Transformation quotes by Peter A. Levine
#1. In moving through apprehensive chills to mounting excitement and waves of moist tingling warmth, the body, with its innate capacity to heal, melts the iceberg created by deeply frozen trauma. Anxiety and despair can become creative wellspring when we allow ourselves to experience bodily sensations, such as trembling, that stem from traumatic symptoms. Held within the symptoms of trauma are the very energies, potentials, and resources necessary for their constructive transformation. The creative healing process can be blocked in a number of ways - by using drugs to suppress symptoms, by overemphasizing adjustment or control, or by denial or invalidation of feelings and sensations. #Quote by Peter A. Levine
Transformation quotes by Auliq Ice
#2. If this planet is to be transformed for the better, then we as individuals must first transform ourselves. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Transformation quotes by Carl Schmitt
#3. The transformation of the community into an administrative state responsible for total social welfare leads to a paternal totality without a house-father when it fails to find any archy or cracy that is more than a mere nomos of distribution and production.
I consider it to be a utopia when Friedrich Engels promises that one day all power of men over men will cease, that there will be only production and consumption with no problems, and that "things will govern themselves." This things-governing-themselves will make every archy and cracy super­fluous , and demonstrate that mankind at last has found its formula, just as, according to Dostoyevsky, the bees found their formula in the beehive, because animal s, too, have their nomos. Most of those who swarm around a nomos basileus fail to notice that, in reality, they propagate just such a formula. #Quote by Carl Schmitt
Transformation quotes by Susan Neiman
#4. Kitsch is much more than a question of style; it's a preference for consolation over truth. Disney's version of reality is not just cleaned up, it's pernicious. Unlike the best forms of art and philosophy, it undercuts the possibility of transformation because it portrays a world that's just fine as it is
or as it will be by the time the credits come up. #Quote by Susan Neiman
Transformation quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#5. If you truly wish to change what is without, you must first change what festers within. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Transformation quotes by Benjamin Suulola
#6. Two categories of people can be found in the world today. There are those who make things happen and there are those who watch things happen. A spectator watch things happen while a player make things happen. In the same vein, history writers watch things happen and history makers make things happen. This is why history writers are always at the mercy of history makers. #Quote by Benjamin Suulola
Transformation quotes by Atul Gawande
#7. In a sense, the advances of modern medicine have given us two revolutions: we've undergone a biological transformation of the course of our lives and also a cultural transformation of how we think about that course. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Transformation quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#8. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Transformation quotes by Joel S. Goldsmith
#9. The reason that you cannot feel any progress in yourself is that you cannot feel spiritual. There is no such thing as a person's feeling spiritual. That is as impossible as feeling that you are honest or feeling that you are moral. #Quote by Joel S. Goldsmith
Transformation quotes by Mariah Carey
#10. I'm not one of those people that goes into details of my personal life on national TV to get attention. Some things are better left unsaid. #Quote by Mariah Carey
Transformation quotes by Christopher J.H. Wright
#11. If our mission is to share good news, we need to be good news people. If we preach transformation, we need to show some evidence of what transformation looks like. #Quote by Christopher J.H. Wright
Transformation quotes by Richard Rohr
#12. People who have been initiated "broke through in what felt like breaking down". #Quote by Richard Rohr
Transformation quotes by Lillie Langtry
#13. A complete transformation seemed to have place in my life overnight. It was quite staggering, and thenceforward visitors and invitations continued to pour in daily until they became a source of grievance to our landlady, who was obliged to engage an extra servant to respond to the battering of powdered footmen on her humble and somewhat flimsy door. #Quote by Lillie Langtry
Transformation quotes by Caroline Adams Miller
#14. Your life is a sacred journey. It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path ... exactly where you are meant to be right now ... And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love. #Quote by Caroline Adams Miller
Transformation quotes by Zeena Schreck
#15. The god Seth awakens through harsh disillusionment or scorn or through the shattering of everything that you thought was real being torn from you. #Quote by Zeena Schreck
Transformation quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#16. War is the spectacular and bloody projection of our everyday living. We precipitate war out of our daily lives; and without a transformation in ourselves, there are bound to be national and racial antagonisms, the childish quarreling over ideologies, the multiplication of soldiers, the saluting of flags, and all the many brutalities that go to create organized murder. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Transformation quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#17. If we in Nigeria and Africa generally are to experience a true national transformation, we must purposefully begin a campaign for national reorientation. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Transformation quotes by Aspen Matis
#18. Already, this little-walked gigantic trail through my country's Western wilderness held in my mind the promise of escape from myself, the liberation only a huge transformation could grant me. This walk would be my salvation. It had to be. #Quote by Aspen Matis
Transformation quotes by Diane L. Dunton
#19. ...reflection can transform something familiar. #Quote by Diane L. Dunton
Transformation quotes by Martin Heidegger
#20. To this man, who overcomes himself, Nietzsche gives a name which is easily misunderstood. He calls him 'the superman'. But Nietzsche does not mean a type who casts off 'humanity,' to make sheer caprice the law and titanic rage the rule. The superman is the man who first leads the essential nature of existing man over into its truth, and so assumes that truth. Existing man, by being thus determined and secured, in his essential nature, is to be rendered capable of becoming the future master of the earth - of wielding to high purpose the powers that will fall to future man in the nature of the technological transformation of the earth and of human activity. The essential figure of this man, the superman rightly understood, is not a product of an unbridled and degenerate imagination rushing headlong into the void. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Transformation quotes by Nhat Hanh
#21. The way must be in you; the destination also must be in you and not somewhere else in space or time. If that kind of self-transformation is being realized in you, you will arrive. #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Transformation quotes by Ram Dass
#22. Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation.
Use it! #Quote by Ram Dass
Transformation quotes by Payne Hawthorne
#23. My past was nothing, my future was nothing, and I was nothing other than a quivering pile of useless flesh. He animated my corpse, cleansed my soul, and offered me forgiveness when I hadn't yet apologized. He took and took and took as he slid himself deeper and deeper into my body, penetrating my soul. When he finally left me, spent and waning, he'd taken away all of my hurt and despair and had replaced it with a longing to please and serve, love and worship, fuck and suck, cook and clean, whatever he wanted, I craved to be. This man was now so deeply inside me I had no idea where he ended and I began, and I knew this transformation was for eternity. I was finally complete. ~Payne Hawthorne #Quote by Payne Hawthorne
Transformation quotes by Kate Forsyth
#24. Fairy tales are stories of triumph and transformation and true love, all things I fervently believe in. #Quote by Kate Forsyth
Transformation quotes by David Anderson
#25. Actions are merely an indicator of a problem contained deeper in the heart and in the beliefs of a person. Individual racism cannot be changed through legislation but through personal transformation. #Quote by David Anderson
Transformation quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#26. Nothing can compare with the time spent with God #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Transformation quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#27. Creativity connects me to my truest self and vulnerability. There is nothing more personally liberating, than reaching for my face and peeling off the social mask that hides my; shadow self, pain and weakness. When i produce from this place of truth, the results transform both creator and beholder. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Transformation quotes by Alejo Carpentier
#28. The anxious wait lasted four years, and the alert ears never despaired of hearing, at any moment, the voice of the great conch shell which would bellow through the hills to announce to all that Macandal had completed the cycle of his metamorphoses, and stood poised once more, sinewy and hard, with testicles like rocks, on his own human legs (36-37). #Quote by Alejo Carpentier
Transformation quotes by Nancy Bauer
#29. In Beauvoir's writing, the emancipation of women, an emancipation that on her view can come to full flower only in the wake of a certain transformation in the human being, is linked with a certain transformation in the conventional understanding - both continental and analytic - about how to inherit the tradition of philosophy. #Quote by Nancy Bauer
Transformation quotes by Edward Thomson
#30. Go to the family where darkness and suspicion and jealousy and disorder reign, and if they will but receive Christ, mark how light and confidence and order and peace spring up. Go to the regions of superstition and idolatry, and see what transformations are effected by Jesus. #Quote by Edward Thomson
Transformation quotes by Azam Ali
#31. What intrigues me most about the human voice, is its ability to make all things transparent through its power of transformation. The voice is not just a conduit for words. For me it is like an abstract dream in which everything makes perfect sense. #Quote by Azam Ali
Transformation quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#32. (T)he real world worked differently than stories. In a novel you always knew the moment when something Happened, when someone Changed. But real life was full of gradual, piecemeal, continuous transformation. It was full of accidents and undefinables, and things that just happened on their own. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Transformation quotes by Joseph Goebbels
#33. Revolutions are spiritual acts. They appear first in people, then in politics and the economy. New people form new structures. The transformation we want is first of all spiritual; that will necessarily change the way things are. #Quote by Joseph Goebbels
Transformation quotes by Peter Senge
#34. When all is said and done, the only change that will make a difference is the transformation of the human heart. #Quote by Peter Senge
Transformation quotes by Kathe Koja
#35. I used to send my characters into a fire that necessarily consumed them, but I have learned, a little, how to send them through the fire to a new place. The characters who do not change - most notably Nakota in Cipher, Bibi in Skin, and Lena in Kink - are motivated by an essential selfishness or self-centeredness, an unwillingness to relinquish control to the process, a refusal to become. #Quote by Kathe Koja
Transformation quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#36. Human rights will be a powerful force for the transformation of reality when they are not simply understood as externally defined norms of behavior but are lived as the spontaneous manifestation of internalized values. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Transformation quotes by Libba Bray
#37. Miss Ohio flailed with excitement. "Makeovers are so fun! It's like the Superman phone booth of girl."

