Misty Copeland on determination: “Even when you think you’ve arrived, you have to keep working. Not everyone is going to like you or think you’re the right fit. But hearing no makes you stronger.”

Misty Copeland on being cast in a 2009 Prince music video: “I began to understand my full potential… Having someone say ‘I trust you and your talent’ was all it took to start feeling like I could be in control of my career and make things happen on my own.”

  1. Wonderful style !

    “She dances with her whole heart and soul: her figure is all harmony,
    elegance, and grace, as if she were conscious of nothing else, and
    had no other thought or feeling; and, doubtless, for the moment,
    every other sensation is extinct…”
