"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another."
--- Anatole France
"It's the most unhappy people who most fear change."
--- Mignon McLaughlin
(I learned if you fear pain, you fear change)
"You are responsible for your life. You can't keep blaming somebody else for your dysfunction. Life is really about moving on."
--- Oprah Winfrey
"Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken."
--- Frank Herbert
"Take a second to think about this: in your life you search and search for the right person for you. Every time you break up with someone you get one step closer to that person. You should look at moving on as getting closer to meeting the one."
--- Ian Philpot
(Actually, it is about BECOMING the person you wish to attract)
"Letting go doesn't mean giving up... it means moving on. It is one of the hardest things a person can do. Starting at birth, we grasp onto anything we can get our hands on, and hold on as if we will cease to exist when we let go. We feel that letting go is giving up, quitting, and that as we all know is cowardly. But as we grow older we are forced to change our way of thinking. We are forced to realize that letting go means accepting things that cannot be. It means maturing and moving on, no matter how hard you have to fight yourself to do so."
