It is when the music and the lights, and the colour and the thronging dancers, and the floor and the perfume and the rhythm and the four winds and the seven seas and the everlasting hills, and youth and hope and glory and desire, and pride and beauty and remembered joys are all fused in a singing, sliding, throbbing ecstacy of rosy mist, and one has forgotten time and death and the King’s taxes, that one realizes how life is life and that the waltz is it.

~Robert Blatchford
