apathy

A Quote by Alexander Pope on apathy, boasts, exercise, laziness, mind, rest, strength, and virtue

In lazy apathy let stoics boast Their virtue fix'd: 't is fix'd as in a frost; Contracted all, retiring to the breast; But strength of mind is exercise, not rest.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)
