Change is the only constant in life. What we are discussing in the quotes below isn’t change, but transformation. A transformation is a thorough and dramatic change. It is more than the everyday subtle forces of the universe working on us, but a noticeable, large shift.

Now that we have gotten into deep thinking mode, please enjoy the top ten “Transformation quotes” as curated by zinzoecreative.com.
