Haste Quotations

Take time for all things: great haste makes great waste.
Benjamin Franklin

Manners require time, and nothing is more vulgar than haste.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Henry David Thoreau

A broad margin of leisure is as beautiful in a man's life as in a book. Haste makes waste, no less in life than in housekeeping. Keep the time, observe the hours of the universe, not of the cars.
Henry David Thoreau

To suffer the penalty of too much haste, which is too little speed.
Plato
