A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.
Richard Avedon
The most amazing thing to me about the sea is the tide. A harbour like St. Ives is totally transformed in a very short space of time by the arrival or departure of the sea.

Tony Kushner

I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Michael Jordan
Any ritual is an opportunity for transformation. To do a ritual, you must be willing to be transformed in some way. The inner willingness is what makes the ritual come alive and have power. If you aren’t willing to be changed by the ritual, don’t do it.

David Sheff
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
Wendy Mass
We do not escape our boundaries or our innermost being. We do not change. It is true we may be transformed, but we always walk within our boundaries, within the marked-off circle.
Ernst Junger
Evolution, thus, is merely contingent on certain processes articulated by Darwin: variation and selection. No longer is a fixed object transformed, as in transformational evolution, but an entirely new start is, so to speak, made in every generation.
Ernst Mayr
You are the world. When you transform yourself, the world you live in will also be transformed.
Deepak Chopra
in this society, dominated as it is by the profit-seeking ventures of monopoly corporations, health has been callously transformed into a commodity – a commodity that those with means are able to afford, but that is too often entirely beyond the reach of others.
Angela Davis
When I wished to sing of love, it turned to sorrow. And when I wished to sing of sorrow, it was transformed for me into love.
Franz Schubert
The truth is that, though we were justified by faith alone, the faith that justifies is never alone (it always produces fruit, ‘good works,’…a transformed life).
J. I. Packer
My characters who come back from death are worse for wear. In some ways, they’re not even the same characters anymore. The body may be moving, but some aspect of the spirit is changed or transformed, and they’ve lost something.
George R. R. Martin
Climbing Jacob”s Ladder is a gutsy, glowing account of one man’s encounter with a potent spiritual practice and how it transformed his life. This is a precious book – that rare combination of solid wisdom and good literature.
Larry Dossey

Lukas Foss
I would rather be a transformed ape than a degenerate son of Adam.

Desmond Tutu
When Pearl Harbor was bombed, you know, there was a whole lot of buy-in to a national mobilization. And 25% of the economy was transformed in six months. And we’re not calling for six months, we’re saying 15 years. That’s about what we’ve got. And probably all that we’ve got.
Jill Stein
God has decided, for his own good reasons, that people are not transformed outside of community.
John Ortberg

Jose Saramago
The victims of crime have been transformed into a group oppressively burdened by a system designed to protect them.
Ronald Reagan

I murdered the personality I was born with and transformed myself from a butterfly back in into a caterpillar. That night I learned to seek the shadows, to prefer silence
Edith Hahn Beer
While conflicts have expanded and deepened and transformed, actors have transformed, and humanitarian assistance is transforming. Protection work is transforming and taking on another character.
Peter Maurer
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
Muhammad Ali
Our thesis is that the idea of a self-adjusting market implied a stark utopia. Such an institution could not exist for any length of time without annihilating the human and natural substance of society; it would have physically destroyed man and transformed his surroundings into a wilderness.
Karl Polanyi
For the first time I saw a medley of haphazard facts fall into line and order. All the jumbles and recipes and hotchpotch of the inorganic chemistry of my boyhood seemed to fit into the scheme before my eyes-as though one were standing beside a jungle and it suddenly transformed itself into a Dutch garden.
C.P. Snow
The most visible joy can only reveal itself to us when we’ve transformed it, within.
Rainer Maria Rilke
It was a moment [when I had found God] that so transformed my life. And I say this is so corny, but it was like the grass was green, the sky was blue. And I can’t begin to articulate – as much as they say I’m a wordsmith – what really happened.
Paula White
I guess some of the most delightful moments of my teenage years were when I was trying not just to educate myself but trying to educate others. And I could see how the lives of children could be transformed in that.

