Famous quotes containing the words music and/or dance:

    The music stopp’d, and I stood still,
    And found myself outside the Hill,
    Left alone against my will,
    To go now limping as before,
    And never hear of that country more!”
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    Ah, it is sweet on the hills,
    to dance in sacred faun-pelt,
    to dance until one falls faint,
    to beat the sacred dance-beat
    until one drops down
    worn out.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
