one of my very aesthetic friends observes- the Dying Swan- how could the ethereal fragile Anna Pavlova have been missed from a Devastating Beauty List?
"If I can't dance then I'd rather be dead."
"Play the last measure very softly."
"Get my costume ready"
quotations reflect Pavlova's words-
1st quote upon finding she would require surgery for pleurisy-and she would be unable to dance again.
2 & 3 her dying words