Hamish Bowles
A fear Paul had transformed all these years, like a gifted alchemist, into anger and rebellion.
Kim Edwards
For the amoral herd that fears boredom above all else, everything becomes entertainment. Sex and sport, politics and the arts are transformed into entertainment. … Nothing is immune from the demand that boredom be relieved (but without personal involvement, for mass society is a spectator society).
Merold Westphal
Since taking office, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party have transformed the Temporary Foreign Worker Program – which was originally designed to bring in temporary workers on a limited basis when no Canadian could be found – into one that has brought in a large pool of vulnerable workers.
Justin Trudeau
When I’m not actually doing my work, I’m planning it or thinking about it or reading things that on some level are transformed into performance fantasies. I have no active interests. I never go anywhere or do anything that transports me outside the boundaries of my mind.
George Carlin
Only flies have true halteres. In fact, the scientific term for flies, ‘diptera,’ means ‘two wings.’ Most insects, including bees, have two pairs of wings for a total of four. In flies, the hindwing pairs have been transformed through evolution into the halteres.
Michael Dickinson
Societies in which most people depend for most of their goods and services on the personal whim, kindness, or skill of another are called underdeveloped, while those in which living has been transformed into a process of ordering from an all-encompassing store catalogue are called advanced.

It can be argued that the U.S. brokerage and investment banking industry has transformed the modern American stock market into nothing more than a mechanism for transferring wealth from shareholders to management.
Peter Schiff
The act of learning to read added an entirely new circuit to our hominid brain’s repertoire. The long developmental process of learning to read deeply changed the very structure of that circuit’s connections, which rewired the brain, which transformed the nature of human thought.
Maryanne Wolf
Mastering the art of resilience does much more than restore you to who you once thought you were. Rather, you emerge from the experience transformed into a truer expression of who you were really meant to be.
Carol Orsborn

A poet feels the impulse to create a work of art when the passive awe provoked by an event is transformed into a desire to express that awe in a rite of worship.
W. H. Auden
We must reject the thought that evangelism is to be separated from the importance of standing against evil. We weren’t saved just to escape this world and go to Heaven. Transformed people transform the culture while standing boldly against evil.
James Robison
As America is transformed from a 90 percent European American nation, as it was in the 1960s, to one where we will soon be a minority, should we not ask some pertinent questions. Is this racial diversity enriching, or will it be damaging to our social fabric?
David Duke
The fact that I could secure an opera engagement made me realize I had within me the making of an artist, if I would really labor for such an end. When I became thoroughly convinced of this, I was transformed from an amateur into a professional in a single day.

Paulo Coelho
But now with the living conditions deteriorating, and with the sure knowledge that we are slated for destruction, we have been transformed into an implacable army of liberation

Bell Hooks
All over the planet, nature is being transformed into ‘un-nature’ at breakneck speed…My life is part of natural history. I long to know where that history came from and where it is going.
Hiroshi Sugimoto
The sexual revolution transformed the American West: Now even cowboys can get laid.

Tobias Harris
There are a great number of Mexicans who live every day worried about the lack of employment and opportunities. Those conditions also damage the image of Mexico abroad, and that is the Mexico that must be transformed.
Enrique Pena Nieto
To me, the lasting impression of any good wine is the thought of its maker. Those whose efforts transformed the fruits of the soil into a finished work of art. Those who pulled from the hectic passage of time an ordered memory. They are immortalized by their wine in my glass.
Dave Chambers

Allan Sekula
Technology has transformed how we live, learn and work, but not everyone has been able to participate in these developments.
Julian Castro
The bulk of the utility industry today believes that coal and nuclear are the only solutions we have. Nuclear is greener but has the other issues. Coal, they think, can be transformed into the so-called clean coal technologies.
Vinod Khosla

John Howard

Paulo Coelho
I feel the matter of my heart being transformed, metallized, in an optimism of steel.

