“I need human feelings to fit garments. I couldn’t do it just, like, on an object – it’s too close to our body. It’s like a skin you are making, so you need one’s feelings to make a garment.”

― Ann Demeulemeester

“Dead bodies do get a grayish blue/purple hue because blood pools in the capillaries and the body starts to decompose. It’s not smurf blue, but it’s not a pleasant shade.”

“Kids’ brains are developing. Their heads are a larger part of their body, and their necks are not as strong as adults’ necks. So kids may be at a greater risk of head and brain injuries than adults.”

― Anna Gunn

“Just because your body is losing inches doesn’t mean you’re losing weight or vice versa. It’s not about the weight: it’s about building lean muscle, which is going to increase your metabolism and then allow you to lose weight quicker.”

― Anna Kaiser

“Veggies and fruit are known to harbor bacteria, and so your body naturally wants to avoid them. I used to beat myself up about trying to get enough fresh food and protein like I did before getting pregnant. But then I resigned myself to the fact that my body is going to crave what it needs.”

― Anna Kaiser

“Your core is the center of your entire body – everything else is an extension – so you want to make sure you’re strong in your entire core and not just part of it.”

“People send you stuff if you say you’re interested in something. I have a tonne of body lotion. So I could mention I was interested in, you know, surfing, and some company would send me a surfboard.”

― Anna Kendrick

“Well, the years from 10 to 20, when your body, mind and everything is like changing every five minutes, can be pretty torturing. And most of the interesting characters, I think, are somewhat tortured or torturous. I’m 20 now, so I’m only just an adult.”

― Anna Paquin

“So much of what makes a room great is how you enter and circulate through it, how it addresses the body.”

― Annie Besant

“The mental body, like the astral, varies much in different people; it is composed of coarser or of finer matter, according to the needs of the more or less unfolded consciousness connected with it. In the educated it is active and well-defined; in the undeveloped it is cloudy and inchoate.”

― Annie Besant

“The body is never more alive than when it is dead; but it is alive in its units, and dead in its totality; alive as a congeries, dead as an organism.”

― Annie Besant

“Premonitions, presentiments, the sensing of unseen presences and many allied experiences are due to the activity of the astral body and its reaction on the physical; their ever-increasing frequency is merely the result of its evolution among educated people.”

― Annie Besant

“The human body is constantly undergoing a process of decay and of reconstruction. First builded into the astral form in the womb of the mother, it is built up continually by the insetting of fresh materials. With every moment tiny molecules are passing away from it; with every moment tiny molecules are streaming into it.”

― Annie Besant

“Science regards man as an aggregation of atoms temporarily united by a mysterious force called the life-principle. To the materialist, the only difference between a living and a dead body is that in the one case that force is active, in the other latent.”

― Annie Besant

“When a patient does get an organ from another person, it comes from a different body. It has different properties, and a person’s natural tendency is to reject that organ.”

“The immune system’s goal is to protect the body against invaders either from without, such as microbes, or from within, such as cancers and different types of neoplastic transformation.”

― Anthony Fauci

“The body’s immune system is like any other system of the body. Each of them have their vital function for the human host.”

“If any person examines by the microscope that part towards the extremity of the spider’s body from whence its thread proceeds, he will observe the spot to be, as it were, surrounded by five several protuberances or risings, each ending in a point and altogether forming a kind of enclosure.”

― Antonie van Leeuwenhoek

“I now found that the spider cannot fix its thread to anything without imprinting the hind part of its body on the place, by which pressure it emits an incredible number of excessively small threads diverging in every direction from whence we may conclude that as soon as the threads are exposed to the air, they lose their viscosity or gluey quality.”

― Antonie van Leeuwenhoek

“At the end of every year, I always get a blood test to see what’s on the inside of my body. You’ve got to see what you put into your body, not just care about the outside of your body – make sure you get in all the supplements and all the protein and all the carbs and the low cholesterol.”

― Antonio Brown

“Interestingly enough, not all feelings result from the body’s reaction to external stimuli. Sometimes changes are purely simulated in the brain maps.”

― Antonio Damasio

“Consciousness, much like our feelings, is based on a representation of the body and how it changes when reacting to certain stimuli. Self-image would be unthinkable without this representation.”

― Antonio Damasio

“To me, body and mind are different aspects of specific biological processes.”

― Antony Gormley

“I would say that the whole way that I have approached the body is as a space, not a thing – not an object to be improved, idealised or whatever, but simply to be dwelt in.”

― Antony Gormley

“’6 Times’ is an attempt to reinvestigate the social responsibility of sculpture. The body in question is a particular body, but it doesn’t really matter whose it is.”

― Antony Gormley

“My body can’t demonstrate. It isn’t willing to explore movements the way it used to. I’ve always had to find the movement in myself then show it in myself. If I’ve got the sense of movement for the character, I expect the dancer to get it too.”

― Antony Tudor

“It’s important that you love and respect your body, understand what it needs, and accordingly give everything in appropriate proportion.”

“Lara Croft is completely different; the way she does the action scenes and maintains her body in perfect condition… I can’t compete with her in any way.”

― Anushka Shetty

“When I shake someone’s hand, I apply the lightest pressure on their wrist with my index and middle fingers and lead them across my body to my left. The cross-body lead is actually a move from salsa dancing. I’m finding out what kind of a partner they’re going to be, and I know that if they follow my lead, I can do whatever I want with them.”

― Apollo Robbins

“A woman’s body should be stronger than the environment. Strong enough to overpower the negative elements, especially in cities like New York and Los Angeles.”

“I’ve stated my position, and that is that we do not need a contraption to play the game of golf. I would hope that we’d play under one set of rules, and those rules would include a ban on the long putter hooked to the body in some way, shape or form.”

“What’s very interesting is that when we look at human bodies, we look at our body as a singular entity when it turns out, no, if I could reduce us to a small size as the size of a cell and put you inside your body, rather than seeing a singular entity, what you would see is a metropolis with 50 trillion citizens.”

― Caitlin Doughty

“Because we’ve never encountered a decomposing body, we can only assume they are out to get us. It is no wonder there is a cultural fascination with zombies.”

― Caitlin Doughty

“Vaults and caskets are not the law; they are the policy of individual cemeteries. Vaults prevent the settling of the dirt around the body, thus making landscaping more uniform and cost effective. As an added bonus, vaults can be customized and sold at a markup. Faux marble? Bronze? Take your pick, family.”

