One example of an inspiring quote about dance is "There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them," by Vicki Baum. Another example is "When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way," by Wayne Dyer.
Vicki Baum was an Austrian writer during the early- to mid-20th century. One of her first internationally successful works was "Menschen im Hotel," which translates to "People at a Hotel." This piece was adapted into a film in 1932 and became a Broadway musical in 1989. Additional works from Baum include "The Mustard Seed" and "Hotel Shanghai."
Wayne Dyer was an American author and motivational speaker of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. His self-help tone "Your Erroneous Zones," published in 1976, became one of the world's all-time best-selling books, with over 35 million copies sold as of 2015. Other well-known works by Dyer include "The Power of Intention," "Getting in the Gap" and "Change Your Thoughts - Change Your Life." Dyer's work is greatly influenced by Abraham Maslow's concept of self-actualization, Swami Muktananda, Lao Tzu and Saint Francis of Assisi. Dyer considered Swami Muktananda to be his spiritual master.
