Saunter Not

Ne'er a time for sauntering.

... I hope you employ your whole time, which few people do; and that you put every moment to, profit of some kind or other. I call company, walking, riding, etc., employing one's time, and, upon proper occasions, very usefully; but what I cannot forgive in anybody is sauntering, and doing nothing at all, with a thing so precious as time, and so irrecoverable when lost.

- Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Letters to His Son
