Lawrence Ferlinghetti
We are all ONE, no matter in what form, space or time. As ONE we can change the world if we start changing ourselves.

Andrew Linzey
Poetry can change the world, just like any art can change the world, by changing consciousness. Of course this was the great slogan of the nineteen sixites hippies’ revolution—enlarge the area of consciousness, which quite often was done by psychedelic means.
Lawrence Ferlinghetti
‘I wish for a better life. I wish for food for my children. I wish that sexual abuse and exploitation in schools would stop.’ This is the dream of the African girl.

My goal in this music business is to be here as long as I’m alive. I want my music to be here. I want to be the Michael Jackson and the Prince of hip-hop. I want to be a legend. I want to change the world. I want to give them songs that mean something.
Petey Pablo
To change the world, we must first change the way the babies are being born.

There is no denying that we are still living in the capitalist world. I think that in order to survive and to change the world, you have to take care of yourself first. You have to survive yourself.
John Lennon
This world is like a mountain. Your echo depends on you. If you scream good things, the world will give it back. If you scream bad things, the world will give it back. Even if someone says badly about you, speak well about him. Change your heart to change the world.
Shams Tabrizi
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
Steve Jobs
Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
Steve Jobs
Through reading, I escaped the bad parts of my life in the South Bronx. And, through books, I got to travel the world and the universe. It, to me, was a passport out of my childhood and it remains a way – through the power of words – to change the world.
Sonia Sotomayor
No matter how you measure it, women and girls bear the brunt of poverty. But it’s also clear that women are also our greatest hope for ending it. We at CARE have long believed that if you change the life of a girl or woman, you don’t just change that individual, you change her family and then her community.
Helene D. Gayle
When you are finished changing, you are finished.
Benjamin Franklin
I write books to change the world. Perhaps I can only change one little piece of that world. But if I can empower teachers and good citizens to give these children, who are the poorest of the poor, the same opportunity we give our own kids, then I’ll feel my life has been worth it.
Jonathan Kozol
Over and over, since I was very young, I see things that are about to happen. You can call it heightened intuition; you can call it visions… I see it as a gift. It’s my role to give people a heightened awareness, to show that basically we can change the world.

Mother Teresa
I didn’t change the world.
Marat Safin
To change the world you’ll need a pen.
Donald Miller
When I was in first grade, everyone made fun of my name, of course. I think it’s kind of a big name to hold up when you’re nine years old. It seemed goofy. I used to tell people I wanted to change the world and they used to think, ‘This kid’s really weird’.
River Phoenix
It takes a different value system if you wish to change the world.

I’m certainly not ready to go changing the world overnight right now. I’m completely uninformed about a lot of our issues, a lot of the nation’s issues, not just Indigenous issues.
Cathy Freeman
I’m able to bring business expertise but, more importantly, operating experience. The people here at Google are young. Every day there are lots of new challenges. I keep things focused. The speech I give everyday is: “This is what we do. Is what you are doing consistent with that, and does it change the world?”
Eric Schmidt
Christlike love is the greatest need we have on this planet in part because righteousness was always supposed to accompany it. Pure Christlike love flowing from true righteousness can change the world.
Jeffrey R. Holland
Well in the scientific there is virtually no debate over certain things. For example, that we are changing the world. Humans are changing the world very radically, very dramatically. Climate change, which I assume is one of the points you’re alluding to, is at the heart of this.
Elizabeth Kolbert

We need to create a new paradigm of development and happiness that can generate a three-dimensional peace – peace with ourselves, peace with other people and peace with mother earth. Little people doing little things in little places everywhere can change the world.
Anwar Fazal
One of the best ways to convince someone is to use a telling example, a story, a narrative. When Steve Jobs announced a new product, he told a story, exzlaining how a product would change the world as we know it. He turned Apple into a story whose challenges and adventures you want to hear about.
Kabir Sehgal
When I’ve met people that work in any walk of life they say, “If it wasn’t for punk I wouldn’t be doing it this way.” I think spiritually, it did change the world a lot.

