 :: 10 Quotes of the Moment

Quotation Bullet

He had not an ounce of superfluous flesh on his bones, and leanness goes a great way towards gentility.
~ Elizabeth Gaskell - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

I don't think that the flesh is necessarily treacherous, evil, bad. It is cantankerous, and it is independent. The idea of independence is the key. It really is like colonialism. The colonies suddenly decide that they can and should exist with their own personality and should detach from the control of the mother country. At first the colony is perceived as being treacherous. It's a betrayal. Ultimately, it can be seen as the separation of a partner that could be very valuable as an equal rather than as something you dominate.
~ David Cronenberg - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

I live in company with a body, a silent companion, exacting and eternal. He it is who notes that individuality which is the seal of the weakness of our race. My soul has wings, but the brutal jailer is strict.
~ EugFne Delacroix - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

It is a sign of a dull nature to occupy oneself deeply in matters that concern the body; for instance, to be over much occupied about exercise, about eating and drinking, about easing oneself, about sexual intercourse.
~ Epictetus - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

It is so much more difficult to live with one's body than with one's soul. One's body is so much more exacting: what it won't have it won't have, and nothing can make bitter into sweet.
~ D. H. Lawrence - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

It takes more than just a good looking body. You've got to have the heart and soul to go with it.
~ Lee Haney - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

Let me look at the foulness and ugliness of my body. Let me see myself as an ulcerous sore running with every horrible and disgusting poison.
~ St. Ignatius Loyola - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

Man is a mind betrayed, not served, by his organs.
~ Edmond and Jules De Goncourt - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

Many people treat their bodies as if they were rented from Hertz-something they are using to get around in but nothing they genuinely care about understanding.
~ Chungliang Al Huang - [Body]

Quotation Bullet

Many things about our bodies would not seem to us so filthy and obscene if we did not have the idea of nobility in our heads.
~ Georg C. Lichtenberg - [Body]
