A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on dance, calling, being, and alpha and omega

"If my virtue be a dancers virtue
And if I have often sprung with both feet
    into golden-emerald rapture
And if it be an Alpha and Omega
    that everything heavy shall become light
Every body a dancer
And every Spirit a bird:
Verily, that is my Alpha and Omega"

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

A Quote by Shams-ud-din Muhammad (Hafiz) on love, angel, dance, god, heart, mind, style, waltz, crush, sweet, kiss, charm, patience, gamble, divine, and music

You have
not danced so badly, my dear,
trying to hold hands with the Beautiful One.

You have waltzed with great style, my sweet, crushed angel,
to have ever neared God's heart at all.

Our Partner is notoriously difficult to follow, and even His
best musicians are not always easy to hear.

So what if the music has stopped for a while.
So what if the price of admission to the Divine is out of reach tonight.

So what, my sweetheart, if you lack the ante to gamble for real love.

The mind and the body are famous for holding the heart ransom,
but Hafiz knows the Beloved's eternal habits. Have patience,
for He will not be able to resist your longings
and charms for long.

You have not danced so badly, my dear,
trying to kiss the Magnificent

You have actually waltzed with tremendous style,
my sweet, O my sweet,

Beside the fire,
as the wood burns black, 
A  laughing dancer in veils of light,
Whose dance transforms the darkness to gold.

A Quote by Katharine Dever on celebrate, celebration, life, dance, flow, dancing, unique, and uniqueness

We have so much to celebrate!! There is a permanent party rocking the Universe! We are all standing on one giant revolving dance floor- get out there and do your thing and do it well! Dance the dance of life, and let your own unique and beautiful rhythm flow. Hey, reckon you can't dance? Did you know that six trillion actions occur in the human body every second, every single one of which is working in correlation with all the others! This infinite organizing power is working for you at any given second, how is that for coordination! All you need is in you. You are already dancing inside now you just let it show!
