sloth

A Quote by May Sarton on sin, sloth, contemplation, productivity, and value

"I always forget how important the empty days are, how important it may be sometimes not to expect to produce anything, even a few lines in a journal. A day when one has not pushed oneself to the limit seems a damaged damaging day, a sinful day. Not so! The most valuable thing one can do for the psyche, occasionally, is to let it rest, wander, live in the changing light of a room."

A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on apathy, self-satisfaction, sloth, and destroyers of nations

“I have named the destroyers of nations: comfort, plenty, and security - out of which grow a bored and slothful cynicism, in which rebellion against the world as it is, and myself as I am, are submerged in listless self-satisfaction.”

John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968)
