„Doing less meaningless work, so that you can focus on things of greater personal importance, is NOT laziness. This is hard for most people to accept, because our culture [American] tends to reward personal sacrifice instead of personal productivity.“

—  Timothy Ferriss, livro The 4-Hour Workweek

„Choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.“

—  Bill Gates American business magnate and philanthropist 1955

Sometimes quoted with "difficult" instead of "hard".
A similar thought was expressed by automobile executive Clarence Bleicher in 1947 (before Bill Gates was born): "if you get a tough job, one that is hard, and you haven’t got a way to make it easy, put a lazy man on it, and after 10 days he will have an easy way to do it".
