Shakespeare Quotations on Sloth
Hereditary sloth instructs me.
The Tempest (2.1.241), Sebastian
Can snore upon the flint, when resty sloth
Finds the down pillow hard.
Cymbeline (3.6.35-7), Belarius
Awake, awake, English nobility!
Let not sloth dim your horrors new-begot.
1 Henry VI (1.1.79-80), Messenger
These cardinals trifle with me; I abhor
This dilatory sloth and tricks of Rome.
Henry VIII (2.4.255-6), King Henry
And to the English court assemble now,
From every region, apes of idleness!
2 Henry VI (4.5.125-6), Henry IV
I rather would entreat thy company
To see the wonders of the world abroad,
Than, living dully sluggardized at home,
Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness.
