The dancers inherit the party
Love this poem by Scottish poet Ian Hamilton Finlay

I'm sure any tango dancer would agree with this sentiment!

The Dancers Inherit the Party

When I have talked for an hour I feel lousy -
Not so when I have danced for an hour:
The dancers inherit the party
While the talkers wear themselves out and
sit in corners alone and glower.
