What does "the more things change" mean?

Answer

The meaning of the expression, 'The more things change, the more things stay the same,' is basically that some things are always constant. Though external circumstances may seem wildly different, some things just do not change. This phrase is often used when the things that have obviously changed might suggest that the constant has also, but it has not.
