ADAPTATION
[ Also see Accommodate Agreement Complacency Conformity Custom Docility Flexible Harmony Reconciliation ]

One learns to itch where one can scratch.
      - Ernest Bramah

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
      - attributed to Charles Galton Darwin

We talk of our mastery of nature, which sounds very grand; but the fact is we respectfully adapt ourselves, first, to her ways.
      - Clarence Day

To wade in marshes and sea margins is the destiny of certain bird, and they are so accurately made for this that they are imprisoned in those places. Each animal out of its habitat would starve. To the physician, each man, each woman, is an amplification of one organ. A soldier, a locksmith, a bank-clerk, and a dancer could not exchange functions. And thus we are victims of adaptation.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

We must make the best of those ills which cannot be avoided.
      - Alexander Hamilton

We must cut our coat according to our cloth, and adapt ourselves to changing circumstances.
      - William Ralph Inge

Make the most of the best and the least of the worst.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson

Things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out.
      - John Wooden
