Status Quo vs. Change

"...two important aspects of inorganic chemistry (in fact, of chemistry in general) are structure and reactivity.  Someone has said that all of physical science consists of this duality.  In physics we could speak of statics and dynamics, and by analogy in everyday life, the status quo and change."
