Hurry Quotations

You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
Walter Hagen

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
Saint Francis de Sales

Patience doesn't mean making a pact with the devil of denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that's unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.
Sharon Salzberg

Just be patient. Let the game come to you. Don't rush. Be quick, but don't hurry.

Never hurry. Take plenty of exercise. Always be cheerful. Take all the sleep you need. You may expect to be well.
