In this website we have already written articles on Swami Vivekananda's quotations on body and health (listed at the bottom of the page as "Related articles"). Now, the topic of our this article is Swami Vivekananda's quotes on physique.
  • Don't you find that in a weak physique it is difficult to control the sex - appetite or anger? Lean people are quickly incensed and are quickly overcome by the sex - instinct.[Source]
  • First build up your own physique. Then only you can get control over the mind. "नायमात्मा बलहीनेन लभ्य:-- this Self is not to be attained by the weak" (Katha Upanishad, I.ii.23).[Source]
  • How will you struggle with the mind unless the physique be strong?[Source]
  • If the physique of the parents be not strong and healthy, how can strong and healthy children be born at all?[Source]
  • The gist of the letter I wrote to you about your change to Baidyanath was that it would be impossible for a man of weak and extremely delicate physique like you to live in that place unless you spent a good deal of money.[Source]
  • The gist of the thing is that unless one has a good physique one can never aspire to Self - realisation.[Source]
  • The physique of this country is not at all good. If you want to do some strenuous work, it cannot bear the strain.[Source]
  • You must learn to make the physique very strong and teach the same to others. Don't you find me exercising every day with dumb - bells even now? Walk in the morning and evenings and do physical labour. Body and mind must run parallel. It won't do to depend on others in everything. When the necessity of strengthening the physique is brought home to people, they will exert themselves of their own accord. It is to make them feel this need that education is necessary at the present moment.[Source]
