Is it not common to say to a child, ‘Put your finger in that candle, can you bear it even for one minute?’ How then will you bear Hell-fire?

A great, a good, and a right mind is a kind of divinity lodged in flesh, and may be the blessing of a slave as well as of a prince: it came from heaven, and to heaven it must return; and it is a kind of heavenly felicity, which a pure and virtuous mind enjoys, in some degree, even upon earth.

Carlos Santana

For me, the existentialists are important critics of ‘absolutist’ claims, and Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty are, at least in their later writings, also exponents of a doctrine of mystery: Being or the ‘well-spring’ of everything is, for Heidegger, ineffable, just as what Merleau-Ponty called ‘Flesh’ is for him.
David E. Cooper
How many times already had I encountered the painful lesson that although we may wish for the barb to be pulled from our flesh, it leaves a welt that doesn’t heal?
Arthur Golden
I scourge both flesh and spirit because I know that I have offended in both flesh and spirit.
Peter Damian
Every soul, then, by reason of its birth, has its nature in Adam until it is born again in Christ; moreover, it is unclean all the while that it remains without this regeneration; and because unclean, it is actively sinful, and suffuses even the flesh (by reason of their conjunction) with its own shame.
I feel my griefs too, and there scarce is ground Upon my flesh t’inflict another wound. Yet dare I not complain, or wish for death With holy Paul; lest it be thought the breath Of discontent; or that these prayers be For weariness of life, not love of thee.
Ben Jonson
Antichrist is the pope and the Turk [Muslim] together. A beast full of life must have a body and soul. The spirit or soul of Antichrist is the pope, his flesh or body the Turk.
Martin Luther
But this plan of yous!’ Tawaret shuddered, causing a tsunami of jiggling hippo flesh.
Rick Riordan
There are two sins of men that are bred in the bone and that continually come out in the flesh. One is self-dependence and the other is self-exultation.
Charles Spurgeon
Farewell is said by the living, in life, every day. It is said with love and friendship, with the affirmation that the memories are lasting if the flesh is not.
R. A. Salvatore
We are more than just flesh and bones. There’s a certain spiritual nature and something of the mind that we can’t measure. We can’t find it. With all our sophisticated equipment, we cannot monitor or define it, and yet it’s there.
Benjamin Carson
She was made of flesh and eyelashes.
Leonard Cohen
The most horrible question students ask: ‘How do you paint copper?’ ‘How do you paint flesh or glass?’ You paint everything the same way: Right color, right value, in right spot. There are no prescriptions.
Sergei Bongart
Such a little thing really, a kiss… most people don’t give it a moment’s consideration. They kiss on meeting, they kiss on parting, that simple touching of flesh is taken entirely for granted as a basic human right.
Sarah Kay
In life there are two things which are dependable. The pleasures of the flesh and the pleasures of literature.
Sei Shonagon
Pity and need Make all flesh kin. There in no caste in blood.
Edwin Arnold
Fingers interlocked like a beautiful accordion of flesh or a zipper of prayer
Sarah Kay
Long live the new flesh.
David Cronenberg
If the sins of the flesh ever got old I didn’t ever want enough years on me to know it.
Mark Lawrence
Our bones, flesh and blood are made up of the metals, liquids and minerals of the earth and everything on this planet is made up of the same things. As humans we have being, so everything on the earth does too in our culture, because we are made of the same thing.
John Trudell
There is no gospel without the offence. This is God’s wisdom. It never seems sensible to us in our flesh.
Mark Dever
An ignorant man ages like an ox. His flesh may increase, but not his understanding.
Gautama Buddha
Wherefore, if meat causeth my brother to stumble, I will eat no flesh for evermore, that I cause not my brother to stumble.
Paul the Apostle
We may not preach a crucified Savior without being also crucified men and women. It is not enough to wear an ornamental cross as a pretty decoration. The cross that Paul speaks about was burned into his very flesh, was branded into his being, and only the Holy Spirit can burn the true cross into our innermost life.
A. B. Simpson
Poverty calls us to sow hope…. Poverty is the flesh of the poor Jesus, in that child who is hungry, in the one who is sick, in those unjust social structures.
Pope Francis
The beautiful disease and The government falls along the weed rooms flesh along the weed government.
William S. Burroughs
There is a satisfactory boniness about grammar which the flesh of sheer vocabulary requires before it can become a vertebrate and walk the earth.
Anthony Burgess
There is a lot of flesh to be put on the bones – but there is at least an opening for a more pragmatic, less ideological debate about how to build economies that work for people, within the limits of our planet.
Mariana Mazzucato
Do not be impatient for impatience is of the flesh. Do not try different methods because they are useful solely in helping the flesh. We must distrust the flesh entirely.
Watchman Nee
Lost in loneliness and pain. Black and unendurable, Thinking of you with every Corpuscle of my flesh, in Every instant of night And day.
Kenneth Rexroth
Blue liner at the lash line is a great way to brighten the eyes. I also love using a flesh-toned eye pencil on the water line to neutralize any redness. Tipping the lashes with navy mascara is another great way to make the whites appear whiter.
Tim Quinn
How can kindliness rule that man
Who eateth other flesh to increase his own?
An evangelizing community gets involved in word and deed in people’s daily lives; it bridges distances, it is willing to abase itself if necessary, and it embraces human life, touching the suffering flesh of Christ in others
Pope Francis
You — you strange — you almost unearthly thing! — I love as my own flesh. You — poor and obscure, and small and plain as you are — I entreat to accept me as a husband.
Charlotte Bronte
The old cross slew men; the new cross entertains them. The old
cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed
confidence in the flesh; the new cross encourages it.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
Man is born of woman, he is flesh of her flesh and bone of her bone.
Mahatma Gandhi
… where Solomon says that ‘Wisdom has built herself a house’ (Prov. 9:1), he refers darkly in these words to the preparation of the flesh of the Lord: for the true Wisdom did not dwell in another’s building, but built for Itself that dwelling-place from the body of the Virgin.
Gregory of Nyssa
Technically, a makeup artist’s canvas is the face and body. The difference is that my painting of makeup is integrated into the painting of the flesh and not on top of it. I think in some ways it is more difficult to expressively deploy makeup.
Richard Phillips
Father Fernando did every thing in his power to assist the sick; and although he arrived much reduced in flesh, he did not become ill, and is now well.
Junipero Serra
Churchill was one of the few men I have met who even in the flesh give me the impression of genius. George Bernard Shaw is another. It is amusing to know that each thinks the other is overrated.
David Low
… Rebel against the flesh and bone,
The word of the blood, the wily skin,
And the maggot no man can slay.
Dylan Thomas
The hand of bone and sinew and flesh achieves its immortality in taking up a pen. The hand on a page wields a greater power than the fleshly hand ever could in life.
Laurie R. King
My national service is part of my training for freeing my soul from the bondage of the flesh.
Mahatma Gandhi
The New Testament presents, in its way, the same union of the divine and human as the person of Christ. In this sense also ‘the word became flesh, and dwells among us.’
Philip Schaff
I’m trying to create flesh architecture. I aim to get a sculptural feel for groups of bodies, as well as create performance art.
Spencer Tunick
I spent an hour looking at pots and carpets in the museums the other day, until the desire to describe them became like the desire for the lusts of the flesh.
Virginia Woolf
She scissored the curls away, and – toms, grow easily sentimental over their haircuts, but I remember this sensation very vividly – it was not like she was cutting hair, it was as if I had a pair of wings beneath my shoulder-blades, that the flesh had all grown over, and she was slicing free.
Sarah Waters
I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.
Leonardo da Vinci
My goal should never be to raise kids that make me look good. (Oh but how my flesh craves this!) My goal should be to raise kids who love God and spend their lives making His goodness known in their corner of the world.
Lysa TerKeurst
The MORE you Trust in the Arm of the FLESH, the LESS you’re going to see of the POWER of GOD.
Paul Washer
For fear of causing terror to living beings, Mahamati, let the Bodhisattva who is disciplining himself to attain compassion, refrain from eating flesh.
Gautama Buddha
You strive to have a good heart. But what is a heart? Just a chunk of flesh that a dog can eat.
Ha Jin
Fritz Mondale is not some synthetic Masked Marvel or Mystery Man. He is not made of silicon and micro-chip flakes. He is made of flesh and blood and brains.
Lane Kirkland
There is only one way to be prepared for death: to be sated. In the soul, in the heart, in the spirit, in the flesh. To the brim.
Henry de Montherlant
It is purity of spirit that will keep corruption from the flesh
Mark Lawrence
THE old man died beneath the wheels of the twentieth century. There was nothing left but stains, bloodstains and fragments of flesh . . . And the same thing is happening to my generation.
Dambudzo Marechera
In Zechariah 14.. their flesh dissolves away, because of the plague hitting them for coming against the Jews in Jerusalem. When did that happen? I’ve never read when flesh dissolved; it can now, because of necrotizing fasciitis, or the neutron bomb, but not in 70AD.
Jack Van Impe
The flesh is at the heart of the world.
Maurice Merleau-Ponty
Not everyone is born a witch or a saint. Not everyone is born talented, or crooked, or blessed; some are born definite in no particular at all. We are a fountain of shimmering contradictions, most of us. Beautiful in the concept, if we’re lucky, but frequently tedious or regrettable as we flesh ourselves out.
Gregory Maguire
As one recalls some of the monstrous situations under which human beings have lived and live their lives, one marvels at man’s meekness and complacency. It can only be explained by the quality of flesh to become calloused to situations that if faced suddenly would provoke blisters and revolt.
George Amos Dorsey
…unless the grace of God comes to the help of our frailty, to protect and defend it, no man can withstand the insidious onslaughts of the enemy nor can he damp down or hold in check the fevers which burn in our flesh with nature’s fire.
John Cassian
We don’t have to have blood relations in order to be brothers and sisters. Flesh and blood, those are just things that we’re made of. In a real family, what matters is our hearts. We care, show concern and love. Anyone can be family too.
Kim Da-hyun
‘Bloom’ is basically the idea that all flesh is grass, and that we can look at natural plant growth and organic material as outgrowths of the Earth.
Ken Goldberg
Human life is but of brief duration. ‘All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God shall stand forever’ (Isa. 40:6, 8). Let us hold fast to the commandment that abides, and despise the unreality that passes away.
Saint Basil
She was his soulmate, as much a part of him as the very flesh and bone that made him. She was with him, in him, in everything he did. She was everything he wanted from his life, the very measure of his dreams.
Jennifer Donnelly
This is the wonderful truth, my dear friends: the Word, which became flesh two thousand years ago, is present today in the Eucharist
Pope John Paul II
I’m vain. My arms are thin, but I’m vain about loose flesh. And so I’m careful that what I wear will show off my best parts, which are my waist and my butt.
Jane Fonda
All the fear has left me now, I’m not frightened anymore. It’s my heart that pounds beneath my flesh, it’s my mouth that pushes out this breath.
Sarah McLachlan
It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh.
Douglas MacArthur
God created our souls to be satisfied only with the divine everlastingness of the Word made flesh.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
His lips covered hers as he laid the gauze on her leg. Fiery pain shot through her flesh as his lips swallowed her cry, then replaced it with such amazing sensation she wanted to whimper in return. He licked her lips. He didn’t steal her kiss. He didn’t take it. He cajoled it from her.
Lora Leigh
I’m never gonna die, never heard of death, energy can never be destroyed only the flesh, so when you try to murder me with bullets to the head this is why you can’t kill me niggaz, I’m already dead.
Staring us in the face is the desperate plight of the poor. We don’t need statistics to tell us that. They are flesh and blood people like ourselves, often out of work, forced out of rented premises, without money and without food.
Eva Burrows
The battle over flesh and blood cannot compare to the battle for the heart.
Ted Dekker
The wealth and prosperity of the country are only the comeliness of the body, the fullness of the flesh and fat; but the spirit is independent of them; it requires only muscle, bone and nerve for the true exercise of its functions. We cannot lose our liberty, because we cannot cease to think.
