Tangerine tango was still in. Cardigans without buttons were in. Bahia bands were in. Senhor do Bonfim. Make a wish? But hardly anyone considered the most radical move: be yourself. Beauty is always a revolutionary act. — Chris Campanioni

Tango Quotes By DJ Quik

Fandango was around before the Internet. Fandango is a Spanish-American dance. It's a lively tempo dance. It's almost like the tango. That's what it says in the Merriam-Webster [dictionary]. The second entry is [defined as] 'tomfoolery.' That's what it says in the dictionary, that's what I go by. I remember Queen saying it too on 'Bohemian Rhapsody.' When I was little I never understood what they meant by 'do the fandango. — DJ Quik

Tango Quotes By Laini Taylor

Kizzy wanted to be a woman who would dive off the prow of a sailboat into the sea, who would fall back in a tangle of sheets, laughing, and who could dance a tango, lazily stroke a leopard with her bare foot, freeze an enemy's blood with her eyes, make promises she couldn't possibly keep, and then shift the world to keep them. She wanted to write memoirs and autograph them at a tiny bookshop in Rome, with a line of admirers snaking down a pink-lit alley. She wanted to make love on a balcony, ruin someone, trade in esoteric knowledge, watch strangers as coolly as a cat. She wanted to be inscrutable, have a drink named after her, a love song written for her, and a handsome adventurer's small airplane, champagne-christened Kizzy, which would vanish one day in a windstorm in Arabia so that she would have to mount a rescue operation involving camels, and wear an indigo veil against the stinging sand, just like the nomads.
Kizzy wanted. — Laini Taylor

Tango Quotes By Addie Zierman

[His faith] was a hundred small perfect steps that in the end can never add up to dance ... not the kind I wanted, anyway. Not the tango of Argentina, of the Spanish birthday party. — Addie Zierman

My goal now is to dance all the dances as long as I can, and then to sit down contented after the last elegant tango some sweet night and pass on because there wasn't another dance left in me. — Robert Fulghum

Tango Quotes By Thomas Pynchon

I am the twentieth century. I am the ragtime and the tango; sans-serif, clean geometry. I am the virgin's-hair whip and the cunningly detailed shackles of decadent passion. I am every lonely railway station in every capital of Europe. I am the Street, the fanciless buildings of government. the cafe-dansant, the clockwork figure, the jazz saxophone, the tourist-lady's hairpiece, the fairy's rubber breasts, the travelling clock which always tells the wrong time and chimes in different keys. I am the dead palm tree, the Negro's dancing pumps, the dried fountain after tourist season. I am all the appurtenances of night. — Thomas Pynchon

Tango Quotes By Erin McCarthy

If this were a musical, this would signal the start of a dance number. Angry girls sexy danse in unison around the bull pen. Men stride up and grab a partner to a choreographed tango."
Nolan held his hand out.
"Give me your man card. You have never sounded more like a girl than right now. — Erin McCarthy

Tango Quotes By Carlos Gavito

The important thing is to know why we want to dance. We dance a solitude that we have inside us and cannot occupy with anything. This gap, that emptiness to which we put movement is the TANGO. — Carlos Gavito

Tango Quotes By Lindsey Buckingham

Even though I had pushed through the Tango album, it was just not a very good environment to be in on a daily basis. In many ways, this is the best time of my life. — Lindsey Buckingham

Tango Quotes By Marina Abramovic

When you're 50, the best thing to do is dance the Argentinean tango. — Marina Abramovic

Tango Quotes By Ian McKeever

Everyone should learn to tango in Argentina before they die. — Ian McKeever

Tango Quotes By Kurt Vonnegut

(a man in love speaking)
"I don't notice much of anything anymore but Marie." He laid his hand on his chest. "This force," he said, "it just does with you what it wants to do with you, makes you feel what it wants to make you feel."
"TangoKurt Vonnegut

Tango Quotes By Zainab T. Khan

And I knew, then and there, that no matter what happens one should never let the negatives in their life become the manifesto of their whole being. It always takes two to tango. Negatives don't come without positives. — Zainab T. Khan

Tango Quotes By Dana Gould

Whoever thought to name a candy bar Butterfinger has either never seen Last Tango In Paris or seen it far too many times. — Dana Gould

