Growth and Movement

I was perusing Inside Out's Inspiration page today and came across the following quote:

Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on being always in motion just a little bit, one way or another.

What do you think?  Can you sit perfectly still, with no motion, and still grow?  It's an interesting thought.  I've seen time-lapse photography of a plant growing from a seed... once it begins to grow, it seems to always be in motion, and yet it is so slow, we don't perceive the movement with our eyes.  But it's there...

Not just growth as in growing "up" or aging... but how about just growing in our own personalities our own minds?  If we never moved out of our house, we would never experience some of the great adventures that help us to grow... whether that be love, friendship, trusting, heartbreak, hurt.  All of that helps us to grow into our own personalities, evolving and changing to become the best we can be...
