from The Century Dictionary.
- Not having leisure; occupied.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
On the contrary, Pieper wrote with a glittering simplicity--for once a genuinely "deceptive simplicity"--but the tintinnabulation of unleisured life deafens us to such quiet dignity.
The only kind of work founded on "leisure" -- which does in our day not merely increase the advantages of already well-off persons, but actually filter down to help the unleisured producers of our wealth -- is not the work of the artist, but of the doctor, the nurse, the inventor, the man of science; who knows?