Humphry Davy
The pain of the flesh is naught to that of the heart
Jacqueline Carey
Repentance is the true turning of our life to God, a turning that arises from a pure and earnest fear of Him; and it consists in the mortification of the flesh and the renewing of the Spirit.
John Calvin
I have a horror of the word ‘flesh’, which has become so shopworn.Why not ‘meat’whilethey’re about it? What I like is skin, a young girl’s skin that is pink and shows that she has a good circulation.
Pierre-Auguste Renoir
She stood there until something fell off the shelf inside her. Then she went inside there to see what it was. It was her image of Jody tumbled down and shattered. But looking at it she saw that it never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams. Just something she had grabbed up to drape her dreams over.
Zora Neale Hurston
The way to Heaven is ascending; we must be content to travel uphill, though it be hard and tiresome, and contrary to the natural bias of our flesh.
Jonathan Edwards
Soldiers are issued armour for their flesh and bones, but they must fashion their own for their souls. Piece by piece.
Steven Erikson
This is the gospel. The just and loving Creator of the universe has looked upon hopelessly sinful people and sent His Son, God in the flesh, to bear His wrath against sin on the cross and to show His power over sin in the resurrection so that all who trust in Him will be reconciled to God forever.
David Platt
God waits only the separation of spirit from flesh to crown us with a full reward. Why, then, should we ever sink overwhelmed with distress, when life is so soon over, and death is so certain an entrance to happiness — to glory?
Charlotte Bronte
With stand-up, I can have an idea, go down the street to a comedy club and work on it, flesh it out, book a venue, people will come, then film it. I do all that myself; I never have to answer to anybody.
Aziz Ansari
Whatever requires an undue amount of thought or trouble or involves a large expenditure of effort and causes our whole life to revolve, as it were, around solicitude for the flesh must be avoided by Christians.
Saint Basil
A sick thought can devour the body’s flesh more than fever or consumption.
Guy de Maupassant
Warriorship is so tender, without skin, without tissue, naked and raw. It is soft and gentle. You have renounced putting on a new suit of armor. You have renounced growing a thick, hard skin. You are willing to expose naked flesh, bone and marrow to the world.
Chogyam Trungpa
The earth affords a lavish supply of richess of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter; only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass.
I am always surprised by people who speak of faith as if it happens in the air somewhere. Our bodies are God’s best way of getting to us. Revelation begins in the flesh.
Barbara Brown Taylor
… people misunderstood death, they died not of too little life but of too much life, that as the skin withered and the future grew short it was the past that took on flesh, until ultimately the sheer accumulation of experience and memory became too heavy to carry.
Dorothy Gilman
It is highly dangerous to receive the truths of the Bible with human wisdom, for this is a hidden and subtle method which invariably causes a believer to perfect with his flesh the work of the Holy Spirit.
Watchman Nee
What I love about Goofy is the flesh on his cheeks. You can almost feel it.
John Lasseter
I ain’t no veggie, like my flesh to the bone, alive and licking on your ice cream cone.
Alice Cooper
What broke in a man when he could bring himself to kill another? What broke when he could bring himself to thrust down the knife into the warm flesh, to bring down the axe on the living head, to cleave down between the seeing eyes, to shoot the gun that would drive death into the beating heart?
Alan Paton
Why a tender curb upon the youthful burning boy?
Why a little curtain of flesh on the bed of our desire?
William Blake
There are people who you see on screen and think, ‘Wow, that’s a slim person,’ and in the flesh they look nearly dead.
Romola Garai
I love love. Growing up, I always thought it was a state, and I’d wait for it to appear. Now I think it’s an activity, a skill, something you strive to create. A constant conversation between emotion and imagination and flesh.
Greg Saunier
I think that at the supper I neither receive flesh nor blood, but bread and wine; which bread when it is broken, and the wine when it is drunken, put me in remembrance how that for my sins the body of Christ was broken, and his blood shed on the cross.
Jane Grey
It’s simply the way things are when people come together out of hurt rather than happiness. When you try to use people as band-aids you merely reinfect the wound, and every moment you spend with them is like a speck of glass working itself deeper into your flesh.
Michael Marshall Smith
after all the work of the philosophers on his soul and the doctors on his body, what can we really say we know about a man? That he is, when all is said and done, just a passage for liquids and solids, a pipe of flesh.
Lawrence Durrell
This really revolutionary revolution is to be achieved, not in the external world, but in the souls and flesh of human beings.
Aldous Huxley
She who is really a wife, one in heart, flesh, and bone, must follow wherever he leads, in whom her life, her strength, her pride, and happiness are centered.
Honore de Balzac
The safest and most suitable form of penance seems to be that which causes pain in the flesh but does not penetrate to the bones, that is, which causes suffering but not sickness.
Saint Ignatius
If we take seriously the word-flesh Christology of Chalcedon (i.e., the doctrine that Christ is fully human and fully divine) and view Christ as the telos toward which God is drawing the whole of creation, then any view of the sciences that leaves Christ out of the picture must be seen as fundamentally deficient.
William A. Dembski
Scars are medals branded on the flesh, and your enemies will be frightened by them because they are proof of your long experience of battle.
Paulo Coelho
We are not just a skin-encapsulated ego, a soul encased in flesh. We are each other and we are the world.
Charles Eisenstein
The Godhead consists of three separate, distinct personages who are one in purpose. The Father and the Son have tangible bodies of flesh and bone while the Holy Ghost is a personage of spirit.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
If men are in a state in which they find it hard to be weaned from their own ways and choose rather to serve the pleasures of the flesh than to serve the Lord, and refuse to accept the Gospel life, there is no common ground between me and them.
Saint Basil
He will spit you and roast you with rosemary, and we will all sample your flesh tonight. Tomorrow you will be shat out into the snow. Your diplomacy is bold and edgy, sir.
Kevin Hearne
Every individual who eats flesh food, whether an animal is killed expressely for him or not, is supporting the trade of slaughtering and contributing to the violent deaths of harmless animals.
Philip Kapleau
God is not a Power residing in the clouds. He is an unseen Power residing within us and nearer to us than finger nails to the flesh.
Mahatma Gandhi
Every syllable that can be struck out is pure profit, and every page that can be economised is a five-per-cent dividend. Nature rebels against this rule; the flesh is weak, and shrinks from the scissors; I groan in retrospect over the weak.
Henry Adams
Perhaps we invented the gods so that we could put the blame on them. They gave us permission to eat flesh. They gave us permission to play with unclean things. It’s not our fault, it’s theirs. We’re just their children.
J. M. Coetzee
After many months of writing, it occured to me that it might be possible to photograph, in the flesh, what I was attempting to capture in words. I bought a Rolleiflex camera and began to take pictures of objects or structures that were used and abused by human hands
Wright Morris
I venture to maintain that there are multitudes to whom the necessity of discharging the duties of a butcher would be so inexpressibly painful and revolting, that if they could obtain a flesh diet on no other condition, they would relinquish it forever.
William Edward Hartpole Lecky
The antidote to the lust of the flesh is integrity.
Rick Warren
When the Pleiades and the wind in the grass are no longer a part of the human spirit, a part of very flesh and bone, man becomes, as it were, a kind of cosmic outlaw, having neither the completeness nor integrity of the animal nor the birthright of a true humanity.
Henry Beston
Now gae your wa’sTho’anes as gude As ever happit flesh and blude, Yet part we maunthe case sae hard is, Amang the writers and the bardies That lang they’ll brook the auld I trow, Or neibours cry,’Weel brook the new’.
Edna Ferber
It is my earnest hope, and indeed the hope of all mankind, that from this solemn occasion a better world shall emerge out of the blood and carnage of the past…
Douglas MacArthur
Roasting fish that’s encased inside a salt crust is a centuries-old method of ensuring moist, ultra-flavorful flesh.
Jonathan Miles
That is why the center of our faith isn’t just a book, but a history of Salvation, and above all, it’s about a person: Jesus Christ, the Word of God made flesh.
Pope Francis
The last faint spark
In the self-murdered heart, the wounds of the sad uncomprehending
The wounds of the baited bear,–
The blind and weeping bear whom the keepers beat
On his helpless flesh . . . the tears of the hunted hare.
Edith Sitwell
All flesh is not venison.
George Herbert
He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Paul the Apostle
They that are of the flesh cannot do the works of the Spirit, neither can they that are spiritual do the works of the flesh, even as faith cannot do the works of unbelief, nor unbelief the works of faith.
Ignatius of Antioch
Let the skin be like water, let the flesh hang from the bones.
Dharma Mittra
Stoning prophets and erecting churches to their memory afterwards has been the way of the world through the ages. Today we worship Christ, but the Christ in the flesh we crucified.
Mahatma Gandhi
This little piggy went to Hades This little piggy stayed home This little piggy ate raw and steaming human flesh This little piggy violated virgins And this little piggy clambered over a heap of dead bodies to get to the top
Neil Gaiman
I do find that when I see women who flesh out the television or film world and make it look more like the world I actually live in, I gravitate towards those characters.
Allison Tolman
In our world of sleek flesh and collagen, botox and liposuction, what we most fear is the dissolution of the body-mind, the death of the brain.
A. S. Byatt
We may well lie with what seems to be a woman of flesh and blood, and yet all the time it is only a devil in the shape of a woman.
Martin Luther
A genuine fast cleanses the body, mind and soul. It crucifies the flesh and to that extent sets the soul free.
Mahatma Gandhi
I just want to lose weight and get back to being my usual self. There’s too much flesh.
Shweta Menon
God is a lion that comes in the night. God is a hawk gliding among the stars– If all the stars and the earth, and the living flesh of the night that flows in between them, and whatever is beyond them Were that one bird. He has a bloody beak and harsh talons, he pounces and tears.
Robinson Jeffers
I really like watching myself a lot because it gives me an opportunity to see it from outside the flesh, and when I view it like that, I can be a lot more cynical and see the things that need to be attacked.
Lakeith Stanfield
Whatever distinguishes one lump of flesh from another when we’re alive, we’re all the same once we’re dead. Just used-up shells.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
When I write, I speak with ghosts for years, and I see images that are a little bit out of focus. I see faces, but the faces change. At the moment that it’s a real human being that’s flesh and bone, it changes a character. It’s much more precise and complex.
Jaco Van Dormael
Would you ascend to Heaven and bodiless dwell?
Or take your bodies honorless to Hell?
In Heaven you have heard no marriage is,
No white flesh tinder to your lecheries
John Crowe Ransom
Writing is my passion. It is a way to experience the ecstatic. The root understanding of the word ecstasy—“to stand outside”—comes to me in those moments when I am immersed so deeply in the act of thinking and writing that everything else, even flesh, falls away.
Bell Hooks
If sensuality were happiness, beasts were happier than men; but human felicity is lodged in the soul, not in the flesh.
Seneca the Younger
A thorn in the flesh is nothing compared to a thorn in the conscience.
Adrian Rogers
Flesh goes on pleasuring us, and humiliating us, right to the end.
Mignon McLaughlin
Lust is an immoderate wantonness of the flesh, a sweet poison, a cruel pestilence; a pernicious poison, which weakeneth the body of man, and effeminateth the strength of the heroic mind.
Francis Quarles
The stressful time is the blank page at the beginning. When you’re starting to see things being made flesh, and you’re able to respond to that flesh, that’s really exciting.
Jack Thorne
The Son of God came to dwell in human flesh for us in order that He might come to dwell in us by His Spirit.
Sinclair B. Ferguson
The Touchables, whether they are vegetarians or flesh-eaters, are united in their objection to eat cow’s flesh. As against them stand the Untouchables, who eat cow’s flesh without compunction and as a matter of course and habit.
B. R. Ambedkar
Rehearsing a play is making the word flesh. Publishing a play is reversing the process.
Peter Shaffer
No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home.
L. Frank Baum
Sometimes it felt like I was carrying pieces of human flesh back home with me, not negatives. It’s as if you are carrying the suffering of the people you have photographed.
Don McCullin
It is useless to subdue the flesh by abstinence, unless one gives up his irregular life, and abandons vices which defile his soul.
Benedict of Nursia
The flesh of king salmon, which varies in color from white to pink to red, has a high fat content, making it perfect for grilling.
