27 Powerful Quotes About Change That Will Help You Embrace It

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.

You just can’t avoid change, no matter how hard you try. Change can be scary but it is necessary because it will help you grow. Although you might instinctively want to fight change, you have to learn when to just go with the flow and roll with the punches. Any major life change is hard but you will get past it — and it does get better.

I grew up in California and always dreamed of living in New York one day. I’m obsessed with broadway musicals and all I wanted was to be able to see them all the time. However, moving is terrifying and I was way too scared to leave my family and friends in California.

In my last year of high school, I applied to colleges and I was just too scared to apply to New York schools. As much as I wanted to go, …

Platforms

By JK

Platforms and I’m not talking about the shoes,
I’m writing about the people speaking who don’t have a clue

Platforms that were built on my L4 and L5,
giving me chronic back pain from all the verbal jive

Let’s expand on this privilege, the subject at hand,
this platform of yours where you make your grandstand

So absorbed in your spot that you place others in the dark,
never even a thought to appreciate their written art

What is an effort if not the effort to simply write,
judgmental of creativity where comes your insight

In the sixteen-hundreds, the rave was the selling of slaves,
all carried out on high from the platforms that was raised

A jumble of words is all that we saw,
yet 3/5ths of a man was written constitutional law

Words are intentions behind inventions
so next time you’re on that platform…

before I …

Anything for you, Love

Excerpt: With his favourite juice on his side, and his most preferred breakfast on the table, he smiled and said, “Babe you are the best, you made my weekend.”

The idea of marriage always fascinated Shirley – a fun loving, independent, strong headed person. The post marriage life, the avatar she’d take, the places she’d go with her man, the things they’d do together, all the things she saw, felt and believed would happen after marriage, always got her excited in her head. “I just can’t believe”, she murmured and opened her eyes to mute the alarm, it was 6:30 in the morning and for the first time a careless rebel woke up at once. Her alarm had a new entry now, “6:30” which it had not seen ever since she left school.

Waking up as a married woman now, she thought to herself, “did anything change” Well nothing except

11 Elon Musk Quotes That Will Make You Reconsider What Is Possible

When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.

It is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.

The first step is to establish that something is possible then probability will occur.

Patience is a virtue, and I’m learning patience. It’s a tough lesson.

I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.

Some people don’t like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.

If you get up in the morning and think the future is going to be better, it is a bright day. Otherwise, it’s not.

Life is too short for long-term grudges.

I take the position that I’m always to some degree wrong, and the aspiration is to be less wrong.

People should pursue what they’re passionate about. That

21 Quotes That Will Give You Courage When You Need It Most

Courage isn’t always easy to come by.

The entertainment industry is increasingly breeding these exalted heroines who seemingly effortlessly battle their way through every challenge without even batting an eyelash or smudging their mascara.

Whether it’s sword-swinging Alice, bow-bearing Katniss or bat-swinging Harley Quinn, many female protagonists are portrayed as these indestructible women overflowing with so much courage that they probably eat adversity for breakfast, crap bravery, and don’t need quotes about courage to get them moving.

What happened to their human flaws? Why are they portrayed as perfect? I call bull.


The fact is that finding courage in the face of adversity is sometimes really hard to come by. And that’s for anyone — men and women alike. This perfect woman who NEVER fears is just plain unrealistic.

REAL people are dynamic. REAL people have fear. REAL people get scared, hold themselves back and second-guess themselves. In reality, courage …

25 Abraham Lincoln Quotes to Make You Want to Be a Better Person

One of America’s greatest politicians, most respected and beloved personalities, Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States.

Lincoln’s story is a remarkable one. Born into a humble family with illiterate parents, he got from being a shopkeeper to holding the highest office. While being president, Lincoln led his people through the Civil War, the costliest war in the history of the U.S., and made major decisions on the Union war strategy. He fought for equal rights, liberty, and democracy. Those hard and bloody times led to the abolition of slavery and made the economy flourish.

Switching to merrier times, Abraham Lincoln was also the one to establish Thanksgiving as a national holiday. That big turkey wouldn’t have had the same appeal without Thanksgiving, would it?

From a great man of significant accomplishments, a big heart with a bigger voice, here are 25 Abraham Lincoln quotes to make …

22 Frederick Douglass Quotes to Make You Fight to Stop Ignorance From Prevailing

Frederick Douglass is widely known as one of the most vocal defenders of human rights in the anti-slavery movement.

Douglass’ ideological opposition to slavery began to take shape after he was taught to read and write. Education was banned for slaves, but in spite of this, his slaveholder Sophia Auld decided to teach him the alphabet when he was around the age of 12. Not long after, her husband forbade her from teaching, but that didn’t stop Douglass who continued to seek learning opportunities wherever they may arise.

Frederick Douglass went on to write several autobiographies — the most famous of which being Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass — openly describing his own experiences as a slave. Later on, he went on to become the first African-American citizen to hold a high U.S. government rank.

Even after the Civil War was over, Douglass continued his campaign against slavery …

If you’ve already been there, you’ll remember it fondly, and if you’re close to your graduation day, buckle up because you’re going to ride an emotional roller coaster.

Graduation day is a day filled with mixed feelings. You’re gonna be happy because you’ve finally made it; no more classes, no more teachers telling you what to do and no more exams. Maybe you’ll move from your parents’ house and that makes things even better (or so you think).

But you’re also going to get a bit anxious and start realizing that you’re going to miss your school days. Suddenly all those questions pop up – ‘Where do I go from here?’; ‘Will I be able to make it on my own?’; ‘Will I be as successful as I’ve always dreamed?’; ‘Do I even have a speech for all this?’.

Enjoy the day as much as you can because graduation will …

21 Bob Dylan Quotes to Help You Mold Your Own Way of Thinking

Bob Dylan is one of the most influential and complex artists of our times. He’s a singer, songwriter, musician, author and painter. His work dates back more than five decades and is mostly known for exploring social and political issues.

Dylan became the “voice of a generation” and sold over 100 million records, becoming one of the best-selling artists of all time.

His humble beginnings date back to performing folk and country songs at local cafés while he was still a student. That’s when he took the name ‘Bob Dillon’, which was inspired by the main character from a very popular Western TV series back then – Gunsmoke. Although many thought the pseudonym was inspired by the poet Dylan Thomas, Bob later said that it had nothing to do with it and that he actually dislikes the author.

In the early 2000s, Dylan decided to take a break from music …