Tango Quotes By Keira D. Skye

His kiss was like no other! His kiss was enchanted and fairy-tale like. He applied pressure, but just enough to feel his tenderness and warmth. I could feel his heart beating wildly as he pressed his chest against my chest all the while his loving lips brushed up against mine with a care-filled affection. His tongue lightly licked the outer edges of my mouth, and then searched for my tongue. The pursuit allowed a marriage of both tongues to meet - inspiring a mingling tango of hot and heavy French kissing to manifest profusely. We kissed like two hot and horny teenagers, our mouths moving and craving each others lips, in animalistic desires! — Keira D. Skye

Tango Quotes By Lorrie Moore

Sometimes it seemed that she and rudy were two people attempting to tango, sweating and trying, long after the orchestra had grown tired, long after everyone else had gone home. — Lorrie Moore

Tango Quotes By Kurt Vonnegut

Human beings used to be molecules which could do many, many different sorts of dances, or decline to dance at all
as they pleased. My mother could do the waltz, the tango, the rumba ... — Kurt Vonnegut

Tango Quotes By A.M. Willard

That's because those pages got torn to shreds when you left, now you both are in different chapters. He wants you - like always, and you want the hot guy down the street. Typical Frankie and Brody style. You guys dance one wild tango, if you ask me. — A.M. Willard

Tango Quotes By David Byrne

A history of nightlife!
what an interesting concept. A history of a people, told not through their daily travails and successive political upheavals, but via the changes in their nightly celebrations and unwindings. History is, in this telling, accompanied by a bottle of Malbec, some fine Argentine steak, tango music, dancing, and gossip. It unfolds through and alongside illicit activities that take place in the multitude of discos, dance parlors, and clubs. Its direction, the way people live, is determined on half-lit streets, in bars, and in smoky late-night restaurants. This history is inscribed in songs, on menus, via half-remembered conversations, love affairs, drunken fights, and years of drug abuse. — David Byrne

Tango Quotes By Judy Parfitt

Look at Nicola Walker in 'Last Tango in Halifax.' She has the most wonderful face. You just want to look at her. And if she'd gone off and had Botox and facelifts, I wouldn't want to look at that face because it wouldn't express anything. — Judy Parfitt

Tango Quotes By Simone Elkeles

Daddy, What's the horizontal tango? — Simone Elkeles

Tango Quotes By Nina George

Tango Quotes By Astor Piazzolla

For me, tango was always for the ear rather than the feet. — Astor Piazzolla

Tango Quotes By Fred Hampton

In plain proletarian worker's language, it takes two to tango. — Fred Hampton

Tango Quotes By Jorge Luis Borges

The tango is a direct expression of something that poets have often tried to state in words: the belief that a fight may be a celebration. — Jorge Luis Borges

Tango Quotes By Cassandra Clare

Magnus, remember what happened the last time you tried to tango. Your shoe flew off and nearly killed someone."
"It was a metaphor. He's a Shadowhunter, he's a Lightwood, and he's into blonds. He's a dating hazard. — Cassandra Clare

Tango Quotes By Christine Wiltz

The tango, by 1914, had been officially declared immoral, and dancers went through its showy steps under threat of being dragged off the floor to jail unless light was visible between the partners and they refrained from doing any demoralizing dance steps, like "snake-wiggling" at the shoulders. — Christine Wiltz

Tango Quotes By Jodie Sweetin

I've always wanted to learn the Argentine tango. — Jodie Sweetin

Tango Quotes By Janny Scott

Tango is serious and takes discipline. It must be studied hard to be done well. It is elegant, formal, passionate and intimate. It is about power and vulnerability. It is both dance and metaphor. And to its captives becomes a magnificent obsession — Janny Scott

Tango Quotes By Sherman Alexie

If you really want a woman to love you, then you have to dance. And if you don't want to dance, then you're going to have to work extra hard to make a woman love you forever, and you will always run the risk that she will leave you at any second for a man who knows how to tango. — Sherman Alexie

Tango Quotes By Cindi Madsen

She glanced at the horse's stomach. "You got yourself knocked up, girl?"
"Actually, it takes two to tango, in case you haven't heard."
Sadie laughed, the happy noise filling the air. "Horse tango. Sounds like quite the show. — Cindi Madsen

Tango Quotes By Robert Duvall

The money part is one of the most difficult things. Coppola always said I should do a tango movie. If it hadn't been for him, I don't know where we would have gotten the money. — Robert Duvall

Tango Quotes By Joe Schreiber

I can't dance, remember?" I whispered.
"It's just a tango. It is like sex, except with clothes on." Then, squeezing me closer: "Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot, you do not know how to do that either. — Joe Schreiber

