Tuesday Morning Wake-Up Call

sloth

Ask no guarantees, ask for no security,
there never was such an animal.
And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth
which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away.
To hell with that,
shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.

~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451: A Novel

  6. Sloth. That is a picture of one of the seven deadly sins; not taking one day off, but taking every day off.
