James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Saint Jerome
  Pinguis venter non gignit sensum tenuem—A fat paunch does not produce fine sense.    From the Greek.  1
  Facito aliquid operis, ut semper te diabolus inveniat occupatum—Keep doing something, so that the devil may always find you occupied.  2
  Let us learn upon earth those things that can call us to heaven.  3
  Prayer is a groan.  4
  The devil taketh not lightly unto his working such as he findeth occupied in good works.  5
