Great Sentences

Idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets.

And this:

Our frantic days are really just a hedge against emptiness.

And finally:

I am not busy. I am the laziest ambitious person I know.

These, and more, great sentences are from Tim Kreider’s post The ‘Busy’ Trap in yesterday’s Opinionator blog.
