Thou seest I have more flesh than another man, and therefore more frailty.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

I find no sweeter fat than sticks to my own bones.

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) American poet.

There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less.

Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) British logician and philosopher.

Let me have men about me that are fat, sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights. Yon Cassius has a lean and hungry look. He thinks too much. Such men are dangerous.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

The obese is in a total delirium. For he is not only large, of a size opposed to normal morphology: he is larger than large. He no longer makes sense in some distinctive opposition, but in his excess, his redundancy.

Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) French sociologist, and philosopher.

I have always wanted a mistress who was fat, and I have never found one. To make a fool of me, they are always pregnant.

Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) French artist.

Obesity is a condition which proves that the Lord does not help those who help themselves and help themselves and help themselves.
