Petra Nemcova Quotes
- I love to dance. I can dance for, like, four or five hours nonstop without even drinking water. Its a beautiful, beautiful thing.
- (On the tsunami experience): Ive learned a couple of things. And one of the things I have learned is that every experience has pluses and minuses. If we focus on the minuses, we go down the spiral. But if we are able to focus on the pluses, we can become stronger and put more meaning into our life. So, we have choice, and sometimes it seems very hard, but the best way to heal physically or emotionally is to keep positive.
