Slim Quotes:

J. K. Rowling

Now a ‘funnyman’ can get a laugh before opening his mouth – looking funny. Lou Costello was one of your great funnymen. Harry Langdon, Larry Semon; they were all funnymen – they looked funny. W.C.

I’m not slim. I’m a curvy girl: I’ve got thighs and a bum. I don’t mind baring the fact that I’ve got a bit of cellulite because everybody has. I find it off-putting when everybody on telly is the same size or looks the same build. For me, it’s important for people to watch someone normal.

Poetry is a lousy form of activism; it doesn’t really change much. And maybe we can point to one or two historical times when a poem has started a revolution or a rebellion or an uprising, but it doesn’t happen that often, and if you put the number of poems next to the number of political acts, it would be pretty slim.

Daphne Gottlieb

Many swimmers have a little bit of extra fat though, so that they can deal with the cold and get through what is an exhausting event.

I feel like an ‘8 Mile’ Eminem compared to ‘My Name is.’ Whenever my name is brought up, it’s in a ‘Slim Shady’ way, and it’s funny, and I’m lighthearted, but at the same time, every once in a while, I like to take it seriously.

Michael Beasley

I think women were just accepted more as songwriters when they sat on a stool with a guitar and had scruffy hair.

I grew up, like – since I had a lot of brothers, I grew up listening to Hot Boys, Goodie Mob, OutKast, basically all the southern albums, like Silkk the Shocker, Master P, Soulja Slim, and then it just elevated on when I started getting into music and I started listening to Nas and Jay Z and stuff like that and Lupe Fiasco and whatnot.

Denzel Curry

So, I was like, man, I could take this guy.

Melissa Mathison

Compared to the big 19th-century novelists, I’ve got a slim volume of work.

Melvyn Bragg

An embellished top with slim pants is great, even for a wedding.

Brad Goreski

Babies are born bow-legged in South Dakota. By the age of 12, they can purchase guns. At 14, they can take their driving test. Fortunately, since the geographical area of South Dakota can accommodate both France and Germany, but has a population of only 750,000, the chances of hitting anything are pretty slim.

Clive Sinclair

I like the brand Band of Outsiders. Their suits are cut really slim, for smaller framed gentlemen.

Aziz Ansari

Noelle Stevenson

Being a plus-size actress, it is slim pickings, so anytime any role comes up for a plus-size actress, my agents are all over it, and they were like, ‘You have to book this job. It’s ‘American Horror Story.’ It’s a big deal.’ No pressure, right?

Chrissy Metz

I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that’s changed.

I tend to be slim and you know, I actually can lose weight quicker than I can gain it.

Michael Waltrip

I think ‘300 Arguments’ is a real tiny wallop of a book. It looks very slim, and at first, each little two-sentence or one-sentence thing kind of stands on its own, but again, as you read it, you get sucked into the momentum of it, and the whole of it is much larger than the sum of its parts in a really beautiful way.

Raphael Bob-Waksberg

I knew my chances of playing beyond college were extremely slim. You just don’t see too many 5-foot-10 quarterbacks out there.

Matt LaFleur

My career has been very good to me, but really, the odds are really slim. It’s a tough life, and you deal with a lot of rejection and unemployment, and if you’re lucky to have a career, it’s not easy. So you just want to protect your kids from the pain of rejection.

Morena Baccarin

I first came across Langhorne Slim when I saw him play live, and he’s an incredibly infectious performer. The way he works the crowd is mind-blowing. You can listen to his music without really listening to his lyrics, but it pays off if you do.

Johnny Flynn

My favorite part was when my grandfather and I would make a special trip to Firpo’s Bakery for red and green Christmas cookies and fruitcake studded with the sweetest cherries I’ve ever tasted. Usually Firpo’s was too expensive for our slim budget, but Christmas mornings they gave a discount to any children who came in.

Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

‘Game of Thrones’ is so unique, and the odds that any of us involved will be in another show like it are very slim, so I’m enjoying the ride.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

In Ghana, most of the women I know do not identify as sexy, and the reason may be cultural. With imported beauty standards from the West, it seems that many African women feel they need to be fair and slim to be beautiful.

Philomena Kwao

The first cellphone I owned was hardly a slim, high-tech device – it was more like a brick with buttons, only with worse reception. If you wanted to use your phone to give someone a message, you were better off throwing it at him and hoping you broke his car window.

W. Bruce Cameron

There are people who you see on screen and think, ‘Wow, that’s a slim person,’ and in the flesh they look nearly dead.

Romola Garai

I am not even trying to become size zero. My problem was that I hated to see myself putting on weight when I could see others around me slim and trim and looking great. It was affecting me mentally.

Tanushree Dutta

Well, we’re on a never-ending quest to slim down. It’s just very difficult for us.

Kyle Gass

I’m drawn to black clothes. I say I’m inspired by the wrestler The Undertaker because there’s something about wearing black that makes me feel confident and classy. It isn’t to try and make me look slim!

Daniel Sturridge

I got extremely fit and slim on ‘Strictly,’ but I did find that, each week, a different part of my body hurt. It really makes you realise the hard work dancers have to put in and how fit they have to be.

Anita Dobson

Within the modeling industry, there’s no doubt that there are some girls out there that are too thin. But there are also girls who are genetically slim and can eat like a horse.

For me, it’s all about healthy eating and working out. If I have to look slim for a bikini, then I will eat lots more salad and fruit, which are low in calories and don’t make you look bloated.

