Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Too many members of the U.N. benefit from the status quo and won't make decisions for purely altruistic reasons.

Everything is in a state of flux, including the status quo.
Major political parties have a role, but they are incapable of initiating fundamental change because they are fundamentally tied to the status quo. They are the status quo.
And I have a message for the liberals and the defenders of the status quo: we're just getting started.
I'm not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it.
Whoever has an original thing to say, it is sort of a threat to the status quo.
The status quo sucks.
The riskiest thing we can do is just maintain the status quo.
The status quo is simply unacceptable.
Hillary Clinton wants a new title, and I would, too, if I already was secretary of the status quo.
The status quo leads to self-destruction.
Speaking out and challenging the status quo is seldom cheered at the UN.
