Top 55 best quotes about change and growth you’ll ever read

Out of all the quotes about change and growth, this has always been my favourite one; “Change is a part of life, where there is a change, there will be a growth.”  Couldn’t agree more.

For me, these words still play the inevitable part of my life. When I am feeling sad or depressed, I remind myself these words as I know things won’t be same for long, a good change will happen soon.

And, in case of joyous time, I remind myself these words only, as good time won’t last long too, so just grab as much happiness as I can.

Every second of our life, things are evolving and changing. At times it’s impossible to notice these changes, but, they are happening, certainly. And, the one thing that runs proportionally with change is the growth.

Every change brings some growth. Be it good change or bad change, growth will follow. Many of us are growing wiser with these changes. One the other hand, many of us are walking on the opposite lane.

Where there is a change, there will be growth. Don’t you agree?
