There’s no doubt in my mind that if he were alive today at 85, Ricardo would be going to the milongas every night in Buenos Aires to dance, enjoy the music, and be with friends. It’s sad that he wasn’t appreciated more for what he gave when he was alive, but we have his words and his dancing recorded. Today so many wish they had met Ricardo and had the opportunity to learn from him.
“I think feelings are unique, it’s like a fingerprint. Nobody can teach you feeling, people who dance the tango, they are thousands. People who feel the tango, we are very few.”
“This is not a poker game. So do the best you can, do it with honesty and I think you are going to die peacefully, and that’s important. Because you need to die to be part of what you are going to leave behind as energy in the world.”