“Cutting sugar made the most difference to my body. It’s the devil. It’s addictive, and it’s in so many things you wouldn’t even think of. Sugar is put in sauces, breads, and yoghurts. It’s not always obvious, but so many things are packed in sugar.”

“Anorexia is a response to cultural images of the female body – waiflike, angular – that both capitulates to the ideal and also mocks it, strips away all the ancillary signs of sexuality, strips away breasts and hips and butt and leaves in their place a garish caricature, a cruel cartoon of flesh and bone.”

― Caroline Knapp

“Mastery over the body – its impulses, its needs, its size – is paramount; to lose control is to risk beauty, and to risk beauty is to risk desirability, and to risk desirability is to risk entitlement to sexuality and love and self-esteem.”

― Caterina Scorsone

“I began dancing when I was 7 years old. I was told that I had the perfect ballet dancer’s body and had these crazy high arches in my feet that resulted in an amazing point.

― Charlie Ebersol

“It is now an article of absolute faith among Republicans that ‘the government’ is an entity separate from ‘the American people,’ which they say the same way that the old Jesuits talked about ‘the mystical Body of Christ.’ It is now an ironclad commandment of conservative orthodoxy that ‘the government’ is something parasitic and alien.”

“There’s a gender in your brain and a gender in your body. For 99 percent of people, those things are in alignment. For transgender people, they’re mismatched. That’s all it is. It’s not complicated, it’s not a neurosis. It’s a mix-up. It’s a birth defect, like a cleft palate.”

“When you sketch a shoe but don’t have the intention to do a proper shoe, it remains a curvy sketch with no detail. The shoe completely morphs to the body.”

― Christian Louboutin

“If the height of the heel is the same as the length of your foot, it starts to look wrong. And if the heel is positioned badly on the sole, you get into ballerina territory, where the body is pushed into a very strange posture. You can exaggerate the arch only so much.”

“I’ve been through my highs, I’ve been through my lows; I’ve been through the gamut of all things in this business. Being too thin. Being bigger. I’ve been criticized for being on both sides of the scale. It’s noise I block out automatically. I love my body.”

― Claudia Gray

“As African-Americans, that’s what’s being played fast and loose with, our citizenship. When you have the Trayvon Martins and the Michael Browns being shot and killed, it’s because, on a certain level, there is a kind of mutability in the understanding of citizenship around the black body.”

― Cobie Smulders

“I still don’t find myself a very confident person about my looks or my body.”

So to play sports, I put it in a backpack.”

“Not everything that lowers HDL is bad for you. If you change from a high-fat, high-cholesterol diet to a healthy low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, your HDL levels may stay the same or even decrease because there is less need for it. When you have less garbage, you need fewer garbage trucks to remove it, so your body may make less HDL.”

“The wrap dress is the most traditional form of dressing: It’s like a robe, it’s like a kimono, it’s like a toga. It doesn’t have buttons or zippers. What made it different was that it was jersey; therefore, it was close to the body and it was a print.”

“Action choreographer is like talking. When you talk, you have a rhythm. When you act, you have a rhythm. When you’re moving your body, you have a rhythm. So as an actor, as a choreographer, the objective is trying to blend everything in – into – ultimately back into that character.”

― George Gallup

“The self has the characteristic that it is an object to itself, and that characteristic distinguishes it from other objects and from the body.”

― George Herbert Mead

“What dinosaur traits are missing from an ostrich? The ostrich has a toothless beak, but there are mutations that cause teeth and claws to come back to their mouth and limbs. You need to replace the feathers with scales, but there are no feathers on their legs and feet, so you just need to make its whole body like its legs are.”

― George M. Church

“You should have personalized genomics, personalized physiology, personalized medicine, where each person’s different, and each body is an integrated whole.”

― George M. Church

“Every cell in our body, whether it’s a bacterial cell or a human cell, has a genome. You can extract that genome – it’s kind of like a linear tape – and you can read it by a variety of methods. Similarly, like a string of letters that you can read, you can also change it. You can write, you can edit it, and then you can put it back in the cell.”

― George M. Church

“If you get a personal genome, you should be able to get personal cell lines, stem cell derived from your adult tissues, that allow you to bring together synthetic biology and the sequencing so that you can repair parts of your body as you age or repair things that were inherited disorders.”

― George M. Church

“The more I work with the body, keeping my assumptions in a temporary state of reservation, the more I appreciate and sympathize with a given disease. The body no longer appears as a sick or irrational demon, but as a process with its own inner logic and wisdom.”

“There is nothing the body suffers the soul may not profit by.”

― George Meredith

“I’ve written a whole body of work that I’m incredibly proud of.”

“Our body is the temple of our spirit.”

― George W. Romney

“Mehmet Ertegun died in 1944. President Roosevelt sent his body back to Turkey on the U.S.S. Missouri. Mehmet Ertegun and President Roosevelt had had a cordial relationship, and, indeed, Mehmet Ertegun may have helped insure that Turkey did not ally itself with Germany, as it had in the First World War.”

― George W. S. Trow

“When I was asked to play ‘Miss Marple,’ I was given the Kevin Elyot script for ‘The Body in the Library.’ I was a fan of his theatre work anyway, and I just thought it was brilliant. I was immediately taken by ‘Miss Marple,’ so I read some of the novels, and I knew I had to do it.”

― Geri Halliwell

“Yoga has trimmed my body in a way that the gym never could. I used to be a gym rat, but I switched to yoga and am now almost 10 pounds lighter. One important thing I’ve gotten from yoga is breathing. When I’m cooking, the top part of my body collapses down. It cuts off my diaphragm.”

“I like the body. I like to design everything to do with the body.”

― Gianni Versace

“You can never come back fresher after the all-star break. I always try to do what I do, try to take care of my body, get some weights in, feel a little bit stronger and ready to push through 25 games.”

― Giannis Antetokounmpo

“I can eat healthy when I want to, and I can work out every single day, and I can have the body for a certain runway show if I need to, but that doesn’t mean that I’m doing it in an unhealthy way.”

― Gigi Hadid

“I went to almost all of the agencies in New York when I first visited. A lot of them wanted to sign me but also kind of indirectly were telling me that I needed to change in some way. Some directly told me that I wouldn’t be a model unless I changed the way that my body looked.”

