Plough deep while sluggards sleep.
— Benjamin Franklin

The sluggard does not plow after the season, so he begs during the harvest and has nothing. Proverbs 20:4
Bible sluggard quote

Go to the ant, thou sluggard, learn to live, and by her busy ways, reform thy own.
— Elizabeth Smart

'Tis the voice of the sluggard; I heard him complain, you have waked me too soon, I must slumber again.
— Isaac Watts

I review novels to make money, because it is easier for a sluggard to write an article a fortnight than a book a year, because the writer is soothed by the opiate of action, the crank by posing as a good journalist, and having an air hole. I dislike it. I do it and I am always resolving to give it up.
— sluggard quotation by Cyril Connolly
