Still vs. Sparkling

“Myrna leaded back in her chair and took a long breath.

‘Life is change. If you aren’t growing and evolving you’re standing still, and the rest of the world is surging ahead. Most of these people are very immature. They lead ‘still’ live, waiting.’

‘Waiting for what?’

‘Waiting for someone to save them. Expecting someone to save them or at least protect them from the big, bad world. The thing is no one can save them because the problem is theirs and so is the solution. Only they can get out of it.’ ”

-from Still Life by Louise Penny, p 181
