Martha Graham quotes (25)

'Age' is the acceptance of a term of years. But maturity is the glory of years.
Martha Graham   Category:

Censorship is the height of vanity.
Martha Graham   Category:

Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.
Martha Graham   Category:

Every dance is a kind of fever chart, a graph of the heart.
Martha Graham   Category:

Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men.

First we have to believe, and then we believe.
Martha Graham   Category:

Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.
Martha Graham   Category:

Martha Graham   Category:

Learn by practice.
Martha Graham   Category:

Misery is a communicable disease.
Martha Graham   Category:

No artist is ahead of his time. He is his time; it is just that others are behind the times.
Martha Graham   Category:

Nothing is more revealing than movement.
Martha Graham   Category:

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   Category:

Some men have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can.
Martha Graham   Category:

The body is a sacred garment.
Martha Graham   Category: Health

The body is your instrument in dance, but your art is outside that creature, the body.
Martha Graham   Category:

The body never lies.
Martha Graham   Category:

The body says what words cannot.
Martha Graham   Category:

The only sin is mediocrity.
Martha Graham   Category:

Theater is a verb before it is a noun, an act before it is a place.
Martha Graham   Category:

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.
Martha Graham   Category:

Think of the magic of that foot, comparatively small, upon which your whole weight rests. It's a miracle, and the dance is a celebration of that miracle.
Martha Graham   Category:

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   Category: Architecture

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   Category:

You are unique, and if that is not fulfilled, then something has been lost.