― Gigi Hadid

“My thighs were huge; they were like rock! Growing up, I was really athletic, and I had a very athletic body.”

― Gigi Hadid

“I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high fashion before, and I’m very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion; this is art. It can never stay the same. It’s 2015.”

― Gigi Hadid

“The trouble with always trying to preserve the health of the body is that it is so difficult to do without destroying the health of the mind.”

― Gilbert K. Chesterton

“Be careful in dealing with a man who cares nothing for comfort or promotion, but is simply determined to do what he believes to be right. He is a dangerous uncomfortable enemy, because his body, which you can always conquer, gives you little purchase upon his soul.”

― Gina Carano

“I don’t have a supermodel body. I’m always trying to hide something.”

― Ginger Rogers

“I can safely say that other than macaroni and cheese, there’s no processed food in my life. There’s no inorganic food in my life these days. There’s no junk food. There’s not a lot of sugar. There’s no soy. I mean, really everything that’s going into my body is pretty pure.”

― Ginnifer Goodwin

“I’ve never had body issues, I’ve never had an eating disorder. I’ve never had to go on a diet and that’s because of Weight Watchers.”

― Ginnifer Goodwin

“The soul, in its power, is present in some way in the entire universe, because it apprehends substances which are not included in the body in which it lives, although they are related to it.”

― Giordano Bruno

“The whole soul is in the whole body, in the bones and in the veins and in the heart; it is no more present in one part than in another, and it is no less present in one part than in the whole, nor in the whole less than in one part.”

― Giordano Bruno

“Although one soul lives in the whole body, and all the body’s members are controlled by one soul, still the whole body and the whole soul and the parts of the universe are vivified by a certain total spirit.”

― Giordano Bruno

“When I was a teenager, I was fat. I was shy. I wore glasses. I had a big eyebrow and hair all over my body. They were years of torture.”

― Gloria Estefan

“Touring is hard. It’s really hard on the singer, especially, because your body is your instrument and you have to be so good, it’s like boot camp out there; I can’t do anything – just sleep, sing and be very healthy.”

― Gloria Estefan

“Your body is the direct result of what you eat as well as what you don’t eat.”

― Gloria Swanson

“My mom told me, ‘Make sure you do everything you want to do before you have kids.’ So that’s what I was doing. But biologically, the body is just like, ‘Well, you should have done it.’”

“Some time ago, I investigated the possibility that a computer might be able to reconstruct a picture from sets of very accurate X-ray measurements taken through the body at a multitude of different angles.”

― Godfrey Hounsfield

“During the development of the whole-body CT scanner, it became clear that the availability of an accurate cross-sectional picture of the body, the CT ‘slice,’ would have an important effect on the precision and implementation of radiotherapy treatment planning.”

― Godfrey Hounsfield

“A body smiles, like, 72 times a day. Where does that smile go? That’s what I want to know.”

― Goldie Hawn

“My eyes are too big, my nose is too flat, my ears stick out, my mouth is too big and my face is too small… my body is thin as a clarinet and my ankles are so skinny that I wear two pairs of bobby socks because I don’t want people to see how thin they are.”

“People kept asking, ‘What’s your market?’ I’ve got no idea at all other than me, an eleven year old kid in a 56-year-old body. But there are a lot of us out there.”

― Graeme Base

“Every Monday, we’re asked to undertake jump tests to check the conditions of our muscles. There’s nothing you can hide. Once a week, they do urine tests, and your body fat percentage is tested regularly. The doctors cover all bases.”

― Granit Xhaka

“People don’t realize the amount of stress you put on your body both physically and mentally from just the wear and tear of a season.”

“Wellness is not a ‘medical fix’ but a way of living – a lifestyle sensitive and responsive to all the dimensions of body, mind, and spirit, an approach to life we each design to achieve our highest potential for well-being now and forever.”

― Greg Anderson

“Wellness seeks more than the absence of illness; it searches for new levels of excellence. Beyond any disease-free neutral point, wellness dedicates its efforts to our total well-being – in body, mind, and spirit.”

― Greg Anderson

“I’m 6ft 8in, so I feel like I’ve got full body thrombosis about five hours in if I’m flying in economy.”

― Greg Davies

“Kissinger’s unusually high body count and singular moral imperiousness has the effect, among his critics, of obscuring his didactic utility. An outsized personality who has committed outsized mayhem, Kissinger eclipses his own context. Yet, as animals were to the anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss, Kissinger is good to think with.”

― Greg Grandin

“If you can have a skewed sense of your body, it stands to reason you could develop the same kind of thing about your relationships with others in a social network.”

― Greg Gutfeld

“I’m a terrible procrastinator. When we go to the airport, if they’re not literally closing the door behind my sweaty, hyperventilating body, I feel I’ve been there too long.”

― Greg Kinnear

“I daydream just like everybody else. I just do it with my body facing the field, so everybody thinks I’m paying attention.”

― Greg Maddux

“My doctor asked me how many golf balls I had hit in my career. I’m lying there in bed calculating somewhere between four and five million golf balls I had hit to do that on my body.”

“I’ve got an old body.”

― Greg Oden

“I’m going to try to jump over people, and I’m going to try to run all day. If my body lets me, I’ll do it.”

― Greg Oden

“It’s frustrating that my body can’t do what my mind wants it to do sometimes. But worrying or complaining about it isn’t going to fix anything.”

― Greg Oden

“There’s definitely football in the blood, but my body made my decision for me that I was going to be an Olympic athlete instead.”

― Grizz Chapman

“I like to choose things that fit my body for sure; you learn to find the things that complement your shape.”

― Gugu Mbatha-Raw

“I like the collarbone, a very clean collarbone. I think there’s something also very delicate and balletic about that part of a woman’s body, and I’m not really a cleavage person, but I do like a back or a shoulder; I think there’s something very alluring about backless dresses.”

― Gugu Mbatha-Raw

“There are 800 some muscles, 200 some bones. Your body works in three planes of motion: arms, legs – pentadactyl limbs. That’s what we’re working with.”

― Gunnar Peterson

“I would love to eat my body weight in chocolate chip cookies, french fries, and peanut butter, but I don’t. I choose not to. That’s on me, just like it’s on me if I choose to do it.”

― Gunnar Peterson

“Try training on an empty stomach, if it is just this kind of resistance training workout, so that your body fat is sacrificed as a fuel source. Then, immediately post-workout, make sure you take in all three of your macronutrients.”

