Body Quotes

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.


Tattoos are cool because they dont belong on your body, but you put it there to say something about yourself. Much like my rolls of fat. That shit does not belong on a human body. And I put it there to say something about me. I dont like fruit. I dont like it! Long bike ride? Im out. Hot dog eating contest? Im listening.

Dave Attell

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

I wonder at those who think about their body's food, but do not think about their soul's food. They keep away disturbing food from their belly, but fill up their hearts with destructive subjects.

Hasan ibn Al

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

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.


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


A healthy body is a guest chamber for the soul: a sick body is a prison.

Francis Bacon

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

William Wordsworth

This body is not a home but an inn, and that only briefly.


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