The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Did Socrates say this ?

  • Socrates (or Aristotle.. or Kant or Hegel or Aquinas or ... etc) would never write or say a sentence that begins with "The secret of change is"... -regardless of what follows. Perhaps, at most, when drunk. – leonbloy Jan 8 '14 at 3:24

No, he didn't. At least not the Socrates of ancient Greece. According to Wikiquote:

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. This a actually a quote from a character named Socrates in Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book that Changes Lives, by Dan Millman.
