Dance quotes by Daphne Rose Kingma
#1. Life itself is a gift.
It's a compliment just being born:
to feel, breathe, think, play, dance, sing, work, make love, for this particular lifetime.
Today, let's give thanks for life.
For life itself. For simply being born! #Quote by Daphne Rose Kingma
Dance quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#2. I saw only a flash of green and gold before the warmth of Tamlin's body slammed into me and our lips met.
I couldn't kiss him deeply enough, couldn't hold him tightly enough, couldn't touch enough of him. Words weren't necessary.
I tore at his shirt, needing to feel the skin beneath one last time, and I had to stifle the moan that rose up in me as he grasped my breast. I didn't want him to be gentle - because what I felt for him wasn't at all like that. What I felt was wild and hard and burning, and so he was with me.
He tore his lips from mine and bit my neck - bit it as he had on Fire Night. I had to grind my teeth to keep myself from moaning and giving us away. This might be the last time I touched him, the last time we could be together. I wouldn't waste it.
My fingers grappled with his belt buckle, and his mouth found mine again. Our tongues danced - not a waltz or a minuet, but a war dance, a death dance of bone drums and screaming fiddles.
I wanted him - here.
I hooked a leg around his middle, needing to be closer, and he ground his hips harder against me, crushing me into the icy wall. I pried the belt buckle loose, whipping the leather free, and Tamlin growled his desire in my ear - a low, probing sort of sound that made me see red and white and lightning. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Dance quotes by Charles Dance
#3. I like approbation. Any actor who tells you they don't is lying. #Quote by Charles Dance
Dance quotes by Charles Dance
#4. We get a successful television series or something, and next season they give you less time and less money, which is something I've never really understood. That doesn't happen with Game of Thrones. #Quote by Charles Dance
Dance quotes by Michael Morpurgo
#5. That's what sailing is, a dance, and your partner is the sea. And with the sea you never take liberties. You ask her, you don't tell her. You have to remember always that she's the leader, not you. You and your boat are dancing to her tune. #Quote by Michael Morpurgo
Dance quotes by Dylan Saccoccio
#6. Foreword To you, that you may awaken to understand that the whole universe is a dance of energy, and that energy is God, and that energy is you. You are something that the whole universe is doing, that God is doing, just as a wave is something that the whole ocean is doing. The real you, the energy, the soul, is not a puppet that life pushes around. The real you is the whole universe. The real you is God, destined to follow no one, destined to ignite the ether, experience life from an individual perspective, and take part in the creation. So this is for you, my fellow creators, my fellow gods, and my fellow selves, that coincidence may never disguise itself with the mask of fate and torment you, that every moment be meaningful, and that no experience be lost #Quote by Dylan Saccoccio
Dance quotes by Ibrahim Farah
#7. Dance is so important in the world. It needs no language. Our bodies speak a language of its own. #Quote by Ibrahim Farah
Dance quotes by Steven Van Zandt
#8. The energy that comes when you compel people to dance stays with you your whole career - whether you are playing to 100,000 people at Glastonbury or 1,000 kids in a club. #Quote by Steven Van Zandt
Dance quotes by Rajneesh
#9. Those who miss meditation miss the whole dance of life. #Quote by Rajneesh
Dance quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#10. Dance, Feyre," he whispered. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Dance quotes by Deborah Wells
#11. The dark man is ubiquitous. People from all times and in all places have recorded their experiences of him in stories, poems, paintings, songs, stone, dance, crafts and prayers. Saint or sinner, scientist or theologian, agnostic or true believer, it makes little difference as the dark man has walked beside us since the very beginning and he will stay with us until the end. He is so intrinsic to the human experience that everyone has at least one dark man story to tell... #Quote by Deborah Wells
Dance quotes by George S. Patton Jr.
#12. Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one
thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the
body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up.
It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is
never tired if the mind is not tired. When you were younger
the mind could make you dance all night, and the body was
never tired ... You've always got to make the mind take over
and keep going. #Quote by George S. Patton Jr.
Dance quotes by Kimberly Derting
#13. What was that all about?" Jay asked in loud whisper.
She still felt like her head was reeling. She had no idea what she was going to tell to Grady when school was out. "I think Grady just asked me to Homecoming," she announced to Jay.
He looked at her suspiciously. "The game?"
Violet cocked her head to the side and gave him a look that told him to be serious.
"No, I'm pretty sure he meant the dance," Violet clarified, exasperated by the obtuse question. #Quote by Kimberly Derting
Dance quotes by Judith Lynne Hanna
#14. Through dance, people meet demons, ward off death, shake off sin and evil, come to terms with life crises, mediate paradoxes, resolve conflict, revitalize the past to re-create the present, enhance their self-concept and body image, attract attention, assert themselves, confront the strong, and persuade others to change their ways. #Quote by Judith Lynne Hanna
Dance quotes by Willa Cather
#15. But she's the kind that won't be downed easily. She'll work all day and go to a Bohemian wedding and dance all night, and drive the hay wagon for a cross man next morning. #Quote by Willa Cather
Dance quotes by Rajneesh
#16. An intelligent man, a man who has a little meditative consciousness, can make his life a beautiful piece of art, can make it so full of love and full of music and full of poetry and full of dance that there are no limitations for it. Life is not hard. It is man's stupidity that makes it hard. #Quote by Rajneesh
Dance quotes by Stella Soleil
#17. I wanted to make a record with a twist. I wanted to prove that you could make a record that concentrated on song craft but that was still fun, something you could listen to and love and even dance to, but not hate yourself in the morning. I think I did that. Most of my lyrics come from my own personal journals that I have kept over the years. #Quote by Stella Soleil
Dance quotes by Torron-Lee Dewar
#18. While you're worrying about becoming famous, there is someone out there putting in work and not wasting a second of their time. Which person will you be? #Quote by Torron-Lee Dewar
Dance quotes by Adib Khorram
#19. But even as I laughed, I thought about how Mamou and Mrs. Rezaei and Sohrab had danced this dance together before. How they had celebrated Nowruz together before. How Mamou had kissed Sohrab on both cheeks and invited him inside for tea before. More times than anyone could count. My chest imploded. Just a little bit. I hated how Sohrab had a larger share of my grandmother's life than I did. #Quote by Adib Khorram
Dance quotes by Debasish Mridha
#20. Open your heart! Dance with joy and love. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Dance quotes by Robert Jordan
#21. Women were glad when he came into their lives. It was not boasting. Women smiled for him; even when he left them, they smiled as if they would welcome him back. That was all he ever really wanted from women; a smile, a dance, a kiss, and to be remembered foundly. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Dance quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#22. Dancing daily is a good physical activity. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Dance quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#23. You think I'm playing at some game? You think iron will keep you safe? Hear my words, manling. Do not mistake me for my mask. You see light dappling on the water and forget the deep, cold dark beneath. Listen. You cannot hurt me. You cannot run or hide. In this I will not be defied.

I swear by all the salt in me: if you run counter to my desire, the remainder of your brief mortal span will be an orchestra of misery.

I swear by stone and oak and elm: I'll make a game of you. I'll follow you unseen and smother any spark of joy you find. You'll never know a woman's touch, a breath of rest, a moment's peace of mind.

