“The sluggard says, ‘There is a lion in the road, a fierce lion roaming the streets!'”
What this proverb means is that lazy people always have an excuse not to do something. They fabricate the pitfalls and dangers of any plan. The sluggard won’t walk down the road, or even leave the house, because there could be a danger outside. Sadly, I know the sluggard well. It’s one of the aspects of my character that I have to change.