― Gunnar Peterson

“I have nothing against tricep kickbacks, but I’d rather have you do a skater’s lunge with a kickback and get a lower body workout.”

― Gunnar Peterson

“Multi-joint movements – squats, push-ups, bent over rows – all put a greater metabolic demand on the body and can be effective when performed with very light weight to get you back up and running. Think bigger movements, not bigger weight, when you are on the mend.”

― Gunnar Peterson

“I have felt so insecure about my body at times. I’ve been on every end of the spectrum. I felt like I was too skinny and wished I could be muscular. I’ve felt like I was chubby and wanted to be skinny. I think everybody suffers from body image issues. I might exude confidence sometimes, but I’m pretty insecure.”

― Gus Kenworthy

“I’m putting in the time to make sure that my body is ready to compete at the top level.”

― Gus Kenworthy

“Within us – the heart of us, really – is a ‘ground’ that is to our thoughts and feelings, our relationships with others and ourselves, as is the Earth to the leaves that first race across her and then, no longer able to run, give themselves up to nourish her body so that she may give birth again come the spring.”

“If your body is damaged, wounded, it can be fixed, but if inside, mentally, you are wounded you cannot fix it, it’s hard.”

― Haile Gebrselassie

“In China, I had my body lit on fire. And in Russia, I took a bath in reindeer blood, which apparently had some kind of youth-enhancing elements.”

― Hailey Gates

“The Congo is so fun. The ideal body type coveted by women in the Congo is this extremely curvaceous body. They’re going through a number of extreme measures to get that kind of body form, and one of them is by using bouillon cubes.”

― Hailey Gates

“Feeling tired should almost never be an excuse, because your body has huge reserves of energy. But if you eat badly, stay out late, drink too much, and so on, you’ll pay a price on the course.”

― Hale Irwin

“I can forgive the body breaking down. It’s a little tougher to forgive that mental lapse.”

― Hale Irwin

“I’m covered up, but I’m still getting these comments that say I shouldn’t be. But the girls who wear the bikinis, they’re being told they’re too revealing! Enough. It’s their body, their choice.”

― Halima Aden

“I’m not the girl for superhigh fashion because I don’t have the right body.”

― Halle Berry

“I’m not the girl for super high fashion because I don’t have the right body. When I want to get dressed up, I’m a Roberto Cavalli girl.”

― Halle Berry

“You want to throw yourself in as many uncomfortable places as possible, if you want to build muscles in uncomfortable parts of your body and grow as an artist.”

― Hamish Linklater

“I see the most change in my body through exercise. They say diet determines your weight, and exercise determines your shape – I find that to be a pretty true statement. When I’m doing a lot of boxing, my hamstrings are really strong and my biceps. When I’m doing a lot of Pilates, I find that my core is really lean and my inner thighs.”

― Hannah Bronfman

“It is very important to moisturize your body! Your skin has a better glow when it’s hydrated.”

― Hannah Bronfman

“Girls are so in their head about their body image. It doesn’t matter how confident you are – it’s hormones!”

― Hannah Bronfman

“I believe that what I am putting into my body is just as important as what I am putting on my body.”

― Hannah Bronfman

“When you really listen to what your body is telling you, it’s easy to treat it well. For example, if my fingernails are weak, I know I need more calcium. If I have dry skin, I’m dehydrated or need to exfoliate.”

― Hannah Bronfman

“Every body about me seem’d happy but every body seem’d in a hurry to be happy somewhere else.”

― Hannah Cowley

“Every burn on my body has had its own different personality. And all of them needed different things.”

“Being a woman means that my male privilege seeped out of my body.”

― Hari Nef

“If my body can fall into the background for just a second, maybe people will start listening to what I have to say.”

― Hari Nef

“I prefer men who are queer. Not gay men, but queer men – guys with an open mind. Bisexual men, because they’re able to understand the different elements of the body without judging that I don’t conform to a certain ideal.”

― Hari Nef

“When I don’t wear makeup, it’s not because I’m lazy, but it’s me making this radical bid for the feminization of my body and being confident in that.”

― Hari Nef

“When it comes to modeling, I always feel like my body is a myth or a story that is told by other people, and no one knows what my body really looks like.”

― Hari Nef

“Everybody is constantly struggling to maintain a healthy lifestyle and the ideal body, regardless of whether they’re overweight.”

― Harley Pasternak

“All fats do not behave the same way in your body, and certain fats, including the omega-3 fats in salmon and other fatty fish and the monounsaturated fats in nuts, virgin olive oil, and avocados, are integral to a healthy diet.”

― Harley Pasternak

“While cardio prompts your body to burn calories while you are exercising, resistance training not only sculpts, tones, and strengthens your body, but it causes your body to burn more calories when you are at rest.”

― Harley Pasternak

“Different foods have different effects on our body beyond their calorie count. Our metabolism, hunger, blood sugar, and hormones respond differently to different types of foods. That means that 100 calories of broccoli is not the same as 100 calories of licorice, just as 3 oz. of salmon is not the same as 3 oz. of cupcakes.”

― Harley Pasternak

“There is no such thing as a healthy cleanse. It’s the worst thing you can do for your body.”

“I do a lot of body weight stuff, power work, with your legs as well. There are weights involved now and again. There is a bit of mixture.”

― Harry Kane

“It is about doing everything you can so your body can perform at the highest level.”

― Harry Kane

“The tour life definitely puts strains on your body, not just because of the dancing but because of the fact that you are traveling into the wee hours of the day, getting up early, going to sound check – just the grueling process of it all.”

― Harry Shum, Jr.

“I don’t naturally have the body language of a software guy.”

― Harshvardhan Rane

“In ‘Maaya,’ I’m going shirtless for the first time in my career. My producer requested me to take off my shirt in one of the scenes. I have been working extremely hard to flaunt a perfect body for the scene.”

― Harshvardhan Rane

“Israel remains a foreign body in this large area, and it always proved that it is unable to coexist with this environment, because the, the scope of the massacres that it has committed does not permit it to coexist.”

― Hassan Nasrallah

“What’s exciting about theatre is observing human behaviour. You’re constantly making judgments about body language, the physical, the emotional, the intellectual.”

― Hattie Morahan

“There’s a pressure to conform to particular images, and it feels a pretty exclusive pool of body image or facial image that is considered appealing. And in a way, that feels like pre-judging what an audience might actually want.”

