Happy Uposatha – Do Not Be Lazy

104. There are these six dangers associated with idleness. Thinking: “It’s too cold,” one does not work. Thinking: “It’s too hot,” one does not work. Thinking: “It’s too early,” one does not work. Thinking: “It’s too late,” one does not work. Thinking: “I am too hungry,” one does not work. Thinking: “I am too full,” one does not work.

Digha Nikaya III.184
