What a difference a few days makes!

This banner was seen a few days before the Chiefs owner, Clark Hunt, and General Manager, Scott Pioli, took action and fired head coach Todd Haley. It serves as a reminder that things and people can change in a very short time. Consider these gems about the nature of change from people of note:

Change before you have to. -Jack Welch

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. -Anatole France

Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have. -Margaret Mead

Always remember that the future comes one day at a time. -Dean Acheson

Christians are supposed not merely to endure change, nor even to profit by it, but to cause it. -Harry Emerson Fosdick

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. -Leo Tolstoy

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. -Maya Angelou

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. -C. S. Lewis

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. -Reinhold Niebuhr

  1. You've got some good quotes there, Bob. I know nothing about the KC Chiefs' troubles, (and more than I want to know about the Detroit Lions' troubles). but it looks like someone in KC isn't afraid to take a stand! That said, I wish folks would take a stand on far more important issues than pro football scores!
