Madonna: Martha Graham Passage for Ellen

Madonna also sent Ellen the following passage from Martha Graham:

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open… No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”


Ellen said it meant the world to her. Madonna said it is best sometimes to separate the reality from the noise and she told Ellen her favorite quote from the film she directed, W.E., is “They can only hurt you if you let them.”
