Gracefulness is not imposed from without but generated from within. Gracefulness is 'the immateriality which . . . passes into matter.' In this formulation, the soul , or what Bergson elsewhere calls the élan vital , the life force, shapes the matter that contains it. The soul is not immobilized by matter, as it is in comedy , but remains infinitely supple and perpetually in motion.
