Israelmore Ayivor

“You can dance in the storm. Don't wait for the rain to be over before because it might take too long. You can do it now. Wherever you are,  right now, you can start, right now; this very moment.”   

William W. Purkey

   “You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,  Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like there's nobody listening,  And live like it's heaven on earth.”  

Friedrich Nietzsche

  “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
