Thought for Thursday

As I have heaps of quotes, poems, verses and suchlike squirrelled away in various notebooks, and I like to be reminded of them from time to time, I thought I might start a semi-regular Thursday blog post to share one with you. Here's the inaugural thought for Thursday - short, sweet and memorable:

"If you are idle, be not solitary; if you are solitary, be not idle."

Samuel Johnson

That one was at the top of my list, as it has come to mind several times today, having had a very solitary and somewhat idle day. . . I shall endeavour to take heed of its warning and have a much more productive day tomorrow!


  1. I reckon he just means if you do it often :-) Sometimes it's nice to be a little indulgent in a solitary idle day

  2. Yeah, thanks, I feel better already!! Occasional solitary and idle days are pretty good for the soul I reckon ;-) See, much as I love my little family I love my solitary days too. Just got to make sure not too many of those are idle…