Tom Douglas
Two meanings have our lightest fantasies,- One of the flesh, and of the spirit one.
James Russell Lowell
I like flesh. I do! Something to hold.
Antonio Banderas
His flesh took paleness from his bones.
Ray Bradbury
There goes a saying, and ’twas shrewdly said, ”Old fish at table, but young flesh in bed.
Alexander Pope
We get paid in flesh. Our audiences are sluts and whores, each and every one.
Nikki Sixx
In families there are frequently matters of which no one speaks, nor even alludes. There are no words for these matters. As the binding skeleton beneath the flesh is never acknowledged by us and, when at last it defines itself, is after all an obscenity.
Joyce Carol Oates
Remembrance of our kiss brings not your lips nor mine to mind. The flesh can only envy consumption so divine.
Vanna Bonta
The flesh is sweeter, where the creature has some chance for its life; for that reason, I always use a single ball, even if it be at a bird or a squirrel; besides, it saves lead, for, when a body knows how to shoot, one piece of lead is enough for all, except hard-lived animals.
James F. Cooper
Sometimes we make our alliances not by the shape and color of our flesh but by the convictions of our heart.
Neal Shusterman
And Loplop, bird superior, has transformed himself into flesh without flesh and will dwell among us.
Max Ernst
Nonviolence is not just abstention from war, fighting, or animal flesh. It is abstention from negative thoughts and negative speech.
Nathaniel Altman
I ask again, and I want a better answer, WHAT are you!” He demanded.”I told you before, a human rises with the sun, but I rise with the moon. I am a mere immortal soul that feasts on your fears and flesh.””Why won’t you answer my question correctly!
Miranda Leek
Outside the street’s on fire in a real death waltz between what’s flesh and what’s fantasy.
Bruce Springsteen
Being conscious of having done a wicked action leaves stings of remorse behind it, which, like an ulcer in the flesh, makes the mind smart with perpetual wounds; for reason, which chases away all other pains, creates repentance, shames the soul with confusion, and punishes it with torment.
We do not mark out any precise line to be followed in diet; but we do say that in countries where there are fruits, grains, and nuts in abundance, flesh food is not the right food for God’s people.
Ellen G. White
The body remembers, the bones remember, the joints remember, even the little finger remembers. Memory is lodged in pictures and feelings in the cells themselves. Like a sponge filled with water, anywhere the flesh is pressed, wrung, even touched lightly, a memory may flow out in a stream.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
A man’s got to take care of his family. You live in my house, you sleep your behind on my bedclothes, you put my food in your belly because you are my son; you are my flesh and blood, not because I like you. It is my duty to take care of you. I owe a responsibility to you.
James Earl Jones
Sex is the mysticism of a materialistic society – in the beginning was the Flesh, and the Flesh became Word… [it has] its own mysteries – this is my birth [control] pill; swallow it in remembrance of me!
Malcolm Muggeridge
It is time that the Protestant Church, the Church of the Son, should be one again with the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of the Father. It is time that man shall cease, first to live in the flesh, with joy, and then, unsatisfied, to renounce and to mortify the flesh.
D. H. Lawrence
Just as there exists in writing a literal truth and a poetic truth, there also exists in a human being a literal anatomy and a poetic anatomy. One, you can see; one, you cannot. One is made of bones and teeth and flesh; the other is made of energy and memory and faith. But they are both equally true.
Elizabeth Gilbert
Want and wealth equally harden the human heart, as frost and fire are both alien to the human flesh. Famine and gluttony alike drive away nature from the heart of man.
Theodore Parker
The word of the oldest of the old of our peoples didn’t stop. It spoke the truth, saying that our feet couldn’t walk alone, that our history of pain and shame was repeated and multiplied in the flesh and blood of the brothers and sisters of other lands and skies.
Subcomandante Marcos
I can exchange opinion with any neighbouring mind,
I have as healthy flesh and blood as any rhymer’s had,
But O! my Heart could bear no more when the upland caught the wind;
I ran, I ran, from my love’s side because my Heart went mad.
William Butler Yeats
Either the soul is immortal and we shall not die, or it perishes with the flesh and we shall not know that we are dead. Live, then, as if you were eternal.
Andre Maurois
The happiness promised us in Christ does not consist in outward advantages-such as leading a joyous and peaceful life, having rich possessions, being safe from all harm, and abounding with delights such as the flesh commonly longs after. No, our happiness belongs to the heavenly life!
John Calvin
And all men are ready to pass judgement on the priest as if he was not a being clothed with flesh, or one who inherited a human nature.
John Chrysostom
And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones To execute judgment upon all, And to destroy all the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.
If the mind is willing, the flesh could go on and on without many things.
Sun Tzu
Long years must pass before the truths we have made for ourselves become our very flesh.
Paul Valery
I wanted to imbue Ziggy with real flesh and blood and muscle, and it was imperative that I find Ziggy and be him.
David Bowie
She worked her toes into the sand, feeling the tiny delicious pain of the friction of tiny chips of silicon against the tender flesh between her toes. That’s life. It hurts, it’s dirty, and it feels very, very good.
Orson Scott Card
I groan daily under a body of sin and corruption. Oh for the time when I shall drop this flesh, and be free from sin!
Charles Spurgeon
People used to say to my friend Mary, a quadriplegic, ‘You still have your mind.’ She would say, ‘I still have my body.’ The world tells me to divorce myself from my flesh, to live in my head. … I didn’t want to be fleshless.
Anne Finger
Mayonnaise, like hollandaise, was invented by the French to cover up the flavor of spoiled flesh, stale vegetables, rotten fish. Beware the sauce! Where food comes beslobbered with an elegant slime you may well suspect the integrity of the basic ingredients.
Edward Abbey
While most individuals use the flesh of the coconut in their cooking, coconut water and oil are also known to have numerous health benefits.
Marcus Samuelsson
The Child, the Lord Jesus Christ . . . Word in our flesh, Wisdom in infancy, Power in weakness, and in true Man, the Lord of Majesty.
Pope Leo I
What happened was simple, even banal: I became naked, died, lost parts of my flesh and most of my ego along with a few illusions such as a belief in the uniqueness of my personal scrap of consciousness and the cosmic importance therof, and went on from there.
MacDonald Harris
It was love that motivated His self-emptying, that led Him to become a little lower than angels, to be subject to parents, to bow His head beneath the Baptist’s hands, to endure the weakness of the flesh, and to submit to death even upon the cross
Bernard of Clairvaux
But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy.
Thus is the fruit of the Earth taken, its flesh torn. Thus is it given over standing, toward rot. It is the principle of corruption, the death of what is, the birth of what is to be. You are wine.
Richard Selzer
I can smell burning flesh… and I hope to God it’s human.
Steven Morrissey
A decade of cutting away dead flesh, cauterizing old scars ripped open over and over and still it is not enough.
Adrienne Rich
Here I am, a bundle of past recollections and future dreams, knotted up in a reasonably attractive bundle of flesh. I remember what this flesh has gone through; I dream of what it may go through.
Sylvia Plath
Let no man despise the oracles of books! A book is a dead man, a sort of mummy, embowelled and embalmed, but that once had flesh and motion and a boundless variety of determinations and actions.
William Godwin
Are men truly such idiots that they cannot resist two orbs of flesh?
R.L. LaFevers
The flesh is a worse enemy than the devil himself.
Isaac Ambrose
To be united to God in unity of person was not fitting to human flesh, according to its natural endowments, since it was above his dignity; nevertheless, it was fitting that God, by reason of his infinite goodness, should unite it to himself for human salvation.
Thomas Aquinas
I may be just an empty flesh terminal reliant on technology for all my ideas, memories and relationships, but I am confident that all of that everything that makes me a unique human being is still out there somewhere, safe in a theoretical storage space owned by giant, multinational corporations.
Stephen Colbert
Nothing is more democratic, less judgmental, than water. Water doesn’t care whether flesh is withered or fresh; it caresses aged flesh and firm flesh with equal love.
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
Flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone, I here, though there, yet both but one.
Anne Bradstreet
For the first time I heard shots fired in anger, heard bullets strike flesh or whistle through the air.
Winston Churchill
Cordial love of the neighbor does not consist in feelings. This love flows not from a heart of flesh but from the heart of our will.
Jane Frances de Chantal
The flesh would shrink and go, the blood would dry, but no one believes in his mind of minds or heart of hearts that the pictures do stop.
Saul Bellow
I don’t know what a scoundrel is like, but I know what a respectable man is like, and it’s enough to make one’s flesh creep.
Joseph de Maistre
Celibacy goes deeper than the flesh.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Time spent in a casino is time given to death, a foretaste of the hour when one’s flesh will be diverted to the purposes of the worm and not of the will.
Rebecca West
Real people are made out of a whole lot of things-flesh, bone, blood, nerves, stuff like that. Literary people are made out of words.
Thomas C Foster
When we eat factory-farmed meat we live, literally, on tortured flesh. Increasingly, that tortured flesh is becoming our own.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Once in a lifetime, perhaps, one escapes the actual confines of the flesh. Once in a lifetime, if one is lucky, one so merges with sunlight and air and running water that whole eons, the eons that mountains and deserts know, might pass in a single afternoon without discomfort.
Loren Eiseley
Beauty is equal parts flesh and imagination: we imbue it with our dreams, saturate it with our longings.
Nancy Etcoff
Katya is literally my flesh and blood. Best friend status.
Trixie Mattel
In considering found that the papists did not deny him to be come in the flesh, nor we did not deny him – who then was antichrist? Was the Turk antichrist only?
Anne Hutchinson
Hark, how chimes the passing bell! There’s no music to a knell; All the other sounds we hear, Flatter, and but cheat our ear. This doth put us still in mind That our flesh must be resigned, And, a general silence made, The world be muffled in a shade.
James Shirley
The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they’re going to do better. That’s why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There’s nobody I don’t say that to.
Ben Carson
We must accept what science tells us, that man was born from the earth. But, more logical than the scientists who lecture us, we must carry this lesson to its conclusion: that is to say, accept that man was born entirely from the world – not only his flesh and bones but his incredible power of thought.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Once again the absurdity of my inner thoughts overwhelms me, and I want to crawl out of my skin, escape my ugly, awkward flesh and be a skeleton, naked and anonymous.
Isaac Marion
It will not out of the flesh that is bred in the bone.
John Heywood
A characteristic of the flesh is its fickleness: it alternates between Yes and No and vice versa. But the will of God is: “Walk not according to the flesh (not even for a moment) but according to the Spirit.”
Watchman Nee
Fish marreth the water, and flesh doth dress it
John Florio
I want paint to work as flesh… my portraits to be of the people, not like them. Not having a look of the sitter, being them … As far as I am concerned the paint is the person. I want it to work for me just as flesh does.
Lucian Freud
the heart,
this child of myself that resides in the flesh,
this ultimate signature of the me, the start
of my blindness and sleep, builds a death crГЁche.
Anne Sexton
Throughout much of our lives, our association with the temporary has risen. This transitory body, a sack of bones and flesh, is considered erroneously as our true body and we have accepted this temporary condition as conclusive.
George Harrison
For me it is the virgin birth, the Incarnation, the resurrection which are the true laws of the flesh and the physical. Death, decay, destruction are the suspension of these laws. I am always astonished at the emphasis the Church puts on the body. It is not the soul she says that will rise but the body, glorified.
Flannery O’Connor
The flesh, alas, is sad, and I have read all the books.
Stephane Mallarme
The flesh had infinity in it. I must know every inch by touch yet every inch renewed its mystery the instant my hand moved on. Delightful endless futility.
Glen Duncan
A press card does not provide you with an invisible shield. You’re flesh and blood.
Jessica Savitch
Love is a funny thing, isn’t it? The presence of it can bring you to save a foe, the absence of it can make you hurt your own flesh.
Stefanie Schneider
The world is your oyster. Yes, but in that oyster is the pearl; and to get to the pearl one has to first discard the shell and the flesh.
Ian Gardner
Jesus took His flesh from the flesh of Mary
Saint Augustine
The lust of the flesh directs these desires [of personal union], however, to satisfaction of the body, often at the cost of a real and full communion of persons.
