12. Sloths in Culture

12.1 Sloth Quotes

“Every move a sloth makes is with purpose, which is more than most of us can say about 90% of the time.”

Ann Burton

“The sloth lives his life upside down. He is perfectly comfortable that way. If the blood rushes to his head, nothing happens because there is nothing to work on.”

Will Cuppy

“Stuff your eyes with wonder,” he said, “live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that,” he said, “shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.”

― Ray Bradbury

“Sloths move at the speed of congressional debate but with greater deliberation and less noise.”

–P.J. O’Rourke
