Charles Atlas
The mechanical brain does not secrete thought “as the liver does bile,” as the earlier materialists claimed, nor does it put it out in the form of energy, as the muscle puts out its activity.

Mark Valley
There were times when I tried to hide my muscles. When you’re a young girl, you hear, ‘You’re really strong,’ or, ‘You have really toned arms.’ In my head, it wasn’t something that should be said about a girl. It should be more, ‘You’re pretty.’

Brian Littrell

Marge Piercy
To butcher a pork shoulder is to be forcibly reminded that this is the shoulder of a large mammal, made up of distinct groups of muscles with a purpose quite apart from feeding me.

Michael Pollan
I have enough muscle already. Now I want to use it in more efficient ways.
Angela Ruggiero

Alan Cohen
I like a really natural looking body, so I’m not into muscles and looking like you just did 1,000 pull-ups and sit-ups and like you only eat lean turkey. That’s not for me. I just like people to look like people, and so I think it’s really attractive when men don’t have perfect bodies.
Nikki Reed
I was 15, and the years of hard swimming had packed muscle on my frame and made me very strong. Not as strong as a football player, but strong enough to inflict heavy damage.
Esther Williams
You can’t get rid of it with exercise alone. You can do the most vigorous exercise and only burn up 300 calories in an hour. If you’ve got fat on your body, the exercise firms and tones the muscles. But when you use that tape measure, what makes it bigger? It’s the fat!
Jack LaLanne

You have to be strong to be a carpenter, maybe, but the director of a film doesn’t need to have muscles.
Agnes Varda
Pilates introduced me to muscles I never even knew I had. Soon I started to feel longer and leaner. Ten years of Pilates has really changed my body for the better.
Lucy Liu
Some people don’t believe in cold. I’ve gotten so used to it that I love it… and doing those things to get my muscles to bounce back and recover have been very beneficial for the longevity of my career.
Jason McCourty
Your play account is also designed to strengthen your “receiving” muscle.
T. Harv Eker
You can do crunches all day long, and you abs will indeed get bigger and stronger, but you will never see them. The only way to see the muscles you work so hard for is to lose weight globally – across your entire body.
Kyle Hill
I don’t always have the stomach muscles I have, and I get cellulite as well like everyone else.
Elisabetta Canalis
Because the beauty of the human body is that it hasn’t a single muscle which doesn’t serve its purpose; that there’s not a line wasted; that every detail of it fits one idea, the idea of a man and the life of a man.
Ayn Rand
I lost more then 6 kilograms when I ceased with the top sport. That were all muscles. They are now gone.
Gabriela Sabatini
Our military doesn’t defend our American people. Our military is the strong-arm muscle of corporations.
Jesse Ventura
Management means, in the last analysis, the substitution of thought for brawn and muscle, of knowledge for folkways and superstition, and of cooperation for force. It means the substitution of responsibility for obedience to rank, and of authority of performance for the authority of rank.
Peter Drucker
Nothing is as important to muscle growth as good nutrition.
Fredrick Hatfield
If you do not use a muscle or any part of the body, it tends to become atrophic. So is the case with the brain. The more you use it, the better it becomes.
Shakuntala Devi
I’m looking forward to playing some really despicable characters at some point in my career so I can branch out and stretch those acting muscles. But I wouldn’t want to do that on a regular basis.
Zachary Levi
Four grabs a bar with each hand and pulls himself up, easy, like he’s sitting up in bed. But he is not comfortable or natural here— every muscle in his arm stands out. it is a stupid thing for me to think when I am one hundred feet off the ground.
Veronica Roth
What I look for in a script is something that challenges me, something that breaks new ground, something that allows me to flex my director muscle. You have got to think fast in this business, youve got to keep reinventing yourself to stay on top.
Michael Bay
I work out with alot of gay guys at the gym. I do, because my only goal is to get into gay shape. Now, you know what I’m talking about. Gay men are the most ripped kind of… listen… I don’t know how strong you have to be to blow a guy, but I’m guessin’, there is some muscle involved.
Alonzo Bodden
I want to roll my eyes right now, but the doctor says that if I keep doing it, my ocular muscles might spasm and eject my eyeballs.
