“Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I’ve ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing… Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away.” (Mark Buchanan, The Rest of God: Restoring Your Soul By Restoring Your Sabbath, 2007, p.45.)
Haste can make waste. We should not be afraid of slow, for it can make us grow.
