“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability”

“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability” is a summer saying that has been printed on many images.
     
“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability. BERN WILLIAMS” was printed in the Reader’s Digest in 1998. Just above this is a citation from Sam Keen’s book, To Love and Be Loved (1997). American author Sam Keen is often given credit for the saying, but it does not appear in this or any other of Keen’s books.
     
“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability. Bern Williams” was posted on the newsgroup alt.music.leonard-cohen on July 16, 1998. “Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.—Bern Williams” was posted on the newsgroup alt.humor on December 7, 1998. “Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.—Sam Keen, _To Love and Be Loved_” was posted on on the newsgroup alt.quotations on June 30, 2002. No other details are known about Bern Williams and this quotation.
