Let us be lazy in everything, except in loving and drinking, except in being lazy
Man who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth must wait very, very long time
Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired
Laziness never arrived at the attainment of a good wish


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