Bokar Rinpoche
Everything should be understood, and anything can be transformed – that is the modern view.
Susan Sontag

Pope John Paul II
There’s something essentially fictive about a photograph. That doesn’t mean that if you understand that, and you understand how the world is transformed by the camera, that you can’t use the limitations or the transformation to have an observation that is a very subtle perception of the world.
Stephen Shore
I came to Christ when I was thirty-eight. That transformed my life.
Jennifer O’Neill
Baidu and Google are great companies, but there are a lot of things you can do outside them. Just as electricity and the Internet transformed the world, I think the rise of modern A.I. technology will create a lot of opportunities both for new startups and for incumbent companies to transform.
Andrew Ng
The development of physics in the twentieth century already has transformed the consciousness of those involved with it. The study (of modern physics) produces insights into the nature of reality very similar to those produced by the study of eastern philosophy.
Gary Zukav

Donald Bren
Religion is not about accepting twenty impossible propositions before breakfast, but about doing things that change you. It is a moral aesthetic, an ethical alchemy. If you behave in a certain way, you will be transformed.
Karen Armstrong
Once the object has been constructed, I have a tendency to rediscover in it, transformed and displaced, images, impressions, facts which have deeply moved me (often without my knowing it).
Alberto Giacometti
Method helps intuition when it is not transformed into dictatorship. Intuition augments method if it does not instill anarchy. In every moment of our semiotic existence, method and intuition complement one another.
Mihai Nadin
The Roman Catholic Church, had it captured me, as it nearly did, would have sent me on some mission of danger and sacrifice and utilised me as a martyr; the Church established by law transformed me into an unbeliever and an antagonist.

Sai Baba
I told myself ‘Everything is a being! The shout that passes into the air is an entity like an animal, since it is born, produces a movement, and is again transformed, in order to die. So the fearful mind that believes in incorporeal beings is not wrong. What are they?
Guy de Maupassant
You’ll never know that just sitting across a room full of people, I have transformed you into a goddess. A destroyer of despair.
Henry Rollins
When Sonic Youth writes music, we write everything in a very communal way. It doesn’t matter who brought something in initially; it all gets transformed by the band.

Chris Abani
Who am I? I’m a man; an American, a father, a teacher, but most of all, I am a person who knows how the arts can change lives, because they transformed mine. I was a dancer.
Jacques d’Amboise
We come, in our trust, unto God, and the moment we so embrace Him, by committing our total being and eternity to Him, we find every thing is transformed. There is life in us from God; a kind of Christ-consciousness is opened in us, testifying with the apostle,–Christ liveth in me.
Horace Bushnell
Man cannot be transformed from bad to good overnight.
Mahatma Gandhi

John F. Kennedy
An angel, legend has it, took pity on a little shepherd girl who had nothing to give to the Infant Jesus in his manger. The angel handed her a weed, but first transformed it into this beautiful flower of winter.

My worldview, my philosophy, my attitudes, my relationships, my parenting, my marriage — everything has been transformed by my relationship with Christ.
Lee Strobel

Joseph Stiglitz
Dinner was meat – not hunks of meat, as in Australia, but pathetic scraps of meat, as in Britain – which the girls upstairs transformed into edible dishes by heating it in secret ways and adding bits of stuff to it.
Clive James
The problem is, we’re moving to software-as-service, which can be yanked or transformed at any moment. The ability of your PC to run independent code is an important safety valve.
Jonathan Zittrain
I…have always known that my destiny was, above all, a literary destiny — that bad things and some good things would happen to me, but that, in the long run, all of it would be converted into words. Particularly the bad things, since happiness does not need to be transformed: happiness is its own end.
Jorge Luis Borges
The internet, our greatest tool of emancipation, has been transformed into the most dangerous facilitator of totalitarianism we have ever seen. The internet is a threat to human civilization.

Liz Truss
Pain can be washed out with a song. / Pain can become jazz digested and transformed.
Alexis De Veaux
One who has drunk at the fountain of spiritual happiness says good-by of his own accord to the satisfactions that come from a higher professional status … What is the greatest sign of success for a teacher thus transformed? It is to be able to say, “The children are now working as if I did not exist.

