An excerpt from 'The Wanderer' by Khalil Gibran

Once there came to the court of the Prince of Birkasha, a dancer and her musicians...She danced the dance of flames and fire, and the dance of swords and spears; she danced the dance of stars and the dance of space, and then she danced the dance of flowers in the wind.

When she had finished, she approached the prince and bowed her body before him. The prince bade her to come nearer, and said unto her, "Beautiful woman, daughter of grace and delight, whence comes your art and how is it that you command all the elements in your rhythms and your rhymes?" And the dancer came near and bowed her body again and said, "Gracious majesty, I know not the answer to your questionings. Only this I know:

The philosophers soul dwells within his head, the poets soul dwells within his heart, the singers soul dwells about his throat, but the soul of the dancer abides in all her body."
