Nudist & Naturist Quotations

"Be nude when you can, be clothed when it`s in the best interest of nudism."

"One should go through life, be it red or blue, stark naked and accompanied by the music of a subtle fisherman."
Francis Piscabia (Italian cubist)

...wearing nothing is divine naked is a state of mind i take things off to clear my head to say the things i haven`t said i live inside my elements the earth and sky are my best friends water is the evidence that washes me from end to end...
first verse of track #1, "naked eye," on Luscious Jackson`s latest CD

"For my exercise video, we had this big wooden podium set up in the middle of Saline Beach, and I would do all the exercises, and it would end up that the people on vacation there on the beach would do the exercises with me for fun. Then, at the end of the day, we would take off all of our clothes and go running into the water."
Claudia Schiffer, American Way Magazine, Dec 1 1996

"Around my house clothing is optional, and shoes in particular, seem to have a hard time staying on my children. As I sit here in this swanky hotel room in a Bob Marley T-Shirt and a pair of jeans with my bare feet dangling over an antique desk putting off the time until I have to get up & get dressed to go to dinner, I wonder where my children get this aversion to clothing & footwear?"
Jimmy Buffett, Barometer Soup Insert

"A child who has never been allowed to see his parents and brothers and sisters naked sees nudity as something shocking."
- Dr. Helga Fleischhauer-Hardt, Show Me (New York: St. Martin`s Press, 1975).

"Being natural and matter-of-fact about nudity prevents your children from developing an attitude of shame or disgust about the human body. If parents are very secretive about their bodies and go to great lengths to prevent their children from ever seeing a buttock or breast, children will wonder what is so unusual, and even alarming, about human nudity."
- Dr. Lee Salk, Psychiatrist, (from an article in McCall`s Magazine, June 1976).

"If [the topless females] were violating any other rules, like sitting on a subway bench topless smoking a cigarette, then we would take action."
- New York Transit Authority

As he said in Machiavel, omnes eodem patre nati, Adam`s sons, conceived all and born in sin, etc. "We are by nature all as one, all alike, if you see us naked; let us wear theirs and they our clothes, and what is the difference?"
- Robert Burton. 1576-1640.

"Modesty is a vastly overrated virtue."
- John Kenneth Galbraith

"To reduce the accumulation of static electricity, you must increase the humidity, change or get rid of the carpeting, or both. Although a small room-sized humidifier may help, these steps are often too expensive to be practical. A less expensive (and correspondingly less effective) step is to avoid wearing leather-soled shoes or clothes made of synthetic fibers. (If possible, compute in the nude.) Weather or not you take any of these steps, you should still touch metal to dissipate the static charge before you touch the computer or a disk."
- From the book "Supercharging MS-Dos" by Microsoft Press, 3rd Ed., pg. 393, under the section "Static Electricity Is A Killer"

"I just love having no clothes on outside, and the only time to do that is when the sun`s shining. It`s a wonderful sensation to not have any clothes on."

"..all those textiles sure are going to be pissed when they finally get to heaven, and find out the nudists have been there all along"

Beware of the nude man who offers you the shirt off his back!

A nudist has no fear of a pick-pocket.

The big problem with pornography is defining it. You can`t just say it`s pictures of people naked. For example, you have these primitive African tribes that exist by chasing the wildebeest on foot, and they have to go around largely naked, because, as the old tribal saying goes: "N`wam k`honi soit qui mali," which means, "If you think you can catch a wildebeest in this climate and wear clothes at the same time, then I have some beach front property in the desert region of Northern Mali that you may be interested in."
So it`s not considered pornographic when National Geographic publishes color photographs of these people hunting the wildebeest naked, or pounding one rock onto another rock for some primitive reason naked, or whatever. But if National Geographic were to publish an article entitled "The Girls of the California Junior College System Hunt the Wildebeest Naked," some people would call it pornography. But others would not. And still others, such as the Spectacular Rev. Jerry Falwell, would get upset about seeing the wildebeest naked.
- Dave Barry

"Clothes therefore, must be truly a badge of greatness; the insignia of the superiority of man over all other animals, for surely there could be no other reason for wearing the hideous things."
--TARZAN (From Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs)

"The girl with dark hair was coming towards him across the field. With what seemed a single movement she tore off her clothes and flung them disdainfully aside. Her body was white and smooth, but it aroused no desire in him, indeed he barely looked at it. What overwhelmed him in that instant was admiration for the gesture with which she had thrown her clothes aside. With all its grace and carelessness it seemed to annihilate a whole [oppressive] culture, a whole system of thought."

"We are all naked in the eyes of the Lord!"
- Peter Boyle in "The Dream Team"

"Sweet, sane, still Nakedness in Nature! --ah if poor, sick, prurient humanity in cities might really know you once more! Is not nakedness then indecent? No, not inherently. It is your thought, your sophistication, your fear, your respectibility that is indecent. There come moods when these clothes of ours are not only too irksome to wear, but are themselves indecent. Perhaps indeed he or she to whom the free exhilarating extasy of nakedness in Nature has never been eligible (and how many thousands there are!) has not really known what purity is--nor what faith or art or health really is."
- Walt Whitman, "A Sun-Bath--Nakedness" in "Specimen Days"

Soon as it was night out we shoved; when we got her out to about the middle we let her alone, and let her float wherever the current wanted her to; then we lit the pipes, and dangled our legs in the water, and talked about all kinds of things -- we was always naked, day and night, whenever the mosquitoes would let us -- the new clothes Buck`s folks made for me was too good to be comfortable, and besides I didn`t go much on clothes, nohow.
Chapter 19 of Mark Twain`s Huckleberry Finn
