bodies Quotes

Four of the best book quotes about bodies
  1. #1
    “After leaving their bodies, they who have killed the Self go to the worlds of the Asuras, covered with blinding ignorance.”
  2. #2
    “We cannot give our hearts to God and keep our bodies for ourselves”
  3. #3
    “We don’t know how to rest anymore. We don’t allow the body to rest, to release the tension, and heal.”
  4. #4
    “We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves. I wish for all this to be marked on by body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography - to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience.”