And I swear by the night sky and the ever-moving moon: if you lead my master to despair, I will slit you open and splash around like a child in a muddy puddle. I'll string a fiddle with your guts and make you play it while I dance. You are an educated man. You know there are no such things as demons. There is only my kind. You are not wise enough to fear me as I should be feared. You do not know the first note of the music that moves me. -Bast #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Dance quotes by Voltaire
#24. Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world. #Quote by Voltaire
Dance quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#25. Literature, although it stands apart by reason of the great destiny and general use of its medium in the affairs of men, is yet an art like other arts. Of these we may distinguish two great classes: those arts, like sculpture, painting, acting, which are representative, or as used to be said very clumsily, imitative; and those, like architecture, music, and the dance, which are self-sufficient, and merely presentative. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Dance quotes by Namie Amuro
#26. From my debut until now, I've always wanted to sing and dance. #Quote by Namie Amuro
Dance quotes by Q. Gibson
#27. Remind your bones that that dance inside something worthy #Quote by Q. Gibson
Dance quotes by Debasish Mridha
#28. Life is the most beautiful dance on the most beautiful stage we call Earth. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Dance quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#29. Yes, it takes two to dance. But somebody has to lead. #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Dance quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#30. What's Baghra's power, anyway?" I asked, the thought occurring to me for the first time. She was an amplifier like the Darkling, but he had his own power, too. "I'm not sure," he said. "I think she was a Tidemaker. No one around here is old enough to remember." He looked down at me. The cold air had put a flush in his cheeks, and the lamplight shone in his gray eyes. "Alina, if I tell you that I still believe we can find the stag, would you think I'm mad?" "Why would you care what I think?" He looked genuinely baffled. "I don't know," he said. "But I do." And then he kissed me. It happened so suddenly that I barely had time to react. One moment, I was staring into his slate-colored eyes, and the next, his lips were pressed to mine. I felt that familiar sense of surety melt through me as my body sang with sudden heat and my heart jumped into a skittery dance. Then, just as suddenly, he stepped back. He looked as surprised as I felt. "I #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Dance quotes by Jean Dubuffet
#31. I want my street to be crazy, I want my avenues, shops and buildings, to enter into a crazy dance, and this is why I deform and distort their outlines and colours. However I always come up against the same difficulty, that if all the elements were one by one deformed and distorted excessively, if in the end nothing remained of their real outlines, I would have totally effaced the location that I intended to suggest, that I wished to transform. #Quote by Jean Dubuffet
Dance quotes by Luther Vandross
#32. How I'd love, love, love, to dance with my Father again ... #Quote by Luther Vandross
Dance quotes by Chris Tucker
#33. I've actually tried to give Brett Ratner dance lessons, but he thinks he already knows how to. #Quote by Chris Tucker
Dance quotes by Maisie Williams
#34. Doing the sword fighting is like picking up a dance routine ... I think dancing really helps with the picking up of it. #Quote by Maisie Williams
Dance quotes by George Carlin
#35. There will be a rain dance Friday night, weather permitting! #Quote by George Carlin
Dance quotes by Charles Dance
#36. Because [writers] Dan Weiss and David Benioff have done such a great job in adapting them, that's what we work with. It serves no purpose to anybody for actors to come onto a set with a well-thumbed copy of the source material and start querying why this or that line has been left out of the script. It's probably been left out for a good reason. #Quote by Charles Dance
Dance quotes by Lindy Zart
#37. I want to live as much as I can,and if people are around when I happen to get spontaneous, I can't exactly tell them to go away. I can't be like, clear out the grocery store! I feel the impulse to dance. #Quote by Lindy Zart
Dance quotes by Allison Williams
#38. One of my favorite things to do is to play music really loud and dance my butt off in the morning. I'll do it alone in my apartment. You can't have a bad day after that. #Quote by Allison Williams
Dance quotes by Rudolf Nureyev
#39. Technique is what you fall back on when you run out of inspiration. #Quote by Rudolf Nureyev
Dance quotes by Sophie Kinsella
#40. When I was your age, if a boy behaved badly, one simply scored his name out from one's dance card.
(Sadie Lancaster - to Lara Lington) #Quote by Sophie Kinsella
Dance quotes by Liza Minnelli
#41. He [Gene Kelly] once told me dancing was a man's game, as much of a sport as baseball itself. And he made us believe that. He changed our minds and suddenly, all of America wanted to dance just like Gene Kelly. #Quote by Liza Minnelli
Dance quotes by Robert Jordan
#42. Dance well with a woman, and she's halfway yours. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Dance quotes by Yoko Ono
#43. I think if you give in and accept society's stereotypes, then you start thinking, 'I cannot dance till late at night because I'm 70.' #Quote by Yoko Ono
Dance quotes by Christopher Morley
#44. The little Plumpuppets are fairies of beds; They have nothing to do but watch sleepyheads; They turn down the sheets and they tuck you in tight, And dance on your pillow to wish you good night! #Quote by Christopher Morley
Dance quotes by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
#45. People love it when you criticise some things which they do not believe in, practices which are contrary to what they practice or contrary views. They call you objective and truthful

But immediately you start disagreeing with their views, criticising their beliefs, expressing contrary views against what they support, they call you foul names, say you are not a child of God, ask who you are to judge.

Listen and listen good, I love writing and I write based on inspiration and experience.

I don't just write, I write to capture the minds of my readers and to spark reaction. I welcome contrary views, I love you opposing my stance cos in the process I learn some things from you.

Don't get mad at me for expressing myself via writing. I love putting things down. Learn to tolerate my views and counter me when you don't agree.

Stop holding grudges and developing unnecessary hatred. Life is too short to be closed minded and inclined. Life is too short for me to idolize anybody.

I can't always be dancing to your tunes, you also have to dance to mine. #Quote by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
Dance quotes by Vera-Ellen
#46. I was called a bookish child. Mother sent me to a ballet teacher in Cincinnati when I was nine years old. I guess I was an awkward child and the family wanted me to be graceful. When I found out I liked to dance and people seemed to like to watch me, I was determined to go places. #Quote by Vera-Ellen
Dance quotes by Mia Michaels
#47. Dancing is a feeling expressed from the inside out. #Quote by Mia Michaels
Dance quotes by Billy Marshall Stoneking
#48. Character is not purchased with a dance in the street. It's expensive and hard to come by. Though it is the heir of disappointment, betrayal and frustration, it is not the inheritance that matters but what you do with it. No one ever developed their character by arranging their experiences in such a way that only 'good' things are allowed to happen. #Quote by Billy Marshall Stoneking
Dance quotes by Steve Paxton
#49. Just the pleasure of moving and the pleasure of using your body is, I think, maybe the main point. And the pleasure of dancing with somebody in an unplanned and spontaneous way, when you're free to invent and they're free to invent and you're neither one hampering the other - that's a very pleasant social form. #Quote by Steve Paxton
Dance quotes by Rumi
#50. Don't ask me about prayer rocks
Anyplace I put my head is a prayer rock.
Don't talk of direction
All six directions face Him.
Gardens, flames, nightingale,
whirling dance, and brotherhood
Throw all these away
and throw yourself into His love. #Quote by Rumi
Dance quotes by A.  Kirk
#51. Blake: Logan's a great dancer. And we all know a guy who can dance, is good in –
Logan: *Puts hands over ears* La, la, la, la, la!
Jayden: I don't know why you're embarrassed. Sexual attraction is a key component to –
Tristan: Ugh! Please stop talking. #Quote by A. Kirk
Dance quotes by Ninette De Valois
#52. Classical ballet will never die. #Quote by Ninette De Valois
Dance quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#53. So it would begin. The obligatory questions, the perfunctory answers. Both pretending. Unenthusiastic partners, the two of them, in this tired old dance. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Dance quotes by Josie Silver
#54. He adjusts our hands, his fingers warm around mine.

And then he looks down at me, and his eyes say all the things he cannot. His gaze holds mine as we dance slowly, and I silently tell him that I'll always carry him in my heart, and he silently tells me that in another place, another time, we'd have been pretty damn close to perfect.

