afro-art-chick:

“Art serves me. I didn’t serve it. But I have to be a servant before it serves me. In other words, I have to be disciplined. There is no such thing as freedom without discipline. The one who is free is disciplined.”

“I used every gift God gave me. The gift of love is the greatest. It’s a difficult thing because there are people I know that I can’t stand. But love doesn’t mean affection. It means treating them justly even when they are terrible people. That takes a but of doing, an awful lot of grace.”


Happy Birthday to ballet dancer, choreographer and the first African American member of the Metropolitan Opera’s ballet company in New York City, Janet Collins (b. March 7, 1917)