― Hattie Morahan

“I find when I’m overly concerned about what I eat, I stress out my body and put on weight.”

― Hayden Panettiere

“I don’t have a model’s body. But I’m not one of those crazy girls who thinks that they’re fat. I’m okay with what I have. I can rock this body, you know?”

― Hayden Panettiere

“I’ve never worn plus size brands, and I never had to because I found what worked for my body type. So my advice is to find what works for you.”

― Hayley Hasselhoff

“The plus size movement is not just about fashion; it’s about body image, and if we’re doing a shoot, they won’t retouch us at all. That’s the cool thing: there’s no retouching at all because we want to give girls the truth, not a fabrication.”

― Hayley Hasselhoff

“I’m a big fan of moisturisers. Sometimes I’ll just buy a night-time nourishing cream from The Body Shop, and sometimes I’ll splurge on Creme de la Mer. I also love the Alba Botanica range.”

― Heather Graham

“Women today are bombarded with so many messages, like we should have Naomi Campbell’s body and Madeleine Albright’s career.”

― Helen Fisher

“Your face and head give more information about you than any other body part.”

“I do eat well. I try to love my body. That is what I tell my daughter. I say, ‘Love every bite of food. Love your body. We’re all going to be dead soon.’ Actually I don’t say that last thing to her.”

― Helen Hunt

“As I’ve got older, I feel more confident in my body, so wouldn’t want to tamper with it.”

― Helen McCrory

“It is, then, by those shadows of the hoary Past and their fantastic silhouettes on the external screen of every religion and philosophy, that we can, by checking them as we go along, and comparing them, trace out finally the body that produced them.”

― Helena Blavatsky

“As no outward motion or change, when normal, in man’s external body can take place unless provoked by an inward impulse, given through one of the three functions named, so with the external or manifested Universe.”

“Like any woman, I worry about my body.”

“I see plainly how external images influence the image that I call my body: they transmit movement to it.”

― Henri Bergson

“And I also see how this body influences external images: it gives back movement to them.”

“When we make the cerebral state the beginning of an action, and in no sense the condition of a perception, we place the perceived images of things outside the image of our body, and thus replace perception within the things themselves.”

― Henri Bergson

“I like to have the widest part of the car being the wheels and not the body. It gives it a more athletic look and, with the sculpture, helps make a car look sexy.”

― Henrik Fisker

“Superstition’s not for me. And I’m not much for medicine either. I know my mind and my body better than anyone else.”

“’Immortals’ was very much a martial arts based training program – a lot of body weight stuff, very little in the way of actually lifting heavy weights, and a very, very low calorie diet.”

― Henry Cavill

“When you get hit to the body, you don’t even worry about your face no more.”

― Henry Cejudo

“Fracture of the patella may be produced by muscular action or by direct violence. When produced by muscular action, it occurs thus: a person in danger of falling forwards attempts to recover himself by throwing the body backwards, and the violent action of the quadriceps extensor upon the patella snaps the bone transversely across.”

― Holly Madison

“If I could have a Barbie body, which has no cellulite, I totally would. I would like to have a flatter stomach, but that won’t happen either. That is never going to happen. No matter how much weight I lose, my stomach, below the belly button, always pooches out.”

“As an actor, you have many tools – your body, your voice, your emotions, mentally. In film, you have your eyes because they communicate your thought process. In fact, generally in film, what you don’t say is more important than what you say. That’s not so much the case for stage.”

― Hugh Jackman

A new body of knowledge brings into being a new class of people or institutions that can exercise a new kind of power.”

“The same law takes place in a system, consisting of many bodies, as in one single body, with regard to their persevering in their state of motion or of rest. For the progressive motion, whether of one single body or of a whole system of bodies, is always to be estimated from the motion of the center of gravity.”

― Isaac Newton

“Why there is one body in our System qualified to give light and heat to all the rest, I know no reason but because the Author of the System thought it convenient; and why there is but one body of this kind, I know no reason, but because one was sufficient to warm and enlighten all the rest.”

― Isaac Newton

“Now we are using the body scanner to scan the pilots. They became the dangerous people of this country?”

“If you take the right vitamins and drink enough water, your body flushes everything out for you.”

“I don’t look at ‘Vogue’ to ask what I’m going to wear. Because it’s something on a body too young. I have to look at the social pages to see women my age. To see how Amanda Burden is dressed and say, ‘Hmmm. Maybe I should try that.’”

― Isabella Rossellini

“I don’t ever wanna blame my body for not being right.”

― Iskra Lawrence

“I’m very aware I have very young people following me – 11- and 12-year-olds. I want to do things that are aspirational, so I’m not going to pick a picture that’s unattractive – even in the sense of lighting and angles – but I make sure that it’s realistic. It is me, and it is my body. I wouldn’t put anything out there that isn’t real.”

― Ivan Pavlov

“Often, I’ll do a quick workout in my hotel room consisting of exercises for the legs, glutes, abs, and arms with my own body weight. Also, I always have a jump rope, a medicine ball I can inflate, and a band in my suitcase. It’s a great kit to have for travel.”

― J. R. Martinez

“I’m into the whole American and New York vibe, not just because that’s what’s going on around me but because of the fit. A lot of guys are into the European cut, but I can’t really pull that off with my body type – I’m tall and have big legs.”

“I’m extremely hairy. It pretty much connects from the top of my head to my toes with a nice upper body sweater/track jacket type of thing.”

― Jake Arrieta

“I like to get the body temperature up, the heart rate up. I’ll do anywhere from 10 to 25 minutes either on a bike, a rower, a StairMaster, or a combination of the three of those. And then I’ll normally run through a 20- to 30-minute session either on the Pilates reformer, the Cadillac, or the Pilates chair.”

― James Durbin

“The body itself is an information processor. Memory resides not just in brains but in every cell. No wonder genetics bloomed along with information theory. DNA is the quintessential information molecule, the most advanced message processor at the cellular level – an alphabet and a code, 6 billion bits to form a human being.”

“For many, hair is just hair. It’s something you grow, shape, adapt, adorn, and cut. But my hair has always been so much more than what’s on my head. It’s a marker of how free I felt in my body, how comfortable I was with myself, and how much agency I had to control my body and express myself with it.”

“My body, my clothes, and my makeup are on purpose, just as I am on purpose.”

