Leisure

Mary Wilson Little:

There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is in having lots to do—and not doing it.

Vernon Lee:

Leisure requires the evidence of our own feelings, because it is not so much a quality of time as a peculiar state of mind—What being at leisure means is more easily felt than defined.

Margaret Mead:

Leisure and the cultivation of human capacities are inextricably interdependent

Marie-Jeanne Roland:

People who know how to employ themselves, always find leisure moments, while those who do nothing are forever in a hurry.

Margaret Mead and Rhoda Metraux:

What we lack is not so much leisure to do as time to reflect and time to feel. What we seldom “take” is time to experience the things that we have happened, the things that are happening, the things that are still ahead of us.

Peg Bracken:

People would have more leisure time if it weren’t for all the leisure-time activities that use it up.

Natalie Clifford Barney:

How many inner resources one needs to tolerate a life of leisure without fatigue.
