Dance Quotes

Life isn't how to survive the storm, it's about how to dance in the rain.

Taylor Swift

For twenty years programming languages have been steadily progressing toward their present condition of obesity; as a result, the study and invention of programming languages has lost much of its excitement. Instead, it is now the province of those who prefer to work with thick compendia of details rather than wrestle with new ideas. Discussions about programming languages often resemble medieval debates about the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin instead of exciting contests between fundamentally differing concepts. Many creative computer scientists have retreated from inventing languages to inventing tools for describing them. Unfortunately, they have been largely content to apply their elegant new tools to studying the warts and moles of existing languages.

John Warner Backus

Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise That I dance like I've got diamonds At the meeting of my thighs?

Maya Angelou

Warren G. Bennis

You were born together, and together you shall be for evermore, but let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Kahlil Gibran

The further off from England, the nearer is to France - / Then turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance.

Lewis Carroll

The honorablest part of talk is to give the occasion, and again to moderate and pass to somewhat else; for then a man leads the dance.

Francis Bacon

If God is the DJ, then Life is the dance floor; Love is the rhythm, and You are the music.

P!nk

And my goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance.

Michael Jackson

Water, like religion and ideology, has the power to move millions of people. Since the very birth of human civilization, people have moved to settle close to it. People move when there is too little of it. People move when there is too much of it. People journey down it. People write, sing and dance about it. People fight over it. And all people, everywhere and every day, need it

Mikhail Gorbachev

If people stand in a circle long enough, they'll eventually begin to dance.

George Denis Patrick Carlin

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but it's about how to dance in the rain.

Taylor Swift

Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music.

William Stafford

Discourse on virtue and they pass by in droves. Whistle and dance the shimmy, and you've got an audience.

Diogenes

We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life. This is the function of the American dance

Martha Graham

Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.

Annie Leibovitz

Injustice can be eliminated, but human conflicts and natural limitations cannot be removed. The conflicts of social life and the limitations of nature cannot be controlled or transcended. They can, however, be endured and survived. It is possible for there to be a dance with life, a creative response to its intrinsic limits and challenges ...

Sharon Welch

If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.

George Bernard Shaw

We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment

Alan Watts

Hard work is a prison sentence only if it does not have meaning. Once it does, it becomes the kind of thing that makes you grab your wife around the waist and dance a jig.

Malcolm Gladwell

Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to git attention we do, except walk?

Alice Walker

The religion they practise is called Witchcraft.
