J.K. Rowling
“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”
J.K. Rowling, Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination

Joss Whedon
“The thing about changing the world... Once you do it, the world's all different.”
Joss Whedon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Long Way Home


I was born the day
I thought:
What is?
What was?
What if?

I was transformed the day
My ego shattered,
And all the superficial, material
Things that mattered
To me before,
Suddenly ceased
To matter.

I really came into being
The day I no longer cared about
What the world thought of me,
Only on my thoughts for
Changing the world.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“To really change the world, we have to help people change the way they see things. Global betterment is a mental process, not one that requires huge sums of money or a high level of authority. Change has to be psychological. So if you want to see real change, stay persistent in educating humanity on how similar we all are than different. Don't only strive to be the change you want to see in the world, but also help all those around you see the world through commonalities of the heart so that they would want to change with you. This is how humanity will evolve to become better. This is how you can change the world. The language of the heart is mankind's main common language.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The little bit you and me might change the world," Malloy smiled, "it wouldnt show up until a hundred years after we were dead. We'd never see it."

It's about Supporting someone and just telling somebody that you care about them. You can't save the world if you can't save your self. You can't save the world if you can't save your neighbour.”
Angie karan

Joyce Rachelle
“When we're struck with cruelty, we can either inflict the same on others like it's a rite of passage, or decide that here is where it stops.”
Joyce Rachelle

Ana Claudia Antunes
“The less you move on the ground
the more the world moves around.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Tao of Physical and Spiritual

“When the minds of men slip from realities to fantasies without thinking of the future consequences, then we must ponder. When the hearts of men are entangled with what though might seem great but yet, specious ambitions without pondering over the resulting footprints, then we ought to take precautions. When the hands of men unwittingly and for the sake of self-gratification find the right weapons and dexterity for the wrong purpose, then massacre and cruelties leave indelible footprints of sorrow and bitterness in the hearts of men. We shall always look back to the footprints of yesterday to say had we know if we don’t take a critical look at today’s footsteps. There is always an alternative that is better than good”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Sometimes miracles happen in this world simply because good people take action and decide to do something, and never give up.”
Eileen Anglin

C. JoyBell C.
“In order to change the world, you must first change yourself. In order to have the right to see what is wrong with the world, you must first earn that right through seeing what is wrong with yourself. We do not become influencers, leaders and teachers, through pulling on our better attributes and applying those better attributes to a broken world like a healing balm; rather, we become influencers, leaders and teachers in this world, by performing within ourselves the purging that we wish to see take place in others.”
C. JoyBell C.

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“You may possibly become rich by just caring about yourself and what you want to gain from life but you cannot possibly enrich the lives of everyone you meet that way. The pathway to enlightenment and transformation and liberation is the heart not the mind.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“We spend so much time trying to change others – in part – because we do not deeply believe in and embrace ourselves as we already are. And so more often than not we do not learn to trust and utilize our gifts and power whole-heartedly enough to pursue and fulfill our own passions, purpose and possibilities.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“I used to give too much importance to reason until I discovered the world was shaped not by reason but by emotion”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

“Unhappy: People look around and think, why are there so many people that are unhappy? We have progressed so far, yet people are still unhappy. Why isn’t this world the wonderful place it could be? Changing the world doesn’t change us.

It does not matter how much we progress materially; it will not change anything. Only learning and seeing the truth will change us, and thus change everything.

The truth transforms a mortal man into an immortal spiritual being.
It does this because the truth just shows you what you truly are, and that changes everything. The truth does the same thing for the way we see the world and for the same reason. It shows you life clearly; it shows you true life for the first time.”
Michael Smith, The Present

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“The world will not know peace until we learn to understand each other's emotions”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

Ana Claudia Antunes
“Inequality and poverty, unhealth and no wealth are hand in hand.
And if we are all born equal that should be true in all lands.
We cannot divide the world between poor and rich countries.
It's like saying the ones are good, the others are junkies.
That can only increase more prejudice, miseries and sorrow.
Turning the wheel today it will lead to a better tomorrow.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Mysterious Murder of Marilyn Monroe

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Words are the most powerful forces in the Universe.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Pearls of Wisdom: Great mind

“Life is a journey of faces. Each face sees a new group of people changing the face of life and living!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Dreams of changing the world could only be realized by properly investing time into learning.”
Sunday Adelaja, How To Become Great Through Time Conversion: Are you wasting time, spending time or investing time?

“I'm gonna achieve my dreams in Fantasy Writing.”
Daniel L. Lewis

“You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world -
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars -
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“If we want the world to change, it has to start inside the human soul.”
Michael Meade

“I would really be doing something right, perhaps even important, if I was bringing even a little more compassion into the world through Big Bird.”
Caroll Spinney, The Wisdom of Big Bird (and the Dark Genius of Oscar the Grouch): Lessons from a Life in Feathers

Gary North
“I have adopted what I call
a "fat book" strategy. A movement that seeks to change the
world cannot make its claims believable with only short books.
The world is much too large and much too complex to be
capable of being restructured in terms of large-print, thin paperback
books - the only kind of books that most Christians
read these days. The best that any movement can expect to
achieve if it publishes only short books is to persuade readers
that the world cannot be changed.”
Gary North, Leviticus: An Economic Commentary
