Slowness

Quote 2719

Quote 2718

Quote 2717

Quote 2715

Many of the people I work with both in my coaching work and in workshops talk about being regarded as slightly 'mad' by their work colleagues or even family. I have always found this a rather curious kind of accusation to level at people who are looking for a better way to be and a better way to live. Who are the mad ones, the ones looking for answers and being true to themselves or their accusers? Our society conditions us very successfully to see its ways and rules as the only option and everything else as some kind of aberration. Those who are heavily invested in the system are bound to also be strong defenders of it and are likely to be critical of those who challenge the system -Neil Crofts

Quote 2714

Make haste slowly - Augustus

Quote 2713

I'm a slow walker, but I never walk back - Abraham Lincoln

Quote 2712

Quote 2711

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew - Saint Francis de Sales

Quote 2710

Haste in every business brings failure - Herodotus
