Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
When do I stop? When I'm twenty-five? Thirty? Thirty-five? Forty? Or right this minute? Nobody tells you how long you should keep doing something before you give up forever.
—Meg Wolitzer in The Interestings
As terrible as the truth was, there was something restful about it.
—Bree Despain in The Dark Divine
Put off thy cares with thy clothes; so shall thy rest strengthen thy labor, and so thy labor sweeten thy rest.
