NEGLIGENCE
[ Also see Accident ]

Negligence is the rust of the soul, that corrodes through all her best resolves.
      - Owen Felltham (Feltham)

A little neglect may breed great mischief. For want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost, being overtaken and slain by the enemy; all for want of a little care about a horse-shoe nail.
      - Benjamin Franklin

The best ground untilled, soonest runs out into rank weeds. A man of knowledge that is negligent or uncorrected, cannot but grow wild and godless.
      - Joseph Hall

Every man has something to do which he neglects, every man has faults to conquer which he delays to combat.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

The heavens, with their everlasting faithfulness, look down on no sadder contradiction than the sluggard and the slattern in their prayers.
      - James Martineau

In persons grafted in a serious trust,
  Negligence is a crime.
      - William Shakespeare
