They create irrelevant work for everyone. Finally, there are the intelligent lazy ones. They are suited for the highest office.

Always reserve enough time in your day to loaf, relax, and think creative thoughts. This will have much more of a positive effect on your financial and personal well-being than two or three hours of extra work. Not only does loafing take your imagination to greater heights, it's good for your long-term health, because it reduces stress and helps prevent many diseases. Moreover, when you loaf, you are preparing for the time when you achieve enough wealth to take it easy. You are giving yourself a taste of the freedom and prosperity that is coming to you.

The Joy of Not Working by Ernie Zelinski

Prosperity Through The Joy of Not Working

A non-doer is very often a critic — that is,  someone who sits back and watches doers, and then waxes philosophically about how the doers are doing. It's easy to be a critic, but being a doer requires effort, risk, and change.

— Unknown not-so-wise workaholic

I say to hell with the work you have to do to earn a living! That kind of work does us no honor; all it does is fill up the bellies of the pigs who exploit us. But the work you do because you like to do it, because you've heard the call, you've got a vocation — that's ennobling! We should all be able to work like that. Look at me, Saturno — I don't work. And I don't care if they hang me, I won't work! Yet I'm alive! I may live badly, but at least I don't have to work to do it!
— Luis Buñuel

Writing goodbye letters for work in preparation for quitting one's job is much more fun than work itself.

I grew up in New England. I think I was brought up with the Puritan ethic: that if you worked really hard in life, then good would come to you. The harder you work, the luckier you get. I've come to believe that it's the smarter you work, the better.
— Ken Blanchard

Life is too short to do anything for oneself that one can pay others to do for one.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate, so we can buy shit we don't need.
— from the 1999 movie Fight Club

There is no more futile punishment than futile and hopeless labor.
— Albert Camus

Work is an essential part of being alive. Your work is your identity. It tells you who you are. It’s gotten so abstract. People don’t work for the sake of working. They’re working for a car, a new house, or a vacation. It’s not the work itself that’s important to them. There’s such a joy in doing work well.
— Kay Stepkin, U.S. baker, quoted in Working by Studs Terkel

What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it. Who was it who said, "Blessed is the man who has found his work"? Whoever it was he had the right idea in his mind. Mark you, he says his work — not somebody else's work. The work that is really a man's own work is play and not work at all. Cursed is the man who has found some other man's work and cannot lose it. When we talk about the great workers of the world we really mean the great players of the world. The fellows who groan and sweat under the weary load of toil that they bear never can hope to do anything great. How can they when their souls are in a ferment of revolt against the employment of their hands and brains? The product of slavery, intellectual or physical, can never be great.
— Mark Twain

It is always with the best intentions that the worst work is done.
— Oscar Wilde

Work is for cowards.

More men are killed by overwork than the importance of the world justifies.

Measuring busy-ness ... is far easier than measuring business. Busy-ness might feel good (like checking your email on Christmas weekend) but business means producing things of actual value.  Often, the two are completely unrelated.
— Seth Godin, writing on his
Seth's Blog

It is in vain that you rise up early and go
