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.
Edgar Bergen

Idleness is not doing nothing. Idleness is being free to do anything.
Floyd Dell

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy.
Mahatma Gandhi

Far from idleness being the root of all evil, it is rather the only true good.
Soren Kierkegaard

Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
Jules Renard

Know when to work and when to rest; balance is the key to health and happiness.

Oh I love these quotes...
and I'm glad there is someone else out there who CELEBRATES being lazy instead calling it a fault.

thank you!

Love the pictures..really cute..Like all the sayings..Jules Renard's saying was the one that hit me..sometimes, I run around and end up doing nothing..even though I had great plans..hate those days.
