An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Every day the fat woman dies a series of small deaths.


Shelley Bovey (British feminist)


Outside every fat man there was an even fatter man trying to close in.


Kingsley Amis (1922-1995, British novelist)


I don't weigh a pound over one hundred and eighty, and what's more, I never did.


Fatty Arbuckle (1887-1933, American actor, director, producer)


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 (French postmodern philosopher, writer)


I don't mind that I'm fat. You still get the same money.


Marlon Brando (1924-, American actor, director)


Imprisoned in every fat man, a thin one is wildly signaling to be let out.

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.

it's a sex object if you're pretty and no love or love and no sex if you're fat


Nikki Giovanni (1943-, American poet)


Thin people are beautiful, but fat people are adorable.


Jackie Gleason (1916-1987, American actor)


Who ever hears of fat men heading a riot, or herding together in turbulent mobs? No -- no,  your lean, hungry men who are continually worrying society, and setting the whole community by the ears.


Washington Irving (1783-1859, American author)


Some people are born to fatness. Others have to get there.


Les Murray


How easy for those who do not bulge to not overindulge!


Ogden Nash (1902-1971, American humorous poet)


Fat is a social disease, and fat is a feminist issue.


Susie Orbach


Fat is a way of saying "no" to powerlessness and self-denial.


Susie Orbach


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 philosopher, mathematician, essayist)


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, playwright, actor)


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


William Shakespeare (1564-1616, British poet, playwright, actor)

Author Unknown


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