laziness

A Quote by Elder Anthony of Optina on god, sacred, spirit, struggle, troubles, spirituality, rewards, victory, enlightenment, and laziness

Of course it would be easier to get to paradise with a full stomach, all snuggled up in a soft feather-bed, but what is required is to carry one's cross along the way, for the Kingdom of God is not attained by enduring one or two troubles, but many!

Elder Anthony of Optina

A Quote by Francesco Petrarca Petrarch on stupidity, laziness, ignorance, and opinions

Believe me, many things are attributed to gravity and wisdom which are really due to incapacity and sloth. Men often despise what they despair of obtaining. It is in the very nature of ignorance to scorn what it cannot understand, and to desire to keep others from attaining what it cannot reach. Hence the false judgments upon matters of which we know nothing, by which we evince our envy quite as clearly as our stupidity.

-Francesco di Petracco

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on business, enthusiasm, knowledge, laziness, men, order, success, and work

Princeton Universtiy, October 13, 1928: In order to be a success in business, there is one thing you must do. You cannot be successful without it. That is WORK. I have not told you anything new. Everyone knows that you cannot be successful in anything without work. Why does not everyone work? Because some lack the one thing that makes men want to work - ENTHUSIASM. That is something no one can give you. You must acquire it yourself, and the only way that you can become enthusiastic about anything is to have a thorough KNOWLEDGE of it. You have never seen an enthusiastic man who was lazy.

Thomas Watson (1874 - 1956)