Adina sat up. "It's denigrating and objectifying."

"No. It's eye shadow and lipstick and sex and mystery and magic and transformation and fun. And nobody's taking that away from me. #Quote by Libba Bray
Transformation quotes by Anodea Judith
#38. The cultural transformation from the love of power to the power of love is the drama of our time. #Quote by Anodea Judith
Transformation quotes by Curtis Tyrone Jones
#39. Sometimes the universe uses ridicule as a tool to turn you into a titan and tighten up all your loose screws. #Quote by Curtis Tyrone Jones
Transformation quotes by Nikki Rowe
#40. Dont harden your heart; because of the past,
it'll block your sight, of a positive future. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Transformation quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#41. And so we realize that human beings have to be transformed and have to enter into a higher state of awareness, through inner transformation. This has to be the last breakthrough of our evolution, which is a living process. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Transformation quotes by Oswald Spengler
#42. This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us ... to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves, to act in such a way that some part of us lives on. This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us ... to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves, to act in such a way that some part of us lives on. #Quote by Oswald Spengler
Transformation quotes by Joe Lhota
#43. Rudy Giuliani did some phenomenal things in the city if you think of the transformation of the city and the quality of life. #Quote by Joe Lhota
Transformation quotes by David Berkowitz
#44. Effective education is not adding a program or a set of programs to a school. Rather, it is a transformation of the culture and life of the school. #Quote by David Berkowitz
Transformation quotes by Susan Lacke
#45. We're not born running up mountains. Most of us don't even figure out we're capable of such a feat until later in life. Along the way, we make a lot of mistakes. Some of us even hit rock bottom. And then we pick ourselves up, dust off the dirt, and start climbing - sometimes literally. Running is a transformative experience in mind, body and spirit for so many. It helps us face inner demons and shush the naysayers - especially when those naysayers are ourselves. #Quote by Susan Lacke
Transformation quotes by Humberto Maturana
#46. History is a process of transformation through conversation. In our efforts to produce change,we often forget how important it is to pay attention to what is being conserved. #Quote by Humberto Maturana
Transformation quotes by Nicholas D. Evans
#47. By digitizing a traditionally analog business model or process, we're effectively turning it into bits and atoms and enabling an infinite variety of possibilities. #Quote by Nicholas D. Evans
Transformation quotes by Bryant McGill
#48. We must remember that we cannot change others, we can only change ourselves. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Transformation quotes by Richard Plass
#49. Sadly, some have had a very different experience in community. Rather than a transformation of soul, they have experienced a deformation of soul. They entered a community hoping to find a home of unconditional love. What they found was a self-righteous, self-protective, self-promoting reality. If this has been your experience, we are truly sorry. But the fact that communities often fail to live into what the gospel makes possible is no reason to reject community. The emergence of our true self depends on the community life we live in. It is critical that we all find a good church so that our true self can flourish. #Quote by Richard Plass
Transformation quotes by Sean Lennon
#50. We live in a pretty bleak time. I feel that in the air. Everything is uncertain. Everything feels like its on the precipice of some major transformation, whether we like it or not. #Quote by Sean Lennon
Transformation quotes by Gabrielle Bernstein
#51. You'll realize the transformation is not for you alone. You'll learn that you're here to use this gift to shine light on the dark world around you. You become a miracle worker in the world. As you begin to understand how love is crucial to the healing of the world, your miracle work will take on a whole new meaning. #Quote by Gabrielle Bernstein
Transformation quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#52. For the first time I was beginning to discern a God whom I actually wanted to live for. I was beginning to discover the motivation of Paul when he proclaimed, "Christ's love compels us" (2 Cor. 5: 14). All my life I'd tried to be good to avoid hell, or the ugly-stick flogging, or my stepmother's beatings with a two-by-four. But while most people would undoubtedly be better at behaving well with these frightful motivations than I ever was, no one could ever be transformed by these sorts of motivations. Threatening motivations address behavior, but they can never transform our identity. They motivate people to change as a means of protecting themselves, but for this reason they can never move us beyond ourselves to become someone fundamentally different from who we currently are. And threatening motivations can certainly never transform us into people with an other-oriented, self-sacrificial, loving character. Only a motivation that is anchored in love can do this. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Transformation quotes by Marilyn Manson
#53. For me, the key to longevity - and immortality, in a sense - has to do with transformation. #Quote by Marilyn Manson
Transformation quotes by Hillary Carlip
#54. Writing is a tool of transformation and can shine the light on the inside, dispelling darkness, taking us through external layers, bringing us closer to our souls. #Quote by Hillary Carlip
Transformation quotes by Ron Paul
#55. Income taxes are responsible for the transformation of the Federal government from one of limited powers into a vast leviathan whose tentacles reach into almost every aspect of American life. #Quote by Ron Paul
Transformation quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#56. All people want to belong to some sort of hierarchy. Allow me to explain. The rich want to be the richest; the poor want to be the smartest; those who are both rich and smart want to be the better persons; the better persons want to go to heaven; those who are in heaven will look down upon those who are in hell... there is always some kind of hierarchy desired by everyone; even by those who claim the opposite of this. So how do you find true divinity? Divinity is found in those who reach down low; because it is those who are above who must reach down low, while it is those who are below who must constantly reach for what is above! And this is divinity. What is divine, is what will have a curiosity in what is below. There is no fear of becoming "tainted"; because what is lesser can never really taint what is greater. it is what is greater that is able to transform what is lesser. The alchemist must first find the mud, pick it up, before she is able to transform it into diamond. She must first reach into the swamp, in order to pull out roses. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Transformation quotes by Leeza Donatella
#57. You would not experiencing great change unless you were ready for the transformation. Embrace the new you that's emerging. #Quote by Leeza Donatella
Transformation quotes by Shiv Khera
#58. Research has shown that it takes 31 days of conscious effort to make or break a habit. That means, if one practices something consistently for 31 days, on the 32nd day it does become a habit. Information has been internalised into behavioural change, which is called transformation. #Quote by Shiv Khera
Transformation quotes by Richard Rohr
#59. Yes, transformation is often more about unlearning than learning, which is why the religious traditions call it "conversion" or "repentance. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Transformation quotes by Robin McKinley
#60. How does a hundred-and-eighty-pound man turn into a ninety-pound wolf? Where does the leftover ninety go? Does he park it in the umbrella stand overnight? #Quote by Robin McKinley
Transformation quotes by Michelle J. Sorensen
#61. As in other Buddhist Tantric techniques, recommended preliminaries for these practices include developing skill at both calm-abiding (zhi gnas; śamatha) and insight meditation (lhag mthong; vipaśyanā). As in earlier Buddhist teachings, many Chöd dehadāna practices emphasize renunciation, purification, and self-transformation through the accumulation of merit and the exhaustion of demerit. Rather than suggesting that one must wait to accumulate adequate merit before offering the gift of the body, however, Chöd provides the opportunity for immediately efficacious offering of the body through techniques of visualization. Using a technique which echoes the traditional Buddhist teaching of the of the mind-made body (manomayākāya), the practitioner engages in visualizations which allow her to experience the non-duality of agent and object as she offers her body.

