Being Addicted To Idleness
“There are, young householder, these six evil consequences in being addicted to idleness:
“He does no work, saying:
(i) that it is extremely cold, (ii) that it is extremely hot, (iii) that it is too late in the evening, (iv) that it is too early in the morning, (v) that he is extremely hungry, (vi) that he is too full.
“Living in this way, he leaves many duties undone, new wealth he does not get, and wealth he has acquired dwindles away.”
