Below: Missing? YOU!
"We need enthusiasm, imagination, and the ability to face facts, even unpleasant ones." Franklin Roosevelt

"Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self confidence." Robert Frost

"When a dancer comes onstage, he is not just a blank slate that the choreographer has written on. Behind him he has all the decisions he has made in life. . . You are looking at the person he is, the person he cannot help but be. . . Exceptional dancers, in my experience, are also exceptional people, people with an attitude toward life, a kind of quest, and an internal quality. They know who they are, and they show this to you, willingly." Mikhail Baryshnikov

"The relationship that solves your problems is the relationship you have with yourself." Diane Von Furstenberg

"There's so much talk of self-improvement, living your best life, being faster, smaller, busier, more satisfied, and better rested, that the idea of celebrating what you are right now, suddenly seemed rather daring and radical. Dissembling, prevaricating, compensating and exaggerating are such a large part of modern life. Most people find the reverse - a sort of astringent openness and sincerity - either embarrassing, risky to the point of insanity, or plain unbearable. The whole experience was rather reviving."
Susie Boyt "In Praise of the Selfish Life" (Financial Times)