Tango Quotes By David Edelstein

As a critic, I try to stay neutral about movies before I see them, but I really wanted "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" to be great. It's based on a barbed memoir by Kim Barker called "The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan." And its stars Tina Fey, out of her comfort zone, just as Barker was a fish out of water when, in 2004, she began covering the Afghanistan occupation for the Chicago Tribune. — David Edelstein

Tango Quotes By Mariella Frostrup

When I last looked, there weren't queues of eager guys under 40 hanging outside single ladies' doors begging them to give up work and have their babies. It takes two to tango and the same number, without medical help, to make a child. — Mariella Frostrup

Tango Quotes By Jacklyn Zeman

I loved dancing the tango at the 1994 Nurses Ball Talent Show. I thought I'd be dancing with Brad Maule (Tony) but the writers revved up the passion by pairing me with Leigh McCloskey, my lover Damian. During dress rehearsal, for a goof, Leigh and Brad ran into each others arms instead! — Jacklyn Zeman

Tango Quotes By Lynne McTaggart

Our natural state of being is in relationship, a tango, a constant state of one influencing the other. Just as the subatomic particles that compose us cannot be separated from the space and particles surrounding them, so living beings cannot be isolated from each other ... By the act of observation and intention, we have the ability to extend a kind of super-radiance to the world. — Lynne McTaggart

Tango Quotes By Lesley Gore

I wouldn't go so far as to make 'You Don't Own Me' a tango or 'It's My Party' a hip-hop thing. Believe me, those things have been suggested to me. But I thought if I could stay true to the song, the arrangements would work. I'm really enjoying singing them. — Lesley Gore

Tango Quotes By David Edelstein

It's hard for comic actors used to pulling faces just to be on screen, but Tina Fey does a good job. I liked watching her. The part, though, isn't filled in. When Baker announces that she's gotten too used to the madness of Afghanistan, that she's worried she's thinking of it as normal, the sentiment comes out of nowhere. The dramatic arc in "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" is nonexistent. The movie evaporates in the mind like water in the Afghan desert. — David Edelstein

Tango Quotes By Erol Ozan

Dancing is creating a sculpture that is visible only for a moment. — Erol Ozan

Tango Quotes By Gilles Marini

I love to dance and perform the Argentine tango - it breathes love! — Gilles Marini

Tango Quotes By Simone Elkeles

Do you play football?' Brandon asks.
Brandon is on a roll and won't stop until he's found the answer he's looking for. 'Tennis?'
'That would be a nada'
'Then what sport do you play?'
Carlos puts down his food. Oh, no. He's got a rebellious gleam in his eye as he says, 'The horizontal tango.'
... Alex stands and says through chlenched teeth, 'Carlos let's talk. In private. Ahora.'
... Brandon turns to my dad with big, innocent eyes. 'Daddy, do you know how to do the horizontal tango? — Simone Elkeles

Tango Quotes By Yo-Yo Ma

The tango is really a combination of many cultures, though it eventually became the national music of Argentina. — Yo-Yo Ma

Tango Quotes By Katlego Kol-Kes

Every once in a while
I cut myself open
And your voices
Spill out dancing
A chopstick tangoKatlego Kol-Kes

Tango Quotes By Jennifer Comeaux

Our evening-long tango of stares had my head spinning. — Jennifer Comeaux

Tango Quotes By Kurt Vonnegut

As I spoke of another's love and looked into the wide, blue windows of her soul, a rich, insistent yearning flooded my senses.
TangoKurt Vonnegut

Tango Quotes By Sylvester Stallone

There might have been a period around 'Tango & Cash' when I was nearly fashionable. My problem is that my weight's always been changing for the movies I'm in. — Sylvester Stallone

Tango Quotes By Sarah Schulman

It takes two to tango isn't even true on the dance floor. One person can do a lot of evil all on his or her own. But the Theory of Mutual Blame arose sometime before Doc was even born. Perhaps it was a takeoff on Freud's seduction theory or the more generic practice of blaming victims for being alive. Its origins were unclear, but no one had ever had to take full responsibility for their own actions since. — Sarah Schulman

Tango Quotes By Michio Kaku

You might one day be able to send the experience of dancing the tango, bungee jumping, or skydiving to the people on your e-mail list. Not just physical activity, but emotions and feelings as well might be sent via brain-to-brain communication. — Michio Kaku

