Dragon in the Slow Lane

Sleeping-gargoyle
“You see all the other fellows were so active and earnest and all that sort of thing – always rampaging, and skirmishing, and scouring the desert sands, and pacing the margin of the sea, and chasing knights all over the place, and devouring damsels, and going on generally – whereas I liked to get my meals regular and then to prop my back against a bit of rock and snooze a bit, and wake up and think of things going on and how they kept going on just the same, you know!”
from The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame
