Our Bodies Have a Soul

“When we relate to our bodies as having soul,

we attend to their beauty, their poetry and their expressiveness.

Our very habit of treating the body as a machine,

whose muscles are like pulleys and its organs engines,

forces its poetry underground,

so that we experience the body as an instrument

and see its poetics only in illness.”

~ Thomas Moore
