What is governing body?

Famous quotes containing the words body and/or governing:

    Just getting in the pool for seven straight hours is unbearable to me.... It’s grueling. There’s nothing physically pleasurable about it. If you’re doing a hard workout, you’re throwing up in the gutter. At night you cling to your pillow and just hope that your body revives before you have to go back and do it again.
    Diana Nyad (b. 1949)

    ... governing is occupying but not interesting, governments are occupying but not interesting ...
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
