Boredom

 

“Against boredom the gods themselves fight in vain.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

 

“The world is eaten up by boredom.  You can’t see it all at once.  It is like dust.  You go about and never notice, you breathe it in, you eat and drink it.  It is sifted so fine, it doesn’t even grit on your teeth.  But stand still for an instant and there it is, coating your face and hands.  To shake off this drizzle of ashes you must be forever on the go.” ~Georges Bernanos

 

“To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.” ~Buddha

 

“To be obsessed with some vision and to have the continuous opportunity of working toward that vision can be looked upon as God’s greatest gift to anyone.” ~Henry Moore

 

“The secret of being miserable is to have leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not.  The cure for it is occupation.”  ~George Bernard Shaw

 

“To be able to fill leisure intelligently is the last product of civilization.” ~Bertrand Russell
