Quotations About / On: DANCE
Interpreting the dance: young women in white dancing in a ring can only be virgins; old women in black dancing in a ring can only be witches; but middle-aged women in colors, square dancing...?
(Mason Cooley (b. 1927), U.S. aphorist. City Aphorisms, Fourth Selection, New York (1987).)
Yes, dance. Dance and dream. Dream that you're Mrs. Henry Jekyll of Harley Street, dancing with your own butler and six footmen. Dream that they've all turned into white mice and crawled into an eternal pumpkin.
(John Lee Mahin (1902-1984), U.S. screenwriter, and Victor Fleming. Dr. Henry Jekyll (Spencer Tracy), "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"., Taunting the barmaid Ivy Peterson as he kills her. (1941).
Based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson.)
I would only believe in a god who knew how to dance.

Once you are dancing with the devil, the prettiest capers won't help you.
