I was very sensitive. I liked everything that touched fantasy and beauty. I dreamed of being a ballerina, but Mother said I was too big, too long. Jacqueline de Ribes

Over the years, I had my heart broken so badly that if I didn't find a way to get all the pain out, I was going to lose my mind. I was crazy! Like, wanting to slash tires and smash car windows. Crazy! I was so hurt that I had to write. Jill Scott
I was not awesome at dancing. For a ballerina, I probably started too late. Plus I enjoyed entertaining people too much. Judy Greer
I wanted to be a ballerina. I changed my mind. Beverly Cleary
