Quotes: Dances and Balls
Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they're held for pleasure
They're the balls that I like best
ACDC, "Big Balls"

Even adults, I fancy, would not find an evening party very endurable without the attraction of sex and the attraction of alcohol; and how a small boy who can neither flirt nor drink should be expected to enjoy prancing about on a polished floor till the small hours of the morning is beyond my conception.
C. S. Lewis, Surprised By Joy

"High class, too. Wouldn't let me in there.... Of course, you couldn't buy an invite with a diamond the size of a testicle, but I got my hands on a couple."
Badger, Firefly

By the end of the night, according to the count Nora could be heard shouting, four new couples had formed and there'd been six breakups that would make the next several weeks awkward.
— The RWBY fic Dance
