Suppose I create a static website (just contains some information to read), and assume 1000 visits daily. The website does not contain any advertisements.
Can it be a source of (even small) income?

In order for any activity to generate income, you need to be able to point to where the money is coming from.
Websites owners generally generate income three ways:
If you aren’t doing one of these things, your site won’t generate any income. Websites don’t create money.
The money that you pay for internet access does not go to the content creators/website owners. You are paying for internet access, not content. It is like paying for transportation to a store. You might pay a train fare to get yourself to a store, but once you are at the store you must pay again to actually receive something from the store. The store owner doesn’t get any of the money you paid on the train.
As far I know, there are three ways to earn money from the website you are talking about (static, content based):
If you want to avoid advertisements on your web site, you still have two other ways to earn money.
Second way (paid/license) does not look most suitable to you as you are asking this question here. The better way is the third one. If visitors (if any) like your contents, you may ask (request) for donation.
