A little body often harbors a great soul.

A pensive soul feeds upon nothing but bitters.

A soul in a fat body lieth soft and is loth to rise.

As sight in the eye so is the mind in the soul.

Corn is cleansed with the wind and the soul with chastening.

It is nobler to convert souls than to conquer kingdoms.Louis le Debonnaire.

Lay not that flattering unction to your soul.Shakespeare.

Little bodies have great souls.

Little souls on little shifts rely.Dryden.

My chest locked up, my soul safe.Portuguese.

Provide for thy soul by doing good works.

The body is the socket of the soul.

The body is the workhouse of the soul.

The soul is a prisoner which in escaping always kills his jailer.

The soul is not where it lives but where it loves.

The soul of a choleric man sits ever by the fireside.

What is a man profited if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul.New Testament.
