La expresión más auténtica de un pueblo está en sus danzas y su música. Los cuerpos nunca mienten. ~ Long experience has taught me that the crux of my fortunes is whether I can radiate good will toward my audience. There is only one way to do it and that is to feel it.You can fool the eyes and minds of the audience,but you cannot fool their hearts.~
