Robert Lewis Stevension in his essay “An Apology for Idleness” explains the ture of idleness. He says, “Idleness does not consist in doing nothing, but in doing a great deal, not recognized in the dogmatic formularies of the ruling class”. According to Stevenson, “extreme busyness, whether at school or college, Kirk or market, is a symptom of deficient vitality, and a faculty for idleness implies a catholic appetite and a strong sense of persol identity”. In his famous essay on laziness, Christopher Morley writes, “Laziness is always dignified. It is always reposeful”. By philosophical laziness we mean the kind of laziness that is based upon a carefully reasoned alysis of experience. Indolence is not a deficiency or defect. Morley remarks that idleness functions as a home base for our soul. He says that in the contemplative mood our idle mind is awake and unconstrained. When a person is sitting quietly he may be in deep contemplation. Though he is idle, contemplation during such idling often leads one to see the “vision of truth” about our lives in this mundane world.
