'Welcoming scope changes' in Agile based projects

As per Agile Principle #2, changes are welcome late in the development.

How late in the development can we welcome these changes? How does this impact the committed scope, schedule, cost & quality. How do we manage scope when requirements are refined continuously? How do we manage the scope when epics are open-ended ?

Agile Principle #5 mentions about building projects around motivated individuals & Agile Principle #8 mentions about sustainable development.

How do we keep up the team's morale and deliver a top notch software? How do we ensure that the changes do not impact their work-life balance. The key is to ensure that the changes are introduced at an appropriate time within the life cycle.

So, let's discuss the circumstances where changes are welcome.
