Looking for quote on static vs dynamic typing

A while ago there was one of those static-vs-dynamic debates (in the hackers
and painters thread, I think), and somewhere (I'm sure) someone mentioned a
quote along the lines of:

Early on in a project, as code is rapidly evolving, you want static typing
to help you as much as possible. When the code has matured (it's well tested
and not changing much), you want more dynamic typing so that the design can
be more flexible.

Can anyone remember who said this?
