Idleness


It is idleness that creates impossibilities; and where people dont care to do anything, they shelter themselves under a permission that it cannot be done. - Bishop Robert South

Idleness is an inlet to disorder, and makes way for licentiousness. People who have nothing to do are quickly tired of their own company. - Jeremy Collier

Nine-tenths of the miseries and vices of mankind proceed from idleness. - Thomas Carlyle

The ruin of most men dates from some idle moment. - George S. Hilliard
