I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
—Jerome K. Jerome
Men are generally idle, and ready to satisfy themselves, and intimidate the industry of others, by calling that impossible which is only difficult.
It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do.
Far from idleness being the root of all evil, it is rather the only true good.
Idleness is not doing nothing. Idleness is being free to do anything.
I have discovered that all human evil comes from this, man's being unable to sit still in a room.
