"Everything will be alright" is not the same as "everything will stay the same."
In my humble opinion, he's absolutely right.
This makes life interesting and new, every single day, and, well... this makes me feel alive.
I want to be sure that everything will NOT stay the same. Otherwise I would feel lost and imprisoned.
And everything will be alright because almost anything will stay the same. What eigentlich matters is... what will stay the same.
The rest is just a plus. Or something not so important, after all.
Everything ok, then? I am not that sure.
One of my favourite Italian books is 'Il Gattopardo', by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. [Maybe do you know the movie by Luchino Visconti?]
There you can read a very characteristic sentence, that says a lot about Italian mentality: 'Bisogna che tutto cambi, perché tutto resti lo stesso'. That sounds a little bit like 'If we want that everything will stay the same, everything needs to change'.
Are both sentences maybe part of everybody's life, at the same time? Or only sometimes?
