The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 12:2 (KJV)
When you are finished changing, you're finished.
If you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always gotten.
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
John F. Kennedy

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw
When we cannot act as we wish, we must act as we can.

Leon C. Megginson
Adaptability to change is itself a hallmark of successful education.
Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?
Isaiah 43:18-19 (KJV)
If you can't solve the problem, manage it.
If we wish a change to be as radical as possible, we have to apply the remedy in small doses, but unremittingly, for long periods. Can a great action be accomplished all at once?
You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
Be willing to shed parts of your previous life.