Madeleine Bunting
If we give girls and women the chance to change their lives, they can change the world.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Social media is changing the world, and we’re all here whitnessing it.
Ian Somerhalder
I was twenty when I discovered war and photography. I can’t say that I wanted to bear witness and change the world. I had no good moral reasons: I just loved adventure, I loved the poetry of war, the poetry of chaos, and I found that there was a kind of grace in weaving between the bullets.
Luc Delahaye
I believe in the future of AI changing the world. The question is, who is changing AI? It is really important to bring diverse groups of students and future leaders into the development of AI.

Camryn Manheim
I thought if we made an album that tried to change the world, or give it hope, it would really happen. But all people found was death and destruction and misery and self-hate. I learned that the world doesn’t want to be saved, and it will f**king punch you in the face if you try.
Gerard Way
You don’t have to start from scratch to have a massive impact on the world.
Jack Dorsey
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
I’d love to change the world, but I don’t know what to do
Alvin Lee
Again and again in history some people wake up. They have no ground in the crowd and move to broader deeper laws. They carry strange customs with them and demand room for bold and audacious action. The future speaks ruthlessly through them. They change the world.
Rainer Maria Rilke

Charles Eisenstein
I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them. Becoming a CoverGirl is truly and honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.

If you want to change the world, you change the world of a child.
Patricia Schroeder
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.

Michaela Coel
Despite our differences, we are all in this together. No act of kindness or compassion goes unnoticed. To change the world, take compassionate action within your immediate sphere of influence. To change yourself, start by being still and making time just to listen.
Edmund Bourne
We’re changing the world with technology.
Bill Gates
With regard to life, modern painting is a revolutionary activity…We need it in order to transform the world into a more humane place where mankind can live in liberty…We must accept these things with passion. It means that we must live imaginatively.

Guy Kawasaki
I think a lot of people came into rock n’ roll to try to change the world. I came into rock n’ roll to make music.

Albert Einstein
This is an amazing country, for all of its faults. My feeling is, dig in and let’s try to change the world. Dissent is not only your right, it’s your duty.
Susan Sarandon
We need to sacrifice something. And this is what I find lacking. We want to construct an image of ourselves as virtuous but we don’t want to suffer for our beliefs. We want to change the world with a Facebook like. That’s not how the world works.

John F. Kennedy
In any society, the artist has a responsibility. His effectiveness is certainly limited and a painter or writer cannot change the world. But they can keep an essential margin of non-conformity alive.

Dave Grohl
You can’t change the world, you can only change yourself.
Beatrice Wood
You know that you can’t go out there and change the world tomorrow morning. It just takes time, and the realization of that does not produce frustration. What produces frustration, is when you expect the world to join with your cause it’s so reasonable. It is not reasonable to unreasonable people.

I can’t change you and you can’t change me, but together we can work to change the world.
Germany Kent
Everything I’ve done hasn’t worked out – you know, some things aren’t as great as others – but I’m having so much fun, who cares? Isn’t that what an artist is supposed to do? We’re trying to change the world. Otherwise, why be an artist? You want to shake people up and make ’em think.
Beth Grant
My illusion is to have something to transmit. If I can’t change the world, at least I want to change the way people look at it.
Antoni Tapies
Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live. Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change.

Clothes aren’t going to change the world, the women who wear them will
Anne Klein
You need to be a little crazy to change the world, and you can’t really fake it.

Andy Andrews
The energy of the Kennedy years was completely compelling… I had a sense of a generous society eager to change the world. Idealism was very contagious. So that’s why I went to America. I didn’t intend to stay.
Howard Stringer
If we do not like what we see in the world, we must face what we don’t like in ourselves. As we change, the world will change with us.

