Famous quotes containing the words fat and/or body:

    Always be on time. Never try to make any personal engagements. Do as little talking as humanly possible. Never be disturbed by anything. Always do what you’re told to do as quickly as possible. Remember to lean back in a parade, so that people can see your husband. Don’t get too fat to ride three on a seat. Get out of the way as quickly as you’re not needed.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    We may well ask, What causes induce us to believe in the existence of body? but ‘tis vain to ask. Whether there be body or not? That is a point which we must take for granted in all our reasonings.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
