The world is a book and if you do not travel you read only one page.

Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is no mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself.
Great dancers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.
[Dancing is] A perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire.
Verily, great grace may go with a little gift; and precious are all things that come from a friend.
A faithful friend is the medicine of life.
A true friend is one soul in two bodies.
It may be possible to do without dancing entirely. Instances have been known of young people passing many, many months successively without being at any ball of any description, and no material injury accrue either to body or mind; but when a beginning is made -- when the felicities of rapid motion have once been, though slightly, felt -- it must be a very heavy set that does not ask for more.
America is like an unfaithful love who promises us more than we got.
America is a land where men govern, but women rule.
Of all the nations in the world, the United States was built in nobody's image. It was the land of the unexpected, of unbounded hope, of ideals, of quest for an unknown perfection. It is all the more unfitting that we should offer ourselves in images. And all the more fitting that the images which we make wittingly or unwittingly to sell America to the world should come back to haunt and curse us.
America is the country where you can buy a lifetime supply of aspirin For one dollar and use it up in two weeks.
We must stop talking about the American dream and start listening to the dreams of the Americans.
Don't make excuses! Create solutions!
The way you feel about people, places, things, and ideas in life will always determine how you interact and involve yourself with them. Your attitude governs your entire life.
When a sinister person means to be your enemy, they always start by trying to become your friend.
Let your enemies be disarmed by the gentleness of your manner, but at the same time let them feel, the steadiness of your resentment.
Love is a great beautifier.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
There is love of course. And then there's life, its enemy.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
Friend is a book in one word.
Art is only a means to life, to the life more abundant. It is not in itself the life more abundant. It merely points the way, something which is overlooked not only by the public, but very often by the artist himself. In becoming an end it defeats itself.
The man who has ceased to fear has ceased to care.
