We recognize the need to adapt to a changing competitive environment.
Some years ago, writing about stage adaptations of fiction, I noted:
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is Nature's inexorable imperative.
Adapt yourself to the things among which your lot has been cast and love sincerely the fellow creatures with whom destiny has ordained that you shall live.
All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.
There is no salvation in becoming adapted to a world which is crazy.
Adaptability is not imitation. It means power of resistance and assimilation.
Wise people are foolish if they cannot adapt to foolish people.
There is no order in the world around us, we must adapt ourselves to the requirements of chaos instead.
Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.
