|C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.|
| Humanity is constitutionally lazy.|
J. G. Holland.
| Laziness breeds humors of the blood.|
| Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.|
| An idler is a watch that wants both hands.|
| The lazy man aims at nothing, and generally hits it.|
| A lazy hand is no argument of a contented heart.|
| Rags will always make their appearance where they have a right to do it.|
| Laziness is a good deal like money, the more a man has of it, the more he seems to want.|
H. W. Shaw.
