"The astonishing structure of the body and the amazing actions it can perform are some of the greatest miracles of existence. Each phase of a movement, every small transference of weight, every single gesture of any part of the body reveals some feature of our inner life.” Rudolf Laban. "The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect, but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves." Carl Gustav Jung. "Happiness resides Not in possessions And not in gold, The feeling of happiness Dwells in the soul." Democritus.
