Swami Vivekananda noticed that everything is impermanent, everything is changing. We (our body), the world outside us, the entire universe are constantly changing. In this website we wrote an article on Swami Vivekananda's quotes on impermanence. Now we are going to make a collection of Swami Vivekananda's quotes on change.
  • A changeable God would be no God.[Source]
  • All change is in the screen.[Source]
  • All objective pleasure in the long run must bring pain, because of the fact of change or death.[Source]
  • Any particle in this universe can change in relation to any other particle; but take the whole universe as one.[Source]
  • Change can only be in the limited.[Source]
  • Change is always in regard to something which does not change, or which changes relatively less.[Source]
  • Change is always subjective.[Source]
  • Change is inherent in every form.[Source]
  • Change is the nature of all objective things.[Source]
  • Change of the unchangeable would be a contradiction.[Source]
  • Every change is being forced upon us.[Source]
  • Everybody is changing.[Source]
  • Excepting the infinite spirit, everything else is changing. There is the whirl of change.[Source]
  • It is nature that is changing, not the soul of man. This never changes.[Source]
  • It is the free alone which never changes, and the unchangeable alone which is free; for change is produced by something exterior to a thing, or within itself, which is more powerful than the surroundings.[Source]
  • Not one is constant, but everything is changing.[Source]
  • Society is an organism which obeys the immutable law of progress; and change, judicious and cautious change, is necessary for the well being, and indeed the preservation of the social system.[Source]
  • The body and mind are continually changing, and are, in fact, only names of series of changeful phenomena, like rivers whose waters are in a constant state of flux, yet presenting the appearance of unbroken streams. Every particle in this body is continually changing; no one has the same body for many minutes together, and yet we think of it as the same body.[Source]
  • The idea of creation or change is inseparably connected with will. So long as we perceive this world in motion, we have to conceive will behind it.[Source]
  • The sky never changes: it is the cloud that is changing.[Source]
  • These births and deaths are changes in nature which we are mistaking for changes in us.[Source]
  • We never change, we never die, and we are never born.[Source]
  • What do we call the river? Every moment the water is changing, the shore is changing, every moment the environment is changing, what is the river then? It is the name of this series of changes.[Source]