Lisa Wilson
I realized if you can change a classroom, you can change a community, and if you change enough communities you can change the world.
Erin Gruwell
You don’t need 30 million people to listen to your podcast. If 10,000 people listen to your podcast, which is not a hard number to achieve, then 10,000 people are listening, and you can build a community, and literally change the world just recording into a microphone.
Chris Hardwick
At the end of the day, nobody can tell you how to tackle failure or how to handle change. The world is very good at encouraging you to go along with the status quo and at basking in your successes.
Viola Davis
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate these young [Israeli] designers. There’s too much strife in the world. If we become united in our creativity, not only in what we wear, but what we do, we will change the world. It’s truly an honor to be around such inspiration.
Donna Karan
I’m not saying that putting on makeup will change the world or even your life, but it can be a first step in learning things about yourself you may never have discovered otherwise. At worst, you could make a big mess and have a good laugh.
Kevyn Aucoin
Every time one person becomes peaceful in their own life, it changes the world.
Deepak Chopra

It is only in revolutionary struggle against the capitalists of every country, and only in union with the working women and men of the whole world, that we will achieve a new and brighter future-the socialist brotherhood of the workers.
Alexandra Kollontai
What is certainly true is that the American people, just like the German people, just like the British and people around the world, are seeing extraordinarily rapid change. The world is shrinking, the economies have become much more integrated and demographics are shifting.
Barack Obama
I think that Google has definitely influenced my moral values and the ethics. I think when Larry Page started the company, they weren’t in it for the money. They started it because they really wanted to create something that; one, they wanted, and two, they thought was going to change the world.
Anne Wojcicki
I’m not a historian, and I wouldn’t want to be. I want to change the world. Attack the elite. Overturn the hierarchy. Look at my stories and you’ll notice that the villains are always, always, those in power. The heroes are the little people. I hate the establishment. Always have, always will.
Terry Deary
Because primarily of the power of the Internet, people of modest means can band together and amass vast sums of money that can change the world for some public good if they all agree.
William J. Clinton
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis
It is more rewarding to watch money change the world than watch it accumulate.
Gloria Steinem
Am I going to change the world, or am I going to change me? Or maybe change the world a little bit, just by changing me?
Sarah Louise Delany
The practice of violence, like all action, changes the world, but the most probable change is a more violent world.
Hannah Arendt
Let us pick up our books and pencils. They are our most powerful weapon.
Malala Yousafzai
Writers and artists build by hand little worlds that they hope might effect change in real minds, in the real world where stories are read. A story can make us cry and laugh, break our hearts, or make us angry enough to change the world.
Grant Morrison
Isn’t it amazing that there are laws of the universe that you can actually find out about, live your life according to and change the world for the better?
Madonna Ciccone
We cannot change the world alone. To heal ourselves, to restore the earth to life, to create the situations in which freedom can flourish, we must work together in groups.
Steve Jobs was an iconic entrepreneur and businessman whose impact on technology was felt beyond Silicon Valley. He will be remembered for the innovation he brought to market and the inspiration he brought to the world.
Meg Whitman
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. What you see reflects your thinking. And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see. If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Helen Schucman
We are moving into a new world and the old negativity will be left behind. Through the law of cause and effect, we can change the world, one person at a time.
Dolores Cannon
[My favorite decade] probably the ’60s, because there were hardly any rules and heroin hadn’t shown up, so people hadn’t started dying. It was incredibly upbeat, and we almost did change the world. I guess that was the best one .
Lemmy Kilmister
…you can make little choices that can change the world to be a better, happier, lovelier place every day
Alicia Silverstone

Your future shines bright – find your purpose and go for it. Starting tomorrow, you can change the world.
Gabrielle Giffords
You have made people listen. You have made people care, and you have taught us that whether we are poor or prosperous, we have only one world to share. You have taught young people that they do have the power to change the world.
Kofi Annan
I’m not going to change the world overnight. It’s one person at a time, and hopefully they’re people in positions of power who can help people get in those roles and really, truly embrace colorblind casting.
Gabrielle Union
You don’t need to change the world; you need to change yourself.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
Someone had to change the world. And obviously I was the one for the job.
Joan Baez
More women speaking up and seizing the helm of power can create its own momentum. It can change the culture that helps perpetuate those external forces.
Nancy Birdsall
Let’s embrace more of life, not less. Balanced people don’t change the world, and I’d rather spend my time feeling worn out from meaningful activities and projects.
Chris Guillebeau
I don’t feel like I can change the world. I don’t even try. I only want to change this small life that I see standing in front of me, which is suffering.