'For what it's worth' - his hand slips into my hair and he strokes his thumb along my jaw - 'and because we're finally being honest with each other, you're just about my favourite person in the world, and it was the single most spectacular kiss of my whole life. #Quote by Josie Silver
Dance quotes by Twyla Tharp
#55. I'm not one who divides music, dance or art into various categories. Either something works, or it doesn't. #Quote by Twyla Tharp
Dance quotes by Maddie Ziegler
#56. I dance. I don't really do anything else. #Quote by Maddie Ziegler
Dance quotes by George Balanchine
#57. Music must be seen, and dance must be heard #Quote by George Balanchine
Dance quotes by Charles Dance
#58. People think I have the benefit of a public school education. I have this suave and debonair label, but really, I'm as common as muck. #Quote by Charles Dance
Dance quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#59. There's a swell book that's out of print now. Maybe Seven Stories will bring it out again. It's called The Writer and Psychoanalysis by a man who's now dead named Edmund Bergler. He claimed he had treated more writers than anyone else in his field, and being that he practiced in New York, he probably did. Bergler said that writers were fortunate in that they were able to treat their neuroses every day by writing. He also said that as soon as a writer was blocked, this was catastrophic because the writer would start to go to pieces. And so I said in a piece in Harper's, or a letter I wrote to Harper's, about "the death of the novel": People will continue to write novels, or maybe short stories, because they discover that they are treating their own neuroses. And I have said about the practice of the arts that practicing any art - be it painting, music, dance, literature, or whatever - is not a way to make money or become famous. It's a way to make your soul grow. So you should do it anyway. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Dance quotes by Isadora Duncan
#60. Dance is the movement of the universe concentrated in an individual. #Quote by Isadora Duncan
Dance quotes by Rob Cantrell
#61. I will dance and frolic with my Fronkeys from here to eternity. #Quote by Rob Cantrell
Dance quotes by Wendy Owens
#62. Gabe realized he was standing there alone, with a goofy smile on his face. Limping inside, he closed the door behind him, her words still lingering in his mind. Gabe wanted more than anything to be able to choose happiness. He wanted a rain storm to make him smile. He desired that the simple task of cooking would make him dance. To Gabe, however, it didn't seem as simple as just making a choice. He hoped her joy was contagious, because he was in uncharted territories. #Quote by Wendy Owens
Dance quotes by Tiger Lewis
#63. Juliet and Romeo

Awake the scene, a twilight chamber'd dream,
Two angels both alike in dignity:
One imaged misadventure on the screen;
The second struck by moonlight's alchemy.
A pair of star-crossed lovers spends their night;
He in deed dreams such a sight as she,
Swing crystal scales to crispest fair delight.
In his eyes her merry fragrant dance: she
Civil thoughts and civil music meet; on
Fair Lansdowne Street where love lays its scene,
Romeo and Juliet did greet; within
Their airy eyes on hopes and thoughts unseen.
The curtain lifts on this sweet poem with woe,
For love to find Juliet and her Romeo. #Quote by Tiger Lewis
Dance quotes by Charles Dance
#64. I spent a lot of time [between takes] apologising to Peter Dinklage [Dance's on-screen son, Tyrion Lannister] because I treat him appallingly. #Quote by Charles Dance
Dance quotes by Erling Kagge
#65. When you've invested a lot of time in being accessible and keeping up with what's happening, it's easy to conclude that it all has a certain value, even if what you have done might not be important. This is called rationalization. The New York Review of Books labeled the battle between producers of apps "the new opium wars," and the paper claims that "marketers have adopted addiction as an explicit commercial strategy." The only difference is that the pushers aren't peddling a product that can be smoked in a pipe, but rather is ingested via sugar-coated apps.

In a way, silence is the opposition to all of this. It's about getting inside what you are doing. Experiencing rather than overthinking. Allowing each moment to be big enough. Not living through other people and other things. Shutting out the world and fashioning your own silence whenever you run, cook food, have sex, study, chat, work, think of a new idea, read or dance. #Quote by Erling Kagge
Dance quotes by Ann Aguirre
#66. First slow dance, you get out there and ask her. Promise?"
Max knocked back his shot. "Fine, I can probably manage that."
I chugged my water as another good song came on. So I grabbed his hand. "Don't be self-conscious. I'm going to teach you some move. Nothing fancy."
He watched me for a few seconds than shook his head. "My pelvis only moves that way under one circumstance. This isn't it. #Quote by Ann Aguirre
Dance quotes by T.B. LaBerge
#67. One day we will dance with no restraint, and we will love with no fear. For when the King returns, it will be as though our pain was but a dream, and our hope is the only reality we know. #Quote by T.B. LaBerge
Dance quotes by J.K. Rowling
#68. Wow," he added, blinking rather rapidly as Hermione came hurrying toward them. "You look great!"
"Always the tone of surprise," said Hermione, though she smiled. She was wearing a floaty, lilac-colored dress with matching high heels; her hair was sleek and shiny. "Your Great-Aunt Muriel doesn't agree, I just met her upstairs while she was giving Fleur the tiara. She said, 'Oh dear, is this the Muggle-born?' and then, 'Bad posture and skinny ankles.'"
"Don't take it personally, she's rude to everyone," said Ron.
"Talking about Muriel?" inquired George, reemerging from the marquee with Fred. "Yeah, she's just told me my ears are lopsided. Old bat. I wish old Uncle Bilius was still with us, though; he was a right laugh at weddings."
"Wasn't he the one who saw a Grim and died twenty-hour hours later?" asked Hermione.
"Well, yeah, he went a bit odd toward the end," conceded George.
"But before he went loopy he was the life and soul of the party," said Fred. "He used to down an entire bottle of firewhisky, then run onto the dance floor, hoist up his robes, and start pulling bunches of flowers out of his--"
"Yes, he sounds a real charmer," said Hermione, while Harry roared with laughter.
"Never married, for some reason," said Ron.
"You amaze me," said Hermione. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Dance quotes by Jimmy Tudeski
#69. How comes when a man likes an attractive female, is he helping to exploit women around the world, yet the moment he doesn't fancy the female in question, he only hates on her because she's empowering women? Seriously, I don't get it - Rihanna and Nicki do exactly the same thing as far as I can see. They both sing, dance and gyrate their sexy stuff on stage, yet one empowers women, the other is being exploited, depending on which one I fancy the most at the point of being asked the sodding question. How the fuck does any of this make sense? #Quote by Jimmy Tudeski
Dance quotes by Grazia Deledda
#70. The feast lasted nine days, the last three becoming a continuous circle dance accompanied by songs and music. Noemi always stayed on the belvedere among the banquet remains. ... No, she didn't dance, she didn't laugh, but it was enough for her to see people enjoying themselves, because she too hoped to take part in the festival of life. #Quote by Grazia Deledda
Dance quotes by Marianne Williamson
#71. Sex is not the ultimate high, but the ultimate high hangs out around sex. The ultimate high is the dance with another person, played so deep down and with such abandon that glee returns to grown-ups. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Dance quotes by Tabitha Suzuma
#72. Did you think I – I would be able to carry on, without you?" I sob, my voice muffled against his shoulder. "Did you think I'd manage to get through this thing called life without you by my side?"

"I thought you'd be better off without me – I didn't think, I couldn't think…" We are both sobbing now.

