Famous quotes containing the words tradition and/or dance:

    It is characteristic of the epistemological tradition to present us with partial scenarios and then to demand whole or categorical answers as it were.
    Avrum Stroll (b. 1921)

    The author’s conviction on this day of New Year is that music begins to atrophy when it departs too far from the dance; that poetry begins to atrophy when it gets too far from music; but this must not be taken as implying that all good music is dance music or all poetry lyric. Bach and Mozart are never too far from physical movement.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
