more affected by a change of tone that by unexpected words.George Eliot Persons Change Sayings By George Eliot: Susceptible persons are more affected by a change of tone that by unexpected words.
You don't become a new person by changing your behavior; you discover who you are in Christ and your behavior changes accordinglyGraham Cooke Persons Change Sayings By Graham Cooke: You don't become a new person by changing your behavior; you discover who you are

If you change the right mind, then that person can perhaps change the world.Paul Haggis Persons Change Sayings By Paul Haggis: If you change the right mind, then that person can perhaps change the world.
Practically all of the successful Negroes in this country are of the uneducated type or of that of Negroes who have had no formal education at all. The large majority of the Negroes who have put on the finishing touches of our best colleges are all but worthless in the development of their people. If after leaving school they have the opportunity to give out to Negroes what traducers of the race would like to have it learn such persons may thereby earn a living at teaching or preaching what they have been taught but they never become a constructive force in the development of the race. The so-called school, then, becomes a questionable factor in the life of this despised people. As another has well said, to handicap a student by teaching him that his black face is a curse and that his struggle to change his condition is hopeless is the worst sort of lynching. It kills one's aspirations and dooms him toCarter G. Woodson Persons Change Sayings By Carter G. Woodson: Practically all of the successful Negroes in this country are of the uneducated type or
God, in eternity, exists in a dynamic mutuality co-equally and co-eternally - three "modes of being" or "persons" and yet one essence. It is a dynamic, fluid movement that does not change in essence.Tobin Wilson Persons Change Sayings By Tobin Wilson: God, in eternity, exists in a dynamic mutuality co-equally and co-eternally - three "modes of
In what touches their social convictions, most persons do not think. The threat of change, with all it suggests to them in the loss of social and economic privilege, alarms so deeply that they are incapable of unprejudiced thought. They seem to themselves to be thinking, with lucidity and fairness, but since they start from the conviction that change must undoubtedly be for the worse or from settled grief at the thought of losing what is old and lovely, they are doing no more than following a logical sequence of ideas from a false premise.Storm Jameson Persons Change Sayings By Storm Jameson: In what touches their social convictions, most persons do not think. The threat of change,
You can have more, be more and do more because you can change the person you are.Brian Tracy Persons Change Sayings By Brian Tracy: You can have more, be more and do more because you can change the person

Time heals griefs and quarrels, for we change and are no longer the same persons. Neither the offender nor the offended are any more themselves.Blaise Pascal Persons Change Sayings By Blaise Pascal: Time heals griefs and quarrels, for we change and are no longer the same persons.
Mingus Rude, Arthur Lomb, Gabriel Stern and Tim Vandertooth, even Aaron K. Doily: Dylan never met anyone who wasn't about to change immediately into someone else. His was a special talent for encountering persons about to shed one identity or disguise for another. He took it in stride by now.Jonathan Lethem Persons Change Sayings By Jonathan Lethem: Mingus Rude, Arthur Lomb, Gabriel Stern and Tim Vandertooth, even Aaron K. Doily: Dylan never
It is essential to love that it be, not a focus of two persons on each other, but of two persons on the same thing external to them both.

Although it has always been on offer, God's love cannot really be experienced unless or until one works side by side with him at transforming the world--unless or until one has confronted real affliction with him ("suffer[ed] with him,' Paul says in Romans 8:17) while tackling the task of remodeling the world (in what Paul calls, again in Romans 8:17, being "joint-heirs with Christ").

Love, in other words, has to be understood as more than a mere emotion; it is a way of being together in the world or, better, a way of working together to change the world.

What begins as a kind of instrumentality--I hope only to be a toll in God's hands--eventually becomes a very real partnership, ideally bound by covenant.
Joseph M. Spencer Persons Change Sayings By Joseph M. Spencer: It is essential to love that it be, not a focus of two persons on
You are the only person you can actually changeKatharine Hepburn Persons Change Sayings By Katharine Hepburn: You are the only person you can actually change
Young persons, because of their immaturity, may not fully comprehend the consequences of their actions and should therefore benefit from less severe sanctions than adults. More importantly, it reflects the firm belief that young persons are more susceptible to change, and thus have a greater potential for rehabilitation than adults.Mary Robinson Persons Change Sayings By Mary Robinson: Young persons, because of their immaturity, may not fully comprehend the consequences of their actions
Wells-Barnett's experience with the ways that lynching victims were criminalized, and her progressive belief in the ability of persons to change for the better, gave her another perspective.Paula J.

