I'm doing a project on Idleness, as I have realised I myself am an Idler (in a bad way) and am trying to save myself from my lack of diligence before I die without a legacy. Been reading a bunch of stuff on Idleness written by Idlers, smart peoples them Idlers be.
I was once told by a great master, that no man ever excelled in painting, who was eminently curious about pencils and colours. - Samuel Johnson, The Idler, Sat. 18th Nov. 1758
this is why I can't paint for shit. Thank you Mr. Johnson.