“Consciousness, when it’s unburdened by the body, is something that’s ecstatic; we use the mind to watch the mind, and that’s the meta-nature of our consciousness; we know that we know that we know, and that’s such a delicious feeling, but when it’s unburdened by biology and entropy, it becomes more than delicious: it becomes magical.”

― Jason Silva

“Your body is like a piece of dynamite. You can tap it with a pencil all day, but you’ll never make it explode. You hit it once with a hammer: Bang! Get serious. Do 40 hard minutes, not an hour and half of nonsense. It’s so much more rewarding.”

― Jason Statham

― Jay Cutler

― Jay Cutler

“Because I don’t produce insulin, I have to put insulin into my body, which means that I have a pen with a needle on it. I have it with me. You have to stick it in your thigh, or your arm – a lot of different spots you can put it.”

― Jay Cutler

― Jaye Davidson

“I’m not really worried about anybody or anything. I think I have a lot to offer. It’s just, with your rookie year, your body, it’s just a lot. It may seem foolish, all those dunks and stuff: they look cool, but it takes a toll on your body, for sure.”

“The idea of a physical stigma is quite appealing. When I wrote the book of ‘Bodies,’ there was a lot of that in the book about how there are physical manifestations of psychological problems – I think it’s described as ‘Narrativizing The Body.’”

― Jed Mercurio

“What I’m trying to do is just sing what comes to my body in the context of the song. And if you go by the emotion of the song, it’s almost like stepping into a city. Cities have certain customs and rules and laws you can break, and that’s what I was doing.”

― Jeff Buckley

“For the most part, yeah, I’m happy with my body, but there are days when I’m like, ‘Ugh! Really? Why is it so hard to fit into my jeans?’ That’s when I say to myself, ‘I look this way because I’m supposed to. If we all looked the same, we’d be boring.’”

“To understand the intensity of driving an F1 car, you have to be in it. When you’re driving a 750hp machine at 200mph, the noise and the vibrations are incredible.

“My face and body have been a tool for my career, and I’m very conscious of that aspect and try and keep it the best I can.”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“I don’t wear strappy tops. Everyone feels self-conscious about something on their body. It’s just finding a style that works for you, and I don’t really suit strappy tops or dresses, so I avoid them.”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“Your mind is like, oh my God, I know this is wrong, but your body just gives in.”

― Jessica Hahn

“I have 18 tattoos. My tattoos have kind of become their own person. Everybody does stories on them. It is risky to be successful in the fashion industry and to tat your body up, but I figured, the way that I made my career and the way that I am successful is because I have always been myself.”

― Jessica White

“Be true to yourself, know that your are more than your face and body, and keep God first.”

“Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But, it’s usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.”

― Jim Morrison

“Blake said that the body was the soul’s prison unless the five senses are fully developed and open. He considered the senses the ‘windows of the soul.’ When sex involves all the senses intensely, it can be like a mystical experence.”

― Jim Morrison

“Adult stem cells have shown great potential and have effectively helped patients. Another alternative is cord-blood stem cells. These are a neglected resource that could be used to treat a diverse body of people.”

“The strongest thing I put into my body is steak and eggs. I just eat. I’m not a supplement guy. Steroids are not even a thought.”

― Jimmy Carr

“I love my body. I take good care of it.”

― Jimmy Graham

“Because Led Zeppelin weren’t having to worry about doing singles, each time we went in to record, it was a body of work for an album. So you could get the shift and the movement forwards as opposed to having to be rooted back to a single that might have been done a year ago.”

― Jimmy Page

“In most sports, your brain and your body will cooperate… But in rock climbing, it is the other way around. Your brain doesn’t see the point in climbing upwards. Your brain will tell you to keep as low as possible, to cling to the wall and not get any higher. You have to have your brain persuading your body to do the right movements.”

― Jo Nesbo

“There are places on a man’s head that are as hard as a rock. Your head’s actually stronger than your body. And you don’t have too many instruments up there workin’. But you got a lot of tools workin’ in that body: the liver, the kidneys, the heart, the lungs. You soften that up and see what happens. I lived by the body shot.”

― John Burroughs

“Here’s the thing, with comedy – and I learned this from Will Ferrell – you can’t be ashamed. If you’re doing comedy, you have to fully commit to the joke. Shame is not part of it.

― Joyce Meyer

“A pattern has developed under the Maduro regime. When pressure builds, the first recourse is to repress and persecute.

“Back when the concept of organ transplants qualified as science fiction, novelist Maurice Renard wrote a thriller called ‘Les Mains d’Orlac.’ Call it a bastard offspring of ‘Frankenstein;’ its plot revolved around the old theme of Science Giving Us Stuff We Shouldn’t Have – in this particular case, restoring severed body parts.”

― Lady Gregory

“Our worst instincts as human beings have to do with our carelessness with natural resources, and when the body itself becomes just one more of those resources, how will we treat it? Will we treat it with such indifference and with such depersonalization that it becomes more like a very fancy car than a repository of the self?”

“The bulk of my learning – if I may call it such – has come within the past three months, after I became a part of the fragile body of patients who make up an AIDS hospice.

― Lawrence Kasdan

“Local order in parts of the universe is always possible at the expense of heat and disorder dissipated to the external environment.

“Every shot feels like the first shot of the day. If I’m on the range hitting shot after shot, I can hit them just as good as I did when I was 30.

― Lisa Bonet

“It’s important to be gentle about my routines. I’ve learned that the hard way. When I’m really stressed out, I can take it out on my body and hurt myself. Sometimes I need to be as loving and soft with myself as possible. I’ve had to learn how to pay attention. It’s a kind of mind-set.”

― Lisa Edelstein

“I actually made an effort to reject acting, to shove it out of my body, because I didn’t want my kids to have an actress as a mother-to have, like, a silly person.”

― Lynn Coady

“Body concentrates order. It continuously self-repairs. Every five days you get a new stomach lining. You get a new liver every two months. Your skin replaces itself every six weeks. Every year, 98 percent of the atoms of your body are replaced. This non-stop chemical replacement, metabolism, is a sure sign of life.”

― Lynn Margulis

“The rescue of a person, who is assaulted, or restrained of his liberty, without authority of law, is not only morally, but legally, a meritorious act; for every body is under obligation to go to the assistance of one who is assailed by assassins, robbers, ravishers, kidnappers, or ruffians of any kind.”