Pope John Paul II
A role model in the flesh provides more than inspiration; his or her very existence is confirmation of possibilities one may have every reason to doubt, saying, “Yes, someone like me can do this.”
Sonia Sotomayor
Needle and thread flesh and bone Spit and sinew, heartbreak is home. Your suture lines, they sparkle like diamonds Bright stars to light my confinement “Stitch.
Gayle Forman
Meat is necessary when there is hard physical work to be done, or in a very cold climate, or when edible plants cannot be found…Animal flesh provides all the substances we need, both for the intensive working of our organism and for maintaining a normal temperature in cold climates.
G. I. Gurdjieff
Because sometimes that is the only way to remember what is in your bones. You must peel off your skin, and that of your mother, and her mother. Until there is nothing. No scar, no skin, no flesh. -An-mei
Amy Tan
Sexual pessimism and hostility toward the pleasures of the flesh are a legacy from the ancient world which Christianity has preserved in a special measure to this day.
Uta Ranke-Heinemann
So long as lust, whether of the world or flesh, smells sweet in our nostrils, so long we are loathsome to God.
Charles Caleb Colton
We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones. Any nobleness begins at once to refine a man’s features, any meanness or sensuality to imbrute them.
Henry David Thoreau
Teeth of winter, sinking into my flesh, my own clacking against each other like knitting needles, and I wish they’d knit a heavy shawl around my shoulders before widening into a yawn. Why do I always yawn when I’m cold?
Karen Elizabeth Gordon
If we didn’t have strong feelings, how could we love or fight? When our flesh is cut, we bleed. When our heart is broken, we cry. There’s nothing wrong with that. It only becomes a problem when it gets in the way of what you have to do. You can’t crumble when others are counting on you.
Robert Liparulo
Don King is a hip exploiter, an intelligent flesh peddler
Larry Holmes
Every atom of your flesh is as dear to me as my own: in pain and sickness it would still be dear.
Charlotte Bronte
I see the emphasis on a lot of ideas and I know that’s directed at me. [Megan Chance] come up with an idea, hone it, and write it. I come up with thirty ideas, flesh each one out, research each one, come up with characters, and then decide I don’t like it.
Megan Chance
The fact is that Mike Tyson bit through my trousers and took a significant piece of flesh out of my thigh.
Lennox Lewis
Technology is fine. . ., but that popular vision of the future, where you plug somebody in and leave them there and they don’t get out and interact with actual flesh-and-blood humans – you know the answer before I say it – that’s not good.
Dennis Miller
Vexation of spirit is a waste of time Negative thinking, don’t you waste your thoughts Verbal conflict is a waste of word Physical conflict is a waste of flesh People will always be who they want And that’s what really makes the world go round Unconditional love is scarce.
Damian Marley
A satirist is a man whose flesh creeps so at the ugly and the savage and the incongruous aspects of society that he has to express them as brutally and nakedly as possible in order to get relief.
John Dos Passos
My great religion is a belief in the blood, the flesh, as being wiser than the intellect. We can go wrong in our minds. But what our blood feels and believes and says, is always true. The intellect is only a bit and a bridle.
D. H. Lawrence
We were supposed to grow old together, Dolores. Have kids. Take walks under old trees. I wanted to watch the lines etch themselves into your flesh and know when each and every one of them appeared. Die together.
Dennis Lehane
There is one Physician, of flesh and of spirit, originate and unoriginate, God in man, true Life in death, son of Mary and son of God, first passible and then impassible: Jesus Christ our Lord.
Ignatius of Antioch
This sanguine coward, this bed-presser, this horseback-breaker, this huge hill of flesh!
William Shakespeare
We are resident inside with the machinery, a glimmering spread throughout the apparatus. We exist with a wind whispering inside and our moon flexing. Amid the ducts, inside the basilica of bones. The flesh is a neighborhood, but not the life.
Jack Gilbert
Douglas MacArthur
Obamas finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They dont even really inspire. They elevate. . . . He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh . . . Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves.
Ezra Klein
I would be very, very strong on the debt limit. And I would be asking for a very big pound of flesh if I were the Republicans. And the problem with the Republicans, they have two sides. The smaller side is very strong and the other side is always agreeing and, you know, you can’t do that.
Donald Trump
…to kill animals for the purpose of feeding on their flesh is one of the most deplorable and shameful infirmities of the human state
Alphonse de Lamartine
Nature has made us passive, and to suffer is our lot. While we are in the flesh every man has his chain and his clog; only it is looser and lighter to one man than to another, and he is more at ease who takes it up and carries it than he who drags it.
Seneca the Younger
Every child was taught from his cradle that money was Mammon, the chief agent of the flesh and the devil. As he grew up it was his duty as a Christian and a gentleman to appear to despise filthy lucre, whatever his secret opinion of it might be.
Rebecca Harding Davis
I looked at [Goering eating sausage] and I knew that what they say was true: that pigs eat the flesh of their own.
Adolf Hitler
Sing, my tongue, the Saviour’s glory, Of His Flesh, the mystery sing; Of the Blood, all price exceeding, Shed by our Immortal King, Destined, for the world’s redemption, From a noble Womb to spring.
Thomas Aquinas
No Hindu community, however low, will touch cow’s flesh. On the other hand, there is no community which is really an Untouchable community which has not something to do with the dead cow. Some eat her flesh, some remove the skin, some manufacture articles out of her skin and bones.
B. R. Ambedkar
UV is bad for molecules because its high energy breaks the bonds between a molecule’s constituent atoms. That’s why UV is bad for you, too: it’s always best to avoid things that decompose the molecules of your flesh.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
You like orchids?… Nasty things. Their flesh is too much like the flesh of men, their perfume has the rotten sweetness of corruption.
William Faulkner
As an actor, my body is my tool to flesh out the roles I play.
What part of us feels pleasure? Is it our hand, our arm, our flesh, or our blood? It must obviously be something immaterial.
Blaise Pascal
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
White stockings I do not like. Why does anyone except a schoolgirl want to wear them? Nothing is more flattering to the legs than flesh color.
Elsa Schiaparelli
Without this heart attitude it is exceedingly difficult for us to accept the circumcision of the flesh. Every affection, desire, thought, knowledge, intent, worship, and work of the flesh must go to the cross.
Watchman Nee
God is weaving His tapestry according to his own grand design. All flesh is in His hands. We have no need to fear. We have no need to worry. Our imperative need is to be found doing our duty.
Gordon B. Hinckley
With the acting, it’s somebody else’s brainchild, and I’m just sort of helping flesh it out. There’s a special satisfaction to being the brains behind the operation.
Jack Black
Your mouth on mine our bridge to cross and serve where we would go. Utopia of sensations the flesh could never know.
Vanna Bonta
my pleasure
was in the strength of my back,
in my noble shoulders, the cool
smooth flesh cylinders of my arms.
Denise Levertov
The Devil has a great advantage against us inasmuch as he has a strong bastion and bulwark against us in our own flesh and blood.
Martin Luther
You can live with victory over the desires of your flesh. Habits, attitudes, desires, worries, and dissipation must yield as you exercise authority over your mind, emotions, and will.
Adrian Rogers
We must continue in prayer if we are to get an outpouring of the Spirit. Christ says there are some things we shall not get, unless we pray and fast, yes, “prayer and fasting.” We must control the flesh and abstain from whatever hinders direct fellowship with God.
Bonar Law
A man’s flesh is his own; the water belongs to the tribe.
Frank Herbert
Notice how people can sit for hours and talk to one another, but call us to pray and we find it to be great difficulty. Why is this so? 1) Lack of desperation (realizing our dependence on God), 2) The wrestlings of the flesh, 3) Lack of faith to believe not only that God hears us but that He will move on our behalf.
David Wallace
Although I adore the Italian High Renaissance, I’d rather look at Mannerism. The former is ordered, integrated, otherworldly, and grandiose; it leaves you feeling hungry for something flawed and of-the-flesh.
Jerry Saltz
The flesh is the upper surface of the unknown.
Victor Hugo
When I write a book, characters come to life for me somewhere at the back of my head. I strive to make them flesh and blood in an abstract way, in words.
Jhumpa Lahiri
Fasting stirs a hunger in your spirit that goes deeper than the temporary you experience in your flesh.
Jentezen Franklin
Nowadays, of course, flesh peddlers and scouting services identify the best athletes when they are still in junior high. Prospects are not allowed to sneak up on us.
Frank Deford
Oh Lion in a peculiar guise, Sharp Roman road to Paradise, Come eat me up, I’ll pay thy toll With all my flesh, and keep my soul.
Stevie Smith
In our world of sleek flesh and collagen, Botox and liposuction, what we most fear is the dissolution of the body-mind, the death of the brain.
A. S. Byatt
We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bone.
Henry David Thoreau
When a man dies, flesh is frayed and broken in the fire, but not his will.
A lover may be a shadowy creature, but husbands are made of flesh and blood.
Amy Levy
The better sort of Ishmaelites have been Christian for many centuries and will not publicly eat human flesh uncooked in Lent, without special and costly dispensation from their bishop.
Evelyn Waugh
Life is a phenomenon sui generis, a primal fact in its own right, like energy. Cut flesh or wood how you like, hack at them in a baffled fury—you cannot find life itself, you can only see what it built out of the lifeless dust.
Donald C. Peattie
The woman I am currently crazy about was a vegetarian for a year until I started dating her. As is the case with most vegetarians, she had never eaten properly prepared meat, only commercially packaged or otherwise abused flesh.
Steve Albini
My refusing to eat flesh occasioned an inconveniency, and I was frequently chid for my singularity.
Benjamin Franklin
For me, it was much more important to continue to learn my craft as an actor and get a bit of flesh on the bones.
Sarah Lancashire
O, here Will I set up my everlasting rest And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars From the world-wearied flesh
William Shakespeare
Be close to the poor and to those in need, so as to touch in their flesh the wounded flesh of Jesus. Please, draw near to them!
Pope Francis
The more flesh you show, the higher up the ladder you go.
Jerry Hall
In America all too few blows are struck into flesh. We kill the spirit here, we are experts at that. We use psychic bullets and kill each other cell by cell.
Norman Mailer
Art is a spirit seeking flesh but finding words.
Joseph Brodsky
But honestly… I just don’t know what anyone’s thinking. To me, that’s scarier than any half-rotten ghoul trying to eat my flesh.
Robert Kirkman
I rather like the World. The Flesh is pleasing and the Devil does not trouble me.
Elbert Hubbard
In a way, I was almost happy to see her. The worst part of me, out in the flesh. Blinking back at me in the dim light, daring me to call her a name other than my own.
Sarah Dessen
Nietzche . . . he was a confirmed Life Force worshipper. It was he who raked up the Superman, who is as old as Prometheus; and the 20th century will run after this newest of the old crazes when it gets tired of the world, the flesh, and your humble servant.
George Bernard Shaw
Oh, yes. I’d do it all again; the spirit is willing yet; I feel the same desire to do the work but the flesh is weak. It’s too bad that our bodies wear out while our interests are just as strong as ever.
Susan B. Anthony
Often in this our life do we begin by cursing men and end by loving them. A sense of the common fallibility of all flesh makes us kin. No man is lovable who is invincible.
Neville Cardus
I have one thing that counts, and that is my heart; it burns in my soul, it aches in my flesh, and it ignites my nerves: that is my love for the people and Peron.
Evita Peron
God takes out your heart of flesh, and gives you a heart of stone.
Hilary Mantel
Nudity in the flesh doesn’t bother me. But having my mind uncovered – that scares the hell out of me.
Margot Kidder
The language of my love does not belong to human language, my human body does not touch the flesh of my love.
Paul Eluard
I was raised a Catholic. But I am not religious. In my work, I am interested in real flesh and blood.
Louise Bourgeois
I cried when I found out I was a finalist, I kind of went limp when they called my name. I felt like my spirit jumped out of my body, and I was just flesh – it was just amazing.
Naima Adedapo
Boy, it is not fun suffering in this body of weak flesh, but Jesus is straightening out all my crooked places.