Passion for our work is not usually a subterranean volcano waiting to erupt…It is a muscle that gets strengthened a little each day as we show up – as we do what is expected of us, and then some.
John Ortberg
Strength of the mind is more powerful than strength of the muscles.
Ana Monnar
Hard work is a muscle that you develop, as is taking risks.
Ted Alexandro
I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.
Smedley Butler
Because muscle is heavier than fat, dancers weigh more than you might think, but they are usually very lean.
Deborah Bull
Test cricket is not easy. If you haven’t played first-class cricket for five years, then your muscles aren’t used to bowling for that long.
Wasim Akram
As a vegan body-builder I want to show others that it is possible to gain significant muscle and strength on a vegan diet and I want to inspire others to follow this lifestyle. I love being vegan and knowing that I am having a positive impact on our society.
Robert Cheeke
I smile a lot. I heard someone say once that it takes fewer muscles to smile than to frown, so i’m trying it out.
Cecil Castellucci
Play exercises both your physical and creative muscles. It helps you move around, solve problems, challenge yourself, and think in new ways. Not to mention that it’s just plain fun.
Darell Hammond
When addressed, a Gentleman Cat does not move a muscle. He looks as if he hasn’t heard.
May Sarton
But I work harder now because I have so much more exposure. And actually the harder you work as a writer, the better you get at it. It’s like anything else. It’s a muscle you have to exercise. I write more now than ever.
Ron White
When I did Casual, I just let myself put on weight because he’s a schoolteacher. He’s not meant to be muscle-y.
Patrick Heusinger
A boy’s muscles move quicker than his thoughts.
Jerome K. Jerome
As a baby grows in the womb, the surrounding abdominal muscles stretch outward. If you don’t tighten up those muscles after delivery, your abs will remain loose and weak.
Denise Austin
A lot of fitness is about contractions – you’re doing squats, or you’re on a bike and your knees are bending but never stretching all the way, so your muscles get strengthened but look short and thick.
Mary Helen Bowers
I set my toothbrush down, then leaned into the mirror and stared into my own eyes. I could feel myself disintegrating inside myself like a past-bloom flower in the wind. Every time I moved a muscle, another petal of me blew away. Please, I thought. Please.
Cheryl Strayed
The mind is satisfied with phrased, but not the body, the body is more fastidious, it wants muscles. A body always tells the truth, that’s why it’s usually depressing and disgusting to look at.
Louis-Ferdinand Celine
As cows need milking and sweet peas need picking, so writers must continually exercise their mental muscles by a daily stint.
Joan Aiken
Flood your life with ideas from many sources. Creativity needs to be exercised like a muscle. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it!
Brian Tracy
Comedy is something that I’m definitely looking to get into. I had a little taste of it and I do intend on going to classes for it because I think it’s a different muscle, and it’s hard to find female comedians.
Ashley Greene
I’ve broken a lot of things. I’ve torn a lot of muscles. I’ve torn a lot of ligaments.
Derek Carr
Maybe the body learns from dreams. Maybe the muscles, the neutrons, revitalize.
Michael Zaslow
…I scarcely am able to govern my muscles, when I see a man start with eager, and serious solicitude, to lift a handkerchief, orshut a door, when the lady could have done it herself, had she only moved a pace or two.
Mary Wollstonecraft
Justice is a concept. Muscle is the reality.
Linda Blandford

Robert Cheeke
Great ideas originate in the muscles.
Thomas A. Edison
Mental will is a muscle that needs exercise, just like the muscles of the body.
Lynn Jennings
He who lives in the single exercise of his mental faculties, however usefully or curiously directed, is equally an imperfect animal with the man who knows only the exercise of muscles.
Frances Wright
Money and muscle, that’s what I want; to be able to do any damned thing I want and get away with it. Money won’t do that altogether, because if a man is a weakling, all the money in the world won’t enable him to soak an enemy himself; on the other hand, unless he has money he may not be able to get away with it.
Robert E. Howard
Pleasure and pain, though directly opposite, are yet so contrived by nature as to be constant companions; and it is a fact that the same motions and muscles of the face are employed both in laughing and crying.
