Uniquely You

EXIT MARTHA GRAHAM

“Because there is only one of you in all of time, [your] expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good [your expression] is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to .. keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you… No artist is pleased… There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive…”
― Martha Graham