The process of giving the body as a means of attainment is commonly articulated in Chöd practice texts (sgrub pa; sādhana). These practice texts exhibit the framework of mature Tantra sādhana, including the stages of generating bodhicitta, going for refuge, meditating on the four immeasurables, and making the eight-limbed offering. Generally speaking, the main section of a developed Chöd sādhana has three components. The first two - a transference of consciousness (nam mkha' sgo 'byed) practice, and a body maṇḍala (lus dkyil) practice - have distinctly purifying purposes. The Chöd transference of consciousness pr #Quote by Michelle J. Sorensen
Transformation quotes by Scott Lively
#62. We've seen the transformation of America, when at the pinnacle of its Christianity was probably in the 1950s. Ever since then it has been declining, why? Because of the sexual revolution. Where did the sexual revolution come from? The sexual revolution came from the activists of the American gay movement. #Quote by Scott Lively
Transformation quotes by Richard Rohr
#63. Heartbreaks, disappointments and even our own weaknesses can serve as stepping-stones to the second half of life transformation. Failings are the foundation for growth. Those who have fallen, failed or 'gone down' are the only ones who understand 'up.' #Quote by Richard Rohr
Transformation quotes by James Gleick
#64. A good part of 'The Information' is about the transition from an oral to a literary culture. Books effected such a great transformation in the way we think about the world, our history, our logic, mathematics, you name it. I think we would be greatly diminished as a people and as a culture if the book became obsolete. #Quote by James Gleick
Transformation quotes by J.D. Vance
#65. I don't believe in epiphanies. I don't believe in transformative moments, as transformation is harder than a moment. I've seen far too many people awash in a genuine desire to change only to lose their mettle when they realized just how difficult change actually is. #Quote by J.D. Vance
Transformation quotes by Pat Conroy
#66. I will take you down my own avenue of remembrance, which winds among the hazards and shadows of my single year as a plebe. I cannot come to this story in full voice. I want to speak for the boys who were violated by this school, the ones who left ashamed and broken and dishonored, who departed from the Institute with wounds and bitter grievances. I want also to speak for the triumphant boys who took everything the system could throw at them, endured every torment and excess, and survived the ordeal of the freshman year with a feeling of transformation and achievement that they never had felt before and would never know again with such clarity and elation.

I will speak from my memory- my memory- a memory that is all refracting light slanting through prisms and dreams, a shifting, troubled riot of electrons charged with pain and wonder. My memory often seems like a city of exiled poets afire with the astonishment of language, each believing in the integrity of his own witness, each with a separate version of culture and history, and the divine essentional fire that is poetry itself.

