Famous quotes containing the words dancing and/or strictly:

    Dance is bigger than the physical body. ...When you extend your arm, it doesn’t stop at the end of your fingers, because you’re dancing bigger than that; you’re dancing spirit.
    Judith Jamison (b. 1943)

    The human imagination ... has great difficulty in living strictly within the confines of a materialist practice or philosophy. It dreams, like a dog in its basket, of hares in the open.
    John Berger (b. 1926)