Francis William Aston
All existing things are really one. We regard those that are beautiful and rare as valuable, and those that are ugly as foul and rotten The foul and rotten may come to be transformed into what is rare and valuable, and the rare and valuable into what is foul and rotten.
Without natural resources life itself is impossible. From birth to death, natural resources, transformed for human use, feed, clothe, shelter, and transport us. Upon them we depend for every material necessity, comfort, convenience, and protection in our lives. Without abundant resources prosperity is out of reach.
Gifford Pinchot
In Calvinism and sectarianism man became more and more transformed into an abstract moral subject, as in Descartes he was considered an epistemological subject.

Joseph de Maistre
The chicken had his wish, and was magically transformed into a fox. Then he found that he could not digest grain.
Idries Shah

Frederic Joliot-Curie

Tom Graves
Our politics, religion, news, athletics, education and commerce have been transformed into congenial adjuncts of show business, largely without protest or even much popular notice. The result is that we are a people on the verge of amusing ourselves to death.
Neil Postman
Every feeling is a field of energy. A pleasant feeling is an energy which can nourish. Irritation is a feeling which can destroy. Under the light of awareness, the energy of irritation can be transformed into and energy which nourishes.
Nhat Hanh
Also a great part of Polish industry proved to have existed only to support the Soviet military industry, and it became superfluous and incapable of being transformed into anything else. We did not foresee that or the magnitude of these phenomena.

Nirmala Srivastava
The whole of the hydrogen on the earth might be transformed at once and the success of the experiment published at large to the universe as a new star.

Leonardo da Vinci
The atoms of the earth are formed inside of stars. Nothing really dies, everything is transformed.
Kelly Easton
If I was the Jackie Robinson of golf, I sure didn’t do a very good job of it. Jackie was followed by hundreds of great black ballplayers who have transformed their sport… But there are hardly any black kids coming up through the ranks of golf today.
Charlie Sifford
[For Before the Dawn] it was in the hands of a fantastic drummer and percussionist and who drove it into another moment in time. It’s such a poignant song and it was transformed into entirely different beast.
Kate Bush

Vash Young
If the records that I make have one thing in common, it’s that there is little recapitulation, and the idea is that it should end in a place very different from where it began, and that you’ve heard musicians undergo a change or be irreversibly transformed.
David Grubbs
HubSpot’s offices occupy several floors of a 19th-century furniture factory that has been transformed into the cliche of what the home of a tech startup should look like: exposed beams, frosted glass, a big atrium, modern art hanging in the lobby.
Daniel Lyons
I will not rest until I have transformed the landscape of American politics.
Newt Gingrich

Transformed from chronic to acute and bloody?
Robert Frost
It was over in a blink of an eye, that moment when aviation stirred the modern imagination. Aviation was transformed from recklessness to routine in Lindbergh’s lifetime.

George Will
Transformed people transform people.
Richard Rohr
Tatcha is my favorite beauty brand. They were also founded in San Francisco. Their entire line is based off of geisha tradition and ritual. The line has transformed my skin.

Wayne Mack
When the telecoms system in the U.K. was made to compete and to seek private capital, many worried that the service would get worse and there would be a further shortage of investment. They were wrong on both counts. Technology was transformed, and investment soared. Prices went down; choice and usage went up.
John Redwood
Jesus did not die just to save us from the penalty of sin, nor even just to make us holy in our standing before God. He died to purify for Himself a people eager to obey Him, a people eager to be transformed into His likeness.
Jerry Bridges

Dan Brown
Our emotions are not transformed by trying harder, but by seeing more clearly.
Mike Bickle

Haruki Murakami
We learn and grow and are transformed not so much by what we do but by why and how we do it.
Sharon Salzberg