But i will try to isolate that one lonely singer who gathered the fragments of my plebe year and set the screams to music. For many years, I have refused to listen as his obsessive voice narrated the malignant litany of crimes against my boyhood. We isolate those poets who cause us the greatest pain; we silence them in any way we can. I have never allowed this furious dissi #Quote by Pat Conroy
Transformation quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#67. Each of us encounters many diverse experiences that make us grow and transform, but we seek to return to our roots, which is quietude. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Transformation quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#68. [Dionysos'] being torn into pieces, the genuine Dionysiac suffering, is like a transformation into air, water, earth, and fire, so that we are to regard the state of individuation as the source and primal cause of all suffering ... In the view described here we already have all the constituent elements of a profound way of looking at the world and thus, at the same time, the doctrine of the Mysteries taught by tragedy: the fundamental recognition that everything which exists is a unity; the view that individuation is the primal source of all evil; and art as the joyous hope that the spell of individuation can be broken, a premonition of unity restored. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Transformation quotes by Paulo Freire
#69. One of the basic questions that we need to look at is how to convert merely rebellious attitudes into revolutionary ones in the process of the radical transformation of society. Merely rebellious attitudes or actions are insufficient, though they are an indispensable response to legitimate anger. It is necessary to go beyond rebellious attitudes to a more radically critical and revolutionary position, which is in fact a position not simply of denouncing injustice but of announcing a new utopia. Transformation of the world implies a dialectic between the two actions: denouncing the process of dehumanization and announcing the dream of a new society. On the basis of this knowledge, namely, "to change things is difficult but possible," we can plan our political-pedagogical strategy. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Transformation quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#70. God has prepared everything, but he cannot do anything without you to bring His plan to pass #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Transformation quotes by Karl Marx
#71. In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness. The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness. At a certain stage of development, the material productive forces of society come into conflict with the existing relations of production or – this merely expresses the same thing in legal terms – with the property relations within the framework of which they have operated hitherto. From forms of development of the productive forces these relations turn into their fetters. Then begins an era of social revolution. The changes in the economic foundation lead sooner or later to the transformation of the whole immense superstructure. #Quote by Karl Marx
Transformation quotes by Anonymous
#72. In order to adapt to a changing world, we must help, or at the very least not hinder, global transformation and the concomitant socioeconomic changes: urbanization, higher educational achievement, changes in employment structures. #Quote by Anonymous
Transformation quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#73. So, can my mind be free from the given culture in which I have been brought up? This is really quite an important question. Because if the mind is not free from the culture in which it has been reared, nurtured, surely the individual can never be at peace, can never have freedom. His gods and his myths, his symbols, and all his endeavors are limited, for they are still within the field of the conditioned mind. Whatever efforts he makes, or does not make, within that limited field, are really futile in the deepest sense of that word. There may be a better decoration of the prison - more light, more windows, better food - but it is still the prison of a particular culture. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Transformation quotes by Max McKeown
#74. As an innovator, you need to be aware of how traditions, habits and bias can act as barriers to accepting new ideas. #Quote by Max McKeown
Transformation quotes by Eve Ensler
#75. I am not saying people shouldn't be held accountable for terrible acts. But holding people in prisons does not necessarily make them responsible or accountable. It makes them bad. It makes them evil. It puts an end to any process of transformation. It hardens them spiritually and psychologically. #Quote by Eve Ensler
Transformation quotes by Yasuhiko Kimura
#76. Transformation always and necessarily calls for a transformation of oneself and one's environment. But I don't see that happening. People are stuck with their own positions that never change. #Quote by Yasuhiko Kimura
Transformation quotes by Paul Gitwaza
#77. Spiritual maturity is not measured by the years that you have spent in church, rather by your attitude before people different from you. #Quote by Paul Gitwaza
Transformation quotes by Stefan Zweig
#78. The transformation of the impossible into reality is always the mark of a demonic will. The only way to recognize a military genius is by the fact that, during the war, he will mock the rules of warfare and will employ creative improvisation instead of tested methods and he will do so at the right moment. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Transformation quotes by Dalai Lama
#79. The key to genuine happiness is in our hands. To think this way is to discover the essential values of kindness, brotherly love and altruism. The more clearly we see the benefits of these values, the more we will seek to reject anything that opposes them; in this way we will be able to bring about inner transformation. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Transformation quotes by Meredith Duran
#80. She wished he could make her somehow indelibly his; that they were still children so they could cut their fingers and mingle their blood and know this meant something. She longed for some transformation more lasting than that wrought by the law and his name, some visceral change he might effect in her so that anyone on the street with one glance would know she was his. #Quote by Meredith Duran
Transformation quotes by Greg Nickels
#81. The opportunities of the twenty-first century make those of us who care about cities feel like kids in a candy store: How will cities survive and lead the way in the transformation required to combat global warming? Resilient Cities gives us a road map for this epic journey upon which we are embarking. #Quote by Greg Nickels
Transformation quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#82. Which means we couldn't possibly turn a blind eye to the poor or declare "comfort and safety" our top priority. If we really believed, then we'd never be happy living healthy, affluent lives while ignoring the 25,000 people who will die of starvation that same day. Once we are believers, we can't begrudge our enemies or live a totally self-absorbed life. Believing in Jesus means transformation - how could it mean anything less? One who says, "I believe" and lives for herself doesn't believe at all. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Transformation quotes by John Granger
#83. Second, the reason to embrace and celebrate these novels as the countercultural event that they are is due largely to the subliminal messages delivered by Harry and friends in their stolen wheelbarrows. Readers walk away, maybe a little softer on the occult than they were, but with story-embedded messages: the importance of a pure soul; love's power even over death; about sacrifice and loyalty; a host of images and shadows about Christ and how essential 'right belief' is for personal transformation and victory over internal and external evils. #Quote by John Granger
Transformation quotes by Blake Griffin
#84. Acting is the great love of my life. It gives you permission to use all parts of yourself. Permission to be the hero, the love interest, the comedian, the villain. Transformation excites me. So does truth. Nothing is more thrilling, hilarious, and tragic than the truth. Those things motivated me to become an actor. Also, they always have the best food on set. #Quote by Blake Griffin
Transformation quotes by Satish Kumar
#85. The great work of social transformation begins with the first small step of stopping, calming, relaxing, reflecting and acting in a beneficial way. #Quote by Satish Kumar
Transformation quotes by Emily Henry
#86. Thresholds are more than randomly chosen divisions between rooms. They're places where change -- transformation -- happens. #Quote by Emily Henry
Transformation quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#87. Music: breathing of statues. Perhaps:
silence of paintings. You language where all language
ends. You time
standing vertically on the motion of mortal hearts.
Feelings for whom? O you the transformation
of feelings into what?
: into audible landscape.
You stranger: music. You heart-space
grown out of us. The deepest space in us,
which, rising above us, forces its way out,
holy departure:
when the innermost point in us stands
outside, as the most practiced distance, as the other
side of the air:
pure,
boundless,
no longer habitable. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Transformation quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#88. Solitude is the furnace of transformation. Without solitude we remain victims of our society and continue to be entangled in the illusions of the false self. Jesus himself entered into this furnace. There he was tempted with the three compulsions of the world: to be relevant ('turn stones into loaves'), to be spectacular ('throw yourself down'), and to be powerful ('I will give you all these kingdoms'). There he affirmed God as the only source of his identity ('You must worship the Lord your God and serve him alone'). Solitude is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter - the struggle against the compulsions of the false self, and the encounter with the loving God who offers himself as the substance of the new self. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Transformation quotes by Richard J. Foster
#89. In "The Cost of Discipleship" Dietrich Bonhoeffer makes it clear that grace is free, but it is not cheap. The grace of God is unearned and unearnable, but if we ever expect to grow in grace, we must pay the price of a consciously chosen course of action which involves both individual and group life. Spiritual growth is the purpose of the Disciplines.

It might be helpful to visualize what we have been discussing. Picture a long, narrow ridge with a sheer drop-off on either side. The chasm to the right is the way of moral bankruptcy through human strivings for righteousness. Historically this has been called the heresy of moralism. The chasm to the left is moral bankruptcy through the absence of human strivings. This has been called the heresy of antinomianism. On the ridge there is a path, the Disciplines of the spiritual life. This path leads to the inner transformation and healing for which we seek. We must never veer off to the right or to the left, but stay on the path. The path is fraught with severe difficulties, but also with incredible joys. As we travel on this path the blessing of God will come upon us and reconstruct us into the image of Jesus Christ. We must always remember that the path does not produce the change; it only places us where the change can occur. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Transformation quotes by Max Horkheimer
#90. Once the philosophical foundation of democracy has collapsed, the statement that dictatorship is bad is rationally valid only for those who are not its beneficiaries, and there is no theoretical obstacle to the transformation of this statement into its opposite. #Quote by Max Horkheimer

#92. Life's changes creates confidence! #Quote by Sue Pighini
Transformation quotes by Austin Channing Brown
#93. I determine to offer a challenge toward transformation. For most confessions, this is as simple as asking, "So what are you going to do differently?" The question lifts the weight off my shoulders and forces the person to move forward, resisting the easy comfort of having spoken the confession. The person could, of course, dissolve into excuses, but at that point the weight of that decision belongs to them, not to me. #Quote by Austin Channing Brown
Transformation quotes by Samael Aun Weor
#94. We need the conflagration of Love to change the world, we need the fire of love to illuminate the society. The cold, insipid and complicated codes don't change anything, don't transform anything. All the best social projects and the best political principles are useless if they are not written with the fire of Love. The real revolution is the result of transformation, only the storms of Love can transform the individual and the society. #Quote by Samael Aun Weor
Transformation quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#95. Transformation often depends that we separate our emotional responses from our rational minds. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Transformation quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#96. Creating - that is the great salvation from suffering, and life's alleviation. But for the creator to appear, suffering itself is needed, and much transformation. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Transformation quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#97. If God spoke from Heaven, people will not understand Him, that is why Jesus came to earth #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Transformation quotes by Peter Shepherd
#98. Transformation occurs when existing solutions, assumed truths and past decisions are exposed as unrealistic and self-defeating. #Quote by Peter Shepherd
Transformation quotes by Ivan Illich
#99. We are the witnesses of a barely perceptible transformation in ordinary language: verbs which formerly expressed satisfying actions have been replaced by nouns which name packages designed for passive consumption only -- 'to learn' becomes 'to accumulate credits'. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Transformation quotes by Ernst W. Mayr
#100. According to the concept of transformational evolution, first clearly articulated by Lamarck, evolution consists of the gradual transformation of organisms from one condition of existence to another. #Quote by Ernst W. Mayr

