Do not resist change

Is someone afraid of change? Well, what can ever come to be without change? Or what is dearer or closer to the nature of the Whole than change? Can you yourself take your bath, if the wood that heats it is not changed…Can any of the benefits of life be achieved without change? Do you not see then that for you to be changed is equal, and equally necessary to the nature of the Whole?
– Marcus Aurelius,  Meditations 7.18
Do not oppose change. It’s a fool’s errand. Everything changes always and all the time.
Nothing can be achieved without change.

“Fate leads the willing and drags along the reluctant”

– Seneca
