"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy...that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist...It is not your business to determine how good it is...It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open."

Martha Graham
