There was a great complexity to my father. He was a devoted family man. But, in the same breath, he simply was not suited to an anchored life. He should have been somebody who had a backpack, an old map, a bit of change in his pocket and that was it - roaming the world.
– Christian Bale
There is the good and the bad, the great and the low, the just and the unjust. I swear to you that all that will never change.

– William James
The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being.
– Lech Walesa
– Robert H. Schuller
The reality of split government puts a premium on creativity within the administration. President Obama needs to put the right people in charge of the agencies and then have them push the bounds of administrative power to change policy through those agencies. President Obama has a pretty good track record of this.
– Eliot Spitzer
The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.
– R. D. Laing
The question, I've come to think, is not what inspires one to change, but what inspires one to remain changed.

The personal things should be left out of platforms at conventions. You can argue yourself blue in the face, and you're not going to change each other's minds. It's a waste of your time and my time.
– Barbara Bush
The Philippines is a terrible name, coming from Spain. Phillip II was the father of the inquisition, who I believe died of syphilis. It is my great regret that we didn't change the name of our country.

– Henry Rollins
– Larry David
The notion that Congress can change the meaning given a constitutional provision by the Court is subversive of the function of judicial review and it is not the less so because the Court promises to allow it only when the Constitution is moved to the left.
– Robert Bork
The new dynamics between brands and consumers, driven by social media, are proving to be a powerful impetus for change.
– Simon Mainwaring
The more specific idea of Evolution now reached is - a change from an indefinite, incoherent homogeneity to a definite, coherent heterogeneity, accompanying the dissipation of motion and integration of matter.

– Gloria Steinem
The fight is always the same within the Democratic Party, isn't it? The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Some people seem to understand this - that life and change take time - but I am not one of those people.
– Anne Lamott
– Paris Hilton
– Frank Luntz
Some argue that now isn't the time to push the green agenda - that all efforts should be on preventing a serious recession. That is a false choice. It fails to recognise that climate change and our carbon reliance is part of problem - high fuel prices and food shortages due to poor crop yields compound today's financial difficulties.
– Lucy Powell
So if one day the result becomes 3-3, for me it doesn't change my mind, because it's football, it's normal. What is not normal is that we haven't been scoring enough goals playing such good football as we've been playing in the last few weeks.
– Jose Mourinho
So I think it's - what was important to me is that I found that I can't change the fact that people already have made an opinion about me. But I don't think that should stop me from trying to correct some of the misperceptions that are out there.

Reconciliation requires changes of heart and spirit, as well as social and economic change. It requires symbolic as well as practical action.
– Malcolm Fraser
Really, each era has its own false nostalgia. We all put a picket fence up around something. For my generation it was the '50s, and for other generations it will be something else. Change is scary for everyone, as is complexity, contradiction, and an uncertain future.

President Obama's version of America is a divided one - pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed! We are not better off than we were 4 years ago, and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that.
