If you don't hurry up and let life know what you want, life will damned soon show you what you'll get.
G. K. Chesterton
To hurry through one's leisure is the most unbusiness-like of actions.
Saint Francis de Sales
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.
The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us, and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
One of the great disadvantages of hurry is that it takes such a long time.
Order marches with weighty and measured strides. Disorder is always in a hurry.
Though I am always in haste, I am never in a hurry.
James Freeman Clarke
Never hurry. Take plenty of exercise. Always be cheerful. Take all the sleep you need. You may expect to be well.
To get all there is out of living, we must employ our time wisely, never being in too much of a hurry to stop and sip life, but never losing our sense of the enormous value of a minute.
