7266. REPOSE, Evils of.—

Your love of
repose will lead, in its progress, to a suspension
of healthy exercise, a relaxation of mind,
an indifference to everything around you, and
finally to a debility of body, and hebetude of
mind, the farthest of all things from the happiness
which the well-regulated indulgences of
Epicurus ensure.—
To William Short. Washington ed. vii, 140. Ford ed., x, 145.
(M. 1819)