#102. A pair of skis are the ultimate transformation to freedom #Quote by Warren Miller
Transformation quotes by Niall Shanks
#103. If a functional gene becomes a pseudogene, its product will no longer be available to the biochemical pathways in which it formerly participated. The transformation of a gene to a pseudogene will not have catastrophic consequences if the biochemical pathways in which its product formerly participated are redundantly complex - other products can take over the role of the missing product. Perhaps not as efficiently, but efficiency is something that can be improved by selection. In this way, redundant scaffolding can be reduced, ultimately to the point where a system or pathway is irreducibly complex. #Quote by Niall Shanks
Transformation quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#104. But I must finally realize that I am subject to these sudden transformations. The thing is that I rarely think; a crowd of small metamorphoses accumulate in me without my noticing it, and then, one fine day, a veritable revolution takes place. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Transformation quotes by Ossian Everett Mills
#105. This it is to be a man of the highest type: to be and not seem; to do and not simply to talk; to have the right ideal, the true motive and patiently to transform conduct in accordance with it. #Quote by Ossian Everett Mills
Transformation quotes by Par Lagerkvist
#106. It is incomprehensible that he should want to have these futile people here, and still more incomprehensible that he should be able to sit and listen to them and their stupid chatter. I can understand that he may occasionally listen to poets reciting their verses; they can be regarded as buffoons such as are always kept at court. They laud the lofty purity of the human soul, great events and heroic feats, and there is nothing to be said against all that, particularly if their songs flatter him. Human beings need flattery; otherwise they do not fulfill their purpose, not even in their own eyes. And both the present and the past contain much that is beautiful and noble which, without due praise, would have been neither noble nor beautiful. Above all, they sing the praises of love, which is quite as it should be, for nothing else is in such need of transformation into something different. The ladies are filled with melancholy and their breasts heave with sighs; the men gaze vaguely and dreamily into space, for they all know what it is really like and realize that this must be an especially beautiful poem. #Quote by Par Lagerkvist
Transformation quotes by Wright Morris
#107. Life, raw life, the kind we lead every day, whether it leads us into the past or the future, has the curious property of not seeming real enough. We have a need, however illusive, for a life that is more real than life. It lies in the imagination. Fiction would seem to be the way it is processed into reality. If this were not so we should have little excuse for art. Life, raw life, would be more than satisfactory in itself. But it seems to be the nature of man to transform - himself, if possible, and then the world around him - and the technique of this transformation is what we call art. #Quote by Wright Morris
Transformation quotes by Ambelin Kwaymullina
#108. Death is a great transformation. But it is not an end. #Quote by Ambelin Kwaymullina
Transformation quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#109. Reading, writing, and personal introspection will not protect us from hardship and suffering, but they might introduce us to critical thinking and expose us to what is good in humankind and beautiful in the world that we share with all of nature. Contemplative thought, especially that supplemented with reading literature and attempting to write our own replies to the echoing voices of writers whom preceded us provide us with the potentiality for change, the possibility of personal illumination that enables us to experience a heighted quality of life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Transformation quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#110. Nonviolence is not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social transformation. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Transformation quotes by Adolfo Perez Esquivel
#111. We know that peace is only possible when it is the fruit of justice. True peace is a profound transformation by means of the force of nonviolence that is the power of love. #Quote by Adolfo Perez Esquivel
Transformation quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#112. The Shaod, it was called. The Transformation ... When it came, the fortuante person's life ended and began anew; he would discard his old, mundane existence and move to Elantris. Elantris, where he could live in bliss, rule in wisdom, and be worshiped for eternity.
Eternity ended ten years ago. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Transformation quotes by Amit Ray
#113. Pray for transformation in every corner of the universe. Let there be peace and happiness everywhere. #Quote by Amit Ray
Transformation quotes by David Edward Goldberg
#114. The emotional transformation of engineering education isn't magical thinking. Nor is it a vague abstraction or a series of touchy-feely practices. It is based on a philosophy of education that is grounded in the real world and in the lives of the students we serve. It's available to everyone. It isn't expensive. It can't be accomplished in the old paradigm under the old assumptions about how education change happens, but in the right atmosphere, the change flows organically from the students themselves. That atmosphere requires systematic language change, culture change, and personal change by students, faculty, and all the stakeholders in education. #Quote by David Edward Goldberg
Transformation quotes by Philip K. Dick
#115. There are no private lives. This a most important aspect of modern life. One of the biggest transformations we have seen in our society is the diminution of the sphere of the private. We must reasonably now all regard the fact that there are no secrets and nothing is private. Everything is public. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Transformation quotes by Jessica Moore
#116. Our approach to modern health care focuses so much on removing symptoms, that we've learned to equate immediate relief with healing. But healing is much more than simply feeling better in the moment; it requires true transformation, and transformation is rarely comfortable. #Quote by Jessica Moore
Transformation quotes by Jacques Ranciere
#117. Critical art is an art that aims to produce a new perception of the world, and therefore to create a commitment to its transformation. This schema, very simple in appearance, is actually the conjunction of three processes: first, the production of a sensory form of 'strangeness'; second, the development of an awareness of the reason for that strangeness and third, a mobilization of individuals as a result of that awareness. #Quote by Jacques Ranciere
Transformation quotes by John Von Neumann
#118. If one has really technically penetrated a subject, things that previously seemed in complete contrast, might be purely mathematical transformations of each other. #Quote by John Von Neumann
Transformation quotes by Bill Johnson
#119. Oftentimes religious circles are known for extreme control of the people, situations and environment around them. Control then becomes the issue of the hour. Studying the Scriptures without letting the Holy Spirit teach us puts us in control. He always takes us to Jesus. Going to the One the Scriptures point to puts Him in control. In other words, when the Bible is an end unto itself, it gives us a measure of learning, but no personal transformation. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Transformation quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#120. Buddha taught, "Breathing in, I recognize my feeling. Breathing out, I calm my feeling." If you practice this, not only will your feeling be calmed down but the energy of mindfulness will also help you see into the nature and roots of your anger. Mindfulness helps you be concentrated and look deeply. This is true meditation. The insight will come after some time of practice. You will see the truth about yourself and the truth about the person who you thought to be the cause of your suffering. This insight will release you from your anger and transform the roots of anger in you. The transformation in you will also help transform the other person. Mindful speaking can bring real happiness, and unmindful speech can kill. When someone tells us something that makes us happy, that is a wonderful gift. But sometimes someone says something to us that is so cruel and distressing that we feel like committing suicide. We lose our joie de vivre. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Transformation quotes by Alison Bechdel
#121. Gatsby's self-willed metamorphosis from farm boy to prince is many ways identical to my father's. Like Gatsby, my father fueled this transformation with the "colossal vitality of his illusion". Unlike Gatsby he did this on a school teacher's salary. #Quote by Alison Bechdel
Transformation quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#122. Losing too is still ours; and even forgetting
still has a shape in the kingdom of transformation.
When something's let go of, it circles; and though we are
rarely the center
of the circle, it draws around us its unbroken, marvelous
curve. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Transformation quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#123. The things we want are transformative, and we don't know or only think we know what is on the other side of that transformation Never to get lost is not to live. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit

