Balance -- When to work and when to rest
On this extraordinary beautiful September afternoon I enjoy the fruits of self-employment:
the choice when to work and when to be lazy.
Perfectly in harmony with Oscar who loves to do chores (carrying the mail to the house) but will stretch out under warm sun rays on a late summer day.
Ambition is a poor excuse for not having sense enough to be lazy.
Idleness is not doing nothing. Idleness is being free to do anything.
Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy.
Far from idleness being the root of all evil, it is rather the only true good.
Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
Know when to work and when to rest; balance is the key to health and happiness.
