“You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you.”
Isadora Duncan, Isadora Speaks: Uncollected Writings and Speeches of Isadora Duncan

“It has taken me years of struggle, hard work, and research to learn to make one simple gesture, and I know enough about the art of writing to realize that it would take as many years of concentrated effort to write one simple, beautiful sentence.”
Isadora Duncan

“If I could tell you what it meant, there would be no point in dancing it”
Isadora Duncan