Language is called the garment of thought: however, it should rather be, language is the flesh-garment, the body, of thought.
Thomas Carlyle
The entire Godhead, the Triune God, became flesh.
Witness Lee
Intense mutual erotic love, love which involves with the flesh all the most refined sexual being of the spirit, which reveals and perhaps even ex nihilo creates spirit as sex, is comparatively rare in this inconvenient world.
Iris Murdoch
If you decide to do comedy that involves risk, risk means risk, and you can’t complain of flesh wounds if you sit down at the table to play.
Sarah Silverman
Physicians are the cobblers, rather the botchers, of men’s bodies; as the one patches our tattered clothes, so the other solders our diseased flesh.
John Ford
He who commends the nature of the soul as the supreme good, and condemns the nature of the flesh as evil, at once both carnally desires the soul, and carnally flies the flesh, because he feels thus from human vanity, not from divine truth.
Saint Augustine
What would it take for me to eat human flesh? If that was the only way to stay alive, I would. I would eat anything.
Dominic Monaghan
They’re still in good shape, but I’m not flashing them anymore. I’m an old lady. I leave all the flesh to the kids.
Tina Turner
Sometimes from this hillside just after sunset The rim of the sky takes on a tinge Of the palest green, like the flesh of a cucumber When you peel it carefully.
Robert Hass
Warned by such evidences of their spiritual illness, believers profit by their humiliations. Robbed of their foolish confidence in the flesh, they take refuge in the grace of God. And when they have done so, they experience the nearness of the divine protection which is to them a strong fortress (Ps 30:6-7).
John Calvin
Christ, by highest heaven adored. Christ, the everlasting Lord, Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of a virgin’s womb. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail the incarnate Deity! Pleased as Man with man to dwell; Jesus, our Immanuel!
Charles Wesley
Sure as I am breathing, sure as I’m sad I’ll keep this wisdom in my flesh I leave here believing more than I had This love has got no ceiling
Eddie Vedder
How much has to be explored and discarded before reaching the naked flesh of feeling.
Claude Debussy
It is remarkable, that persons who speculate the most boldly often conform with the most perfect quietude to the external regulations of society. The thoughts alone suffice them, without investing itself in the flesh and blood of action.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
In fact perhaps the only law in biology is that all flesh is mortal and all species become extinct eventually.
Richard Lewontin
I suppose meeting people whether it’s in real life and actually shaking their flesh and blood hand or shaking the mystical hand of the character all rub off on you in some way.
Janet Suzman
Watch it! It was robbed from other beings so it’s HOT ‘MERCHANDISE’ and it’s against the Law… the LAW OF DECENCY!!! Stay within this Law, steer clear of wool/pearl/silk/ fish bone/ fur/ivory/coral/ down/beeswax/honey/ cashmere/ lanolin/ feathers/ camel hair/flesh/milk/ eggs/ fish/ seafood/ other!!!
Adela Popescu
The ordinary man is ruined by the flesh lusting against the spirit; the scholar by the spirit lusting too much against the flesh.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
The Eucharist began at Bethlehem in Mary’s arms. It was she who brought to humanity the Bread for which it was famishing, and which alone can nourish it. She it was who took care of that Bread for us. It was she who nourished the Lamb whose life-giving Flesh we feed upon
Peter Julian Eymard
Our souls, piercing through the impurity of flesh, behold the highest heaven, and thence bring knowledge to contemplate the ever-during, glory and termless joy.
Walter Raleigh
In my dreams I gorge on chocolates, I roll in chocolates, and their texture is not brittle but soft as flesh, like a thousand mouths on my body, devouring me in fluttering small bites. To die beneath their tender gluttony seems the culmination of every temptation I have ever known.
Joanne Harris
People who care nothing about money probably exist or we wouldn’t hear so much about them. But I’ve never encountered one in the flesh.
Rae Foley
Look – I’m an African-American. I’m black. But I’m just looking at the character and trying to find his soul, his energy. If you can wipe away the blanket of skin and flesh that people tend to see, and look inside for the essence of the soul, then that’s the work I’m doing. That’s the work I always do.
Forest Whitaker
It is entirely the work of grace and a benefit conferred by it that our heart is changed from a stony one to one of flesh, that our will is made new, and that we, created anew in heart and mind, at length will what we ought to will.
John Calvin
Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of those who mutilate the flesh!
Paul the Apostle
Fasting cleanses the soul, raises the mind, subjects one’s flesh to the spirit, renders the heart contrite and humble, scatters the clouds of concupiscence, quenches the fire of lust, and kindles the true light of chastity.
Saint Augustine
We might say that the earth has the spirit of growth; that its flesh is the soil.
Leonardo da Vinci
If you make provision for the desires of the flesh and bear a grudge against your neighbor on account of something transitory, you worship the creature instead of the Creator.
Maximus the Confessor
The vows we take in the holy place bind us till we are purged of them at Inanda’s Kraal. Till then no blood must be shed and no flesh eaten. It was the fashion of our forefathers.
John Buchan
Well, it gives, certainly to my father, who is the one that suffered the most in our family, and understanding of how the ideals of a country are only as good as the people who give it flesh and blood.
George Takei
Eight days the light continued on its own: A miracle, they say, but not more so Than ordinary lives of flesh and bone, Consuming wicks burned ashen long ago.
Nick Gordon
Acedia is sorrow so complete that the flesh pervails completely over the spirit. You don’t just turn your back on the world, you turn your back on God. You don’t care, and you don’t care that you don’t care.
According to the laws and constitution of the people, which I [the Lord] have suffered to be established, and should be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh, according to just and holy principles.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
The question of historicity and actuality with regard to gods and unicorns is a relatively trifling matter which may be left to antiquarians and biologists, for both the god and the unicorn had a business to perform greater than any mere existence in the flesh could explain or provide a basis for.
Odell Shepard
No rescue boat can save the touches I left bobbing in the wild ocean of your flesh, but if they cut open your heart, like the belly of a shark, dumped its contents on a table—would there be any trace of me?
Jeffrey McDaniel
If not for the direct action of a John Brown and his comrades, America would still trade in the flesh of the black man.
Emma Goldman
At times I felt that the universe fabricated from the power of the imagination had stronger and more lasting contours than the blurred realm of the flesh-and-blood creatures around me.
Isabel Allende
My principal anguish, and the wellspring of all my joys and sorrows, has been the incessant merciless battle between the spirit and the flesh.
Nikos Kazantzakis
It’s extraordinary to look into a baby’s face and see a piece of your flesh and your spirit. It makes you realize you are a part of the human race.
Liam Neeson
In the heart of man, there is a constant conflict between the flesh and the spirit.
T. B. Joshua
I love the flesh. I’m a pagan. “Who are they who speak evil of the clay? The very stars are made of clay like mine!”
Jack London
We were all born robots. We were all born slaves to our sin. We did what the flesh and what the devil told us to do. For those of us that have been freed by Jesus, we don’t have to be robots.
Trip Lee
He that buys land buys many stones,
He that buys flesh buys many bones,
He that buys eggs buys many shells,
But he that buys good ale buys nothing else.
John Ray
He is our Father – the Father of our Spirits, and was once a man in mortal flesh as we are, and is now an exalted being.
Brigham Young
Drawing is the skeleton of what you do and color is its flesh.
Nicolas Poussin
And your very flesh shall be a great poem.
Walt Whitman
The nineteenth century lynching mob cuts off ears, toes, and fingers, strips off flesh, and distributes portions of the body as souvenirs among the crowd.
Ida B. Wells
It’s the way of all flesh, you know. Aging takes its toll. Like I said, it’s the way of all flesh. When the time came and he finally had to step down, the thing that kept him going disappeared.
Frank Sinatra, Jr.
It will be readily admitted that brown tints have never coursed beneath our skin; it will be discovered that yellow shines forth in our flesh, that red blazes, and that green, blue and violet dance upon it with untold charms, voluptuous and caressing.
Umberto Boccioni
The perfect way for an angler who loves to cook to show off his fish is serving it whole, fresh off the grill, with crispy skin and moist flesh. Problem is, that’s not usually how it happens.
Jonathan Miles
Being ‘one flesh’ in marriage means that the relationship is not the source of security, affirmation, control, or value. Those issues of identity need to be rooted in Christ.
Scott Perkins
Life is impermanent and in the face of that impermanence, cavort! Look death in the eye, tell him you’re as cute as a button, flash a little deviant guile his way, and tell him to go feast on somebody’s else’s sweet flesh.
Nancy Milford
The soul is a magician. Only living flesh hampers it.
Tanith Lee
While we too always seek other signs, other wonders, we do not realize that he is the real sign, God made flesh; he is the greatest miracle of the universe: all the love of God hidden in a human heart, in a human face.
Pope Benedict XVI
Consciousness is much more than the thorn, it is the dagger in the flesh.
Emil Cioran
No man is free who is a slave to the flesh.
Seneca the Younger

Monica Johnson
A single face turned upward toward all Time One flesh, one ecstasy, one peace.
Ray Bradbury
For never doubt that those souls who live least by the flesh feel themselves most defiled by its defilement.
Katharine Fullerton Gerould
I take with me Kentucky, embedded in my brain and heart, in my flesh and bone and blood. Since I am Kentucky, and Kentucky is part of me.
Jesse Stuart
Why should we be startled by death? Life is a constant putting off of the mortal coil – coat, cuticle, flesh and bones, all old clothes.
Henry David Thoreau
How many fears came between us? Earthquakes, diseases, wars where hell rained smoldering pus from skies made of winged death. Horror tore this world asunder. While inside the bleeding smoke and beyond the shredded weeping flesh we memorized tales of infinite good. -from The History Lesson
This God who, as the psalmist said, built His tabernacles in the sun, now establishes Himself in the very core of the flesh and the blood.
Francois Mauriac
This is who I am: a flyspeck of human vanity in a trillion miles of stone-dead interstellar space; a graceless lump of flesh and fear in a remote desert where nearly everything that I can see or touch is designed to hurt me.
S. C. Gwynne
Baseball and cricket are beautiful and highly stylized medieval war substitutes, chess made flesh, a mixture of proud chivalry and base-in both senses-greed.
John Fowles
Mysterious beings we seek from birth; what does that mean to me? Something we seek, and as we age it becomes more elusive, yet our spirit remains willing, but our flesh grows weak.
Anton Szandor LaVey
Catholicism is a matter of the body and the senses as much as it is a matter of the mind, precisely because the Word became flesh.
Robert Barron
Someone did a study of the three most-often-heard phrases in New York City. One is “Hey taxi.” Two is “What train do I take to get to Bloomingdales?” And three is “Don’t worry, it’s only a flesh wound.
David Letterman
A shared choice movement sees the fetus as the genes of a woman and the genes of a man; the flesh of the woman, the flesh of the man; the bone of a woman, the bone of a man; the responsibility of a woman, the responsibility of a man; the rights of a woman, the rights of a man. It desires a transition to equality.
Warren Farrell
God’s best is for the believer to take His Word that says he is healed, put that Word in his heart, confess it with his lips, and allow it to be medicine to his flesh.
Jerry Savelle
Roman Catholicism: a hundred million people bowing down before a flesh-hating, elderly celibate.
Barbara Ehrenreich
When media coverage sets up a binary opposition between “the accuser” and “the accused,” there is no longer a victim or even an alleged victim – a flesh and blood person who was harmed by the violent act of another.
Jackson Katz
Jealousy … is an affliction of the spirit which, unlike some sins of the flesh, gives no one any pleasure.
Muriel Spark
Fashion is in a terrible state. An overdose of too much flesh.
Geoffrey Beene
Even if plants were sentient, veganism would still be a moral imperative given that it takes many pounds of plants to produce one pound of flesh.
Gary L. Francione
If you could find a way to peel back the skin of this world so to speak, would you really see this supernatural reality that is greater? Is it true that we fight not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers? Every young person wants to know.
Ted Dekker
I don’t understand why people take Beyonce so seriously. You don’t feel like there’s a living, breathing person. It’s not flesh and blood. It’s just flesh and flesh.