"Who else would run out on their own birthday party, force me barefoot down the fire escape, bring me fruit salad in bed, complain that I'm humming a pop song in the wrong key?" I am laughing and crying at once. "Who else would force me to dance in front of a complete stranger, learn to play the guitar overnight and accompany me when I sing?" I sniff hard and punch him on the shoulder. "How could I possibly live without you, you stupid, stupid idiot? #Quote by Tabitha Suzuma
Dance quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#73. This is it. It's finally happening. I finally get to dance with him!
At that moment - as the music began - Elend reached into his pocket and pulled out a book. He raised it with one hand, the other on her waist, and began to read.
Vin's jaw dropped, then she whacked him on the arm. "What do you think you're doing? Elend! I'm trying to have a special moment here!"
He turned toward her, smiling with a terribly mischievous grin. "Well, I want to make that special moment as authentic as possible. I mean, you are dancing with me, after all."
"For the first time!"
"All the more important to be certain that I make the right impression, Miss Valette!"
"Oh, for … Will you please just put the book away? #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Dance quotes by DJ Quik
#74. Fandango was around before the Internet. Fandango is a Spanish-American dance. It's a lively tempo dance. It's almost like the tango. That's what it says in the Merriam-Webster [dictionary]. The second entry is [defined as] 'tomfoolery.' That's what it says in the dictionary, that's what I go by. I remember Queen saying it too on 'Bohemian Rhapsody.' When I was little I never understood what they meant by 'do the fandango. #Quote by DJ Quik
Dance quotes by Elie Wiesel
#75. It used to be said that when the Baal Shem Tov came into a town, his impact was so strong, he didn't have to speak. His disciples had to dance or to sing or to preach to have the same effect. I think a real messenger, myself or anyone, by the very fact that he is there as a person, as a symbol, could have the same impact. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Dance quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#76. When I dance, I dance; when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and when I walk alone in a beautiful orchard, if my thoughts drift to far-off matters for some part of the time for some other part I lead them back again to the walk, the orchard, to the sweetness of this solitude, to myself. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Dance quotes by C.S. Lewis
#77. The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same delight in God which made David dance. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Dance quotes by Paul Robeson
#78. For the first time since I began acting, I feel that I've found my place in the world, that there's something out of my own culture which i can express and perhaps help others preserve..i have found out now that the African natives had a definite culture a long way beyond the culture of the Stone age ... an integrated thing, which is still unspoiled by western influences ... I think the Americans will be amazed to find how many of the modern dance steps are relics of African heritage. #Quote by Paul Robeson
Dance quotes by Virginia Woolf
#79. No guinea of earned money should go to rebuilding the college on the old plan just as certainly none could be spent upon building a college upon a new plan: therefore the guinea should be earmarked "Rags. Petrol. Matches." And this note should be attached to it. "Take this guinea and with it burn the college to the ground. Set fire to the old hypocrisies. Let the light of the burning building scare the nightingales and incarnadine the willows. And let the daughters of educated men dance round the fire and heap armful upon armful of dead leaves upon the flames. And let their mothers lean from the upper windows and cry, "Let it blaze! Let it blaze! For we have done with this 'education! #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Dance quotes by Rajneesh
#80. If you go and watch the way the primitive tribes live, you will know what work is in relation to celebration. They work the whole day so they can sing and dance with abandon at night. #Quote by Rajneesh
Dance quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#81. My friends and I had taken dancing lessons, although none of us would ever admit it. In those depression days, a friend of my mother was trying to make a living by teaching dancing in the evening, in an upstairs dance studio. There was a back door to the place, and she arranged it so the young men could come up through the back way without being seen. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Dance quotes by John Lennon
#82. I'm a moldy moldy man I'm moldy thru and thru I'm a moldy moldy man You would not think it true I'm moldy til my eyeballs I'm moldy til my toe I will not dance I shyballs I'm such a humble Joe. #Quote by John Lennon
Dance quotes by Rainn Wilson

Dance quotes by Nina George
#84. She'll be your dance partner, Jordan"
"Her? She's much too good. I'm scared!"
"Remember the feeling. Someday you'll want to write about it, and then it'll be good to know how the fear feels and to go ahead and dance all the same. #Quote by Nina George
Dance quotes by Colum McCann
#85. She wanted to tell him so much, on the tarmac, the day he left. The world is run by brutal men and the surest proof is their armies. If they ask you to stand still, you should dance. If they ask you to burn the flag, wave it. If they ask you to murder, re-create. Theorem, anti-theorem, corollary, anti-corollary. Underline it twice. It's all there in the numbers. Listen to your mother. Listen to me, Joshua. Look me in the eyes. I have something to tell you. #Quote by Colum McCann
Dance quotes by Michelle Geaney
#86. Put your arms around my waist,
Hold me close for a kiss and savour the taste,
I love you now I love you true,
Can I drown please in your eyes so blue?
Let's hang our hearts on a crescent moon,
And skinny-dip in starlit lakes to loves sweet tune,
Let's dance on boithrins grassy line,
And waltz 'Neath the canopied leaves of nature fine.
Lets sit afore fires on a winters night
Let me read you poetry aloud by candlelight,
Let's lay under the skylight and tell constellations apart,
And I'll remind you of the place you have in my heart. #Quote by Michelle Geaney
Dance quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#87. Satan can make men dance upon the brink of hell as though they were on the verge of heaven. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Dance quotes by Mark Nepo
#88. If you had a sad childhood, so what? You can dance with only one leg and see the snowflake falling with only one eye. - ROBERT BLY #Quote by Mark Nepo
Dance quotes by George R R Martin
#89. The white horse and the black one wheeled like lovers at a harvest dance, the riders throwing steel in place of kisses. #Quote by George R R Martin
Dance quotes by Barbara Quick
#90. The sky on a clear night is a living, pulsating thing. The stars are like musical notes turned to light, and, like notes, they shimmer and swell and fade and fall. The painters have never captured it - but they never will until some painter teaches his colors to dance. #Quote by Barbara Quick
Dance quotes by Martha Graham
#91. The world I'm interested in is the one where things are not named. #Quote by Martha Graham
Dance quotes by Laura Bell Bundy
#92. I kept writing all these ballads; they're me speaking about life. But how am I gonna do the live show I wanna do if I don't have something I can dance to? #Quote by Laura Bell Bundy
Dance quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#93. People can be, like, "you're not really that important for me to stay." And they expect me to say things like, "I can show you how important I am, more than the others", thus expecting this whole dance-of-the-human to ensue. Listen, I don't do dance-of-the-human. I am here in this place where moonlight is the only light and I don't need to be the Sun. The Moon is okay. And some people prefer the Sun, and that's okay too. I have cozy things where I am: quietness and a cat. And big windows and tea. I can let people like other things that are not me. I'm not going to be doing that dance with you. If you want to stay with me, it's going to be because you want to be near me and if you don't want to be near me then that means you want to be near someone or something else. That's okay. I don't have to be everything. I only have to be me. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Dance quotes by Kishore Bansal
#94. Loved life is full of suspence,adventures where excitement dance #Quote by Kishore Bansal
Dance quotes by Gene Kelly
#95. I got started dancing because I knew it was one way to meet girls. #Quote by Gene Kelly
Dance quotes by Victor Hugo
#96. Go out in the world and work like money doesn't matter, sing as if no one is listening, love as if you have never been hurt, and dance as if no one is watching. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Dance quotes by Charles Dance
#97. You have to attempt to be objective about yourself. #Quote by Charles Dance
Dance quotes by Scarlett Dawn
#98. The sky was molten lava of pinks, oranges, and blues, a dance of delight to the eye. #Quote by Scarlett Dawn
Dance quotes by Gotye
#99. Music makes me want to dance but I'm not sure that's something anybody wants to observe. #Quote by Gotye
Dance quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#100. This story is always yours for the telling.

This has always been yours. You can expand to fill it all or take up the smallest corner. You can write in invisible ink. You can tell your story in red wine stains and spilled ink and bite marks. You can only write in pencil so it can always be erased. You can write in layers, and turn the page and write sideways. You can spin spiral and make your words dance.

You can ink it on the surface of your skin or x-ray vision the story onto the blank canvas of your bones. You can write a novel and then let the whole thing dissolve in the waves. You can write the truth and bury it in the ground, throw it in the fire, fold it into paper airplanes and watch it fly, roll it into a note in a bottle and toss it in the ocean and let it find its own way home.

