Thread Name: BS: who? vertical/perpendicular expression?
Subject: RE: BS: who? vertical/perpendicular expression?
According to the "Oxford Dictionary of Humorous Quotations Third Edition", Compiled by Ned Sherrin, published in 2005, "[Dancing is] a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire." is attributed to George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) in "New Statesman 23 March 1962".
Note that this citation is after his death so take it FWIW.