Robert Hilburn
Every man is half God, half man; he is both spirit and flesh. That is why the mystery of Christ is not simply a mystery for a particular creed: It is universal.
Nikos Kazantzakis
Our need is so desperate an idea, a thing, a law can’t help us. It took one thing, the gift of gifts, God in the flesh, to rescue us.
Paul David Tripp
The New Age orgy: The flesh was willing but the spirit’s weak.
Edward Abbey
I am the flesh boat of my experiences, we all are , my feelings, thoughts, desires and dreams are captured in my body’s pliant cells, fastened onto my DNA.
Dorianne Laux
The savage bows down to idols of wood and stone, the civilized man to idols of flesh and blood
George Bernard Shaw
London is a labyrinth, half of stone and half of flesh.
Peter Ackroyd
Isn’t it true that the fault of birth rests somewhat on the child? I believe it’s we who led our parents on to bear us, and it’s our unborn children who make our flesh itch.
T. E. Lawrence
It is said that there are three sources of evil, “the world, the flesh, and the Devil”; but the world and the flesh would be innocent were it not for the Devil.
Peter Kreeft
I like thinking about the fragility of the human flesh and our bodies – our decay and eventual death.
David LaChapelle
The savages are upon me and I feel my flesh burn beneath the teeth of their indifference.
I am the family face; flesh perishes, I live on.
Thomas Hardy
Romans 6 – Our flesh is the instrument that Satan works through. When we say no to the flesh, we say no to the devil.
Joyce Meyer
The stones tear like flesh, rather than breaking. Although what happens is violent, it is a violence that is in stone. A tear is more unnerving than a break.
Andy Goldsworthy
When I was in Thailand, I went into the up-country because Marco Polo didn’t get down into the flesh pots of Bangkok because they didn’t exist in those days.
Gary Jennings
The more fodder, the more flesh; the more flesh, the more manure; the more manure, the more grain.
Justus von Liebig
I was reduced to pure concept. My flesh had dissolved; my form had dissipated. I floated in space. Liberated of my corporeal being, but without dispensation to go anywhere else.I was adrift in the void. Somewhere across the fine line separating nightmare from reality.
Haruki Murakami
At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless; Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is.
T. S. Eliot
So long as my body lives, and yours — we are one flesh,” he whispered, “And when my body shall cease, my soul will still be yours. Claire — I swear by my hope of heaven, I will not be parted from you.
Diana Gabaldon
The source of creation is within you. You can be just a piece of flesh, or you can be the Creator himself – this is the choice and potential you have.
Jaggi Vasudev
[B]ut it is only what happens, when they die, to all mortals. The sinews no longer hold the flesh and the bones together, and once the spirit has let the white bones, all the rest of the body is made subject to the fire’s strong fury, but the soul flitters out like a dream and flies away.
At the cross God wrapped his heart in flesh and blood and let it be nailed to the cross for our redemption.
E. Stanley Jones
But we have nothing of the Spirit except through regeneration. Everything, therefore, which we have from nature is flesh.
John Calvin
Boswell’s Johnson is the word made flesh… an extemporaneous man talking himself into the thick of every occasion (in a world ofoccasions if nothing else) and therefore no monument at all but all that can be saved of a man alive in the pages of a book.
Marvin Mudrick
The heart of vegetarians is healed sooner than those of flesh-eaters.
Virchand Gandhi
Water and stone Flesh and bone Night and morn Rose and thorn Tree and wind Heart and mind
Juliet Marillier
My flesh was burning where the skin was scraped off my knees, and I was afraid that I couldn’t be alive anymore with so much pain, and at the same time I knew I was alive because it hurt. I was afraid that death would find its way into me through this open knee and I quickly covered my knee with my hands.
Herta Muller
The Lord was Baptized, not to be cleansed Himself, but to cleanse the waters, so that those waters, cleansed by the flesh of Christ which knew no sin, might have the power of Baptism.
I had not taken a bath in a year nor changed my clothes or removed them except to stick a needle every hour in the fibrous grey wooden flesh of heroin addiction. I did absolutely nothing.
William S. Burroughs
Human beings are made up of flesh and blood, and a miracle fiber called courage.
George S. Patton
Soft flesh is eaten by hard teeth.
Isaac Marion
In this horror of solitude, this need to lose his ego in exterior flesh, which man calls grandly the need for love.
Charles Baudelaire
The marquee scrolling across our minds trying to reinterpret life reads: “God-Against-Us.” This becomes the dominant lens through which our flesh interprets life. We no longer give our loving Father the benefit of the doubt. Instead, we view every event as conclusive proof that God is against us.
James MacDonald
I am a dumb piece of meat
and I rot everyday
my flesh gives a rotting smell
and people say it’s the smell of life
and they come to me
and watch me rot
and get happy and upset and annoyed and disgusted and maybe sometimes feel
but they don’t realize they are rotting too.
Daul Kim
When we hurt, God doesn’t always give us lots of words; he gives us the Word; the Word made flesh who is intimately acquainted with our grief and suffering. That’s what helps the most.
Joni Eareckson Tada
The poem is the dream made flesh, in a two-fold sense: as work of art, and as life, which is a work of art.
Henry Miller
A full-spectrum approach to human consciousness and behavior means that men and women have available to them a spectrum of knowing – a spectrum that includes, at the very least, the eye of flesh, the eye of mind, and the eye of spirit.
Ken Wilber
The flesh is willing to flatter itself, and many who now give themselves every indulgence, promise to themselves an easy entrance into life. THus men practice mutual deception on each other and fall asleep in wicked indifference.
John Calvin
I like to start my day with a glass of coconut water, some protein powder, and a mix of things – goji berries, flax seeds, hemp seeds, even the flesh of a coconut or anything with a lot of fibre. I often add bananas, or eggs – fried or boiled – to my breakfast.
Nargis Fakhri
You know, so I was a weird eccentric kid but I did believe in the power of the word and of the word being made flesh I suppose, which again I suppose came from my temperament as well as my upbringing.
Thomas Keneally
But virtue too, as well as vice, is clad in flesh and blood.
Edmund Waller
Tita knew through her own flesh how fire transforms the elements, how a lump of corn flour is changed into a tortilla, how a soul that hasn’t been warmed by the fire of love is lifeless, like a useless ball of corn flour.
Laura Esquivel
And from the first declension of the flesh
I learnt man’s tongue, to twist the shapes of thoughts
Into the stony idiom of the brain.
Dylan Thomas
I don’t believe in death, neither in flesh nor in spirit.
Bob Marley
O Death, what are thou? nurse of dreamless slumbers freshening the fevered flesh to a wakefulness eternal.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
You need to create a place where young students can flesh out their business plans and further develop their research projects and then have a fund to help students get started in their businesses.
Jean-Philippe Courtois
If it is true that men have souls that do survive them, he went on, ignoring me, and if those souls are born again to life, you need not worry that my ghost will haunt you. I’ll haunt you in the flesh, instead.
Susanna Kearsley
We may love to say many things, but if these are not uttered in the Holy Spirit it is better to say nothing. The flesh can conjure up many plans and methods and be full of expectations. The righteousness of the flesh is as abhorrent as its sin we must always maintain God’s view of the flesh.
Watchman Nee
Beauty is momentary in the mind — The fitful tracing of a portal; But in the flesh it is immortal. The body dies; the body’s beauty lives. So evenings die, in their green going, A wave, interminably flowing.
Wallace Stevens
If you look closely at any face, you’ll start to see that different areas of the flesh tones are tinged with four other colors – red, green, purple and yellow.
Doug Dawson
One flesh. Or if you prefer, one ship. The starboard engine has gone. I, the port engine, must chug along somehow till we make harbour. Or rather, till the journey ends.
C. S. Lewis
What deity in the realms of dementia, what rabid god decocted out of the smoking lobes of hydrophobia could have devised a keeping place for souls so poor as is this flesh. This mawky worm-bent tabernacle.
Cormac McCarthy
Pleasure and guilt are synonymous terms in the language of the monks, and they discovered, by experience, that rigid fasts, and abstemious diet, are the most effectual preservatives against the impure desires of the flesh.
Edward Gibbon
I’m used to everything digital – the pictures, the avatars of the person, the profiles – so when I get to see someone in the flesh, it’s really nice.
Michelle Phan
Jesus did not bathe this planet with his blood to have you serve the world, the flesh, and the devil. He died to make you holy. You are not your own. First Corinthians 6:20 says ‘For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.’
Adrian Rogers
We are opposed to all cruelty, so as advocates of non-violence, opponents of oppression, people who abhor the cruelty inherent in slaughtering we say the only ethical way to consume flesh is to pick up the carcass of an animal who has died naturally or been killed accidentally, say by being hit by a car, and eat that.
Ingrid Newkirk
Antoine St. Exupery once mourned the loss of a man and the secret treasures that he held inside him. I loved Exupery; I will read him again, and he will talk to me, not being dead, or gone. Is that life after death — mind living on paper and flesh living in offspring? Maybe. I do not know.
Sylvia Plath
Ill health is also a blessing. The flesh and the ego are weakened and contemplation of God becomes easier.
One does not lash hat lies at a distance. The foibles that we ridicule must at least be a little bit our own. Only then will the work be a part of our own flesh. The garden must be weeded.
Paul Klee
You can’t put the past behind you. It’s buried in you; it’s turned your flesh into its own cupboard. Not everything remembered is useful but it all comes from the world to be stored in you.
Claudia Rankine
Style is as much under the words as in the words. It is as much the soul as it is the flesh of a work.
Gustave Flaubert
American Women: How they mortify the flesh in order to make it appetizing! Their beauty is a vast industry, their enduring allure a discipline which nuns or athletes might find excessive.
Malcolm Muggeridge
…there is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there.
Bret Easton Ellis
The human being is flesh and consciousness, body and soul; his heart is an abyss which can only be filled by that which is godly.
Olivier Messiaen
What is love? two souls and one flesh; friendship? two bodies and one soul.
Philibert Joseph Roux
Reagan was a flesh and blood version of any other mute national emblem, say the Statue of Liberty. Everyone knows what she represents, but no one would dream of asking her opinion.
Simon Hoggart
Repentance allows God’s mercy to come forth because it recognizes that the sin committed was against God. It also bares contriteness of the heart and the desire to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh so that particular sin will never be repeated.
Monica Johnson
Some people miss flesh as a drunkard misses his dram.
John Muir
The cross is God taking on flesh and blood and saying, Me too.
Rob Bell
There is only one ultimate and effectual preventative for the maladies to which flesh is heir, and that is death.
Harvey Cushing
But I believe the words entered me and changed me and still work in me. The words eat me and sustain me. And when I’m dead and in a box in the dark dark ground, and all my various souls have died and I am nothing but insensible bones, something in the marrow will still feel yearning, desire persisting beyond flesh.
Charles Frazier
A family spirit is not always synonymous with family life. Bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh makes for brothers, sisters and relatives, who may be as distant as strangers in a foreign land.
Mother Angelica
Daytime sleep is like the sin of the flesh; the more you have the more you want, and yet you feel unhappy, sated and unsated at the same time.
Umberto Eco
It [slavery] has exercised absolute mastery over the American Church. . . . With the Bible in their hands, her priesthood have attempted to prove that slavery came down from God out of heaven. They have become slaveholders and dealers in human flesh.
William Lloyd Garrison
Human cruelty knows no limits and that one needs immense courage and a will of iron to help others understand that animals are made of flesh and blood like us, that they suffer the same pains as us, that they deserve the same respect as us and that their continuous slaughter should not be part of human entertainment.
Brigitte Bardot
This is not love. It is a crime… You can’t look the other way just because you have not experienced domestic violence with your own flesh.
Salma Hayek
Someday you will read in the papers that Moody is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now. I was born of the flesh in 1837, I was born of the spirit in 1855. That which is born of the flesh may die. That which is born of the Spirit shall live forever.
Dwight L. Moody
None of the adults I knew ever touched in public, much less kneaded each others flesh.
Maureen Howard
You are not your body; you are the eye. When you see the spirit, you are free of the body. A human being is an eye – the rest is just flesh and bones. Whatever your eye sees, you are that.
