Julian Barnes
“Apart from these parental physical jerks, he did not train his body; he merely inhabited it. A friend had once shown what he called gymnastics for the intelligentsia. You took a box of matches and threw its contents on the floor, then bent down and picked them up, one by one. The first time he tried it himself, he lost patience and stuffed all the matches back in handfuls. He persevered, but the next time, just as he was bending down, the telephone went, and he was needed at once; so the housekeeper was detailed to pick up the matches instead.”
Julian Barnes, The Noise of Time

But no, it must be done with ribbons and lace, by cutting their
breath short from the excessive use of tight-fitting corsets. And this translates to a waste of time, health, and money.”
Luisa Capetillo, A Nation of Women: An Early Feminist Speaks Out: Mi Opinion Sobre Las Libertades, Derechos y Deberes de La Mujer
