In Praise of Idleness Drawings 6 and 7

November 1, 2016

Words from today’s pages:  “The ‘contemplative habit of mind’, which makes the pursuit of such knowledge [valued for its own sake] possible, requires an idleness in which individuals become lighthearted, playful and able to engage in freely chosen activities, which are at the same time constructive and satisfying.”
— Howard Woodhouse, from the Introduction to In Praise of Idleness