Blessed the one who has kept the mastery of his eyelids and has not deceived himself with either mind or sense with regard to the skin of the flesh that after a little while oozes putrefaction.
Ephrem the Syrian
Words are sexier than flesh.
Clive Barker
The bicycle is a vehicle of revolution. It can destroy the tyranny of the automobile as effectively as the printing press brought down despots of flesh and blood. The revolution will be spontaneous, the sum total of individual revolts like my own. It may have already begun.
Daniel Behrman
Whosoever enjoys not this life, I count him but an apparition, though he wear about him the sensible affections of flesh. In these moral acceptions, the way to be immortal is to die daily.
Thomas Browne
But who can remember pain, once it’s over? All that remains of it is a shadow, not in the mind even, in the flesh. Pain marks you, but too deep to see. Out of sight, out of mind.
Margaret Atwood
Too much damned TV. Thinks he’s Sherlock Holmes.” “That’s professor Moriarty,” corrected Foaly. “Holmes, Moriarty, they both look the same with the flesh scorched off their skulls.
Eoin Colfer
She goes where she pleases. She appears unhoped for, uncalled for. She moves through doors and walls and windows. Her thoughts move through minds. She enters dreams. She vanishes and is still there. She knows the future and sees through flesh. She is not afraid of anything.
Rachel Klein
When we’re in a human body, we don’t care about universal collapse – instead, we care only about a meeting of the eyes, a glimpse of bare flesh, the caressing tones of a loved voice, joy, love, light, the orientation of a house plant, the shade of a paint stroke, the arrangement of hair.
David Eagleman
Don’t let despair mutate your flesh Look at my twisted stumps of thought See the fingers, listen to the voice I am slowly becoming the end of the line.
Henry Rollins
A scar is what happens when the word is made flesh.
Leonard Cohen
Just as a man cannot live in the flesh unless he is born in the flesh, even so a man cannot have the spiritual life of grace unless he is born again spiritually. This regeneration is effected by Baptism: “Unless a man is born again of water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (Jn 3:5)
Thomas Aquinas
Our faith is stronger than death, our philosophy is firmer than flesh, and the spread of the Kingdom of God upon the earth is more sublime and more compelling.
Dorothy Day
People who live in society have learnt how to see themselves, in mirrors, as they appear to their friends. I have no friends: is that why my flesh is so naked?
Jean-Paul Sartre
Something begins, begins; Starlit and sunlit, something walks abroad, In flesh and spirit and fire. Something is loosed to change the shaken world.
Stephen Vincent Benet
He with whom neither slander that gradually soaks into the mind, nor statements that startle like a wound in the flesh, are successful may be called intelligent indeed.
We want flesh, flesh for fantasy.
Billy Idol
Let us answer a book of ink with a book of flesh and blood.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As soon as I became old enough to make my dreams my reality, I became a firm believer that the subconscious and the world outside of our flesh and blood is essentially the truth.
Melissa Auf der Maur
If I vibrate with vibrations other than yours, must you conclude that my flesh is insensitive?
Claude Cahun
A lover may be a shadowy creature, but husbands are made of flesh and blood
Amy Levy
It hurts! It throbs with pain, the like of which I never felt the half! Mortal flesh would scream again . . . yet demon spirit bids to laugh
Alan Grant
The source of our actions resides in an unconscious propensity to regard ourselves as the center, the cause, and the conclusion of time. Our reflexes and our pride transform into a planet the parcel of flesh and consciousness we are.
Emile M. Cioran
I have never understood the clamour for waif-like women whose flesh acts merely as a thin veil for their bones – much as I would love to be thinner, I would hate to take it so far that I had no actual shape at all.
Clare Balding
My scars are numerous, my flesh is powerless, my enemy is dangerous, but my God is glorious and His grace is totally sufficient.
Matt Papa
My body is the rock and roll temple and my flesh, blood and body fluids are a communion to the people whether they like it or not
GG Allin
Somehow, we have come to the erroneous belief that we are all but flesh, blood, and bones, and that’s all. So we direct our values to material things.
Maya Angelou
Good food is a celebration of life, and it seems absurd to me that in celebrating life we should take life. That is why I don’t eat flesh. I see no need for killing.
Anna Thomas
When God moves, everybody will be blessed. If something is of the flesh, everybody will have a sick feeling. And if something is of the devil, it seems like the hair will stand up on your neck. That’s a simple way everyone can judge, whether they’ve got any spiritual discernment or not.
Kenneth E. Hagin
Thus was the King and the Lord of glory judged by man’s judgment, when manifest in flesh: far be it from any of his ministers to expect better treatment.
George Whitefield
The flesh, or human nature, is generally lazy and self-centered.
Joyce Meyer
Alice Stewart [is] a much underestimated scientist who has been an indomitable challenger of the establishment and a thorn in the flesh of the nuclear industry.
Joseph Rotblat
Perhaps, she says (Madame de la Rougierre), Other souls than human are sometimes born into the world & clothed in human flesh.
Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
It’s one thing to be helpless as one tries to lace a corset or to mount an elephant, quite another to be helpless as a bandit pushes a black steel knife against the flesh of your throat while his brother comes to join him.
John Speed
Let the mind beware, that though the flesh be bugged, the circumstances of existence are pretty glorious.
Jack Kerouac
Consciousness is much more than the thorn, it is the dagger in the flesh.
Emile M. Cioran
By Baptism we are made flesh of the Crucified
Pope Leo I
No, I’ll repine at death no more, But with a cheerful gasp resign To the cold dungeon of the ground These dying, withering limbs of mine. Let worms devour my wasting flesh, And crumble all my bones to dust:– My God shall raise my frame anew, At the revival of the just.
Isaac Watts
I think the fact that we don’t usually see ‘normal’ sized women on television has something to do with the reaction I had. I am quite tall – I am 5ft 8in and a definite size 12 – but you know this whole debate about my revealing too much flesh on TV has been blown out of proportion.
Holly Willoughby
Men and women yearners must realize their unity even while in the
flesh; not by communion of the flesh, but by the Will to Freedom from
the flesh and all the impediments it places in their way to perfect
Unity and Holy Understanding
Mikhail Naimy
As I descend the stairs, I can’t help brushing my fingers along the unblemished white marble walls. So cold and beautiful. Even in the Capitol, there’s nothing to match the magnificence of this old building. But there is no give to the surface – only my flesh yields, my warmth taken. Stone conquers people every time.
Suzanne Collins
The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they’re going to do better. That’s why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There’s nobody I don’t say that to.
Benjamin Carson
What do yo think human flesh tastes like?
Bill Kaulitz
Honor is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it.
it is good to be sitting some place in public at 2:30 in the afternoon without getting the flesh ripped from your bones.
Charles Bukowski
The redemption of Zion is more than the purchase or recovery of lands, the building of cities, or even the founding of nations. It is the conquest of the heart, the subjugation of the soul, the sanctifying of the flesh, the purifying and ennobling of the passions.
Orson F. Whitney
Even though I was young, I could see the pain of the flesh and the worth of the pain.
Amy Tan
I can’t take it y’all
I can feel the city breathin
Chest heavin, against the flesh of the evening
Sigh before we die like the last train leaving
Mos Def
Time is a vindictive bandit to steal the beauty of our former selves. We are left with sagging, rippled flesh and burning gums with empty sockets.
There is a difference between using a made-up name and using real people as pseudonyms. People are not costumes you can wear. They are flesh and blood.
Siri Hustvedt
I want paint to work as flesh.
Lucian Freud
Let the mouth also fast from disgraceful speeches and railings. For what does it profit if we abstain from fish and fowl and yet bite and devour our brothers and sisters? The evil speaker eats the flesh of his brother and bites the body of his neighbor.
Saint John Chrysostom
So if you want to have a great video game-based movie you have to keep the mood of the game, use the normal character setup – but you have to flesh out the story and provide more background for the characters.
Uwe Boll
We can know nothing till after this grave debate. The soul must withdraw, for this is not its hour. Now the knife must divide the flesh, and lay the ravage bare, and do its work completely.
Georges Duhamel
Leigh Bowery was actually quoted as saying, “Flesh is my most favorite fabric.” I’ve seen many a freak make a scene and go, but Leigh was a special kind of exhibitionist because he was dedicated and saw it as an art form.
Boy George
All flesh is one: what matter scores; Or color of the suit Or if the helmet glints with blue or gold? All is one bold achievement, All is fine spring-found-again-in-autumn day When juices run in antelopes along our blood, And green our flag, forever green…
Ray Bradbury
The bones and flesh and legal statistics are the garments worn by the personality, not the other way around.
Robert M. Pirsig
I’m interested in the history of ideas and how these ideas take on flesh and influence culture, and the church.
Kevin Vanhoozer
It’s not for me. I tried human flesh and it’s too salty for my taste.
Idi Amin
Should poor souls fear a shade or night,
Who came sure from a sea of light?
Or since those drops are all sent back
So sure to thee, that none doth lack,
Why should frail flesh doubt any more
That what God takes, He’ll not restore?
Henry Vaughan
Ash, ash —- You poke and stir. Flesh, bone, there is nothing there—— A cake of soap, A wedding ring, A gold filling. Herr God, Herr Lucifer Beware Beware. Out of the ash I rise with my red hair And I eat men like air.
Sylvia Plath
It was in His flesh that Christ walked among us and it is His flesh that He has given us to eat for our salvation; but no one eats of this flesh without having first adored it . . . and not only do we not sin in thus adoring it, but we would be sinning if we did not do so.
Saint Augustine
Though marriage makes man and wife one flesh, it leaves ’em still two fools.
William Congreve
Ah, that shows you the power of music, that magician of magician, who lifts his wand and says his mysterious word and all things real pass away and the phantoms of your mind walk before you clothed in flesh.
Mark Twain
When we kill animals to eat them they end up killing us because their flesh…was never intended for human beings, who are naturally herbivores.
William C. Roberts
Thou seest I have more flesh than another man, and therefore more frailty.
William Shakespeare
Freak is easily spooked. Flesh-eating monsters tend to scare him away. So do fireworks, clowns, and the smell of Sadie’s weird British Ribena drink. (Can’t blame him on that last one. Sadie grew up in London and developed some pretty strange tastes.
Rick Riordan
The camera should be used for a recording of life, for rendering the very substance and quintessence of the thing itself, whether it be polished steel or palpitating flesh.
Edward Weston
Flesh-eating by humans is unnecessary, irrational, anatomically unsound, unhealthy, unhygienic, uneconomic, unaesthetic, unkind and unethical. May I elaborate?
Helen and Scott Nearing
Envy makes people lonely, and brings them great suffering. It is horrible stuff to have in our flesh, and it is a sin we need to take deadly seriously.
Esther Smith
I mean the flesh, never fade! The flesh never leave the creation, see, because with that divine spirit the flesh cannot fade. If the spirit is weak then the flesh fade, seen?
Peter Tosh
Fear not of men because men must die. Mind over matter and soul before flesh.
Mos Def
What He was, He laid aside; what He was not, He assumed. He takes upon Himself the poverty of my flesh so that I may receive the riches of His divinity.
Gregory of Nazianzus
I see crosses at every turn. My flesh shudders over it, but my heart adores them. Yes, I hail you, crosses little and great, I hail you, and kiss your feet, unworthy of the honor of your shadow.
Saint Francis de Sales
…when we say we’re looking for a spiritual adviser, we’re really looking for someone to tell us what to do with our bodies. Decisions of the flesh. We forget to learn from pleasure as well as pain.
Anne Michaels
I hold that when a person dies / His soul returns again to earth; / Arrayed in some new flesh disguise / Another mother gives him birth / With sturdier limbs and brighter brain.
John Masefield
We were made to believe / our faces betrayed us. / Our bodies were loud / with yellow / screaming flesh / needing to be silenced / behind barbed wire.
Janice Mirikitani
His blood is black and boiling hot, he gurgles ghastly groans. He’ll cook you in his dinner pot, your skin, your flesh, your bones.
Jack Prelutsky
The flesh feeds on the Body and Blood of Christ that the soul may be fattened on God
All flesh is grass. and all its glory fades
Like the fair flower dishevell’d in the wind;
Riches have wings, and grandeur is a dream;
The man we celebrate must find a tomb,
And we that worship him, ignoble graves.