Christian Dior

Gerard Debreu
The technology [semiconductors] which has transformed practical existence is largely an application of what was discovered by these allegedly irresponsible [natural] philosophers.
Cyril Norman Hinshelwood
The spectator-buyer is meant to envy herself as she will become if she buys the product. She is meant to imagine herself transformed by the product into an object of envy for others, an envy which will then justify her loving herself.
John Berger
Both Proust and Joyce record the ways in which human perspectives can be transformed. In Portrait, Stephen Dedalus is constantly undergoing epiphanies, but their effects are transitory: the new synthetic complex quickly falls apart. Proust’s characters, by contrast, often achieve lasting changes of perspective.
Philip Kitcher
My life was transformed by the Labour government of 1945. It was transformative for millions of people like me, you know – education, the health service. It was proof that politics can make life better for people; that a social dream can become a social reality by the power of government.
Glenda Jackson
The United States stands willing to work with a transformed Palestinian Authority with new leaders coming to the front.
Colin Powell
Buddhism is a path of supreme optimism, for one of its basic tenets is that no human life or experience is to be wasted or forgotten, but all should be transformed into a source of wisdom and compassionate living.
Taitetsu Unno
We need silence to be alone with God, to speak to him, to listen to him, to ponder his words deep in our hearts. We need to be alone with God in silence to be renewed and transformed. Silence gives us a new outlook on life. In it we are filled with the energy of God himself that makes us do all things with joy.
Mother Teresa
I think casting is everything. You get a great cast and – certainly, as happens in ‘The Hour’ – so many of those performances on the page were transformed by those actors who took those parts and made it into something completely different.
Abi Morgan
And as the hour approached for the execution, in his own mind, Collins became both the executioner and the victim. He would pace up and down, transformed in almost a kind of exorcism when he knew he was responsible for taking someone’s life.
Liam Neeson
When an idea exclusively occupies the mind, it is transformed into an actual physical or mental state.
Swami Vivekananda
Classics are constantly being re-imagined and transformed, and the originals are none the worse for it; they endure.

At all levels – with men and women – the 3-point shot has utterly transformed the way the game is played. More and more, the players are spread out, looking to pop behind the 3-point arc.

Tayeb Salih
Everything on earth is being continuously transformed, because the earth is alive . and it has a soul. We are part of that soul, so we rarely recognize that it is working for us.

These technologies gather unprecedented data streams leading to formidable challenges around privacy, profiling, manipulation, and personal safety.
Oren Etzioni
My paintings are titled after they are finished. I paint from remembered landscapes that I carry with me – and remembered feelings of them, which of course become transformed. I could certainly never mirror nature. I would more like to paint what it leaves with me.
Joan Mitchell
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The character of the faith that allows us to be transformed by suffering and darkness is not doubt-free certainty; rather, it is tenacious obedience.
John Ortberg
The problem with the screenplay is that it’s not literature, and it’s not a film. It’s a very weird, technical kind of blueprint that will be absolutely transformed into something else that is not that, you know? Honestly, a screenplay is no literature.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I think one of my father’s great legacies is the people that he inspired and the generation that he inspired transformed America through civil rights, women’s rights, equal justice, and they’ve passed that on to their children and grandchildren.
Caroline Kennedy
Christmas can be transformed into a celebration more attuned to honoring the One whose birthday we celebrate.

Anthony Caro
I was 12 in ’55 when rock and roll hit. It just completely transformed me.

Richard Rohr
It was the first follower that transformed the lone nut into a leader.

Phyllis Chesler
Your garbage, transformed, is your gift.
Yehuda Berg
Turning the pages of scriptural history from beginning to end, we learn of the ultimate pioneer-even Jesus Christ.

