In my ballets, woman is first. Men are consorts. God made men to sing the praises of women. They are not equal to men: They are better.
In ballet a complicated story is impossible to tell… we can’t dance synonyms.
God creates, I do not create. I assemble and I steal everywhere to do it – from what I see, from what the dancers can do, from what others do.
It is better to have no man by your side, than an ungrateful one.
Better a glorious death than life dragged out in shame!
True and righteous justice goes from heart to heart.
Hazard kills equally be one or a hundred.
Man is grieved and maddened by the discourse of evil men.
Nothing flows out of a pitcher except that already inside it.
The lion’s whelps are equal be they male or female.
Did ever a star declare enmity to even the waning moon?
What god decrees not, no mortal can force into being.
The valorous knight craves glory, he cares little for booty.
No man can true evil to good, nor can he be born once again.
No one can force into being that which is not to be.