― Lysander Spooner

“Being in South Africa, that messed up my body a little bit. I broke out in spots, and I got really dehydrated, and the water was really different.

“When you’re actually talking over someone, it’s as if you’re just pontificating and they’re not even there. And their body language – they’re trying to get away from you.

“I can teach many sports, but obviously, tennis is the one. When you do other sports, you see things from different perspectives: different footwork drills, body positions, angles and geometry.

“To keep your he-man jaw muscles from smashing your precious teeth, the only set you have, the body evolved an automated braking system faster and more sophisticated than anything on a Lexus.

I literally close my eyes, and I just jump, and my body just takes over, and thankfully I haven’t hurt anybody.”

― Neve Campbell

“You’re being cast for your acting ability. It’s not based on the way your body functions. If you’re playing a lead in a movie, it’s for that character and they’ll tailor it to you. In a dance company, you have to fit in a definite mold.”

“When I was in the army, there were four times that I was wounded. I also got more than 30 wounds on my body, and my injuries were ranked on the second rank of invalids. The first rank is the most severe. So, that means that I had lost more than 60 per cent of working capability.”

“Lightened body armor, which the military has made progress on, would mean increased safety and reduced risk for soldiers like the sergeant and the colonel.”

― Padma Lakshmi

“One thing that happens when you’re pregnant is that as your stomach starts to stretch. It itches! So I have to keep my belly really lubricated. Every morning, there’s a buttering ceremony after I get out of the shower. It’s really like basting a turkey with body butter.”

― Padma Lakshmi

“When I was in England, I did a lot of wrestling and moves. Over here, they were like, ‘You don’t need to do that much. Save your body. Become an entertainer rather than a wrestler.’ And I wasn’t used to wrestling on TV and in front of huge crowds, so it was a big adjustment.”

“I’m going to fight until my body says otherwise.”

― Robbie Lawler

“You can only stay at a high level so long before you need to rest your body.”

― Roger Stone

“If I had to pick favourite parts of Interlagos, I would say the first and last corners. The first corner is really technical and punishes you if you get it wrong, while the last corner is so fast and really puts quite a strain on your body. As a driver, I really enjoy these corners.”

“I think it’s hilarious if people say that my body looks masculine.”

― Ronda Rousey

“I don’t lift weights at all. Every muscle on my body is for an actual task; there is no muscle that I train for show. If I want to be able to do a certain move or action, I train really hard until I can. And with all of that training comes muscle definition, so it’s really an afterthought.”

“Cancer is really a DNA disease… We have these certain genes that prevent our cells from growing out of control at the expense of the body. And it’s a pretty good, robust system. But if a couple of these genes fail, then that’s when cancer starts, and cells start growing out of control.”

― Sam Kean

“Your body thinks radium is a great thing to pack into bone – where it kills some cells outright and scrambles the DNA of others, causing problems like cancer.”

― Sam Kean

“Over the years, humans have managed to incorporate nearly every element, light and weighty, common and obscure, into our daily lives.

“If you get an infection, you get a fever; the fever is your body dealing with the infection. If you get traumatized, your mind and your brain have a reaction to that trauma. If you’re not dreaming about it, something’s probably wrong.”

― Sebastian Junger

“Of the primary emotions, fear is the one that bears most directly on survival. Children show fear. Adults try not to, maybe because it’s shameful, or, in some circumstances, dangerous. The fear response is automatic, though, and your body runs through its reflexes whether you want it to or not.”

― Sebastian Junger

“When it comes to brains, size matters. It’s not all that matters, of course. Whales and dolphins have brains that are larger than humans’, but few of the flippered and fluked set win tenure at Stanford. Our brains are the largest in proportion to body size, and they’re also highly sophisticated.”

― Seth Shostak

“We’re constantly bombarded with perfect airbrushed images. Every magazine you look at is like ‘top 20 tricks to have the perfect body’ and it’s ridiculous.”

― Shannon Purser

“When you’re on a show that is so free with the body and nudity, you get a guest director every episode, and you want to make sure that they’re not trying to one-up each other. It will take away the integrity of our show and the character if you’re just gratuitously showing boobs.”

― Shanola Hampton

“Football, or soccer as it is known, is a game of two halves. It’s a game with rules and a referee. FIFA, the governing body for football, follows neither the rule of law or has the oversight of a referee.”

― Sharan Burrow

“Everything on my body turned real dark. My toes, under my feet, inside my mouth, under my tongue – I just turned really dark. I’m still here, but it’s gonna take a while to get back to normal. Chemo kills all the good cells along with the bad.”

― Sharon Jones

“If I can’t pronounce it, I don’t want to put it in my body. Everything to me now is organic, natural, right from the farm.”

― Sharon Jones

“My problem is: as a singer and a dancer, if I get it in my body one way, it is harder for me to be open to something new – to something else; to something that is really organically connected to the piece and not just to my perception of it.”

― Sharon Lawrence

“I’ve been working on the way my originality, my body, my face, my original form is perceived by me.”

“With Michael Jackson, when he moved, it looked like a martial artist to me. He was quicker than other dancers, but he didn’t have muscles; he was just quicker and looked more in control of gravity. He looked like a martial arts master, so I tried to steal body movement from him; that’s why I imitate Michael Jackson a little bit.”

― Shinsuke Nakamura

“Darts players are probably a lot fitter than most footballers in overall body strength.”

“Mentally, I have to get my body and mind in the right place before I start the routine, but once into the zone, it’s like I turn on a switch. I envision myself doing the same thing for the Olympic Games.”

― Simone Biles

“It’s amazing that I can inspire little kids to know that you can be short or tall, and your body type doesn’t matter because you can do anything.”

“I was diagnosed with a severe temporal spatial deficit, a learning disability that means I have zero spatial relations skills. It was official: I was a genius trapped in an idiot’s body.”

― Sloane Crosley

“For the average person, taken to their sick bed, it takes a serious bout of pneumonia or a full body cast to completely forget the life they had prior to falling off the rollercoaster. I, however, will do this over a paper cut on my thumb, obsessing of said cut and being generally consumed by it.”

― Sloane Crosley

“In New York, if you weigh under 200 pounds and decline so much as a cookie at a co-worker’s party, women will flock to your side, assuring you of your appealing physique. This is how skittish we are about the dangers of anorexia and the pressures of body image.”

