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.
— St. Francis de Sales
Our sense of God’s presence is often in inverse proportion to the pace of our lives.
— Richard Swenson
To climb steep hills requires a slow pace at first.
— William Shakespeare
Slow down. It requires a shift in focus from the demanding task at hand, and you may have to remind yourself about what your priorities really are, but your whole family will benefit. The dishes may sit in the sink a little longer, or that load of laundry may go undone for another day, but were they really more important than sharing a bedtime story with your preschooler and talking about her day?
— Judy Ford
