Idleness

Via Bertrand Russell’s amusing “In Praise of Idleness

“Every one knows the story of the traveler in Naples who saw twelve beggars lying in the sun (it was before the days of Mussolini), and offered a lira to the laziest of them. Eleven of them jumped up to claim it, so he gave it to the twelfth.”

Excellent.

A lesson in that perhaps?