Steve Jobs
When I was younger, I had big visions of changing the world.
Rick Danko
Financial firms are sending their back-office jobs overseas. But what do fine artists do? They create something new, unexpected, and delightful that changes the world. MFA abilities are harder to outsource and more important in an abundant world.

The Senate is extremely slow: They have enormous difficulty passing the bills that even get through the House. That’s the reality that I’ve recognized in my two years: that it takes time to change the world.
Kirsten Gillibrand
I am totally confident not that the world will get better, but that we should not give up the game before all the cards have been played. The metaphor is deliberate; life is a gamble. Not to play is to foreclose any chance of winning. To play, to act, is to create at least a possibility of changing the world.
Howard Zinn
Sharing education, sharing a book…that’s what changes the world.
Brad Meltzer
What words are in you that can change the world?
Tracy Hickman
I am surprised at all the people in the high-tech industry focused on “making money”… If that’s all they want to do, they should have a $100 printing press in their basements and they will truly “make money.” Instead, if we focus all that energy on innovation, we’ll change the world for the best.

Tom Brokaw
Change almost never fails because it’s too early. It almost always fails because it’s too late.
Seth Godin

David Hawkins
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
June Jordan
Only the people who have gone beyond the world can change the world.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
These are the best reasons to do anything in life. People who say things like this are the kind of people who change the world. Who prevent the world from ending. Or at least they can change the inner world of a reader and that is a sacred power.
Martine Leavitt
The artist has tremendous power to change the world.
Chogyam Trungpa
Not to say that you should be constantly trying to change the world, but I think it’s important to know that whatever we do has an implication and has an effect, and because of that it is political.
Jake Gyllenhaal
I am going to make everything around me beautiful – that will be my life.
Elsie de Wolfe
When I was 25, I believed I could change the world. At 41, I have come to the realization that I cannot change my wife, my church, or my kids, to say nothing of the world. Try as I might, I have not been able to manufacture outcomes the way I thought I could, either in my own life or other people’s.

Art cannot change the world, but it can contribute to changing the consciousness and drives of the men and women who could change the world.
Herbert Marcuse
You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you probably can’t, but also knowing that literature is indispensable to the world… The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you alter, even by a millimeter, the way… people look at reality, then you can change it.
James A. Baldwin
Two weeks to change the world, fourteen days to destroy it.

I had a student once come up to me and we were talking about this incident, and, of course, I never had the right thing to say. But later on, I realized I should have said: Don’t write about trying to change the world, just write about a changed world or a world that’s not changing. Let that do the work.

Eric Massa
For most of the millions of people who watch TED videos at the office, it’s a middlebrow diversion and a source of factoids to use on your friends. Except TED thinks it’s changing the world, like if ‘This American Life’ suddenly mistook itself for Doctors Without Borders.

Jacqueline Novogratz
Developing compassion for Congress and politicians is a good way to begin practicing the new social activism if you want to make effective changes in the world. Perhaps the most startling new insight of all is that there is no other way to effectively change the world.

Willie Nelson
Let your smile change the world! Never let the world change your smile!
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
I think there’s a mythology that if you want to change the world, you have to be sainted, like Mother Teresa or Nelson Mandela or Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Ordinary people with lives that go up and down and around in circles can still contribute to change.

Imagine if we started raising generations of children who stood uncompromisingl y on the Word of God, knew how to defend the Christian faith, could answer the skeptical questions of this age, and had a fervor to share the gospel from the authority of God’s Word with whomever they met! This could change the world.
Ken Ham
Your idea doesn’t have to be big. It just has to be yours alone. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing. The more amazing, the more people will click with your idea. The more people click with your idea, the more it will change the world.
Hugh Jackman
When you drive to the grocery store, your intention is not to change the world, it just happens to have that impact.

Josh Groban

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want and if they can’t find them, make them.
George Bernard Shaw
I remember being young in the 1960s. We had a great sense of the future, a great big hope. This is what is missing in the youth today. This being able to dream and to change the world.

When you have kids you do grow up. I have just started realising it now-it changes the world, having children.
David Beckham
I don’t think anybody who carries a rifle carries the future. Because I don’t believe that you can really change the world by killing and shooting. You have the change it by creating and competing.

The craving to change the world is perhaps a reflection of the craving to change ourselves.

Melody Beattie
All great changes are preceded by chaos.
Deepak Chopra
The leverage Wall Street has to change the world is greater than technology. At a very young age, you’re in the room with CEOs, making critical decisions. It should be exciting. It is exciting.
Ken Moelis
I don’t think books can change the world, but when the world begins to change, it searches for different books.
Shlomo Sand

Andrew Mason
You start out wanting to change the world through language, and end up thinking it’s enough to tell a few good jokes.

Ray Bradbury
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead
Changing the world’s oceans to increase their uptake of CO2, as other geoengineering solutions propose, is equally dangerous, as the increased resulting acidity of the oceans kills tiny crustaceans, such as krill, that are the basis of the pyramid of life on the planet as we know it.

Everybody wants to change the world. But I guess how we want to change it is a little bit more quietly than other bands.
Margo Timmins
If you want to change the world, change it through the market

Michael Marshall Smith
Hunger also changes the world – when eating can’t be a habit, then neither can seeing.
Maxine Hong Kingston
If you can change your mind, you can change the world. Before you can be creative, you must be courageous. Creativity is the destination, but courage is the journey.
Joey Reiman
Personally, I believe there’s a limitation to how much politics can change the world–but there’s no limitation to how much individuals can change the world.
Mariane Pearl
Change marriage and you change the world. Convince people that government, not God, lays down the rules for marriage, and they will believe more strongly that they determine right and wrong, that not even the world’s rulers are subject to a higher authority.
R. C. Sproul
A book can change the world… Every book a child reads creates new neurons in that child’s brain.
Jackie French

Anne Frank
Social networking is playing a huge role in creating awareness and mobilizing support for all kinds of common interests. What better way to use this remarkable tool than to change the world?

Mahatma Gandhi
Let us pray for peace: peace in the world and in each of our hearts.
Pope Francis
I think its pretty clear that film is the pre-eminent art form of our age. If Michaelangelo or Leonardo Da Vinci were alive today they’d be making Avatar, not painting a chapel. Film is incredibly democratic and accessible, it’s probably the best option if you actually want to change the world, not just re-decorate it.
Children can change the world.
Jane Goodall
Stop trying to change the world since it is only the mirror. Man’s attempt to change the world by force is as fruitless as breaking a mirror in the hope of changing his face. Leave the mirror and change your face. Leave the world alone and change your conceptions of yourself.
Neville Goddard
While it may be difficult to change the world, it is always possible to change the way we look at it.

Michael Pollan
You really can change the world if you care enough.

Peter Thiel
If I decided I’m the girl to change the world, I can do it anytime.
Demi Lovato
We are a G20 country. One of the biggest world economies. We’re in the middle of three continents. Changing Saudi Arabia for the better means helping the region and changing the world. So this is what we are trying to do here. And we hope we get support from everyone.
Mohammad bin Salman
Even a mediocre idea created and presented with passion can change the world.
Boland T. Jones
As a speaker, I can inspire people to change but as a writer I can guide people to change. That’s why books are so important. As a pastor, though, I can be a part of creating the change the world so desperately needs.
Erwin McManus
Remember, nobody changes the world on their own.
Chris Hadfield
If we behave like those on the other side, then we are the other side. Instead of changing the world, all we’ll achieve is a reflection of the one we want to destroy.
Jean Genet
Mathematicians also make terrible salesmen. Physicists can discover the same thing as a mathematician and say ‘We’ve discovered a great new law of nature. Give us a billion dollars.’ And if it doesn’t change the world, then they say, ‘There’s an even deeper thing. Give us another billion dollars.’
Gian-Carlo Rota

Robin Sharma
Get Creative – You Will Surprise Yourself and Change the World!
Ernie J Zelinski
When we hear music that we love that changes the world for us, we might as well at least aspire to something like that and aim high. You’re probably not going to get beyond your dreams. So you might as well make them big.
Jon Gordon
You’re going to change the world? Well, go ahead and try. You’ll give it up at a certain point and change yourself instead.
Philip Johnson
If a government is to do great new things, it will need more support. If a government is to change the world, it will need mass support. This is one of the discoveries of modern government.
Bernard Crick
You suffer from the oldest delusion in politics. You think you can change the world by talking to a leader. Leaders are the effects, not the causes of changes.

Rodney Brooks
Without love, violence will change the world; it will change it into a more violent one.

Bianca Balti
I may not be able to change the world I see around me, but I can change the way I see the world within me.
John C. Maxwell

Neale Donald Walsch
Changes don’t happen in the world by playing it safe, taking risks is the way to change the world.

Teachers inspire the smallest hearts to grow big enough to change the world.

Don’t accept the excuse of complexity. A lot of people will tell you, this is too challenging, this is too complicated, yeah well I know other people simplify but that’s not for me, this is a complicated business. They’re wrong. You can change the world in 140 characters.

Richard Bach
I feel like I’m a showbiz professional. This is my job, it’s going to have ups and downs. I’m lucky to be able to do this for a living, but I also do feel like I don’t anticipate changing the world. All I can really do is do a good job when I’m hired to do a job, and be happy at home.

Guy Spier
Every day of your life, you change the world. Absolutely, yes, we’re out to change the world. I mean, you change it whether you like it or not. You wake up and you talk to the grocer. You either kick your dog or you pet him. There’s a million decisions you have every day where you change the world.

David Hockney

Steve Jobs
If you think we can’t change the world, It just means you’re not one of those that will
Jacque Fresco
We were wild-eyed hippies from the late ’60s. We still had the exuberance of the mind-expanding ’60s – that Tolkienesque, Zeppelin, androgynous, wood nymph, forest fairy kind of innocence. It sounds stupid now, but we felt we were changing the world with music.

Tim Ferriss
Being willing is not enough. We must do.
Leonardo da Vinci
The most difficult matter is not so much to change the world as yourself.

Colin Mochrie
It’s easy to play it safe, but the reality is that if you want to keep changing the world for customers, which we all want to do, you have to make bets and you have to be willing to fail.
Andy Jassy
I always give three pieces of advice to all the teenage girls when I do my talks: long country walks – it’s important to get some fresh air in your lungs, and be in contact with your body; masturbation – it takes the edge off, it’ll get you through; and the revolution – believing in changing the world.

Acceptance is not a state of passivity or inaction. We are not saying you can’t change the world, right wrongs or replace evil with good. Acceptance is, in fact, the first step to successful action. If you don’t fully accept a situation precisely the way it is, you will have difficulty changing it.
Peter McWilliams
The first step toward changing the world is to change our vision of the world and of our place in it.

Wilferd Peterson

Condoleezza Rice
Because I don’t think God trusts just anybody with so much heartache. The world has not yet seen what God can do with a man who gives both halves of a broken heart to him. And I don’t doubt that a man like that can change the world…or at least a little part of it.
Chris Fabry

Guy Kawasaki
I’ve always wanted to be part of something that would radically change the world. . . . People forget the power of inspiration. All of humanity went to the moon with the Apollo missions.
