Gustave Doré
Slothful Penitents (Abbot of St. Zeno)

“In the world sloth … is the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, loves nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing and remains alive only because there is nothing it would die for. We have known it far too well for many years.”

Dorothy Sayers, “The Other Six Deadly Sins”
