Quantum gates rotate qbit around bloch sphere?

Or quantum gates rotate bloch sphere around qbit?

"The simplest quantum gates are the Paulis: X, Y and Z. Their action is to perform a half rotation of the Bloch sphere around the x, y and z axes."

What does it means?


Bloch sphere represent states of a qubit. Rotating Bloch sphere means rotating (states of) qubit.
