What's so wonderful about ballet is that it's mind-driven physicality. It's almost a Greek ideal of #body , #mind , and #form . #Ballet dancers are a self-chosen elite. To survive and surmount years of disciplinary preparation and seasons of even more arduous performance requires rigid determination and almost mindless self-abnegation. Learning ballet is wonderful for children even if they never become dancers. It is wonderful because it teaches #discipline , #grace , and #manners .

The discipline that ballet requires is obsessive. And only the ones who dedicate their whole lives are able to make it. There are no taking days off. There are no distractions. Ballet is the repetitive training of the body for the purpose of executing steps. It is a disciplined beauty. #Wrestling is ballet with violence.
#Gatsby had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced, or seemed to face, the whole external world for an instant and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor.