#125. Forgiveness has the ability to transform our thoughts. #Quote by Asa Don Brown
Transformation quotes by Nhat Hanh
#126. Transformations is the word. We can do the work of transformation only in the present moment #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Transformation quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#127. The people thrown into other cultures go through something of the anguish of the butterfly, whose body must disintegrate and reform more than once in its life cycle. In her novel "Regeneration," Pat Barker writes of a doctor who "knew only too well how often the early stages of change or cure may mimic deterioration. Cut a chrysalis open, and you will find a rotting caterpillar. What you will never find is that mythical creature, half caterpillar, half butterfly, a fit emblem of the human soul, for those whose cat of mind leads them to seek such emblems. No, the process of transformation consists almost entirely of decay." But the butterfly is so fit an emblem of the human soul that its name in Greek is "psyche," the word for soul. We have not much language to appreciate this phase of decay, this withdrawal, this era of ending that must precede beginning. Nor of the violence of the metamorphosis, which is often spoken of as though it were as graceful as a flower blooming. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Transformation quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#128. People who represent social organization in a country are a force in that country #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Transformation quotes by Recep Tayyip Erdogan
#129. It is essential that policy instruments be developed that would firmly establish democratization on the basis of social consensus and enable transformation on stable grounds. #Quote by Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Transformation quotes by Erich Neumann
#130. As the Great Creatrix, the feminine is no vessel and passage for an alien, masculine Other that condescends towards her, enters into her, and favors her with the seed of living. Life originates in her and issues from her, and the light that appears projected on the night sky, which she is herself, is rooted in her depths. For she is not only the protomantis, the first and great Prophetess, but also she who gives birth to the Spirit-Light, which, like consciousness and the illumination that arises in transformation, is rooted in her creative efficacy. She is the creative Earth, which not only brings forth and swallows life, but as that which transforms also lets the dead thing be resurrected and leads the lower to the higher. All developments and transformations that lead from the simple and insignificant through all gradations of life to the complicated and intricately differentiated fall under her sovereignty. This matriarchal world is geocentric; the stars and signs of the zodiac are the heavenly girdle of the Earth Goddess and are arranged around her as the true center around which everything revolves. #Quote by Erich Neumann
Transformation quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#131. Perhaps many things inside you have been transformed; perhaps somewhere, someplace deep inside your being, you have undergone important changes while you were sad. The only sadnesses that are dangerous and unhealthy are the ones that we carry around in public in order to drown them out with the noise; like diseases that are treated superficially and foolishly, they just withdraw and after a short interval break out again all the more terribly; and gather inside us and are life, are life that is unlived, rejected, lost, life that we can die of. If only it were possible for us to see farther than our knowledge reaches, and even a little beyond the outworks of our presentiment, perhaps we would bear our sadnesses with greater trust than we have in our joys. For they are the moments when something new has entered us, something unknown; our feelings grow mute in shy embarrassment, everything in us withdraws, a silence arises, and the new experience, which no one knows, stands in the midst of it all and says nothing. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Transformation quotes by Bryant McGill
#132. From generation to generation, America should never be the same country. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Transformation quotes by Seth Godin
#133. The thing is, incremental daily progress (negative or positive) is what actually causes transformation. A figurative drip, drip, drip. Showing up, every single day, gaining in strength, organizing for the long haul, building connection, laying track  -  this subtle but difficult work is how culture changes. #Quote by Seth Godin
Transformation quotes by David Hoffmeister
#134. Turning something over to the Holy Spirit is a leap of faith that lets go of attempting to control outcomes. The core of alcoholism, anorexia, bulimia, smoking and a host of things the world calls addictions is control. The little willingness the Holy Spirit asks is the key to letting go of the attempt to manage the body and the world, which is the insane attempt to maintain a self-concept image that God did not create. An idea to contemplate from the Course is this: "Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world." The requirement is to change your thinking, not to focus on behavior and form. Behavior flows from thought, and transformation of the mind is synonymous with changing thought patterns from ego-based to Spirit-based. #Quote by David Hoffmeister
Transformation quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#135. The evil components of our shadow are the part of us that we deplore, the part of us that we prefer not to admit. One must set themselves free from all inhibitions in order to initiate close encounters with their innermost monster. By standing toe-to-toe with the part of ourselves that we most detest, a person is in a position to slay their fiendish sense of self and, by doing so, undergo a soulful transformation. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Transformation quotes by Chris Rice
#136. Stepping back and connecting reconciliation to God's story also helps us move away from dramatic visions of fixing the world, as if our job were to provide solutions to problems outside us. If Christians believe anything, it is that no one - including ourselves and the church - is separate from the brokenness as an untainted solution to the problems of our world. The new creation contends with the old. The dividing line between good and evil runs straight through each one of us. So the journey of reconciliation begins with a transformation of the human person. #Quote by Chris Rice
Transformation quotes by Hannah Arendt
#137. Every political structure, new or old, left to itself develops stabilizing forces which stand in the way of constant transformation and expansion. Therefore all political bodies appear to be temporary obstacles when they are seen as part of an eternal stream of growing power. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Transformation quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#138. Kiss a frog with your eyes wide open. If he turns into a prince you won't miss the transformation, but if he doesn't, you won't be fooled by some wishful illusion in your head. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Transformation quotes by Tony Judt
#139. The history of the two halves of post-war Europe cannot be told in isolation from one another. The legacy of the Second World War - and the pre-war decades and the war before that - forced upon the governments and peoples of east and west Europe alike some hard choices about how best to order their affairs so as to avoid any return to the past. One option - to pursue the radical agenda of the popular front movements of the 1930s - was initially very popular in both parts of Europe (a reminder that 1945 was never quite the fresh start that it sometimes appears). In eastern Europe some sort of radical transformation was unavoidable. There could be no possibility of returning to the discredited past. What, then, would replace it? Communism may have been the wrong solution, but the dilemma to which it was responding was real enough.
In the West the prospect of radical change was smoothed away, not least thanks to American aid (and pressure). The appeal of the popular-front agenda - and of Communism - faded: both were prescriptions for hard times and in the West, at least after 1952, the times were no longer so hard. And so, in the decades that followed, the uncertainties of the immediate post-war years were forgotten. But the possibility that things might take a different turn - indeed, the likelihood that they would take a different turn - had seemed very real in 1945; it was to head off a return of the old demons (unemployment, Fascism, German militarism, war, revolution) #Quote by Tony Judt
Transformation quotes by James Baldwin
#140. The energy that was buried with the rise of the Christian nations must come back into the world; nothing can prevent it. Many of us, I think, both long to see this happen and are terrified of it, for though this transformation contains the hope of liberation, it also imposes a necessity for great change. But in order to deal with the untapped and dormant force of the previously subjugated, in order to survive as a human, moving, moral weight in the world, America and all the Western nations will be forced to reexamine themselves and release themselves from many thing that are now taken to be sacred, and to discard nearly all the assumptions that have been used to justify their lives and their anguish and their crimes so long. #Quote by James Baldwin
Transformation quotes by Ben Mendelsohn
#141. I don't believe in the transformation myth, where if you have more success, life changes for you. #Quote by Ben Mendelsohn

Transformation quotes by Rebecca O'Dwyer Centred Woman
#144. My job as a Mind Body Spirit Coach is not to 'fix' people, it is to 'break' them and empower them to connect to their spirit and trust that they will be re-built slightly differently given a little time and patience. #Quote by Rebecca O'Dwyer Centred Woman
Transformation quotes by Karl Wiggins
#145. The strange thing about Janice Joplin is that she could look incredibly vulnerable on stage. That is, until she had a mike in her hand and started to sing. Once she started singing she put her whole life into each and every song. It was a remarkable transformation.
Each song was her life! #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Transformation quotes by Zadie Smith

Transformation quotes by Emma Mildon
#147. Truth is, there comes a time when turning a new page in your life is the most liberating and empowering feeling you can experience. It is that sweet moment of fruition, when you realize there's so much more to the book of life. That the power of birthing the life you wish for lays in your hands to turn over, and cast out what doesn't feed your soul, add to your life, help you grow, or consciously challenge you. Keep turning pages Goddess. You are allowed and encouraged to change. #Quote by Emma Mildon
Transformation quotes by James Thornton
#148. Change has to be hard because you're fighting against inertia. #Quote by James Thornton
Transformation quotes by Kurt Eichenwald
#149. Excuse me, Ben," Bowen said. "Am I wrong, or aren't you the corporate treasurer?"
Glisan bristled. "Yes."
"What do you mean, you think you can get one?" Bowen shot back. "This is the current fucking maturities schedule! Go get it. You have to have a maturities schedule!"
But they didn't. With all the focus on deals and earnings- with finance group's transformation into a profit center rather than a division to support the business- the workday, boring details had been sloughed off.

