Quote of the Week

To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. 
- Henri Bergson

As long as we exist on this earth, we are constantly changing, growing and evolving.  Change is important, but not always easy.  How are you creating yourself?

  1. Change is very difficult for me. I am a creature of habit & structure!

  2. Linda, I LOVVVVVE this quote. Fabulous! Thank you.

    It illustrates how change is just one big never-ending cycle. So neat how this is illustrated in the poem with each word before the comma being repeating and leading to the next thought.

  3. An awesome quote, Linda. Without change there is definitely stagnation and that is never a pretty thing :)

  4. I don't think we have a choice about change. We can either flow with it or fight it. Flowing sounds much more pleasant:~)

    Regarding your question, I suppose for me it's trying new things and taking on challenges. It's also working on parts of myself that hold me back. This keeps me very busy:~)

  5. Meleah- I understand that, and the big changes are seldom easy. However, little changes take place all the time, even if we don't notice them.

    Davina- Life is just one big on-going cycle of change. The quote expresses building blocks, how one thing builds on another, and so on.

    Talon- Yes, we all must be constantly changing, else we grow stale.

    Sara- You're right, the changes occur with our without our blessings. Many times those changes are actually blessings in disguise. I am slowly coming to realize that. Which I guess is part of my evolution.
