Martin Farquhar Tupper Quote

If the mind is wearied by study, or the body worn with sickness,
It is well to lie fallow for a while, in the vacancy of sheer amusement ;
But when thou prosprest in health, and thine intellect can soar untired,
To seek uninstructive pleasure is to slumber on the couch of indolence.


Of Recreation. - Proverbial Philosophy (1838-1849)