Or, you share it with the whole fucking world.

You can care and not care and care-not-care all at once.

But you get to write. And you get to choose the story you tell.

And there's no freedom bigger or bolder or braver than that. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Dance quotes by Alice Walker
#101. (a womanist)
3. Loves music. Loves dance. Loves the moon. Loves the Spirit. Loves love and food and roundness. Loves struggle. Loves the Folk. Loves herself. Regardless. #Quote by Alice Walker
Dance quotes by Charles Sorel
#102. Music and Dancing, not only give great pleasure but have the honour of depending on Mathematics, for they consist in number and in measure.....Therefore, whatever the old doctors may say, to employ oneself at all this is to be a Philosopher and a Mathematician. #Quote by Charles Sorel
Dance quotes by Nadia Gamel
#103. I am NOT a belly dancer. I have never been one, and never will be. What I do is not what Hollywood vulgarly calls 'belly dance', but it's art. I have traveled the world to prove that my dance is not a dance of the belly but a refined, artistic dance full of tradition, of dreaming and beauty. Oriental dance is primarily an expressive dance; in that resides the beauty. #Quote by Nadia Gamel
Dance quotes by William R. Parrish
#104. Sing with rapture and dance like a dervish. #Quote by William R. Parrish
Dance quotes by Mark Morris
#105. If nobody comes to your shows, then it's modern dance. If everybody comes to your shows and no one likes it, is that ballet? I don't know. #Quote by Mark Morris
Dance quotes by Muhammad Ali
#106. The fight is won or lost far away from the witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road; long before I dance under those lights. #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Dance quotes by Liza Minnelli
#107. Never stop moving, or you'll stop moving. I go to dance class every morning, and it's just good to stay strong; I like being healthy. #Quote by Liza Minnelli
Dance quotes by Marian Phillips
#108. Dance till dawn be in the sky what care you and what care I................ #Quote by Marian Phillips
Dance quotes by Amy Harmon
#109. Fern hadn't been asked to the big dance. Bailey hadn't asked anyone either. He had joked that he didn't want to make any girl dread going to her prom. He'd said it with a smile, but there was a flash of something mournful in his face. Self-pity wasn't Bailey's style, and his comment surprised Fern. So she asked Bailey if he would go with her. It was Prom, and they could sit home and sulk that they didn't have dates or they could go together. They were cousins, and it was completely lame, but being uncool was better than missing out. And it wasn't like going to Prom together would cause any image problems. They were both the epitome of lame–literally in Bailey's case, figuratively in Fern's. It wouldn't be a night for romance, but Fern had a dress for her Prom and a date too, even if it wasn't a conventional one. #Quote by Amy Harmon
Dance quotes by Martha Graham
#110. Wherever a dancer stands is holy ground. #Quote by Martha Graham
Dance quotes by Nita Ambani
#111. My father-in-law saw me at a dance performance. The next day, I got a phone call, and the caller said, 'I'm Dhirubhai Ambani ... may I talk to Nita?' I said, 'It's a wrong number' and put down the phone. Then he called again ... and I said, 'If you're Dhirubhai Ambani, then I'm Elizabeth Taylor.' #Quote by Nita Ambani
Dance quotes by Mary E. Pearson, Dance Of Thieves
#112. Truth that came too late was as useful as a meal to a dead man. #Quote by Mary E. Pearson, Dance Of Thieves
Dance quotes by Ken Follett
#113. You should first follow the plow if you want to dance the harvest jig. #Quote by Ken Follett
Dance quotes by Terry Pratchett
#114. Because some stories end, but old stories go on, and you gotta dance to the music if you want to stay ahead #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Dance quotes by David Hallberg
#115. The Bolshoi style is bigger and more emotional, in a way that I love. It has the freshness and intensity that is like what I've tried to achieve in my dance-acting roles. #Quote by David Hallberg
Dance quotes by Gail Carson Levine
#116. Would you favor me with a dance?" Over all the others I was his choice! I curtsied, and he took my hand. Our hands knew each other. Char looked at me, startled. "Have we met before, Lady? #Quote by Gail Carson Levine
Dance quotes by Jordin Sparks
#117. When I go out clubbing I can dance 'til three o'clock in the morning with just a water bottle in my hand. I love dancing to anything with a good beat really. My favorite song to dance to at the moment is probably Drake's 'Best I Ever Had.' #Quote by Jordin Sparks
Dance quotes by China Anne McClain
#118. Music and dance influence my style in a lot of ways. Sometimes I go off to work dressed up like I'm going to hit the stage and perform. #Quote by China Anne McClain
Dance quotes by Debasish Mridha
#119. My little heart, my little girl.
Dance with Daddy; dance, my pearl.
Hold my hand; dance with your feet.
Sing a little song; dance with the beat.
Dance with a smile; sing with joy.
Dance like a peacock; sing like a toy.
Dance with love; sing with kindness.
Life will be blissful, full with happiness.
Dance with Daddy; dance, my pearl.
My little heart, my little girl. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Dance quotes by Benjamin Bratt
#120. Well, for me, the real excitement of doing physical things in films, whether you're talking about a fight scene or a stunt sequence or even a love scene, for that matter, is by necessity it has to be choreographed very much like a dance. That being said, you have to rehearse it over and over again and find a mathematical precision. #Quote by Benjamin Bratt
Dance quotes by Elizabeth Tambascio
#121. You can sit with us.
You can live beside us.
You can play your music.
You can listen to mine.
We can dance together.
We can share our food.
We can keep an eye on each other's kids.
We can teach each other new languages.
We can respect traditions.
We can build new ones.
You can ask for a cup of sugar.
You can ask for directions.
You can tell me when things are hard.
You can tell me when beautiful things happen.
We can listen to stories.
We can disagree.
We can agree.
We can come to understandings.
You can wear what you want.
You can pray as you feel compelled to.
You can love who you want.
You can sit with us. #Quote by Elizabeth Tambascio
Dance quotes by Maya Angelou
#122. Never let white folks know what you really think. If you're sad, laugh. If you're bleeding inside, dance. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Dance quotes by Riker Lynch
#123. Ever since I was little I would always be singing and dancing. I learned dance moves from Michael Jackson and *Nsync. My brothers, Rydel, and I would always put on shows for family members in our basement and we charged everyone $1 to get in. #Quote by Riker Lynch
Dance quotes by Tom Jones
#124. Music is great; it all depends on what mood you're in, what you want to listen to. If it's party time, you listen to, you know, party music, if you want to dance with somebody. But then again, if it's a slow dance, you need something slow. #Quote by Tom Jones
Dance quotes by Nancy Huston
#125. There's no winning or losing in this game, only playing, endless playing, you want your adversary to be strong not weak, smart not dumb, you're delighted to trick him and delighted to be tricked by him, boy learns from girl, white learns from black, old learns from young, the teaching is the doing is the beauty is the grace is the humor, endlessly you go on learning, smiling, moving, feinting, never missing a beat. Gingare, the dance of life: the controlled, prolonged, sustained, ineffable excitement of capoeira is like an endless climax. #Quote by Nancy Huston
Dance quotes by Catherine Anderson
#126. Put your arms around my neck, sweetheart."
"Whatever for?"
He grasped her wrists and lifted her arms himself. "Because," he whispered, "we're going to dance."
...
"This will never work. I appreciate the thought. It's very sweet, but-"
"Shut up," he whispered.
The first notes of the next number drifted to them, and she realized it was the band's rendition of Montgomery's hit song, "I swear." Tears sprang to her eyes, for the instant she recognized the tune, she knew Ryan had requested it.
"Dance with me," he whispered.
"I feel foolish."
"Who'll see? Only me, and I'm our best bud, so I don't count. Besides, why should you feel foolish?"
"My legs are dangling. My feet will thump your shins."
"Those soft slippers won't hurt my shins," he assured her.
And with that, he swept her into a waltz.
-Ryan and Bethany (Phantom Waltz) #Quote by Catherine Anderson
Dance quotes by Paul Taylor
#127. I don't really think about dance except just before rehearsals start. I put it off. I don't live my life thinking about dance. #Quote by Paul Taylor
Dance quotes by Briana Evigan
#128. I don't date dancers, but I've always wanted to teach guys how to dance. #Quote by Briana Evigan
Dance quotes by Judith McNaught
#129. Didn't anyone ever tell you that a lady never deserts her partner before the dance is over?"
"It's over!" Elizabeth said in a choked whisper, and they both knew she referred to more than just the dancing. "I'm not nearly the greenhand you must take me for," she warning, frowning darkly at his frilled shirtfront. A ruby winked back at her from the folds of his white neckcloth.
"I give you my word," he said quietly, "not to force myself upon you tomorrow."
Oddly, Elizabeth believed him, but even so she knew she could never keep such an assignation.
"I give you my word as a gentleman," he said again.
"If you were a gentleman, you'd never make me such a proposition," Elizabeth said, trying to ignore the dull ache of disappointment in her chest.
"Now there's an unarguable piece of logic," he replied grimly. "On the other hand, it's the only choice open to us."
"It's no choice at all. We shouldn't even be out here."
"I'll wait for you at the cottage until noon tomorrow."
"I won't be there."
"I'll wait until noon," he insisted. #Quote by Judith McNaught
Dance quotes by Ann Reinking
#130. Sometimes I gave conflicting emotions because it's been going on for so long now, but then I see somebody dancing real well and it just comes back like an old love. The flame ignites again. #Quote by Ann Reinking
Dance quotes by Charles Dance
#131. It starts with the writing - which is really, really good. And the production values are phenomenal. HBO and Sky have spent money on it, and you get what you pay for. This has money put into it properly - not lavish amounts - but as each season is successful, they maintain the money that's being spent to maintain the quality. #Quote by Charles Dance
Dance quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#132. Listen, everything is possible in here. You can burn every spinning wheel in the kingdom. You can cut your hair before he ever gets the chance to climb up. It is possible to decline the beanstalk. You can let the old witch dance at your wedding, hand out the kind of forgiveness that would wake the dead and sleeping. You can just walk away, get on a horse, and go wake some other maiden from her narrative coffin, if you're brave, if you're strong. What do you want? Do you want to escape? Or were you looking for that candy house? #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Dance quotes by Misty Copeland
#133. 'The Firebird' just symbolizes a lot for me and my career. It was one of the first really big principal roles that I was ever given an opportunity to dance with American Ballet Theatre, and it was a huge step for the African-American community, I think, within the classical ballet world. #Quote by Misty Copeland
Dance quotes by Stan Dale
#134. The only way we are ever going to ensure peace on this planet is to adopt the entire world as "our family". We are going to have to hug them, and kiss them. And dance and play with them. And we are going to have to sit and talk and walk and cry with them. Because when we do, we'll be able to see that indeed, everyone is beautiful, and we all complement each other beautifully and we would all be poorer without each other. #Quote by Stan Dale
Dance quotes by Newton Gatambia
#135. A call to embrace democracy is the worst insult to a society that is still alien to civilisation. It is like being asked to dance to the tune of mob justice. #Quote by Newton Gatambia
Dance quotes by Guy Finley
#136. We go through our lives in a continual dance of being filled with something that needs an answer, and then going out and finding that answer ... only to find out that our answer wasn't quite the answer. #Quote by Guy Finley
Dance quotes by Steven Erikson
#137. One day, I will be a child again. Carved toys will caper and dance from my mind, out across rock I will raise as mountains. Through grasses I will proclaim forests. For too long I have been trapped in this world of measures, proportions and scale. For too long I have known and understood the limits of what is possible, so cruel in rejecting all that can be imagined. In this way, friend, we are each of us not one but two lives, for ever locked in mortal combat, and from all things at hand, we make weapons.' - Hust Henarald #Quote by Steven Erikson
Dance quotes by Frederick Lenz
#138. Nature is not something to conquer, but something to learn from or to merge with and be part of - to dance with, celebrate. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Dance quotes by Edward S. Curtis
#139. Participation in the dance was entirely voluntary, a mental vow to worship the Mystery in this manner being expressed by a man ardently desiring the recovery of a sick relative; or surrounded by an enemy with escape apparently impossible; or, it might be, dying of hunger ... since some inscrutable power had swept all game from forest and prairie. Others joined in the ceremony in the hope and firm belief that the Mystery ... would grant them successes against the enemy and consequent eminence at home. #Quote by Edward S. Curtis
Dance quotes by Lee Eisenberg
#140. Anais Nin responds to the age-old question of why some people are compelled to write:

We... write to heighten our own awareness of life, we write to lure and enchant and console others, we write to serenade our lovers. We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospection. We write, like Proust, to render all of it eternal, and to persuade ourselves that it is eternal. We write to be able to transcend our life, to reach beyond it. We write to teach ourselves to speak with others, to record the journey into the labyrinth, we write to expand our world when we feel strangled, or constricted, or lonely. We write as the birds sing. As the primitive dance their rituals. If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write.

Now, please read that one more time. But this time, substitute the word "live" for the word "write" and there you have it - the point that's always been right there in front of our nose. #Quote by Lee Eisenberg
Dance quotes by Ciara
#141. Everyone loves to dance. I've realize that's a part of what I do more and more every day. #Quote by Ciara
Dance quotes by Hannah Brencher
#142. Fear and failure, they go hand in hand. They're like dance partners with great rhythm. #Quote by Hannah Brencher
Dance quotes by Gillian Dance
#143. I can't say that many of the youngsters at church aspired to be saints or lead particularly 'Godly' lives, they canoodled, smoked pot, drank excessively and were generally a whole lot more rebellious than most of the irreligious children from my school. #Quote by Gillian Dance
Dance quotes by Sara Winters
#144. He could never know how beautiful he was in these moments, and Devin couldn't bring himself to say anything. What would he say? "I've always noticed you, but never thought I deserved someone like you?"
That wasn't right. It was cheesy and over-the-top, and still somehow inadequate to describe the maelstrom of emotions he felt when he was around Sam. Mike made it seem simple, but it wasn't. This wasn't like hooking up with a hot guy he'd met on the dance floor, it was Sam. The sweet, cerebral, quiet man who'd been his friend for nearly two years and somehow managed to sneak out of the friend box into this no man's land where every word, every gesture was a promise Devin wasn't sure he could keep. #Quote by Sara Winters
Dance quotes by Merce Cunningham
#145. The most essential thing in dance discipline is devotion, the steadfast and willing devotion to the labor that makes the classwork not a gymnastic hour and a half, or at the lowest level, a daily drudgery, but a devotion that allows the classroom discipline to become moments of dancing too ... #Quote by Merce Cunningham
Dance quotes by Vishen Lakhiani
#146. Then Richard did something surprising. He politely halted the conversation. In his flip flops, he climbed onto the table amid our plates and glasses. He then extended his hand to Kristina , who was sitting next to me, and helped her up onto the table.
"Let's dance," he said.
And they did. A beautiful slow dance right there in the middle of the feast while everyone else watched--surprised and amused--cutlery and wine glasses be damned.
It was the perfect reminder that life is not all business. We're here in this brief span of time to be happy together. #Quote by Vishen Lakhiani
Dance quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#147. When a photon comes down, it interacts with electrons throughout the glass, not just on the surface. The photon and electrons do some kind of dance, the net result of which is the same as if the photon hit only on the surface. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Dance quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#148. He moved with a slow gait. I never saw him dance. He was a man who wrote, who interpreted the world. Wisdom grew out of being handed just the smallest sliver of emotion. A glance could lead to paragraphs of theory. If he witnessed a new knot among a desert tribe or found a rare palm, it would charm him for weeks. When we came upon messages on our travels – any wording, contemporary or ancient, Arabic on a mud wall, a note in English written in chalk on the fender of a jeep – he would read it and then press his hand upon it as if to touch its possible deeper meanings, to become as intimate as he could with the words. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Dance quotes by Gelsey Kirkland
#149. When you are on stage you are having an affair with three thousand people. #Quote by Gelsey Kirkland
Dance quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#150. If you dance to your enemy's tune, his songs will poison your ears. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Dance quotes by Peter Hook
#151. I play a lot of hard, uncompromising dance music; it can be anything from dance to rock to reggae. #Quote by Peter Hook
Dance quotes by Baker Brownell
#152. Dance ... is life, or becomes it, in a way that other arts cannot attain. It is not in stone, or words or tones, but in our muscles. It is a formulation of their movements. #Quote by Baker Brownell
Dance quotes by Lisa Tawn Bergren
#153. Don't you agree? Swordplay is a dance of sorts, an understanding of the logical, most sophisticated next step. Except that in a fight, one must take the unexpected step. In dance it is all about taking the right, expected step. #Quote by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Dance quotes by Laura Miller
#154. We have but one dance to a lifetime of songs. #Quote by Laura Miller

