Static Quotations

Change is a continuous process. You cannot assess it with the static yardstick of a limited time frame. When a seed is sown into the ground, you cannot immediately see the plant. You have to be patient. With time, it grows into a large tree. And then the flowers bloom, and only then can the fruits be plucked.
Mamata Banerjee

Fear is static that prevents me from hearing myself.
Samuel Butler

Why must art be static? You look at an abstraction, sculptured or painted, an entirely exciting arrangement of planes, spheres, nuclei, entirely without meaning. It would be perfect, but it is always still. The next step in sculpture is motion.
Alexander Calder

Once you do away with the idea of people as fixed, static entities, then you see that people can change, and there is hope.
bell hooks

John Portman
