Sunday Four Legs

Sunday Four Legs

Dance is a competitive business. Dance is competitive recreation. This tends to breed situations where dancers say or do things that they shouldn’t, and this can be especially true for teenagers.

There are several stories from different cultures that involve three pillars, three ideas, three questions or three affirmations that are used to guide an individual into thinking before speaking (or doing) something debatable. Today’s link discusses these three questions, but I am going to add a fourth one. 

Imagine a chair or table – without any one of the four legs, the chair will topple and bad things can result.

Here are four things to ask yourself before you speak or act: 

1.       Is it true?
2.       Is it kind?
3.       Is it necessary?
4.       Would you want it said (or done) about you?

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #78:  
“ Remember the four legs of support.”

Quote of the Day:
“You are master of what you say until you utter it, once you deliver it, you are its captive. Preserve your tongue as you do your gold and money. One word could bring disgrace and the termination of a bliss.”
Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib A.S