#155. I'm the Lord of the Dance! F-k Michael Flatley, it's me! #Quote by Denis Leary
Dance quotes by Scott McClanahan
#156. I have no interest in being a trained ballerina. People should dance how they want to dance. I want to be the funky chicken. #Quote by Scott McClanahan
Dance quotes by Don Kardong
#157. Sure, the first light snowfall may be a chance to dance giddily, leaving squeaky footprints through the neighborhood, marking the runner's right to the domain. But later drubbings of snow merely complicate running. Snow turns to ice, to slush, to ice again. Tire ruts twist ankles. New snow hides the hazards. #Quote by Don Kardong
Dance quotes by Claudia Gray
#158. We won't always be free to travel wherever we will. We won't always be able to take the time to attend elaborate parties. We won't always have the chance to dance with the ones we love... So dance now. #Quote by Claudia Gray
Dance quotes by Steven Rinella
#159. The remainder of the lion... was still in my freezer that spring when I happened to turn up at the Rock Creek Lodge. This bar... is regionally famous for its annual Testicle Festival, a liquor-filled carnival where ranchers, hippies, loggers, bikers, and college kids get together in September in order to get drunk, shed clothes, dance, and occasionally fight... But on this day the Testicle Festival was still a half year away, and the bar was mostly empty except for a plastic bag of hamburger buns and an electric roasting pan that was filled with chipped meat and a tangy barbecue sauce. I was well into my third sandwich... when the owner of the place came out and asked how I liked the cougar meat. ...When I left the bar, the man called after me to announce a slogan that he'd just thought of: "Rock Creek Lodge: Balls in the fall, pussy in the spring! #Quote by Steven Rinella
Dance quotes by Dorothy Maclean
#160. When a smile touches our hearts. When the forest stills us to peace. When music moves us to rapture. When we really love, laugh or dance with joy. We are at one with the Angels. #Quote by Dorothy Maclean
Dance quotes by Martha Graham
#161. Freedom to a dancer means discipline. That is what technique is for
liberation. #Quote by Martha Graham
Dance quotes by Lewis Carroll
#162. The further off from England the nearer is to France-
Then turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance. #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Dance quotes by Rudolf Von Laban
#163. Existence is movement. Action is movement. Existence is defined by the rhythm of forces in natural balance. ( ... ) It is our appreciation for dance that allows us to see clearly the rhythms of nature and to take natural rhythm to a plane of well-organised art and culture. #Quote by Rudolf Von Laban
Dance quotes by Judith Lynne Hanna
#164. Contrary to conventional wisdom, dance is not a universal 'language' but many languages and dialects. There are close to 6000 verbal languages, and probably that many dance languages. #Quote by Judith Lynne Hanna
Dance quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#165. There is a juiciness to creativity, a succulence that comes up from within, a sensuality which both produces and is soothed by the act and product of creativity. Creativity is pleasing to us on a deep level. Be it the feel of clay in our hands, the colors that make us feel alive as we knit or sew, the meaning that we find in the words that we write, the energizing feel of movement as we dance and the music moves through our bodies. Taking part in creativity helps us to be more fully alive on every level, it asks that we engage with life in a visceral, and interactive way. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Dance quotes by Zoe Forward
#166. ...I'm hanging onto my sanity by a thread. I'll have you up against this tree and be inside you in about one second. #Quote by Zoe Forward

Dance quotes by Benjamin Aubrey Myers
#169. Like a song written on a piece of paper in the air, you may not see its notes, but as it glides, you can see its tune dance, from a love light so fair.

~Song of Susan #Quote by Benjamin Aubrey Myers
Dance quotes by Cesar Romero
#170. I was out dancing with one actress or another. And that got press. Even when it didn't, the whole town knew I was a dancing fool, and since I couldn't very well dance with a man, they saw me dancing with a lady, and they assumed the rest. #Quote by Cesar Romero
Dance quotes by Melissa Albert
#171. Lana left, and a guy named Norm came in to replace her. He spent the next three hours talking about a hangout he had with Lana that may or may not have been a date, not that he was worried about it, but what did I think and had Lana mentioned him?

I gave him non-committal answers until I finally cracked. " Jesus Christ, Norm. This is the 'move on with your life' dance." I did a dance like I was imitating a train. "There, did that work? Lana's literally never said your name in my presence."

The injured look on his face gave me a flush of dark satisfaction. "Damn, Alice, that's cold." He took off his hat, folded the brim to make it more pretentious, and re-perched it on his head. #Quote by Melissa Albert
Dance quotes by Aleksandr Voinov
#172. For me, he can walk on water, dance in the clouds. I know he can't, really, but what he can and can't do pales into nothing when I look at him. #Quote by Aleksandr Voinov

#173. A weeping grey sky

Bright daffodils dance. #Quote by A.K. White

#174. You don't ask what a dance means. You enjoy it. You don't ask what the world means. You enjoy it. You don't ask what you mean. You enjoy it. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Dance quotes by Jim Butcher
#175. I'm never really comfortable at parties. Maybe I'm just not the partying type.
... I think it's because I'm never sure what to do with myself.
I mean, there're drinks, but I don't like being drunk ... There's music, but I never really learned to dance to anything that involved an electric guitar. There are people to talk to ... but once you put all the stupid things I do aside, I'm really not that interesting. I like reading, staying home, going on walks with my dog ... Who wants to hear about that? Especially when I would have to scream it over music to which no one dances.
So I'm there but not drinking, listening to music but not dancing, and trying to have conversations with near-strangers about anything other than my own stupid life ... Leads to a lot of awkward pauses. And then I start wondering why I showed up in the first place.
Cold Days (The Dresden Files Book 14), pg. 33 #Quote by Jim Butcher
Dance quotes by Andy Warhol
#176. The key of the success of Studio 54 is that it's a dictatorship at the door and a democracy on the dance floor. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Dance quotes by Nicholson Baker
#177. I hadn't played any music since freshman year of college, more than thirty years ago, so I had to relearn everything. I started writing songs. Some were dance and trance songs (I listen to them a lot while I'm writing), and some were love songs, because that after all is what music is about - dancing and trancing and love and love's setbacks. #Quote by Nicholson Baker
Dance quotes by Debbie Moon
#178. Why don't you take Rhydian? #Quote by Debbie Moon
Dance quotes by Kapka Kassabova
#179. ...Tango is not just a dance. It's our human condition. To everyone who loves tango, it's what art is to the artist. A way to connect past and future. But you already know this my dear... #Quote by Kapka Kassabova
Dance quotes by David Levithan
#180. But isn't this a dance? Isn't all of this a dance? Isn't that what we do with words? Isn't that what we do when we talk, when we spar, when we make plans or leave it to chance? Some of it's choreographed. Some of the steps have been done for ages. And the rest
the rest is spontaneous. The rest has to be decided on the floor, in the moment, before the music ends. #Quote by David Levithan
Dance quotes by Dichen Lachman
#181. I would love to be able to program myself to pick up any instrument and to be able to play it very, very well, and to be able to read music and dance as well. I'm very uncoordinated, and I'd love to be able to bust a really great move. #Quote by Dichen Lachman
Dance quotes by Tom Petty
#182. Last dance with Mary Jane
One more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm
Tired of this town again #Quote by Tom Petty
Dance quotes by A.E. Via
#183. Baby," Day said softly, his throat still sore from being choked.

