Famous quotes containing the words ballet, california and/or riverside:

    Anyone who has a child today should train him to be either a physicist or a ballet dancer. Then he’ll escape.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    I can’t earn my own living. I could never make anything turn into money. It’s like making fires. A careful assortment of paper, shavings, faggots and kindling nicely tipped with pitch will never light for me. I have never been present when a cigarette butt, extinct, thrown into a damp and isolated spot, started a conflagration in the California woods.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)

    Upset at the young wife’s
    first loss of virtue
    in a riverside thicket,
    a flock of birds
    flies up,
    mourning the loss
    with their wings.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