#152. Western religions are more concerned with behavior, doctrine, and belief than with any transformation of the way in which we are aware of ourselves and our world. #Quote by Alan Watts
Transformation quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#153. Once you say 'I want to find Truth', all your life will be deeply affected by it. All your mental and physical habits, feelings and emotions, desires and fears, plans and decisions will undergo a most radical transformation. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Transformation quotes by Michel Foucault
#154. For was this transformation of sex into discourse not governed by the endeavor to expel from reality the forms of sexuality that were not amenable to the strict economy of reproduction: to say no to unproductive activities, to banish casual pleasures, to reduce or exclude practices whose object was not procreation? #Quote by Michel Foucault
Transformation quotes by Marianne Williamson
#155. Often on a journey of spiritual transformation, that is ultimately what heals the pain: the veil is removed from in front of our own eyes and we see where we had been thinking thoughts that would inevitably lead to pain. Until we change those thoughts, the pain will remain. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Transformation quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#156. We neither need a political revolution nor a religious revolution. What we need is an inner transformation in human beings. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Transformation quotes by Paul Selig
#157. Now, everybody, get this: You don't have to fight. You can allow. Allow, allow, allow. And then the transformation comes so rapidly that you don't have to worry about it. The time you spend worrying about what will become of you if this or that happened is time that is wasted. It has never gained you anything, nor will it ever, except that you create from your worry and then you have to contend with those structures that you have built. #Quote by Paul Selig
Transformation quotes by Leslie Jamison
#158. Burroughs doesn't want to be broken into explanations and reassembled into well-being. He wants to stand behind his subtitle: Unredeemed. The syllogisms of cause and effect dangle the prospect of transformation, but he's not interested in that kind of redemption. #Quote by Leslie Jamison
Transformation quotes by Sarah McLean
#159. Meditation is an essential travel partner on your journey of personal transformation. Meditation connects you with your soul,and this connection gives you access to your intuition, your heartfelt desires, your integrity, and the inspiration to create a life you love. #Quote by Sarah McLean

#161. If you want to awaken all of humanity,

is your own transformation.

Transformation quotes by Gabor Mate
#163. Narrow behaviourist thinking
permeates political and social policy and medical practice, the
childrearing advice dispensed by "parenting experts" and academic
discourse. We keep trying to change people's behaviours without a full
understanding of how and why those behaviours arise. "Inner causes
are not the proper domain of psychology," writes Roy Wise, an expert
on the psychology of addiction, and a prominent investigator in the
National Institute on Drug Abuse in the U.S.A.3 This statement seems
astonishing, coming from a psychologist. In reality, there can be no
understanding of human beings, let alone of addicted human beings,
without looking at "inner causes," tricky as those causes can be to pin
down at times. Behaviours, especially compulsive behaviours, are
often the active representations of emotional states and of special
kinds of brain functioning.
As we have seen, the dominant emotional states and the brain
patterns of human beings are shaped by their early environment.
Throughout their lifetimes, they are in dynamic interaction with various
social and emotional milieus. If we are to help addicts, we must strive
to change not them but their environments. These are the only things
we can change. Transformation of the addict must come from within
and the best we can do is to encourage it. Fortunately, there is much
that we can do. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Transformation quotes by William B. Irvine
#164. The Stoics believed in social reform, but they also believed in personal transformation. More precisely, they thought the first step in transforming a society into one in which people live a good life is to teach people how to make their happiness depend as little as possible on their external circumstances. The second step in transforming a society is to change people's external circumstances. The Stoics would add that if we fail to transform ourselves, then no matter how much we transform the society in which we live, we are unlikely to have a good life. #Quote by William B. Irvine
Transformation quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#165. It is better to be the recipient of violence than the inflicter of it, since the latter only multiplies the existence of violence and bitterness in the universe, while the former may develop a sense of shame in the opponent, and thereby bring about a transformation and change of heart. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Transformation quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
#166. A human body is associated with six stages of transformation, birth, growth, change, evolution, death and destruction. #Quote by Sathya Sai Baba
Transformation quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#167. Two fundamental factors are at the base of this transformation. The first is the destruction of those religious, political, and social beliefs in which all the elements of our civilisation are rooted. The second is the creation of entirely new conditions of existence and thought as the result of modern scientific and industrial discoveries. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Transformation quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#168. Transformation can only take place immediately; the revolution is now, not tomorrow. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Transformation quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#169. If new species arise very rapidly in small, peripherally isolated local populations, then the great expectation of insensibly graded fossil sequences is a chimera. A new species does not evolve in the area of its ancestors; it does not arise from the slow transformation of all its forbears.
co-author with Niles Eldridge #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Transformation quotes by Danny Castillones Sillada
#170. Like a caterpillar that excruciatingly turns upside down inside a dark cocoon to transform into a beautiful butterfly, human consciousness must also undergo a similar process, evolving and becoming a rational and sensible being. It is a painful human awakening from ignorance to wisdom, from bigotry to tolerance, from indifference to empathy. ( - Danny Castillones Sillada, The Sensation of Not Being Dead) #Quote by Danny Castillones Sillada
Transformation quotes by Tama J. Kieves
#171. Transformation of any kind always exacts a holy tussle. The newborn butterfly struggles to open its wings so it can conjure up the strength to fly. So, too, with artists, inventors, mystics, and entrepreneurs. #Quote by Tama J. Kieves
Transformation quotes by Alan Cohen
#172. Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation. #Quote by Alan Cohen
Transformation quotes by Susan C. Young
#173. Once you embrace that continuous change is a natural process for your growth and evolution, you will be reminded that who, what, and where you are now is a temporary condition. Understanding this fact is foundational for hope, positive change and resilient transformation. #Quote by Susan C. Young
Transformation quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#174. We do not get to vote on who owns what, or on relations in factory and so on, for all this is deemed beyond the sphere of the political, and it is illusory to expect that one can actually change things by "extending" democracy to ple's control. Radical changes in this domain should be made outside the sphere of legal "rights", etcetera: no matter how radical our anti-capitalism, unless this is understood, the solution sought will involve applying democratic mechanisms (which, of course, can have a positive role to play)- mechanisms, one should never forget, which are themselves part of the apparatus of the "bourgeois" state that guarantees the undisturbed functioning of capitalist reproduction. In this precise sense, Badiou hit the mark with his apparently wired claim that "Today, the enemy is not called Empire or Capital. It's called Democracy." it is the "democratic illusion" the acceptance of democratic procedures as the sole framework for any possible change, that blocks any radical transformation of capitalist relations. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Transformation quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#175. To protect her son, Shishupala's mother gets from Krishna a boon that he will forgive a hundred crimes of her son. But she does not bother to warn her son never to commit a crime. Thus Vyasa draws attention to a peculiar human trait of trying to solve a problem through external means without bringing about any internal transformation. #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Transformation quotes by Satish Kumar
#176. Wars and conflicts begin in the mind, then they are expressed in words and then executed through physical action, so personal transformation is intricately connected with the social and political transformation. #Quote by Satish Kumar
Transformation quotes by Sayantan Sen
#177. One day, you would see,
You have dropped your attire,
The dirt you are carrying on your shoulder
And your entire self! #Quote by Sayantan Sen
Transformation quotes by Mike Slaughter
#178. My issue isn't with a Christian's involvement in the political arena. We need Christians involved in the political process. But we must not equate a political party's platform as representative of the Kingdom's purpose on earth. Nor should we demonize those who disagree with our political positions. Legislation, though important, cannot create change and transformation in the human heart. Power corrupts! #Quote by Mike Slaughter
Transformation quotes by Mark Lewis Taylor
#179. Time's agency becomes most vicious when it is routinized for the practical effect of control. The routinizaton of time is a transformation cultivated by prison authorities and designed to make every day like every other. In this experience, paradoxically, time acts even to deaden one's sense of time. All the more true is this among the 80,000, likely more,[52] who are serving time in solitary confinement.