― Sloane Crosley

“Normally, I am a vocal advocate for ‘looking both ways’ and ‘knowing the size of one’s own body.’ But working, socialising and simply running errands in Manhattan, means I am bound to break my own rules on occasion.”

― Sloane Crosley

“I make body chains that come from the neck, cross in the middle of your chest, then go around your waist. I mix them with feathers for a gypsy, bohemian style.”

“Every cancer is different. The symptoms and treatments are different, and every human body deals with it differently. There are no formulas to it. That, I think, was the biggest takeaway for me.”

“Temperament can really take a toll on the voice. If you get tight in your body with the acting, then you can get tight in your voice. And then you can get tired, and you can damage yourself vocally.”

― Sondra Radvanovsky

“Temperament and tightness often go together. But if you’re tight, you can’t sing. So I have to have that tension in my body but not in my voice.”

― Sondra Radvanovsky

“The vocal cords are a muscle, and like any other muscle in the body, they can be strained. So you have to warm up.”

― Sophia Bush

“Brooke and I share some similarities. We’re both passionate, fiercely loyal people. But she is far more outlandish than I’d ever be, particularly with her body and her sexuality. Brooke has made herself weak for men – she only gained self-confidence from their attention.”

― Sophia Bush

“I’m not a waif-y girl and never will be. I think it’s healthy when fitness experts encourage fitness rather than getting a certain body shape.”

― Sophia Bush

“Agatha Christie never wrote books that just started with a dead body, and a ‘Let’s find out who the murderer is’, which is kind of mysterious but not that mysterious. She always started with, ‘How can this thing be happening; isn’t it strange?’”

― Sophie Hannah

“My crime novels are highly structured. I never start out with a dead body. I start with an impossible scenario. Opening questions should be mysterious, weird, intriguing, and contain the seeds of the solution. The structure has to be meticulous – I’m a structure freak.”

“My body is for my tennis – it’s for my sport. I’m not a model at all. I don’t work out to go to the beach: I work out to play well and to do well on the court.”

― Stan Wawrinka

“You can’t underestimate rest. Sometimes in tennis we don’t realize that to rest your body is as important as it is to practice. We are traveling so much, all year, in different conditions, different courts, different surfaces, different balls – so we always have to adapt.”

― Stan Wawrinka

“If consciousness can function independently of the body during one’s lifetime, it could be able to do the same after death.”

“Having a healthy body and healthy mind is always something I think about.”

― Stella Maxwell

“When I first started working with Victoria’s Secret, I wanted to get stronger. That was something I wanted to build on and really be as strong and powerful as I could be. Working with Victoria’s Secret, I started really thinking about my body and my muscles.”

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that from puberty onwards, the female body is disgusting and unruly and must be tamed, trimmed and tinted to within an inch of its life before it can be allowed to roam freely in the public eye.”

“I do sometimes painful things to my body in an effort to conform to culturally imposed beauty ideals.”

― Stella Young

“Self esteem and a healthy body image for people with disabilities are so often hard-fought.”

“What air is to the body, to feel understood is to the heart.”

“It was extremely important to show that Wilde’s sexuality was not just some intellectual idea. It was real, and it was about the human body. To just have mentioned it and not shown it would have been, I think, peculiar and wrong.”

“Although almost every theoretical physicist agrees with my prediction that a black hole should glow like a hot body, it would be very difficult to verify experimentally because the temperature of a macroscopic black hole is so low.”

― Stephen Hawking

“You cannot underestimate the body blow for a snooker player of having your cue broken. After all, it’s an extension to your arm.”

― Stephen Hendry

“When most people think of economists, they think of macro-economists. Macro-economists try to describe or – even harder – predict the movements of a hugely dynamic system. They’re like a transplant surgeon trying to simultaneously transplant every failing organ in someone’s body.”

“Ray would be in trouble, he would get drunk, he would try and kill J.R on three different occasions, he would make mistakes with financial affairs, and have various human problems, but he didn’t have any mean bones in his body! That was a little bit of what the show was about.”

― Steve Kanaly

“When I first started playing music in 1955, there was just a small body of people that knew it. It was a very esoteric type of thing.”

― Steve Lacy

“I use a lot of balance training and functional training. Basically it’s where you add an element of instability to a regular exercise. So whether it’s on the physioball or the Bosu ball or just balancing on one leg, I try to incorporate an instable plane and/or movement to the exercise, so the body’s doing two or more movements.”

― Steve Nash

“Did you ever run behind a slow pack? You get a trailing wind and a lot of body odor.”

“’Skinny’ is only one body type.”

― Susie Orbach

“The insistence that the commercialisation of the body is a fit subject for political discussion and intervention is well overdue.”

― Susie Orbach

“My No. 1 piece of advice, especially for someone who’s an actor-singer-dancer – a triple threat, they’re called! – people say, ‘What’s the most important?’ I always say acting. Without knowing why you’re singing or what you’re singing about, it’s just noise. And without knowing why you’re moving your body, it’s just flailing of arms.”

“Fast sex, like fast food, is cheap, but it doesn’t nourish the body – or the soul.”

― Suzanne Somers

“For a slim, sexy body, it’s important to eat protein every day – preferably at every meal. Be sure to ask about the origins of your meat, poultry and seafood. If you can’t afford organic, free-range meats, opt for natural poultry, pork, and beef that’s raised without antibiotics or hormones.”

― Suzanne Somers

“Toxicity causes nutritional deprivation – and your body then craves more and more food, trying to get what it needs.”

― Suzanne Somers

“Artificial sweeteners may trigger cravings for other sweet foods. When your body is not fed nutrients, it asks again and again for more food, triggering heavy-duty cravings for fattening, sugary foods. Artificial sweeteners also mess with your metabolism.”

― Suzanne Somers

“Your liver is your vital detoxification organ, and if it becomes overloaded with toxins from the food, drink, or medications you’re consuming, you’ll have more toxins circulating throughout your body, damaging your organs and glands. Detoxing your liver will help it work more efficiently – and help you slim your waistline.”

― Suzanne Somers

“Sometimes you may even have a stunt double do certain things for you, but when it’s close-up and it’s really dramatic, that’s when you really need to concentrate. You cannot get body doubles or anybody else to do it for you.”

― Twiggy

“From as far back as I can remember, I was always insecure about my looks, whether it was my flat chest, my skinny legs, or how to cope with my body as it changed. With hindsight, I can see I was different. I was given a body that worked for photographic modelling and a photogenic face.”
