The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

FAVOURITE QUOTE: "Dancers are the only athletes who aren't allowed to show how much it hurts."
REASON: It hurts physically but if you take its figurative meaning, pain is something that reminds me of Martha Grahams' words

"Dance is a song of the body. Either of joy or pain"

Those quotes rock, don't they now...:bouncy:

"Success is always to be found on the other side of fear."

Nice one, isnt'it? It keeps you going and reminds you how good and creative fear can be...

I just stole this from Yana:

Dan Rather that summarizes my instructor completely: "The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called 'truth'."

"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down "Happy".
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life."

just received an email with this quote which made me feel a little better about the 2 bags of chips I had for lunch :-|

"Wellness isn't about deprivation, and it's not about perfection. It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth, training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential, and then taking small steps to support that shift. It's about showing up for yourself, day by day, and then one day finding that you've undergone a transformation."
— Kathy Freston
