IDLE HANDS ARE THE DEVIL'S TOOLS - "Idleness is the root of mischief. This maxim has been traced back to Chaucer's 'Tale of Melibee' (c. 1386). First attested in the United States in 'Collections' (1808). The proverb is found in varying forms: Satan has some mischief for idle hands to do; The devil finds work (or mischief) for idle hands to do." From "Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings" by Gregory Y. Titelman (Random House, New York, 1996).
"An idle brain is the devil's workshop." It is probably an English proverb.
It does not exist. the text reads an idle MIND is the devils workshop but the Living Bible (a popular paraphrase) does use this phrase in Proverbs 16
It means that when you have nothing to do (your hands are idle), you are more apt to get into trouble. (do devil's work.) (As opposed to staying busy, whereby you have no time to get into trouble.)
It is not biblical but secular. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop" and it's from H.G. Bohn's, "Hand-Book of Proverbs," 1855
Season Four "The Devils Hands are Idle Playthings", it was also the last episode until it was brought back on comedy central.
The duration of Idle Hands is 1.53 hours.
Hope you have small hands and the right tools.
