Anthony de Mello

An affluent industrialist said to the Master, "What do you do for a profession?"

"Nothing," said the Master.

The industrialist laughed scornfully. "Isn't that laziness?"

"Heavens no. Laziness is mostly the vice of very active people."

Later the master said to his disciples, "Do nothing and all things will be done through you. Doing nothing really takes a lot of doing. Try it!"
