The Devil finds work for idle hands to do.
Doing nothing is doing evil.
An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.
Lazy people are always wanting to do something.
The busy man is troubled with but one devil; the idle man by a thousand.
Shun idleness. It is a rust that attaches itself to the most brilliant of metals.
The devil tempts all men, but the idle men tempt the devil.
For Satan finds some mischief still For idle hands to do.
To do nothing at all is the most difficult thing in the world, the most difficult and the most intellectual.
It is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top.