Thomas S. Monson
Priorities are fundamental to politics because of inevitable information bottlenecks: these bottlenecks can be transformed by rare good organisation but they cannot be eradicated.
Dominic Cummings
For Christmas, 1939, a girl friend gave me a book token which I used to buy Linus Pauling’s recently published Nature of the Chemical Bond. His book transformed the chemical flatland of my earlier textbooks into a world of three-dimensional structures.
Max Perutz
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Winston Churchill
How can it be said that the weakness of the human will is aided so as to enable it to aspire effectually to the choice of good, when the fact is, that it must be wholly transformed and renewed?
John Calvin
Once you can open yourself to joy, you feel as if you’ve transformed your sadness into illumination, which is really all that art is. All we want to do is transform the negative emotions into light. We want to compost them into light.
Sandra Cisneros
The man who works recognizes his own product in the world that has actually been transformed by his work. He recognizes himself in it, he sees his own human reality in it he discovers and reveals to others the objective reality of his humanity of the originally abstract and purely subjective idea he has of himself
Alexandre Kojeve
The early Christians rejoiced when they were deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles o popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I cannot prove to you that God exists, but my work has proved empirically that the pattern of God exists in every man and that this pattern in the individual has at its disposal the greatest transforming energies of which life is capable. Find this pattern in your own individual self and life is transformed.
Carl Jung

Mark Tobey
Education makes us the human beings we are. It has major impacts on economic development, on social equity, gender equity. In all kinds of ways, our lives are transformed by education and security. Even if it had not one iota of effect [on] security, it would still remain in my judgment the biggest priority in the world.
Amartya Sen
You will be transformed by what you read.
Deepak Chopra
Nobody has ever called Shea Stadium a cathedral. In style, it was more like the old warehouse or outdated movie theater that Korean worshippers have transformed into a church in the borough of Queens. Not a cathedral – but a place where people go to be fulfilled, nonetheless.
George Vecsey
When you die, you are extinguished. From being you will be transformed to non-being. A god does not necessarily dwell among our capricious atoms.
Ingmar Bergman
India has to be transformed into a developed nation, a prosperous nation and a healthy nation, with a value system.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
When Obamacare was introduced, Republicans and Democrats knew the status quo wasn’t working. But Republicans rejected the notion that to help 2 million people with preexisting conditions get access to care, we needed a 2,000-page bill that transformed one-sixth of the economy.

Debbie Ford

John of Damascus
Our status as a land of equal opportunity has made us a rich and powerful nation, but it has also transformed lives. It has given people like me the chance to grow up knowing that no dream was too big and no goal out of reach.
Marco Rubio
In every new generation, the impulses supposed to have been rooted out by discipline in the child break forth again when the struggle for existence – of the individual in society, of the society in the life of the state – begins. These passions are not transformed by the prevalent education of the day, but only repressed.
Ellen Key
Once innocence–an all too-brief state of being, if such a one exists–encounters experience, it is transformed. If that transformation is understood, it becomes knowledge. And if that knowledge is employed, then it becomes wisdom.
Ana Castillo
Everything on Earth is being continuously transformed.
Paulo Coelho
My life has been transformed by great teachers all the way.
Jeff Goldblum
Cancer is a passport to intimacy. It is an invitation, maybe even a mandate, to enter the most vital arenas of human life, the most sensitive and the most frightening, the ones that we never want to go to – but when we do go there, we feel incredibly transformed.
Bruce Feiler
Healthcare is yet to be transformed by technology.
Joshua Kushner
[Kafka] transformed the profoundly antipoetic material of a highly bureaucratized society into the great poetry of the novel; he transformed a very ordinary story of a man who cannot obtain a promised job . . . into myth, into epic, into a kind of beauty never before seen.
Milan Kundera
The most important thing about translucent people is that their life has been deeply transformed by an awakening.
Arjuna Ardagh
By the end of the third decade of this century, all of American life – politics, international relations, our homes, our jobs, our industries, the kind of cars we drive – will be forever transformed by the climate and energy challenge.
Joseph J. Romm
In other words, my literary agenda begins by acknowledging that America has transformed me. It does not end until I show how I (and the hundreds of thousands like me) have transformed America.
Bharati Mukherjee
The loss of my mom really inspired me to go to a place with my performances that were emotionally honest, and I found that audiences really responded to that. People need to see heartbreak transformed into beauty.
Sasha Velour

