Martha Graham Quotes

35 Martha Graham quotes:

"Who has not found the Heaven below / Will fail of it above ... His eagerness, his voracity, a blood memory, in the sense that he can extract more from his life than what he has really lived. He must have a will to explore unknown feelings and dare to feel them. This may seem terrifying, but it has to be done because there is no other option."
