Thoughts for today:


Nothing is so insufferable to man as to be completely at rest, without passions, without business, without diversion, without study. He then feels his nothingness, his forlornness, his insufficiency, his dependence, his weakness, his emptiness. There will immediately rise from the depth of his heart weariness, gloom, sadness, fretfulness, vexation, despair.

Blaise Pascal, Pensées no. 131



13  The lazy man says, "There is a lion in the road!
  A fierce lion is in the streets!"
14  As a door turns on its hinges,
  So does the lazy man on his bed.

King Solomon, Proverbs 26
