laziness

Laziness quotes
Laziness
Now, and at no other time: in this same nineteenth century lies our work. Let us thank God that we are here now, and joyfully try to understand where we are, and what our work is here. As for all superstitions about "the good old times," and fancies that they belonged to God, while this age belongs only to man, blind chance, and the evil one, let us cast them from us as the suggestions of an evil lying spirit, as the natural parents of laziness, pedantry, fanaticism, and unbelief. And therefore let us not fear to ask the meaning of this present day, and of all its different voices--the pressing, noisy, complex present, where our workfield lies, the most intricate of all states of society, and of all schools of literature yet known.

- Introductory Lecture, Queen's College. 1848.
We have so many labor-saving devices today that we go broke keeping them repaired. Everything is easier, but requires greater maintenance.

- Sanny, Lorne
Don't think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drive into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark.

- Johnson, Samuel
Language is made out of concrete things. General expressions in non- concrete terms are a laziness, they are talk, not art, not creation. They are the reaction of things on the writer, not a creative act by the writer.

- Ezra Pound
A loafer always has the correct time.

- Hubbard, Kin
Determine never to be idle...It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.

- Thomas Jefferson
Never be entirely idle; but either be reading, or writing, or praying or meditating or endeavoring something for the public good.

- Thomas a Kempis
Lack of pep is often mistaken for patience.

- Hubbard, Kin
Sloth makes all things difficult, but industry, all things easy. He that rises late must trot all day, and shall scarce overtake his business at night, while laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.

- Benjamin Franklin
A great deal of laziness of mind is called liberty of opinion.

We seldom call anybody lazy, but such as we reckon inferior to us, and of whom we expect some service.

- Mandeville, Bernard
There is no fatigue so wearisome as that which comes from lack of work.

- Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
Don't think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drives into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark.

- Samuel Johnson
Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.

- Anne Frank
Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable.

- Chesterfield, Lord
A lazy person, whatever the talents with which he set out, will have condemned himself to second-hand thoughts and to second-rate friends.

- Connolly, Cyril
Turn on the prudent ant thy heedful eyes. Observe her labors, sluggard, and be wise.

- Johnson, Samuel
Far from idleness being the root of all evil, it is rather the only true good.

- Soren Kierkegaard
The present generation, wearied by its chimerical efforts, relapses into complete indolence. Its condition is that of a man who has only fallen asleep towards morning: first of all come great dreams, then a feeling of laziness, and finally a witty or clever excuse for remaining in bed.

- Kierkegaard, S°ren
