Fine feathers have only surface brilliance.
Muhammed (Essential Sufism)
I saw the camel put on its shirt
And leave without tears for Mecca
With a thousand and one
Sand sellers and
Dark crowds like scaly dragons
But I could not follow them
For sloth won out
Against my ardour
And daily habit resumed
Its disjointed toe-dance”
― Joyce Mansour
gluttony, greed – Wanting and taking too much: food, sex, time, money, comfort, leisure, material possessions, attention, security. Acquiring things (material things, relationships, attention) at the expense of others.
laziness, procrastination, sloth – Not doing as much as is reasonable for us to do. Putting things off repeatedly. Not carrying our own load as much as we are able. Letting others provide things for us that we ought to get for ourselves.
