Where belief is painful we are slow to believe.
My most useful acting tip came from my pal John Wayne. Talk low, talk slow, and don't say too much.
Here's the problem if you keep raising tax rates: You slow down economic growth.
The smells of slow cooking spread around the house and impart a unique warmth matched only by the flavour of the food.
A good, quick, small team can beat a big, slow team any time.
Though men may be deep, mentally they are slow.
I do the same gig. I might change it a little; I might slow it down if I'm in the South. I talk fast, and they're not used to people talking that fast.
The reason for the slow progress of the world seems to lie in a single fact. Every man is born under the yoke, and grows up beneath the oppressions of his age.
John Jay Chapman
The TV is often on in our house, but I really only keep up with three shows: 'American Idol,' 'Modern Family' and 'The Walking Dead.' Sometimes I'll sip red wine - it's a nice way to slow down and relax.
I was very slow in maths, geometry I actually enjoyed.
As for my diet, I try to eat lean, clean and healthy - nothing too surprising. And I avoid too much meat or dairy because they slow you down.
Every day I try to do breathing exercises, meditation, and yoga. These things sound awfully cliche, but they help me slow down and try to point to a truth.
I promised a lot of people I'd slow down when I turned 80.
Death by starvation is slow.
Most people don't know what's happening around them because they're just speeding through life. And before they know it, they're just old. So I just try to slow it down.
If you're impatient while waiting for the bus, tell yourself you're doing 'Bus waiting meditation.' If you're standing in a slow line at the drugstore, you're doing 'Waiting in line meditation.' Just saying these words makes me feel very spiritual and high-minded and wise.

I'm a little slow, so forgive me if I'm inarticulate.
Tax increases slow economic growth. Why would you raise taxes? We need to reform spending, the tens of trillions of unfunded liabilities can never be funded by tax increases, that can only be fixed by reducing spending.
Small, slow growth is the best I expect from an investment. I'm a real saver: frugal - like my parents.
I do genuinely believe that the political system is not linear. When it reaches a tipping point fashioned by a critical mass of opinion, the slow pace of change we're used to will no longer be the norm. I see a lot of signs every day that we're moving closer and closer to that tipping point.
I tried for modelling work but it was a bit slow and that's when I took a part-time job at McDonalds. It gave me income while I was waiting for my big break and at the very least I could eat.
But that is the only thing that slows me down is the system. No one, two or three was big enough to slow me down, only the system. It was the system that slowed me down to make my numbers fall. Not because I am older.
It has now become the doctrine of a large clan of politicians that political honesty is unnecessary, slow, subversive of a man's interests, and incompatible with quick onward movement.

John F. Kennedy