William Cowper
I have friends who have children, and they have told me how remarkable it is to have a new life that is a piece of your own flesh anf blood. But I –” “I realized that I didn’t love her because she was a piece of me, I loved her because she was a piece of you.
Julia Quinn
Cheat me not with time,
with the dull ache of flesh,
for all flesh turns,
even the loveliest
ankle and frail thigh,
to bitterest dust.
Hilda Doolittle
Sins of the flesh are nothing. They are maladies for physicians to cure, if they should be cured. Sins of the soul alone are shameful.
Oscar Wilde
If you love a Dream Woman … let her stay the divine Woman of the Dream. To awaken and clasp flesh and blood, no matter how delicately tender, and find that love has sped at the dawn is a misery too deep for tears.
William John Locke
I have a shoebox: for ideas, fragments, snatches of conversation I hear. I scrawl it down, throw the scraps in the box. Every time I start a new script I start picking through the pieces. Suddenly you get five pieces together and think: this is almost the first Act of a movie, if I flesh it out a bit.
Shane Black
The elderly are all someone’s flesh and blood and we cannot just shut them in a cupboard and hand over the responsibility for taking care of them to the state.
Simon Callow
What did a few ripples in the flesh matter when, all too soon, now or later, that flesh would be making its return journey to dust?
Gail Godwin
Books, I knew then and now, give body to our ideas and imaginations, make them flesh in the world; a bookstore is the city where our fleshed-out inner selves reside.
Lewis Buzbee
A lot of people talk about what the 1982 team did on the pitch but that side was so dear to Brazilian fans also because it featured players that supporters would see in flesh and bone on a regular basis, either at games or even on the streets. Now they basically only see the Selecao on the TV.
I am tired of the litany
of months, September October
I am tired of the way the seasons
keep changing, mimicking
the seasons of the flesh
which are real and finite.
Linda Pastan
It looks like half the enjoyment is just having Heaven in our hearts and Heaven in our Homes, feeling Heaven in our bodies in the thrilling love and love-making that we have here and now on Earth in those ecstatic orgasms of the Spirit and the flesh, but also looking forward to Heaven to come!
David Berg
Every night you go out there, you get hurt. It’s really the easiest way to say it. People can describe wrestling however they want to, but your body is flesh and bone, and it’s not meant to be slammed on wood and steel.
Matt Hardy
These days, newish art can be priced between $10,000 and $25,000. When I tell artists that a new painting by a newish artist should go for around $1,200, they look at me like I’m a flesh-eating virus.
Jerry Saltz
The great triad of enemies for Christian growth contain the world, the flesh, and the devil.
R. C. Sproul
Hey, Volusian, you haven’t been checking me out, have you?” He gave me his trademark bland stare. “I assure you, mistress, the only allure your bare flesh has for me is to remind me how easy it will be to slice open.” I laughed. If not for the fact he was actually serious, he’d be so much fun.
Richelle Mead
As you read or listen to God’s Word and spend time talking to Him in prayer, your spirit will eventually become stronger than your flesh.
Joyce Meyer
I speak of plurality of wives as one of the most holy principles that God ever revealed to man, and all those who exercise an influence against it, unto whom it is taught, man or woman will be damned, and they and all who will be influenced by them, will suffer the buffetings of Satan in the flesh.
Heber C. Kimball
We have been given God in our souls and Christ in our flesh. We have the power to believe where others deny, to hope where others despair, to love where others hurt.
Brennan Manning
I was freeborn according to the flesh; I am born of a father who was a decurion, but I sold my noble rank – I blush not to state it, nor am I sorry – for the profit of others. In short, I am a slave in Christ to a foreign nation for the unspeakable glory of the eternal life which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Saint Patrick
All creation begins with thought (“Proceeds from the Father”). All creation then moves to word (“Ask and you shall receive, speak and it shall be done unto you”). All creation is fulfilled in deed (“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us”).
Neale Donald Walsch
Consciousness has forced us into the paradoxical position of striving to be unself-conscious of what we are – hunks of spoiling flesh on disintegrating bones.
Thomas Ligotti
It is a fact that God wants to destroy every work of our flesh, but He never desires to destroy our personality. He takes no pleasure in transforming us into automata; rather He delights in having us cooperate with Him.
Watchman Nee
One night of love don’t make up for six nights alone. But I’d rather have one than none Lord, cause I’m flesh and bone.
Waylon Jennings
Although, the flesh is weak, the Spirit of God is always willing, and He makes us able.
Monica Johnson
The only good things I’ve seen emerge from a steamer are tamales, couscous, and dumplings – maybe the occasional artichoke or delicate fish fillet. But baby turnips with their tender greens still attached should be boiled in water as salty as the sea until their flesh is silky and soft.
Samin Nosrat
I use music as therapy. Whenever I’m feeling angry or needing some ‘me’ time, which is quite regularly, I’ll go and bang a piano or flesh out something on a guitar.
Arthur Darvill
I always felt mean, jogging back over the logging road,As if I had broken the natural order of things in that swampland;Disturbed some rhythm, old and of vast importance,By pulling off flesh from the living planet;As if I had committed, against the whole scheme of life, a desecration.
Theodore Roethke
Shame weighs a lot more than flesh and bone.
Portia de Rossi
All flesh doth frailty breed!
Edmund Spenser
And as the circumcised in the flesh, and not in the heart, have no part in God’s good promises; even so they that be baptized in the flesh, and not in heart, have no part in Christ’s blood.
William Tyndale
Holiness is nothing else but the habitual and predominant devotion and dedication of soul, and body, and life, and all that we have to God; and esteeming, and loving, and serving, and seeking Him, before all the pleasures and prosperity of the flesh.
Richard Baxter
People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man I’m flesh and blood, I can be ignored, I can be destroyed, but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.
Christian Bale
I will not let a political party tell me how to live, when to die or what to believe in. Our souls are linked to the universe, but we can never see heaven, because our flesh ties us to the earth and the people around us. But when the people around you have lost their will to be free, then earth becomes a hell.
Ma Jian
You don’t know what to say to me because the kingdom is within…flesh and blood’s dream…so you fly now, pay later, all of us…I mean actually it’s PAY NOW, FLY LATER
Jack Kerouac
The thing with videogame characters is that they tend to be really undercooked, and people don’t take the time to really flesh them out. They don’t treat them with the respect that a writer writing characters in any other medium would treat their character.
Rhianna Pratchett
Purge me from every sinful blot;
My idols all be cast aside:
Cleanse me from every evil thought,
From all the filth of self and pride.
The hatred of the carnal mind
Out of my flesh at once remove:
Give me a tender heart, resigned,
And pure, and full of faith and love.
John Wesley
Live in Christ, die in Christ, and the flesh need not fear death.
John Knox
It was then that my religious consciousness emerged to flower years afterward into definite forms of religious dancing in which there is no sense of division between spirit and flesh, religion and art.
Ruth St. Denis
You pass the old L.A. County jail, which is surprisingly beautiful. It’s got a handsome stone facade and stately columns. The new L.A. County jail – called The Twin Towers – isn’t beautiful at all; it’s a stucco panopticon the color of sick flesh.
Leslie Jamison
We were all born of flesh, in a flare of pain. We do not remember the red roots whence we rose, but we know that we rose and walked, that after a while we shall lie down again.
Conrad Aiken
Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots
Tupac Shakur
Incredible amounts of energy are hidden in your brain;
enough in a gram of flesh to run the city of Chicago for 2 days.
And you say you are tired?
Paramahansa Yogananda
So I cast my lot with Him-not the one who claimed wisdom, Confucius; or the one who claimed enlightenment, Buddha; or the one who claimed to be a prophet, Muhammad, but with the one who claimed to be God in human flesh. The one who declared, ‘Before Abraham was born, I am’-and proved it.
Norman Geisler
It is not flesh and blood, but heart which makes us fathers and sons.
Friedrich Schiller
The ‘flesh’ is too bad to be cleansed; it must be crucified.
Watchman Nee
A poverty learned with the humble, the poor, the sick and all those who are on the existential outskirts of life. A theoretical poverty is no use to us. Poverty is learned by touching the flesh of the poor Christ, in the humble, in the poor, in the sick and in children.
Pope Francis
The blood will follow where the knife is driven, The flesh will quiver where the pincers tear.
Edward Young
Be careful, therefore, to take part only in the one Eucharist; for there is only one Flesh of our Lord Jesus Christ and one cup to unite us with His Blood.
Ignatius of Antioch
The mortification of indwelling sin remaining in our mortal bodies, that it may not have life and power to bring forth the works or deeds of the flesh is the constant duty of believers.
John Owen
The former measured six feet and an inch in his stockings, and, without a single pound of cumbrous flesh about him, weighed a hundred and eighty. The latter was an inch shorter than his rival, and ten pounds lighter; but he was much the most active of the two.
Augustus Baldwin Longstreet
The dangerous temptation of wildlife films is that they can lull us into thinking we can get by without the original models — that we might not need animals in the flesh.
Doug Peacock
Steaming maintains some of the aubergine flesh’s texture, which doesn’t happen if you cook it in any other way.
Yotam Ottolenghi
I love the scent of burnt flesh in the morning.
Sgt. Slaughter
Here lies one who neither flattered nor feared any flesh.
John Knox
If I am true to myself, if I am true to mankind, if I am true to humanity, I must understand all the faults that human flesh is heir to.
Mahatma Gandhi
The one term I don’t like to be called is a ‘vulture.’ Because to me, a vulture is a kind of asset-stripper that eats dead flesh off the bones of a dead creature. Our bird should be the phoenix, the bird that reinvents itself, recreates itself from its ashes. And that’s much closer to what it is that we really do.
Wilbur Ross
Salander leaned back against the pillow and followed the conversation with a smile. She wondered why she, who had such difficulty talking about herself with people of flesh and blood, could blithely reveal her most intimate secrets to a bunch of completely unknown freaks on the Internet.
Steig Larsson
This metropolitan world, then, is a world where flesh and blood is less real than paper and ink and celluloid.
Lewis Mumford
Scientology always makes me think of that movie ‘V’ where that woman takes off her mask of human flesh to reveal her true, alien self.
Rick Astley
In ancient days, men looked at stars and saw their heroes in the constellations. In modern times, we do much the same, but our heroes are epic men of flesh and blood.
Richard M. Nixon
As Man alone, Jesus could not have saved us; As God alone, He would not; Made flesh, He could and did.
Malcolm Muggeridge
Injustice experienced in the flesh, in deeply wounded flesh, is the stuff out of which change explodes.
Margaret Mead
Jesus commissioned his church to make disciples of all nations. In this carefully researched work, Thomas Hudgins fleshes out the methods and goals to achieve this divinely ordained assignment. I am thankful for the heart and passion of Thomas. You will find them emerging from the pages of this work.
Daniel L. Akin
Miracle woman … Your mouth is wine, and all your tender flesh An easeful meadow for my weariness.
Donald Evans
There is a knowingness that is as much a part of us as flesh and blood and bones. It’s intuition, the deepest natural knowing. … Intuition is the voice within forever pressing us to stretch ourselves, to take risks, to keep loving and giving birth to a new self, regardless of circumstances.
Susan L. Taylor
Realism and Naturalism rely mostly on the eye of the flesh. Abstract, conceptual and surrealistic art rely mostly on the eye of the mind. Great works of art rely on the eye of contemplation, the eye of the spirit.
Alex Grey
When I sat down with the creators of the show [Longmire], back when we were first starting to do the pilot, Branch was not that interesting on the page. What really sold me on the show and the character was their vision for him. It took the whole first season to flesh him out.
Bailey Chase
Fictional characters are made of words, not flesh; they do not have free will, they do not exercise volition. They are easily born, and as easily killed off.
John Banville
I am alive, he says to himself, I am alive! And life energy surges hotly through him, and delight, and appetite. How good to be in a body – even this old beat-up carcass – that still has warm blood and live semen and rich marrow and wholesome flesh!
Christopher Isherwood
