Before leaving to dance, I will post two poems that have caused a big impression on me.

Rainer Maria Rilke

I am too alone in the world, and not alone enough to make every moment holy.

I am too tiny in this world, and not tiny enough just to lie before you like a thing, shrewd and secretive.

I want my own will, and I want simply to be with my will, as it goes towards action,

and in the silent, sometimes hardly moving times when something is coming near,

I want to be with those who know secret things, or else alone.

Facundo Cabral

Thanks to solitude I know myself, something necessary for living.

Life does not take away things, it liberates you from things: it frees you so that you may soar higher, so that you may become fulfilled.

From the crib to the grave, life is a school; things you call problems are lessons.

You didn't lose anyone: the one who died is simply ahead of us, because there is where we are all headed. Besides, the best of them, love, is still in your heart.

Do only what you love and you will be happy. The one who does what he loves, is blessedly condemned to success, which will arrive when it has to arrive, because what is meant to be will be, and will find its way naturally.

Don't ever do anything out of obligation, but out of love. Then you will find fulfillment, and in this fullness everything is possible without effort, because life's natural forces will move you.

God put you in charge of a human being, and that is yourself. You must make yourself free and happy. Then you will be able to share the true life with others.

Reconcile with yourself, put yourself in front of the mirror and think that the creature you are seeing is God's work and decide now to be happy, because happiness is acquired.

Besides, happiness is not a right but an obligation. There are so many things to enjoy, and our passage through this earth so short, that suffering is a waste of time.

Help the child that needs you, that child will be the partner of your son. Help old folks and the young ones will help you when you grow old.

Besides, being at the service of others is sure happiness, as is enjoying nature and caring for it for the ones who will come after us.

Give without measure, and you will be given without measure.

Love until you become the loved; even more, love until you become love itself.

God sends you flowers every spring.

He sends you a sunrise every morning.

Every time you want to speak, he listens, he can live in any part of the universe, but he chose your heart.

Face it, my friend. He is crazy for you!

God did not promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but he did promise strength for each day, consolation for your tears, and light for the way.

When life shows you a thousand reasons to cry, show that you have a thousand and one reasons to smile.

The only thing that crumbles away is the body. But I am not the body. The body is the temple of the soul, and the vehicle that takes me from the crib to the grave. I am my spirit, my soul, and the ideas that give form to my neurons.