Transformation quotes by Brent Peterson
#180. Christian communal worship is the glorification of God and the sanctification of humanity as a divine-human event where God offers transformation and healing to help people become more fully what God created them to be and do. God breathes (inhales) and gathers in individual Christians to heal, transform, and renew them as the body of Christ to breathe (exhale) them out to continue the ministry of the incarnation that participates in the kingdom of God more fully coming. The consummation of the kingdom will come and God will be all in all. #Quote by Brent Peterson

Transformation quotes by Leela Fernandes
#182. Reclaiming the sacred... is not simply a new linguistic or symbolic strategy for feminism. It goes to the heart of feminist struggles for social justice and can provide a critical foundation for social transformation. At one level, feminism becomes a means for the decolonization of the divine. At another level, the provision of spiritual strength to individuals deeply committed to social justice is more necessary than ever in a world racked by immense hatreds that feed on each other in endless cycles of retribution, always in the name of 'justice.' Finally, a spiritualization of social movements can provide a means with which to break from these cycles of retribution which perpetrate multiple and linked forms of oppression so that social movements continually find themselves appropriated by or circumscribed within the very structures they have tried wholeheartedly to resist. #Quote by Leela Fernandes
Transformation quotes by Albert Laszlo Barabasi
#183. In a completely different era and domain, Charles Darwin hypothesized that the emergence of each new species was a gradual process, taking place through the slow transformation of existing species into their somewhat-modified offspring. Yet evidence for such continuous change was not only lacking back then but is scarce even today, having prompted Darwin to label it "the gravest objection [that] can be urged against my theory." Instead, over millions of years species in the fossil record show little or no evolutionary change. New species tend to appear over periods spanning tens of thousands of years, a split second in terms of all evolutionary time. Evolution proceeds in bursts, which are in turn preserved in the fossil record. #Quote by Albert Laszlo Barabasi

Transformation quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#185. [T]he effects of general change [in literature] are most tellingly recorded not in alteration of the best products, but in the transformation of the most ordinary workaday books; for when potboilers adopt the new style, then the revolution is complete. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Transformation quotes by Huston Smith
#186. Might we begin then to transform our passing illuminations into abiding light? #Quote by Huston Smith

#187. Through all aspects of society be it art, design, the financial markets, government, technology or communications we are witnessing unprecedented global transformation - the result of which is impossible to predict. #Quote by Malcolm McLaren
Transformation quotes by Patsie Smith
#188. I am Life
Your pure essence, spirit and seed of existence itself,
That lies within you, longing to awaken and flourish.
I am long before you and after you, never born, never die,
timeless, without boundaries.

I am pure unconditional love, wholeness,connectedness, freedom, bliss,joy, peace, stillness.
I am That beyond the gross and limited,
yet you are blinded.
You choose the illusion
that you have control
through grasping and being caught
by all that is unreal and comes and goes.
You think you are alive but you barely know Life.
You choose separation.

It is time to wake up!
Have strength, courage and trust to let go.
Surrender the fear and all that imprisons you.

I am beyond mind, thoughts, emotions, ego, conditioning, desires, needs, attachments, memories, dreams, goals, forms, identities, ideas.
Beyond all that arises.
When all that I am not is released and let go, I AM....

Total, whole, eternal,infinite.
And such also is all that arises.
No more questions.Home.
No more you, I, us.
No more words. #Quote by Patsie Smith
Transformation quotes by Criss Jami
#189. The sacrifices we make to stay healthy, to look good, the tasty foods we skip, the guilt trips, the exercising - all these things require great discipline, care, and even a paradoxical, self-denying self-love of sorts in order to be properly executed. However it is regretful that so many of us today are not as passionate about our spiritual holiness as we are about our physical health. They are indeed both important - we should worship in every aspect of our lives - and one even, in a sense, entails the other. Although, this disproportion in said priorities is still very much expected: we humans have always taken a liking to trendiness and the temporal side of things, doing what is judged vainly in the eyes of man before that which is judged vitally and eternally in the eyes of God (i.e. "cleaning the outside of one's cup while leaving a filthy inside"). But in a way, it all goes to show that the man who fully hates discipline hates himself fully; for within the spirit is where The Holy One judges true wellness or malady. #Quote by Criss Jami
Transformation quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#190. A non-violent revolution is not a program of seizure of power. It is a program of transformation of relationships, ending in a peaceful transfer of power. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Transformation quotes by Angela Carter
#191. And each stroke of his tongue ripped off skin after successive skin, all the skins of a life in the world, and left behind a nascent patina of shining hairs. My earrings turned back to water and trickled down my shoulders; I shrugged the drops off my beautiful fur. #Quote by Angela Carter
Transformation quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#192. To pretend is to do nothing more than imagine life as something wonderful so that we don't have to incur the pain that it takes to actually make life wonderful. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Transformation quotes by Girdhar Joshi
#193. The great sexual energy that one has on abstinence can be transformed into art, poetry, dance, and inventions. #Quote by Girdhar Joshi
Transformation quotes by Tony Judt
#194. In the first place, this is a history of Europe's reduction. The constituent states of Europe could no longer aspire, after 1945, to international or imperial status. The two exceptions to this rule - the Soviet Union and, in part, Great Britain - were both only half-European in their own eyes and in any case, by the end of the period recounted here, they too were much reduced. Most of the rest of continental Europe had been humiliated by defeat and occupation. It had not been able to liberate itself from Fascism by its own efforts; nor was it able, unassisted, to keep Communism at bay. Post-war Europe was liberated - or immured - by outsiders. Only with considerable effort and across long decades did Europeans recover control of their own destiny. Shorn of their overseas territories Europe's erstwhile sea-borne empires (Britain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal) were all shrunk back in the course of these years to their European nuclei, their attention re-directed to Europe itself.
Secondly, the later decades of the twentieth century saw the withering away of the 'master narratives' of European history: the great nineteenth-century theories of history, with their models of progress and change, of revolution and transformation, that had fuelled the political projects and social movements that tore Europe apart in the first half of the century. This too is a story that only makes sense on a pan-European canvas: the decline of political fervor in the West (except #Quote by Tony Judt

#197. To me, the most amazing the most amazing transformation in my lifetime is not the revolution of the Sixties but the counter revolution of the Seventies, where they managed to put the cuckoo clock back together again #Quote by Terence McKenna

#198. Transformation, liberation and celebration are the themes of all my novels. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Transformation quotes by Murray Bookchin
#199. After the Second World War, capitalism underwent an enormous transformation, creating broad new social issues with extraordinary rapidity, issues that went beyond traditional proletarian demands for improved wages, hours, and working conditions: notably, environmental, gender, hierarchical, civic, and democratic issues. Capitalism, in effect, has generalized its threats to humanity, particularly with climatic changes that may alter the very face of the planet, oligarchical institutions of a global scope, and rampant urbanization that radically corrodes the civic life basic to grassroots politics. #Quote by Murray Bookchin
Transformation quotes by Suze Orman
#200. When someone chooses to value herself over the things she can buy, true transformation begins. #Quote by Suze Orman
