He gave me a physique by which I would be so easily and so quickly judged, then gave me a mind by which I would so deeply magnetize, He put within me a heart with small, fast wings that I can hardly, barely handle, and then gave me a voice that hides behind everything in whispers. Oh, and also put a pen in my hand which writes me into madness! How can anyone possibly understand me? But I don't think God cared about that thought, when He made me! How ridiculously unfair!"
Author: C. JoyBell C.

Especially since her girl parts had been told "No" way too many time sin recent years."
Author: Candis Terry

Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Never had she touched a man's chest. She waited a moment. His breathing was still constant, still regular. He was still asleep. Flattening her palm against his chest, she felt the tautness of his muscles. She moved her hand, slowly, tremulously, down his chest and across his stomach, feeling the firmness of his skin and his strong physique. He seized her hand, pushed it away, and turned his back to her."
Author: Cate Campbell Beatty

His wife had died the year before, and the husky black-eyed politician with his glimmering silver hair and elegant broad-shouldered physique was now on every widow's list of eligible.

But with God's saving power, every new day is a gift, an opportunity to detach yourself from tormenting thoughts about food or how you look and to attach yourself to God. Remember, we all hunger for God, more than we hunger for a big bowl of ice cream or a perfect physique."

I didn't know what they wanted, or might do."

35. "Lorsque la sexualité disparaît, c'est le corps de l'autre qui apparaît, dans sa présence vaguement hostile; ce sont les bruits, les mouvements, les odeurs; et la présence même de ce corps qu'on ne peut plus toucher, ni sanctifier par le contact, devient peu à peu une gêne; tout cela malheureusement, est connu. La disparition de la tendresse suit toujours de près celle de l'érotisme. Il n'y a pas de relation épurée, d'union supérieure des âmes, ni quoi que ce soit qui puisse y ressembler, ou même l'évoquer sur un mode allusif. Quand l'amour physique disparaît, tout disparaît; un agacement morne, sans profondeur, vient remplir la succession des jours."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
36. "De plus en plus, les théories qui tentaient d'expliquer les phénomènes économiques, de prévoir leurs évolutions, lui apparaissaient a peu prés également inconsistantes, hasardeuses, elle était de plus en plus tentée de les assimiler a du charlatanisme pur et simple; il était même surprenant, se disait-elle parfois, qu'on attribue un prix Nobel d'économie, comme si cette discipline pouvait se prévaloir du même sérieux méthodologique, de la même rigueur intellectuelle que la chimie, ou que la physique."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
37. "Ce fut en ces circonstances, une nuit de juillet 1974, qu'Annabelle accéda à la conscience douloureuse et définitive de son existence individuelle. D'abord révélée à l'animal sous la forme de la douleur physique, l'existence individuelle n'accède dans les sociétés humaines à la pleine conscience d'elle-même que par l'intermédiaire du mensonge, avec lequel elle peut en pratique se confondre. Jusqu'à l'âge de seize ans, Annabelle n'avait pas eu de secrets pour ses parents; elle n'avait pas eu non plus - et cela avait été, elle s'en rendait compte à présent, quelque chose de rare et de précieux - desecrets pour Michel. En quelques heures cette nuit-là Annabelle prit conscience que la vie des hommes était une succession ininterrompue de mensonges. Par la même occasion, elle prit conscience de sa beauté."
Author: Michel Houellebecq
38. "En travaux pratiques de physique, n'importe quel collégien peut faire des expériences pour vérifier l'exactitude d'une hypothèse scientifique. Mais l'homme, parce qu'il n'a qu'une seule vie, n'a aucune possibilité de vérifier l'hypothèse par l'expérience de sorte qu'il ne saura jamais s'il a eu tort ou raison d'obéir à son sentiment. (partie I, ch. 16)"
Author: Milan Kundera
39. "I like to use the analogy of going to the gym. If you go to the gym and your goal is, 'I want to look just like David Beckham,' then that drives you to do certain things. You may never look like Beckham, but it is a goal. Cities need the same thing. They need a vision and a plan for their ideal physique."
Author: Mitchell Joachim
40. "Nothing is more evident than that Nature hates mind. Thinking is the most unhealthy thing in the world, and people die of it just as they die of any disease. Fortunately, in England at any rate, thought is not catching. Our splendid physique as a people is entirely due to our national stupidity."
Author: Oscar Wilde
41. "My Aunt Dahlia, who runs a woman's paper called Milady's Boudoir, had recently backed me into a corner and made me promise to write her a few words for her "Husbands and Brothers" page on "What the Well-Dressed Man is Wearing". I believe in encouraging aunts, when deserving; and, as there are many worse eggs than her knocking about the metrop, I had consented blithely. But I give you my honest word that if I had had the foggiest notion of what I was letting myself in for, not even a nephew's devotion would have kept me from giving her the raspberry. A deuce of a job it had been, taxing the physique to the utmost. I don't wonder now that all these author blokes have bald heads and faces like birds who have suffered."
Author: P.G. Wodehouse
42. "Beginning with a critique of my own limbs, which she said, justly enough, were nothing to write home about, this girl went on to dissect my manners, morals, intellect, general physique, and method of eating asparagus with such acerbity that by the time she had finished the best you could say of Bertram was that, so far as was known, he had never actually committed murder or set fire to an orphan asylum."
Author: P.G. Wodehouse
43. "I personally feel that, for some people, their physique and looks work for them. And when you're deprived of both these aspects, you rely on humour!"
Author: Riteish Deshmukh
44. "Cette impuissance physique se traduit par une timidité plus générale: elle ne croit pas á une force qu'elle n'a pas expérimentée dans son corps; elle n'ose pas entreprendrem se révolter, inventer: vouée à la docilité, à la résignation, elle ne peut qu'accepter dans la société une place toute faite."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir

Author: Tom Jones
47. "I learned that love can end in one night, that great friends can become great strangers, that strangers can become best friends, that we never finish to know and understand someone completely, that the "never ever again" will happen again and that "forever" always ends, that the one that wants it can, will achieve it and get it, that the one that risks it never looses anything, that physique, figure and beauty attracts but personality makes one fall in love."
Author: Tommy Tran
48. "A great figure or physique is nice, but it's self-confidence that makes someone really sexy."
Author: Vivica A. Fox
49. "There are few physiques I loathe more than the heavy low-slung pelvis, thick calves and deplorable complexion of the average coed (in whom I see, maybe, the coffin of coarse female flesh within which my nymphets are buried alive)."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
50. "Quand celui à qui l'on parle ne comprend pas et celui qui parle ne se comprend pas, c'est de la métaphysiqueWhen he to whom a person speaks does not understand, and he who speaks does not understand himself, that is metaphysics."