Neil deGrasse Tyson
There certainly was a lot of potential in the air for doing a magazine which focused on the way business, in particular, was being transformed by the Internet.
James Daly
‘Flaubert’s Parrot’ is an amphibious book in which what appears to be a personal essay about Flaubertian writing is gradually, delicately transformed into an extremely sad novel in which the differences between character, author, and narrator are less clear than they appear at first glance.
Alvaro Enrigue
The U.S. public is depoliticised, poorly informed on foreign affairs… and strongly patriotic in the face of a struggle with another Hitler. Even though the public is normally averse to war, even with modest propaganda efforts… the public can be quickly transformed into enthusiastic supporters of war.
Edward S. Herman
The experiences of life must be transformed into true comprehension.
Samael Aun Weor
Some people feel ‘transformed’ from the first day they begin running; others feel that it’s just plain hard work. Most of us realize it is both. I know how great running can feel, but I also know it can feel not so great, even downright awful! It can be fun, but it takes work to have that fun.
Grete Waitz
Thus, while I thought myself employed only in forming a Nomenclature, and while I proposed to myself nothing more than to improve the chemical language, my work transformed itself by degrees, without my being able to prevent it, into a treatise upon the Elements of Chemistry.

Jon Favreau
That slow smile again. I love that smile! DId I think he was ugly just now? No, his face is transformed.
Jenny Downham
Falling in love with him was completely unexpected. When you only see someone as a friend, you don’t expect anything else. There was definitely a moment when something quite magical happened and we both agree that it transformed our relationship.
Helena Bonham Carter
An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought.

Susan Strasberg
Multinational corporations and a market economy have transformed human beings into instruments of making money. Human beings should be the end. And money should be the means to an end.
Satish Kumar
Many ideas have been transformed by adding one crucial adjective-women’s bank, women’s music, women’s studies, women’s caucus. That adjective did more than change a phrase. It implied a lot of new content: child care, flexible work hours, new standards of creditworthiness, new symbolism, new lyrics.
Gloria Steinem
A painter can turn pennies into gold, for all subjects are capable of being transformed into poems.
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres
Imagination is best fed by reality, an odd diet for something nonexistent there are few details of daily life and its broad range of emotional context that can’t be transformed into food for the imagination.
Patricia A. McKillip

I became a Conservative in the late 1980s because I could see that the Conservative party had transformed Britain’s economy and our standing in the world compared to Labour in the 1980s.
Andrew Lansley
There is no true joy in a life lived closed up in the little shell of the self. When you take one step to reach out to people, when you meet with others and share their thoughts and sufferings, infinite compassion and wisdom well up within your heart. Your life is transformed.
Daisaku Ikeda
For good or ill, communism transformed the globe, but how many of us realise the crucial role played by a Manchester public library – Chethams, the oldest library in the English-speaking world – in the honing of that ideology?
Michael Portillo
The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years.
George Matthew Adams
I’ve been transformed by stories, and I think that storytelling is definitely sacred. I take it very seriously because my life has been changed, whether it was a movie, a play, a piece of writing, poetry, a painting.
Karla Souza
If my father were still writing essays, every full-grown ‘girl’ would probably be transformed into a’woman’.
Anne Fadiman

Herbert Marcuse
I knew that alpaca wool, with its cashmere-soft weave, had been transformed into cuddly knick-knacks ranging from pillows to teddy bears. But through selective breeding over the past 6,000 years, alpacas have so diverged from their llama cousins as to become quite different animals.
David Roberts
There is no greater power in the Universe than the power of love. The feeling of love is the highest frequency you can emit. If you could wrqp every thought in love, if you could love everything and everyone, your life would be transformed.
Rhonda Byrne
Mozart resolved his emotions on a level that transformed them into moods uncontaminated by mortal anguish, enabling him to express the angelic anguish that is so peculiarly his own.

