You must welcome change as the rule but not as your ruler.
I put a dollar in one of those change machines. Nothing changed.

Few can accept happiness if it means change. We want the life we have now, only happier.
The man who never alters his opinion is like standing water, and breeds reptiles of the mind.
We spend our time searching for security and hate it when we get it.
Every possession and every happiness is but lent by chance for an uncertain time, and may therefore be demanded back the next hour.
There is no reason why the same man should like the same books at eighteen and forty-eight.
