Body Quotes

When one begins to work in order to bestow, and this goes against ones nature, this is called "toil," since the body (refers to ones wills and desires) opposes it, being that any movement which the body does not see that it will be use for itself, it opposes with all of its strength, and tremendous powers are needed to overcome it.

Baruch Shalom Ashlag

The body has to be utilized for service to others. More bliss can be got from serving others than from merely serving oneself.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Your emotions affect every cell in your body. Mind and body, mental and physical, are intertwined.

Thomas Tutko

Gluttony is the source of all our infirmities and the fountain of all our diseases. As fire extinguished by an excess of fuel, so is the natural health of the body destroyed by an intemperate diet.

Burton

As person abandons worn-out clothes and acquires new ones, so when the body is worn out a new one is acquired by the Self, who lives within.

Bhagavad Gita

True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.

Wilhelm von Humboldt

The right of conscience and private judgment is unalienable, and it is truly the interest of all mankind to unite themselves into one body for the liberty, free exercise, and unmolested enjoyment of this right.

Ezra Stiles

If people have personal conversations about very emotional matters in public, and people reveal parts of their body that were originally kept covered, and pornography is becoming semi-respectable, it makes you think the push for greater freedom and divesting yourself of inhibitions is a real human need. I'm 54, so I'm further back upon the road. We certainly did a fair amount of divesting ourselves of inhibitions, but there seems to have been a quantum leap in the last half a generation. Maybe we're destined to be freer, but it's taking odd forms, like showing your big gut to all the world and discussing the future of your marriage at a bus stop with 30 people listening in.

Martin Amis

It is a fascinating and provocative thought that a body of water deserves to be considered as an organism in its own right.

Lyall Watson

There has been a lot said about the sacredness of our land which is our body; and the values of our culture which is our soul; but water is the blood of our tribes, and if its life-giving flow is stopped, or it is polluted, all else will die and the many thousands of years of our communal existence will come to an end.

Frank Tenorio

He who loves the world as his body may be entrusted with the empire.

Lao-tzu

To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.

Buddha

From the body of one guilty deed a thousand ghostly fears and haunting thoughts proceed.

William Wordsworth

A body of water occupying two-thirds of a world made for man - who has no gills.

Ambrose Bierce

You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.

C. S. Lewis

The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.

Anthony Robbins

It is not about weight, it is about fitness, and one component of being fit is to have relatively low body fat, because fat is not very efficient, whereas muscle is.

Deborah Bull

It is the mind that makes the body.

Sojourner Truth

Your body is the church where Nature asks to be reverenced.

Marquis de Sade

I did not want to be a tree, a flower or a wave. In a dancer's body, we as audience must see ourselves, not the imitated behavior of everyday actions, not the phenomenon of nature, not exotic creatures from another planet, but something of the miracle that is a human being.

Martha Graham

I did not want to be a tree, a flower or a wave. In a dancer's body, we as audience must see ourselves, not the imitated behavior of everyday actions, not the phenomenon of nature, not exotic creatures from another planet, but something of a miracle.

Martha Graham

The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve-center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.

D. H. Lawrence

Buddha means awareness, the awareness of body and mind that prevents evil from arising in either.

Bodhidharma

He placed the soul in the body which He had fashioned. He protects the Creation which He has created. With their eyes, they see, and with their tongues, they speak; with their ears, they bring the mind to awareness. With their feet, they walk, and with their hands, they work; they wear and eat whatever is given.
