Martha Graham quotes :
To me, a building - if it's beautiful - is the love of one man, he's made it out of his love for space, materials, things like that.Martha Graham
Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.Martha Graham
We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.Martha Graham
Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.Martha Graham