Debra Stephenson

In ’84 there was Raheem, Slim Jukebox, and Sir Rap-A-Lot. Those were the first three members of the Geto Boys with DJ Ready Red. By ’85 it was Prince Johnny C, Slim Jukebox, Bushwick Bill, and DJ Ready Red. By ’89 it was Scarface, Willie D, Bushwick Bill, and Ready Red.

Bushwick Bill

It’s extremely difficult to describe interestingly what happens on the pitch. Thousands of journalists write millions of words every week trying to do it, so your chances of avoiding cliche are very slim. And you’re trying to write fiction, not a match report.

Mal Peet

People think if you are a celebrity and if you’re beautiful, or if you’re slim, then life is a bed of roses. Or they think that if you’re wealthy, you don’t have normal relationship problems, because why would anyone reject you?

Kelly Brook

The way Fatboy Slim layers motifs is the same as 18th-century baroque counterpoint. You have an idea, then you have an answer to the idea in another voice, then you have a counter idea accompanying the original idea, and you build up your texture like that. I’m really into Kruder and Dorfmeister at the moment, and they do the same thing.

Charles Hazlewood

I eat tons, three full meals a day, and I never go to the gym. When I was a child, my geography teacher said, ‘You may be slim now but if you carry on eating like that, you’ll end up being really fat.’ Fortunately, I really don’t think I’ve changed much in the past two decades, so that teacher was an idiot.

Gina Bellman

In the beginning, I wanted to work with Slim Duncan. He actually passed away right around when I started making beats.

Murda Beatz

My strengths are my flexibility from all those years of dancing. I have got nice thin arms and slim legs, which both looked really toned and tight after one day of working out.

Hazel Keech

If we are to assume that North Korea becomes a nuclear-power state, of course the danger of having an all-out nuclear war, that possibility is very slim.

Lee Myung-bak

Because I’m short and slim, I can identify with somebody who’s an unlikely fit for something and desperately wants to be part of it.

Daniel Radcliffe

Thousands of people plead guilty to crimes every year in the United States because they know that the odds of a jury’s believing their word over a police officer’s are slim to none.

Michelle Alexander

It’s actually a smarter crime because imagine if you rob a bank, or you’re dealing drugs. If you get caught you’re going to spend a lot of time in custody. But with hacking, it’s much easier to commit the crime and the risk of punishment is slim to none.

Kevin Mitnick

Fresh air and exercise. That’s all you need to stay slim and feel better about life.

Katie Hopkins

If you walk into any magazine store, I guarantee that nine out of 10 covers will feature white, blonde, blue-eyed, slim women because that’s still the ideal of beauty. When a black or Asian figure shows up in a fashion magazine, she’s the exception, not the rule.

Kerry James Marshall

In the back of my mind, I can never forget this could be gone tomorrow – and at this point I think the odds are against me… the chances of succeeding in this business are slim to none; there’s only a handful of people that have long careers. You have to put in the work, you can never be satisfied, never take it for granted.

Zac Efron

I maintain that if there is such a thing as a true and honest environmentalist, it’s people like Slim and hopefully me, who have been caretakers of the land all our lives, along with the generations before us.

Wilford Brimley

In New York, you are competing with Times Square lights and all of that, so you’ve got to be 300 pounds and crazy to get anyone’s attention. Then, you can refine yourself. I always knew under those 300 pounds and tracksuits was a refined, slim, dignified man.

Al Sharpton

The Australian Book of Etiquette is a very slim volume.

Paul Theroux

I definitely feel pressure to keep slim. I don’t want to be the guy who lost weight and gained it all back. But it’s hard. Sometimes I’ll gorge and gain nine pounds in a weekend somehow, and I get bummed about it.

Jimmy Kimmel

The chances of a person breaking through their own habits and sloth and limited mind to actually write something that gets out there and matters to people are slim.

George Saunders

When I got to Central Arkansas, I was a small, slim guy with little chance of playing in the NBA. Then, I went through a two-year growth spurt, and suddenly, I was 6-foot-7.

Scottie Pippen

Models now need to promote themselves, think like businesswomen and diversify their careers by doing other things. Chances are very slim that a mere model will become a household name today.

Tyra Banks

Criminals look at identity theft and say only 1 in 700 criminals gets convicted of it. And they look at check forgery and they know that for every 1,400 forgers arrested, only about 123 get convicted and about 26 go to jail. So the rewards are great, but the risks are very slim. So that’s one of the reasons that make it very popular.

Frank Abagnale

Flannery O’Connor’s brief life and slim output were nonetheless marked by piercing powers of observation.

Floyd Skloot

I’d love there to be more larger models, but it’s just not going to happen. Designers love to design for slim girls.


For a slim, sexy body, it’s important to eat protein every day – preferably at every meal. Be sure to ask about the origins of your meat, poultry and seafood. If you can’t afford organic, free-range meats, opt for natural poultry, pork, and beef that’s raised without antibiotics or hormones.

Suzanne Somers

To successfully lose weight after 40, you need to understand that imbalanced hormones and chemicals have a huge impact on your health. It is possible, however, to live a clean, healthy, and long life – with a slim body, even after 40!

Suzanne Somers

Your liver is your vital detoxification organ, and if it becomes overloaded with toxins from the food, drink, or medications you’re consuming, you’ll have more toxins circulating throughout your body, damaging your organs and glands. Detoxing your liver will help it work more efficiently – and help you slim your waistline.

Suzanne Somers

Slender, as in girth or shape; slight in construction or structure is called slim.
