Good Reasons for Haste

Peg Bracken, in the I Hate to Cook Almanack

There are good reasons for doing some things fast: because life is crowding in hard, and if the thing isn't done fast it won't be done at all, or because doing it isn't half so rewarding as doing something else. Therefore, iron fast so you can paint slow. Shop fast so you can sew slow. Cook fast so you can spend some time with a child before it disappears into an adult.