Pierre Charron
I could feel his muscle tissues collapse under my force. It’s ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.
Mike Tyson
There’s some muscle group around your shoulders that seizes up during the perfection dance and doesn’t let go until you are asleep, or alone. Or maybe it never really lets go at all.
Anna Quindlen
My normal weight category is 48 kg. So for the 51 kg. category, I had to depend on lots of food and drinks before going in for the weigh-in. But that does not make my strength, my muscles. It’s a little bit different. If there’s a 48 kg. category, it’s a perfect fit for me.
Mary Kom
Running is a way for me to relax. With one hour of intense running, I can get a lot of physical exercise. I can relax my body. I feel a tension in my muscles when I don’t run. In that sense, I need to get out a few times a week in order to do my work as a scientist, which involves a lot of sitting still.
Wolfgang Ketterle
Every child is born blessed with a vivid imagination. But just as a muscle grows flabby with disuse, so the bright imagination of a child pales in later years if he ceases to exercise it.
Walt Disney
It’s so rare to get all of your muscles firing at once. That’s what I look for in any role.
Chris Pine
Muscle mass does not always equal strength. Strength is kindness and sensitivity. Strength is understanding that your power is both physical and emotional. That it comes from the body and the mind. And the heart.
Henry Rollins
Wit is not levelled so much at the muscles as at the heart; and the latter will sometimes smile when there is not a single wrinkle on the cheek.
George Lyttelton, 1st Baron Lyttelton
If you don’t set your writing – teaching – at a level that makes them stretch, they are never going to develop their intellectual muscle.
M. H. Abrams
The c**k isn’t a muscle so it doesn’t grow in relation to the shoulders, say, or the pectorals. You can’t make it bigger through exercise, that’s for sure.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
How is it that I’d nearly been smothered to death, and yet I could sit there and notice things like my stepbrother’s abdominal muscles a few minutes later?
Meg Cabot
I used to play football at school, and I enjoyed really physical sports, but I now try to avoid any sports that might build up different muscles. That might have a negative impact on my archery.
Im Dong-Hyun
After being taught sets and reps and working at it for a length of time you can’t paint by numbers anymore. It must come from within. Any artist has an emotional contact with their work. A true bodybuilder doesn’t just build muscle he creates muscle. You can’t be a robot.
Tom Platz
If you do a character that resonates enough, people are always going to see you as that character. It will just be up to me to make choices where I can flex other muscles.
Danny McBride
His muscles flexed under his clothes, holding me, leading me. Never letting me stray far.
Becca Fitzpatrick
Mind is everything. Muscle – pieces of rubber. All that I am, I am because of my mind.
Paavo Nurmi
Pilates is amazing, my posture is so much better and I’m even starting to get muscles on my tummy – it’s incredible.
Kelly Osbourne
When it comes to the skin, there are two possible ways to tighten it up: surgery, or develop the muscle underneath! It is like blowing up a balloon underneath some wrinkly sheets. It eventually pulls them tight!
Chris Powell
I’m already a tiny person, so now I’m trying to go to the gym to add muscle. I need it!
Alexa Vega
I am not really into mediation etc. but I am more interested in physical benefits of yoga. I love the fact that it helps me keep a control on my body and muscles.
Amyra Dastur
It’s happened a couple of times in training when I hyper-extend my back. Some facet joints send all the muscles in my lower back and lumbar-spine into spasm.
Brian O’Driscoll
Those running tights the young women wear now, so they look like spacewomen, raspberry red and electric green so tight they show every muscle right into the crack between the buttocks, what is the point of them? Display. Young animals need to display.
John Updike
I’d always wanted to be an actress, and suddenly I knew that learning to control my facial muscles was one of the best assets I could have as a performer.
Jane Greer
I began to exercise a lot of cinematic muscle with the precepts I had learned in the New York art world. Film was intriguing. I began to think of art as elitist, whereas film was not.
Kathryn Bigelow
I want to get stronger. I want to get slimmer. I’m already slimmer, but I want to get some muscles so I can fight all these guys in the post.
Ivica Zubac
Write, write, and write some more. Think of writing as a muscle that needs lots of exercise.
