Quotations about body

Henry David ThoreauA gun gives you the body, not the bird.

 - Henry David Thoreau

Mahatma GandhiYou can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.

 - Mahatma Gandhi

Douglas MacArthurAge wrinkles the body; quitting wrinkles the soul.

 - Douglas MacArthur

BuddhaAn insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.

 - Gautama Buddha

Francis QuarlesIn thy apparel avoid singularity, profuseness, and gaudiness. Be not too early in the fashion, nor too late. Decency is half way between affectation and neglect. The body is the shell of the soul, apparel is the husk of that shell; the husk often tells you what the kernel is.

 - Francis Quarles

Florence NightingalePeople say the effect is only on the mind. It is no such thing. The effect is on the body, too. Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by colour, and light, we do know this, that they have an actual physical effect. Variety of form and brilliancy of colour in the objects presented to patients, are actual means of recovery.

 - Florence Nightingale
