BODY
[ Also see Anatomy Breasts Countenance Head Health Heart Intellect Mind Mortality Skin Soul Spirit Stomach ]

God made the human body, and it is by far the most exquisite and wonderful organization which has come to us from the Divine hand. It is a study for one's whole life. If an undevout astronomer is mad, an undevout physiologist is still madder.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
      - Bible, I Corinthians (ch. VI, v. 19)

These limbs,--whence had we them, this stormy force; this life-blood, with its burning passion? They are dust and shadow--a shadow system gathered round our me; wherein through some moments or years, the divine essence is to be revealed in the flesh.
      - Thomas Carlyle

I kill myself for my body.
      - Cher

Nudity is a deep worry if you have a body like a bin bag full of yoghurt, which I have.
      - Stephen Fry, in the London "Observer"

The body never lies.
      - Martha Graham

Our body is a well-set clock, which keeps good time, but if it be too much or indiscreetly tampered with, the alarm runs out before the hour.
      - Joseph Hall

The body is the soul's poor house or home, whose ribs the laths are and whose flesh the loam.
      - Robert Herrick

The abdomen is the reason why man does not easily take himself for a god.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

I stand in awe of my body, this matter to which I am bound has become so strange to me. I fear not spirits, ghosts, of which I am one,--that my body might,--but I fear bodies, I tremble to meet them. What is this Titan that has possession of me? Talk of mysteries! Think of our life in nature,--daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it,--rocks, trees, wind on our cheek! the solid earth! the actual world! the common sense! Contact! Contact! Who are we?
      - Henry David Thoreau, The Maine Woods,
        Ktaadn

If any thing is sacred the human body is sacred.
      - Walt Whitman