Jane Yolen
There never has been a man in the game who could put mind and muscle together quicker and with better judgment than Robinson.
Branch Rickey
Total relaxation is the secret to enjoying sitting meditation. I sit with my spine upright, but not rigid; and I relax all the muscles in my body.
Nhat Hanh
Muscles are in a most intimate and peculiar sense the organs of the will. They have built all the roads, cities and machines in the world, written all the books, spoken all the words, and, in fact done everything that man has accomplished with matter. Character might be a sense defined as a plexus of motor habits.
G. Stanley Hall
Being a person who has had plastic surgery and goes to the gym five days a week to work my muscles up so they don’t look atrophied as a 60-year-old, I don’t disparage people who want to maintain their appearance. But what I don’t want is a society that tells me I have to.
Faye Wattleton
People don’t realize that when they ‘throw out’ their back, it’s often because of weak abs. These muscles are essential for lower-back strength and good posture.
Sylvester Stallone
I think people have had too much to think and ought to flex their magic muscles. It takes awhile to get oriented to what I do, but people seem to be able to hear it if they give it a chance. I’d never just want to do what everybody else did. I’d be contributing to the sameness of everything.
Don Van Vliet
I was a semi-professional gymnast as a child. I did rhythmic gymnastics, but I sustained an injury and strained all the muscles in my spine.
Gwendoline Christie
Use now and then a little Exercise a quarter of an Hour before Meals, as to swing a Weight, or swing your Arms about with a small Weight in each Hand; to leap, or the like, for that stirs the Muscles of the Breast.
Benjamin Franklin
I would recommend that any writer get off their ass at least once and just try it. Directing is a completely different set of muscles. It also affects your writing because, once you start directing, you tend to write your scripts with directing in mind.
Amy Sherman-Palladino
I ruptured my plantaris muscle. It runs through the calf and goes down the side of your achilles and stretches right to the heel.
Lee Westwood
When you dance, you own everything you have. You are really in your own body. You do it with your muscles and your bones and your weight and your height – it’s how to love yourself by moving.
Christine and the Queens
When you play a serious role, as far as I’m concerned, I feel I’m using exactly the same skills, whatever they are, to play the role as you do with something more obviously comic. It’s slightly different muscles, but the same skill set.
Rowan Atkinson
I enjoy getting to work on ‘Saturday Night Live’, where I get to do people like David Paterson. And then, its like a different muscle to do someone like a bicycle guy on’ Portlandia’.
Fred Armisen
Exercise of the muscles keeps the body in health, and exercise of the brain brings peace of mind.
John Lubbock
The old movie stars like Bogart, James Cagney, Jimmy Stewart, they weren’t this gorgeous, striking six-foot man who’s rippled with muscles.
Jack Huston
Every time you envy someone you use a muscle in your face to disadvantage. If you do it only once or twice, it can be erased. But over a period of years, those muscles will tighten your mouth, narrow your eyes, and help destroy your attractiveness.
Arlene Dahl
Most of us tend toward muscular imbalance. Typically our chest and front shoulder muscles are stronger than our upper back and rear shoulder muscles. As a result, our chins jut out, our shoulders round, and our backs sway.
Denise Austin
It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people then to dominate them, more ‘manhood’ to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.
Alex Karras
Burning fat efficiently boils down to one thing – building more muscle!
Denise Austin
As people strengthened their willpower muscles in one part of their lives—in the gym, or a money management program—that strength spilled over into what they ate or how hard they worked. Once willpower became stronger, it touched everything.
Charles Duhigg
‘Metals’ has partly been about me regaining my self respect and I feel like I’m growing the muscles I want to grow again.
Action is transitory, a step, a blow,
The motion of a muscle, this way or that,
‘Tis done–And in the after-vacancy,
We wonder at ourselves, like men betrayed.
William Wordsworth
I could never focus on my upper body as a skater, so I’m enjoying having symmetrical upper and lower body muscle.
Apolo Ohno
I do a lot of things because if you do just one thing… like, if you run too much, everything just gets loose. You lose weight, but you get loose, and you want to be strong, have muscles.
Isabeli Fontana
I stand for a strong state that safeguards freedom. I don’t need to show muscle for that.