The careless, the lukewarm Catholics should, above all, dread hell, for he is continually walking on the brink of the infernal abyss. He makes little of the precepts of hearing Mass, of the prescribed abstinence from flesh meat, he scruples not neglecting the religious training of his children, he associates with persons and frequents places that are to him an occasion of sin, he yields to impure thoughts, commits sins of impurity without remorse, gives way to his vindictive feelings against his neighbor, indulges in excess in eating and drinking, neglects prayer and the sacraments. Now is the time for him to be aroused from his life of sin, now is the time for him to give up sin and change his life, for if he defers doing so, it may soon be to late. This may, indeed, be the last warning that God gives him.Fr. Martin Von Cochem Persons Change Sayings By Fr. Martin Von Cochem: The careless, the lukewarm Catholics should, above all, dread hell, for he is continually walking

As Thomas Gordon pointed out, 'Parents who find unacceptable a great many things that their children do or say will inevitably foster in these children a deep feeling that they are unacceptable as persons.' That doesn't change just because the parents remember to say soothingly, 'We love you, honey; we just hate almost everything you do.Alfie Kohn Persons Change Sayings By Alfie Kohn: As Thomas Gordon pointed out, 'Parents who find unacceptable a great many things that their

I have learned that I will not change the world, Jesus will do that. I can however, change the world for one person. I can change the world for fourteen little girls and for four hundred schoolchildren and for a sick and dying grandmother and for a malnourished, neglected, abused five-year old. And if one persons sees the love of Christ in me, it is worth every minute. In fact, it is worth spending my life for.Katie J. Davis Persons Change Sayings By Katie J.

Every person is the right person to act. Every moment is the right moment to begin.Jonathan Schell Persons Change Sayings By Jonathan Schell: Every person is the right person to act. Every moment is the right moment to
[Abusers] blame the world - circumstances, other people - for their defeats, misfortune, misconduct, and failures. The abuser firmly believes that his life is swayed by currents and persons over which he has no influence whatsoever (he has an external locus of control).

But there are even subtler variants of this psychological defense mechanism. Not infrequently an abuser will say: "I made a mistake because I am stupid", implying that his deficiencies and inadequacy are things he cannot help having and cannot change. This is also an alloplastic defense because it abrogates responsibility.

Many abusers exclaim: "I misbehaved because I completely lost my temper." On the surface, this appears to be an autoplastic defense with the abuser assuming responsibility for his misconduct. But it could be interpreted as an alloplastic defense, depending on whether the abuser believes that he can control his temper.
Sam Vaknin Persons Change Sayings By Sam Vaknin: [Abusers] blame the world - circumstances, other people - for their defeats, misfortune, misconduct, and
If we apply our minds directly and competently to the needs of the earth, then we will have begun to make fundamental and necessary changes in our minds. We will begin to understand and to mistrust and to change our wasteful economy, which markets not just the produce of the earth, but also the earth's ability to produce. We will see that beauty and utility are alike dependent upon the health of the world. But we will also see through the fads and the fashions of protest. We will see that war and oppression and pollution are not separate issues, but are aspects of the same issue. Amid the outcries for the liberation of this group or that, we will know that no person is free except in the freedom of other persons, and that man's only real freedom is to know and faithfully occupy his place - a much humbler place than we have been taught to think - in the order of creation.
(pg.89, "Think Little")
Wendell Berry Persons Change Sayings By Wendell Berry: If we apply our minds directly and competently to the needs of the earth, then
No one can play a game alone. One cannot be human by oneself. There is no selfhood where there is no community. We do not relate to others as the persons we are; we are who we are in relating to others. Simultaneously the others with whom we are in relation are themselves in relation. We cannot relate to anyone who is not also relating to us. Our social existence has, therefore, an inescapably fluid character ... this ceaseless change does not mean discontinuity; rather change is itself the very basis of our continuity as persons.James P. Carse Persons Change Sayings By James P. Carse: No one can play a game alone. One cannot be human by oneself. There is
Making one person smile can change the world - maybe not the whole world, but their world.John Spence Persons Change Sayings By John Spence: Making one person smile can change the world - maybe not the whole world, but
We cannot make another person change his or her steps to an old dance, but if we change our own steps, the dance no longer can continue in the same predictable pattern.Harriet Lerner Persons Change Sayings By Harriet Lerner: We cannot make another person change his or her steps to an old dance, but
The greatest mistake is to think that we ever know why we do things ... I suppose the nearest we can ever come to it is by getting what old people call 'experience.' But by the time we've got that we're no longer the persons who did the things we no longer understand. The trouble is, I suppose, that we change every moment; and the things we did stay.Edith Wharton Persons Change Sayings By Edith Wharton: The greatest mistake is to think that we ever know why we do things ...
