Wednesday Quotable

About 15 years ago, I was starting my college experience at Lee University in Tennessee.  I started as a Music Major, but after a year decided on a different path.  I ended up studying psychology, the study of human behavior.  In developmental psychology, we were given the definition of growth.  To paraphrase, the definition of growth in developmental psychology was positive change over time.  The fact is that from birth, we are in a constant state of change.  Either it’s positive change (growth), or negative change (atrophy, death, deterioration).  Let’s embrace and strive towards positive change.  If you do not embrace and seek change, change will find you on it’s terms.

It is not necessary to change.  Survival is not mandatory.

~W. Edwards Deming

Wednesday Quotable

“When you are through changing, you are through.”
Bruce Barton

Barton was an author and congressman who was big on optimism.  He continued his tone of optimism, hard work, and self reliance throughout some of the most difficult times, including the Great Depression.