Thomas de Maiziere
I like to compete in a suit that will help me save me time and energy by reducing drag, so I race in Aqua Sphere’s Energize Compression Speedsuit. The speedsuit also compresses the core muscles to damp vibration, which lessens muscle fatigue, leaving me fresher for the bike and run.
Timothy O’Donnell
Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
I don’t do this to be healthy, I do this to get big muscles.
Markus Ruhl
Everyone has a special place they store their tension (I’m on shiatsu duty), the same way everyone misspells the same words over and over. Karla stores her tension in her rhomboid muscles, and I remove it. This is making me feel good. That I can do this.
Douglas Coupland
When you’re an actress you’ve got to keep your body as your sanctuary and your muscles.
Paz de la Huerta
He (Jimmie Foxx) has muscles in his hair.
Lefty Gomez
Theres no particular relationship between spending and educational results. Most education spending is actually on salaries, and thats allocated according to political muscle.
Peter Brimelow
Muscles come and go; flab lasts.
Bill Vaughan
Unused ability, like unused muscles, will atrophy.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Fight tautness whenever it occurs; strive for relaxed muscles throughout.
Bobby Jones
You have to challenge yourself and your muscles. When you are really regimented, it’s the same over and over and you start to get comfortable. Switching up the style of training works your muscles differently.
Curtis Jackson
If you want to “tone and build,” it is time to pick up some iron – that’s the way we can get a muscle to grow.
Chris Powell
I love team sports – they give me something to focus on rather than the fact that I can’t breathe or my muscles are aching.
Sanjeev Bhaskar
Creative writing and shooting are muscles that atrophy. But when you work them, you become a self-generator who can branch out.
Eli Roth
The guys that I played with, Hollis Dixon and the Keynotes – just about all the great musicians from Muscle Shoals.We played fraternity parties and kids’ dances. They were called “lead outs” for kids in high school. We played wherever we could – in the down time when you weren’t recording, people had to make money.
Donnie Fritts
You think of She-Hulk and muscles and stuff, but the person who’s behind it is just such a cool character.
Emily Hampshire
Ideally, our muscles should obey our will. Reasonably, our will should not be dominated by the reflex actions of our muscles.
Joseph Pilates
The law of the heart is thus the same as the law of muscular tissue generally, that the energy of contraction, however measured, is a function of the length of the muscle fibre.
Ernest Starling
Dance … is life, or becomes it, in a way that other arts cannot attain. It is not in stone, or words or tones, but in our muscles. It is a formulation of their movements.
Baker Brownell
Take care of your muscles and they’ll hold up.
Jae Crowder
I’m 190 pounds of rock hard muscle, underneath 40 pounds of sturdy protective fat.
John Swartzwelder
Photography forces one out into the world, interacting with people and the environment. It flexes all those right brain, spatially-adept muscles.
Deborah Copaken Kogan
The most important day in any running program is rest. Rest days give your muscles time to recover so you can run again. Your muscles build in strength as you rest.
Hal Higdon
Only when women rebel against patriarchal standards does female muscle become more accepted.
Gloria Steinem
Because a football game is just sixty minutes, but I’m training six, seven hours in every day. So, going for sixty minutes becomes easy. More importantly, I think that your muscles mature and can move in all different directions.
Ray Lewis
There are a lot of different beliefs for tightening up your core. I think just being conscious of it and being aware to engage your muscles will help any woman’s tummy get in shape.
Brooke Burke
All my muscles are in my face. I have a very muscular face. I’m good with faces. I always have been.
Amy Sedaris
I found enormous opposition to my religion. It’s like if you want to strengthen your biceps, you lift heavy weight, as heavy as you can handle, and work your muscles against resistance until it grows strong. I had to do that with my religion.
Ricardo Montalban
Normally, after a movie, you know, you don’t want to get up and do another one right away. That kind of pretend muscle or whatever you use making movies is kind of, you know, spent. And you have other things to do.
Jeff Bridges
The brain and muscles must develop simultaneously. Iron nerves with an intelligent brain — and the whole world is at your feet.
