Jerome Robbins quotes

  • Many other women have kicked higher, balanced longer, or turned faster. These are poor substitutes for passion.

  • Modern dancers give a sinister portent about our times.

  • Ballet technique never becomes easy, it becomes possible

  • To make up a dance, I still need, as I needed then, a pot of tea, walking space, privacy and an idea.

  • The chief danger of the Church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world, instead of turning the world upside down. Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they bring opposition and conflict. Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis.  God give to us an intense cry for the old-time power of the Gospel and the Holy Ghost!

  • Begin to rejoice in the Lord, and your bones will flourish like an herb, and your cheeks will glow with the bloom of health and freshness. Worry, fear, distrust, care-all are poisonous! Joy is balm and healing, and if you will but rejoice, God will give power.

  • There is not a command God gives to His children for which He does not provide the enablement for obedience.

  • A diary need not be a dreary chronicle of one's movements; it should aim rather at giving salient account of some particular episode, a walk, a book, a conversation.

  • The Lord has different names according to His different activities. For example, His name is Madhusüdana because He killed the demon of the name Madhu; His name is Govinda because He gives pleasure to the cows and to the senses

  • Well, fancy giving money to the Government! Might as well have put it down the drain.