James Redfield
Kolkata is a very beautiful city and I have heard that it gets completely transformed during Durga Puja.
Sanjeeda Sheikh
The biggest ethical challenge AI is facing is jobs. You have to reskill your workforce not just to create a wealthier society but a fairer one. A lot of call centre jobs will go away, and a radiologist’s job will be transformed.
Andrew Ng
It would be nice if areas could be revitalised – like places in the U.S. such as Pittsburgh, for example, which have been transformed through shale. There you have shiny cars in a shiny city because of the development of shale in an old industrial heartland.
Jim Ratcliffe
Nature has poured forth all things for the common use of all men. And God has ordained that all things should be produced that there might be food in common for all, and that the earth should be in the common possession of all. Nature created common rights, but usurpation has transformed them into private rights.
Resistance is thought transformed into feeling. Change the thought that creates the resistance, and there is no more resistance.
Robert Conklin
Britain’s done a lot of changing in the past 50 years. The decline of manufacturing and heavy industry under Margaret Thatcher ripped the economic heart out of huge swathes of the country, and dramatically transformed class composition.
Ash Sarkar
Once you step on stage, the people are actually looking to be transformed. That’s why they showed up; that’s why they spent some money. And great performances do that.
Jason Moran
Remove advertising, disable a person or firm from proclaiming its wares and their merits, and the whole of society and of the economy is transformed. The enemies of advertising are the enemies of freedom.
David Ogilvy
‘Anna Karenina.’ I read it in college. I was so engrossed that I couldn’t stop reading it and neglected all my other studies. I would go to the library even on nice warm weekends and just lock myself up. I think that was the first time that I felt transformed by a book.
Jonathan Dee
Donald Trump has taken over the Republican Party. He’s transformed the Republican Party.
Mark Shields
In five years, you’re going to be blown away by the strength and diversity of Michigan’s transformed economy.

Catriona Gray
Simply as an exercise in efficient politics, Obama ’08 rewrote the textbook. His accomplishment was historic and one that transformed how race and politics intersect in our society. Obama is the leading edge of this change, but his success is merely the ripple in a pond that grows deeper every day.
Gwen Ifill
Any experience can be transformed into something of value. Everything depends on the way you look at things. You cannot have the success without the failures.
Vash Young
Refuse to disconnect from love and every relationship will be totally transformed; even the relationship with yourself.
An affection which is not inspired by the Lord will soon be transformed into lust. Samson is not alone in the history of man in failing in this regard. Delilah is still cutting the hair of man today!
Watchman Nee
The workplace revolution that transformed the lives of blue-collar workers in the 1970s and 1980s is finally reaching the offices and cubicles of the white-collar workers.
Tom Peters
I don’t think you can understand Trump’s relationship to his voters and how he gets away with what he gets away with, without understanding the pact between a lifestyle brand and its consumer base and how that really transformed the global economy in the 1990s.
Naomi Klein
There has already been the karmic work: that what life has transformed in me, this initiation brought on, of necessity, by trials.

Melissa Leo
It is right for us not to want our country transformed into a mere corridor, a giant railway station.
Marine Le Pen
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
Will Durant
The story itself, the true story, is the one that the audience members create in their minds, guided and shaped by my text, but then transformed, elucidated, expanded, edited, and clarified by their own experience, their own desires, their own hopes and fears.
Orson Scott Card
My yoga practice, I do it because when I get on my mat, I know I’m going to be transformed. I know that whatever stresses are in my life or whatever worries I have or whatever monkey mind is happening for me, when I get off the mat, I’m going to be transformed.
Michael Franti
And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.
Pico Iyer
I feel like I was transformed by the kindness of people who had every reason to show me cruelty and the transformative power of their decision to treat me like a human being, that was so huge, that anytime somebody wants me to talk about that I feel like I absolutely want to do that.
Megan Phelps-Roper
Nothing is staged. And nothing is already there. Everything is transformed through the camera.
