On ne peut penser et ecrire qu’assis.” -Gustave Flaubert

[*one can't think and write unless one is seated]

“Now I’ve got you, you nihilist! Ass-iduity is the sin against the Holy Spirit. Only thoughts that come by walking have any value.” -Friedrich Nietzsche

[ass-iduity : Sitzfleisch literally means "sitting-flesh" or buttocks. Metaphorically it means assiduity, diligent effort.]