Tango Quotes By Bernardo Bertolucci

If you mention any ideological thing about shooting 'Last Tango in Paris,' I was thinking I was doing a political film. — Bernardo Bertolucci

Tango Quotes By Stephen Richards

Do not allow your sad past to rule your present situation. Unlike a tango, it does not take to two to forgive. — Stephen Richards

Tango Quotes By Juan Campodonico

I started buying records in the '80s. I listened to everything new wave, disco, funk synth-pop, rock, but in my house we were listening to bossa nova, tango, and folk. — Juan Campodonico

Tango Quotes By Robert Duvall

The beginning and the end of the tango is the walk. — Robert Duvall

Tango Quotes By Clive James

A man who wants to find out who he really is should try watching the woman he loves as she dances the tango with a maestro. — Clive James

Tango Quotes By P.G. Wodehouse

He was like some prophet of old, scourging the sins of the people. He leaped about in a frenzy of inspiration till I feared he would do himself an injury. Sometimes he expressed himself in a somewhat odd manner, but every word carried conviction. He showed me New York in its true colours. He showed me the vanity and wickedness of sitting in gilded haunts of vice, eating lobster when decent people should be in bed.
'He said that the tango and the fox-trot were devices of the devil to drag people down into the Bottomless Pit. He said that there was more sin in ten minutes with a negro banjo orchestra than in all the ancient revels of Nineveh and Babylon. And when he stood on one leg and pointed right at where I was sitting and shouted "This means you!" I could have sunk through the floor. — P.G. Wodehouse

Tango Quotes By Mikhail Baryshnikov

You cannot dance physically certain things. But look at tango dancers or flamenco or Japanese classical theater. You can, if you're smart enough and you collaborate with the right choreographers, you could really dance your age. — Mikhail Baryshnikov

Tango Quotes By Lauren Gilley

Tango, ever the gentleman, gave her a wink. I don't have anything in my blood but beer and poor white trash. Figure I gotta get in good with these leader types. — Lauren Gilley

Tango Quotes By Ruben Blades

I was never particularly a part of the following of tango; I just liked it ... most of all, I recognized that the urban content and the approach seemed very familiar and very connected to the songs that I was doing, the kind of songs that I wanted to write - the songs about the street. — Ruben Blades

Tango Quotes By John Green

It was the immutable tango between the Dumper and the Dumpee: the coming and the seeing and the conquering and the returning home. — John Green

Tango Quotes By Ruben Blades

There's something about the tango that brings even more emotion out of the lyrics. — Ruben Blades

Tango Quotes By Carlos Gavito

The secret of tango is in this moment of improvisation that happens between step and step. It is to make the impossible thing possible: to dance silence. — Carlos Gavito

Tango Quotes By Jamie Foxx

Will.i.am and I performed at Wango Tango. That's when my daughter said that I had made it in music. — Jamie Foxx

Tango Quotes By Fred Armisen

There are bands that I am friends with, who will invite me up on stage. Like Les Savy Fav, who have had me on stage, and I have played on their record. There are a couple of bands like that. Yo La Tango has invited me to play with them. — Fred Armisen

Tango Quotes By Kim Cormack

She awoke knowing what she had been dreaming about. She was a deer in the headlights to his grinning face. In those first moments before she was fully awakened she hadn't had time to hide her true feelings. He'd read them loud and clear. This was the moment that would start the seductive tango. There was one giant problem. Kayn could not dance her way out of a paper bag. — Kim Cormack

Tango Quotes By Jason Versey

It takes two to tango but just one dance with the devil to bring the house down. — Jason Versey

Tango Quotes By Malcolm X

It takes two to tango; when I go, you go. — Malcolm X

Tango Quotes By Eva Green

I was very, very nervous about the naked scenes. I'm very shy and reserved. But it was Bertolucci and I have seen Last Tango. It's not pornographic. He's a master of eroticism. I stopped being self-conscious. You have to forget everything. — Eva Green

Tango Quotes By Robert Duvall

When you dance tango fast, you have to think slow. — Robert Duvall

Tango Quotes By Kiersten White

-'I don't see what good it's going to do for you to waltz back in there and
-'Can I tango back in there, instead? So much sexier than the waltz. — Kiersten White

Tango Quotes By Carolina De Robertis

So that's all we're doingoing here now? Catering to the rich?'

'We'really here for the tango,' Santiago said. 'Our music will reach far more people because we'really here'

'And the workers? The tango came from us, it belongs to us! — Carolina De Robertis

Tango Quotes By Seanan McGuire

The Argentine tango isn't here to play nicely with the other children. The Argentine tango is here to seduce your women, spill things on your rug, and sneak out your bedroom window in the middle of the night. — Seanan McGuire

Tango Quotes By Marie Windsor

I had to do a tango with Raft and I learned to dance in ballet shoes with my knees bent. — Marie Windsor

Tango Quotes By Ramona Matta

I am no longer afraid to face what is meant to be, but I am not so sure of what exactly I want for the future either. — Ramona Matta

Tango Quotes By Astor Piazzolla

I still can't believe that some pseudocritics continue to accuse me of having murdered tango. They have it backward. They should look at me as the saviour of tango. I performed plastic surgery on it. — Astor Piazzolla

Tango Quotes By Lauren Gilley

Tango tipped his head back against the bench, staring up at the denim-colored evening sky. This was the most dangerous, the most wonderful, the most daring addiction of all: life. — Lauren Gilley

Tango Quotes By E.L. James

Unwrapping the paper carefully so it doesn't tear, I find a beautiful red leather box. Cartier. It's familiar, thanks to my second-chance earrings and my watch. Cautiously, I open the box to discover a delicate charm bracelet of silver or platinum or white gold - I don't know, but it's absolutely enchanting. Attached to it are several charms: the Eiffel Tower; a London black cab; a helicopter - Charlie Tango; a glider - the soaring, a catamaran - The Grace; a bed; and an ice cream cone? I look up at him, bemused. "Vanilla?" He shrugs apologetically( ... ) — E.L. James

Tango Quotes By Ramona Matta

I gathered myself in silent pain looking to leave the one way path I was never to come back to — Ramona Matta

Tango Quotes By Allie Burke

It takes two to tango, and if you dance too long, implosion is inevitable. — Allie Burke

Tango Quotes By Katie MacAlister

An interesting parade of expressions passed across Drake's face.

I ran across the floor to him, putting my hands on his chest as I leaned into him. "Trust goes both ways, Drake. You have to learn to trust that I know what I'm doing."

"It's not your abilities I doubt," he said slowly, his eyes dark. "It is not easy to let you go in this manner."

"I know it's not. But it'll get easier. OK?"

The anger on his face faded into annoyance, which did a brief tango with stubbornness, and finally morphed into resignation.

I gave him a swift kiss. "That was a hell of a battle you fought, but I appreciate your faith in me."

"I have always had faith in you, kincsem. It is all others I distrust. — Katie MacAlister

Tango Quotes By Manuel Puig

I am only interested in bad taste if I can enjoy a gruesome tango or watch a movie that makes me cry. — Manuel Puig

Tango Quotes By Sanjo Jendayi

Sex has changed drastically over the years due to technology. The World Wide Web has boosted the sex market and made sex ever present. No one has to work hard anymore with sexting, Tango, Skype, and all the other ways you can initiate sex without ever even suckling on my damn nipple! — Sanjo Jendayi

Tango Quotes By Gustavo Santaolalla

As a professional, as a person, and as a player, I think he's fantastic. It's like he's dancing the tango. I just love how he plays football so elegantly. To me, Andres is Don Andres. — Dani Alves

Tango Quotes By Nina George

Tango is a truth drug. It lays bare your problems and your complexes, but also the strengths you hide from others so as not to vex them. It shows what a couple can be for each other, how they can listen to each other. People who only want to listen to themselves will hate tango. — Nina George

Tango Quotes By Lee DeBourg

There's too much psychology in the world.
People should live by the Golden Rule. And dance the Tango. Passion is good. — Lee DeBourg

Tango Quotes By Carlos Gavito

I think those who say that you can't tango if you are not Argentine are mistaken. Tango was an immigrant music ... so it does not have a nationality. It's only passport is feeling. — Carlos Gavito

Tango Quotes By Bernardo Bertolucci

I wanted to have a reaction from the audience. I wanted to be able to talk to somebody, and not be talking just to myself. That's when I did 'The Conformist,' 'Last Tango in Paris,' etc. And I found it was incredibly rewarding, something new. — Bernardo Bertolucci

Tango Quotes By Ophelia London

Slow-slow-quick-quick-slow went her heart.
"Damn, I love the tango," he whispered, tickling her ear. — Ophelia London

Tango Quotes By Olaotan Fawehinmi

It takes two to tango; one dictates the steps and the other executes them effectively. That is how a great show is made. — Olaotan Fawehinmi
