A speech is poetry: cadence, rhythm, imagery, sweep! A speech reminds us that words, like children, have the power to make dance the dullest beanbag of a heart.
Learn then to dance, you that are princes born, And lawful lords of earthly creatures all; Imitate them, and thereof take no scorn, (For this new art to them is natural) And imitate the stars celestial. For when pale death your vital twist shall sever, Your better parts must dance with them forever.Sir John Davies
My men, like satyrs grazing on the lawns, Shall with their goat feet dance an antic hay.Christopher Marlowe
Coming and going by the dance, I seeThat what I am not is a part of me.Dancing is all that I can ever trust,The dance is all I am, the rest is dust.I will believe my bones and live by whatWill go on dancing when my bones are not.sydney carter
I should be able to get the alligators to dance to the tune of the pan pipe. (March 30, 1947) I should give all the works of Baudelaire for a female Olympic swimmer. (Letters to Milton Hindus) Experience is a dim lamp, which only lights the one who bears it.louis-ferdinand céline
Educational television should be absolutely forbidden. It can only lead to unreasonable expectations and eventual disappointment when your child discovers that the letters of the alphabet do not leap up out of books and dance around the room with royal-blue chickens.fran lebowitz
Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.william wordsworth
I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance .e. e. cummings
It must be fun to be you And play with love as you do To treat each new romance As merely one more dance Or just another book to glance through It must be fun to acquire Whatever heart you desire, And when you're bored with it To tear it in two, It must be fun to be you.Cole Porter
I am a strange compound of weakness and resolution! However, if I must suffer, I will endeavour to suffer in silence. There is certainly a great defect in my mind my wayward heart creates its own misery Why I am made thus I cannot tell; and, till I can form some idea of the whole of my existence, I must be content to weep and dance like a child long for a toy, and be tired of it as soon as I get it.mary wollstonecraft

...there is nothing in Bharata Natyam which can be purified afresh; it is divine as it is and innately so. The sringara we experience in Bharata Natyam is never carnal; never, never. For those who have yielded themselves to its discipline line with total dedication, dance, like music is the practice of the Presence. It cannot be merely the body’s rapture.
Earlier, parents used to make their children learn this dance as a respect towards it, but now, many come to learn it to make it their profession and harbour dreams of becoming stars.
Odissi dance has gained acceptance as a classical form while the Centre is expected to accord similar status to Odia soon. Odissi music too has been claiming such a tag since long.
True ease in writing comes from art, not chance, As those move easiest who have learn'd to dance.Alexander Pope
A C program is like a fast dance on a newly waxed dance floor by people carrying razors.
Dresses for breakfasts, and dinners, and balls. Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in; Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in, Dresses in which to do nothing at all; Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall; All of them different in color and shape. Silk, muslin, and lace, velvet, satin, and crape, Brocade and broadcloth, and other material, Quite as expensive and much more ethereal.william allen butler
The truest expression of people is in its dance and in its music. Bodies never lie.
He is terribly rare. He is like Bach , who in his time had a great concentration of ability, essence, knowledge, a spread of music. Astaire has that same concentration of genius; there is so much of the dance in him that it has been distilled.
dance, in general, has become more atavistic than artistic.