Swami Vivekananda
What I rediscovered was the therapeutic nature of singing lessons. They’re like doing yoga but for [the] inside of your body. You open up and use muscles that you don’t think of as malleable.
Stephen Colbert
I never focus on contraction. I’m focusing on my muscle. I’m not focusing on a certain style of lifting or contracting. I’m just trying to get the weight up. I’m trying to build muscle.
Ronnie Coleman
If we do not begin to practice the muscles of having a possessive investment in each other’s oppressions, then we are in some serious trouble.
Junot Diaz
Now [after doing Pilates], I have muscles of steel and could easily deal with giving birth.
Hugh Grant
I’d proven to the world that maturity, experience, dedication, and ingenuity can make up for a little senescence. Muscle tightening is not the only thing that happens to our bodies over time. We gain knowledge, focus, and understanding, and those things can help us win.
Dara Torres
It’s rare that I’m not at work on some sort of craft project. I’ve often enthused about the need to make things; how it employs a unique set of muscles – physical, intellectual, spiritual – that I can attain a state of flow when making something that I almost never can when writing.
David Rakoff
But you can’t muscle through a five-hour run that way; you have to relax into it like easing your body into a hot bath, until it no longer resists the shock and begins to enjoy it.
Christopher McDougall
The incessant driving of the pen over paper causes intense fatigue of the hand and the whole arm because of the continuous … strain on the muscles and tendons.
Bernardino Ramazzini
Grace. I held on to that name. If I kept that in my head, I would be OK. Grace. I was shaking, shaking; my skin peeling away. Grace. My bones squeezed, pinched, pressed against my muscles. Grace. Her eyes held me even after I stopped feeling her fingers gripping my arms. Sam,” she said. “Don’t go.
Maggie Stiefvater
All the things you can do to prepare for a role that free you, in the moment, are great. You have this muscle memory for things. You don’t have to act it as much, once you’ve done it enough.
Josh Peck
Botox, trust me I’ve been tempted – but I resist! Think about what happens to your muscles – and your skin – if you’re sick and don’t move for a few days. It all atrophies! Plus, if you freeze a muscle in your face, other muscles have to compensate! And once you stop, what does that look like?
Salma Hayek
The most exciting fight I have called on HBO was the first meeting between Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward. When I stood up to do the post-fight on camera, my stomach muscles were tight and sore from the tension of watching them take their lives into their hands and trade shots.
Jim Lampley
It really helps if you’ve got something like cycling, walking, running or swimming that can let your body release all that tension and keep your muscles fit.
Paul Rankin
Consider the biggest animals on the planet: elephants, and buffaloes, and giraffes. These are vegetarian animals. They grow to thousands of pounds of muscle and bone without ever eating cheeseburgers and pepperoni pizzas.
Michael Klaper
Your ethical muscle grows stronger every time you choose right over wrong.
Price Pritchett
What we want is muscles of iron and nerves of steel. We have wept long enough. No more weeping, but stand on your feet and be men. It is man-making theories that we want. It is man-making education all round that we want.
Swami Vivekananda
I tried to tell you. You said you didn’t care, remember?” A muscle ticked below his eye. “You should have told me anyway.” “While you had barbells within your reach? Please. I’m Disease, not Stupid.
Gena Showalter
Nancy’s got a guardian angel. Seven feet plus of muscle and mayhem that goes by the name of Marv.
Frank Miller
The brain can be developed just the same as the muscles
can be developed, if on will only take the pains to train
the mind to think.
Thomas A. Edison
The tongue is the only muscle in the human body that never gets tired [talking].
Evan Esar
You can muscle your way to the top as long as you’re part of the production, which I am. I’m knitted into the money, so it’s very hard to extricate me from the decision-making dynamic.
Ben Wheatley
NaNo[ National Novel Writing Month] is an awesome opportunity to stretch your writing muscles and gives you permission to write in a way you probably wouldn’t do in a normal circumstance.
Michelle J. Howard
Prayer and meditation are my inner secret and my outer secret. My muscles are next to nothing compared to the muscles of the professional bodybuilders and weightlifters. It is because of the strength of my prayer-life and meditation-life that I am able to accomplish these feats of strength.
Sri Chinmoy