God turned around slowly and faced him. Day choked up at the pained expression on his man's face. He could see that God's eyes were moist and red-rimmed. Day inched toward him and didn't stop until he was pressed against that broad chest. God's strong arms came around him and squeezed him hard. The guttural moan the man released against his temple made Day's heart seize.

God pulled back and gripped a handful of Day's hair pulling so that he was looking up at him. God bent down and oh so gently grazed his soft lips across his. Day's body vibrated from the sensual feeling. God rubbed his face all over Day's as if he was marking him with his scent. God's grip tightened in his hair and he moaned again. Day could feel God's body trembling and Day didn't know at that moment if the shaking was from residual fear or need, so he didn't move as he let his lover do what he needed to do.

God released the punishing grip and his large palms shook as they ghosted over Day's face. His chin was tilted up by firm fingers and again was blessed with feathery-soft kisses. God leaned back in and draped his arms completely around him and Day embraced him back. The soft piano from the album serenaded them and God just barely rocked their bodies back and forth in a very slow dance. Every few seconds he'd stop to place kisses on his forehead before leaning back in. #Quote by A.E. Via
Dance quotes by R.L. Mathewson
#184. Not when the love of his life was waiting for him and there was absolutely no doubt in his mind now that he loved her. He loved absolutely everything about this woman from that cocky little grin that she was shooting him to that sad little victory dance that she was doing.

He fucking adored her. #Quote by R.L. Mathewson
Dance quotes by Sonia Faleiro
#185. To be in the dance bar you have to be young, good looking, able to dance, and comfortable talking to people. #Quote by Sonia Faleiro
Dance quotes by Wade Davis
#186. All cultures through all time have constantly been engaged in a dance with new possibilities for life. Change is the one constant in human history. #Quote by Wade Davis
Dance quotes by Dimitrios Spyridon Chytiris
#187. It has been ages since the last time you enjoyed the night more than what you enjoy your overcoat.
Then you would dance the night, now you wear the night,
It is an accessory to hide you from everyone #Quote by Dimitrios Spyridon Chytiris
Dance quotes by Douglas Booth
#188. I love to dance and dance all night long. #Quote by Douglas Booth
Dance quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#189. On Generosity

On our own, we conclude:
there is not enough to go around

we are going to run short
of money
of love
of grades
of publications
of sex
of beer
of members
of years
of life

we should seize the day
seize our goods
seize our neighbours goods
because there is not enough to go around

and in the midst of our perceived deficit
you come
you come giving bread in the wilderness
you come giving children at the 11th hour
you come giving homes to exiles
you come giving futures to the shut down
you come giving easter joy to the dead
you come – fleshed in Jesus.

and we watch while
the blind receive their sight
the lame walk
the lepers are cleansed
the deaf hear
the dead are raised
the poor dance and sing

we watch
and we take food we did not grow and
life we did not invent and
future that is gift and gift and gift and
families and neighbours who sustain us
when we did not deserve it.

It dawns on us – late rather than soon-
that you "give food in due season
you open your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing."

By your giving, break our cycles of imagined scarcity
override our presumed deficits
quiet our anxieties of lack
transform our perceptual field to see
the abundance………mercy upon mercy

Dance quotes by Olly Murs
#190. I suppose I've got a natural rhythm. When I was little, I used to just dance a lot and have some fun. I'd never been taught to dance. I've never been to dance school. I do my own little dance moves. #Quote by Olly Murs
Dance quotes by Sandy Oshiro Rosen
#191. Community is about sharing my life; about allowing the chaos of another's circumstances to infringe on mine; about permitting myself to be known without constraint; about resigning myself to needing others. #Quote by Sandy Oshiro Rosen
Dance quotes by Stephen Minkin
#192. (Regarding a twenty-questions game:)

Did you know that the Russian composer Aram Katchaturian described his 'Sabre Dance' as no more than a button on the shirt on the body of his work? No? You're not alone. Suppose my twenty-questions answer was that metaphorical button - would that be fair? #Quote by Stephen Minkin
Dance quotes by Joanna Weaver
#193. I'm trying to learn that in my Christian walk as well. If I'll move to the beat of the Spirit and relinquish control of my life to Him, I'll be able to dance to the music God has playing in His head rather than movin' and agroovin' to the catchy little tunes I've got going in my own. For when I allow the Lord to provide the accompaniment to my life, I discover a richly layered soundtrack more beautiful than anything I could compose myself. But following God's beat, dancing to His rhythm, trusting in His sovereignty - all that can be hard for a rhythmically challenged, control-loving person like me. Because when it comes right down to it, I'm a headstrong little girl who wants her own way in pretty much every area of life. Fortunately, I have a Father who loves me in spite of that. But while He loves me as I am, He also loves me too much to leave me that way. So He insists I follow His lead in order to "grow up" in my salvation (1 Peter 2:2). Becoming more like Jesus and less like me. #Quote by Joanna Weaver
Dance quotes by Langston Hughes
#194. If you want to honor me, give some young boy or girl who's coming along trying to create arts and write and compose and sing and act and paint and dance and make something out of the beauties of the Negro race-give that child some help. #Quote by Langston Hughes
Dance quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#195. Because lascivious or venal lips had murmured the same words to him, he now had little belief in their sincerity when he heard them from Emma; they should be taken with a grain of salt, he thought, because the most exaggerated speeches usually hid the weakest feelings - as though the fullness of the soul did not sometimes overflow into the emptiest phrases, since no one can ever express the exact measure of his needs, his conceptions, or his sorrows, and human speech is like a cracked pot on which we beat out rhythms for bears to dance to when we are striving to make music that will wring tears from the stars. #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Dance quotes by David Levithan
#196. Then I told her what I didn't see. Namely, that I didn't see her.
You could be standing a few feet away - Clara's dance partner, or across the street taking a picture of Rudolph before he takes �ight. I could have
sat next to you on the subway, or brushed beside you as we went through the turnstiles. But whether or not you are here, you are here - because
these words are for you, and they wouldn't exist if you weren't here in some way. This notebook is a strange instrument - the player doesn't know
the music until it's being played. #Quote by David Levithan
Dance quotes by Mimi Novic
#197. We all need to be far more gentler with each other.
And realise that some people's heart's injure with far more ease than others and dance to a quieter music. #Quote by Mimi Novic
Dance quotes by Blake Snyder
#198. You can be near the cliché, you can dance around it, you can run right up to it and almost embrace it. But at the last second you must turn away.
You must give it a twist. #Quote by Blake Snyder
Dance quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#199. There are dance artists, painting artists and writing artists. Authors are writing artists. You can practice art in whatever medium you choose, and words are mine. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Dance quotes by Nagwa Fouad
#200. This dance isn't just about shaking your waist and your ass. #Quote by Nagwa Fouad
