“I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.”
Jerome K. Jerome

“Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.”
Jerome K. Jerome, Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow

“I can't sit still and see another man slaving and working. I want to get up and superintend, and walk round with my hands in my pockets, and tell him what to do. It is my energetic nature. I can't help it.”
Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat
