10 QUOTES WITH «STATIC»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word static.
1
Mamata Banerjee
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.
2
Susanne Bier
For me, grief is a static thing, and my movies have an extremely dynamic sort of movement.
3
Samuel Butler
Fear is static that prevents me from hearing myself.
4
Richard E. Byrd
A static hero is a public liability. Progress grows out of motion.

Alexander Calder
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.
6
Marcel Duchamp
In the 'Nude Descending a Staircase,' I wanted to create a static image of movement: movement is an abstraction, a deduction articulated within the painting, without our knowing if a real person is or isn't descending an equally real staircase.
7
Anne Enright
In more static societies, like Ireland, you can tell where a person is from by their surname, or where their grandparents are from.
8
John Fowles
In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things. In physical terms, I move through them; yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me.
9
Murray Gell-Mann
But when researchers at Bell Labs discovered that static tends to come from particular places in the sky, the whole field of radio astronomy opened up.
