    Laziness quotes by:    

Most of us know perfectly well what we ought to do; our trouble is that we do not want to do it.

    Author: Peter Marshall

He lives long that lives well; and time misspent is not lived, but lost. God is better than his promise if he takes from him a long lease, and gives him a free hold of a better value.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

Spill not the morning (the quintessence of the day!) in recreations, for sleep is a recreation. Add not, therefore, sauce to sauce. Pastime, like wine, is poison in the morning. It is then good husbandry to sow the head, which hath lain fallow all night, with some serious work.

    Author: Thomas Fuller

You will not be carried to Heaven lying at ease upon a feather bed.

    Author: Samuel Rutherford

None should expect to prosper who go out of way of duty.

    Author: James H. Aughey

So fixed are our spirits in slothfulness and cold indifference that we seldom overcome so much as one evil habit.

    Author: Thomas a Kempis

People who are lazy, careless, doubtful-minded or arrogant need not expect God to reveal His secret or covenant to them.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Often the children of God cannot rise up to answer the Lord's call to service simply because, though their physical condition is good, their feelings are low, cold, and reluctant. Or even when their emotions are quite high, passionate, and willing, they find themselves unable to serve the Lord because now the body reacts lazily. The disciples found themselves in precisely that situation in the Garden of Gethsemane: "the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak" (Matt. 26:41)

    Author: Watchman Nee

Frequently what we say is rest is merely laziness. Our body requires respite and so does our mind and spirit. But a person should never rest because of a laziness which arises from the evil nature in his emotion. How often laziness and emotional distaste for work join to employ physical fatigue as a cover-up.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Least doers are the greatest boasters.

    Author: William Gurnall

The longer a soul hath neglected duty, the more ado there is to get it taken up.

    Author: William Gurnall
