The only thing the pleasure of loafing requires is a creative emptiness, a life enjoyed as it is lived


The philosophical refined pleasure in the art of loafing is something, which costs much less than the lust of luxury.

The only thing the pleasure of loafing requires is a creative emptiness, a life enjoyed as it is lived. 

Play without reason; travel to see nothing; a perfectly useless afternoon spent in a perfectly useless manner – these are the kind of activities that redeem the art of living from the business of living, which also Henry David Thoreau has shown in his Walden, where he describes his life in the woods, retired from the world´s ups and downs.
