Slow Quotes

No man ever reached to excellence in any one art or profession without having passed through the slow and painful process of study and preparation

Horace

Perfection is attained by slow degrees; it requires the hand of time.

Fran┴ois Voltaire

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.

Seneca

Confidence is a plant of slow growth; especially in an aged bosom

Samuel Johnson

Friendship is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.

George Washington

No man ever reached to excellence in any one art or profession without having passed through the slow and painful process of study and preparation.

Horace

Our growing ability to eliminate the slow-moving aspects of entertainment and go hopping from one peak to another is not without cost. Stand-up comics, movie-makers and others who earn their living entertaining no longer "waste" time with setups and plot development, lest we reach for the remote and click them off our screen. The result is a loss of subtlety, anticipation and nuance and, in the process, a coarsening of our discourse.

William Raspberry

I certainly haven't been shopping for any new shoes, And I certainly haven't been spreading myself around I still only travel by foot, and by foot it's a slow climb But I'm good at being uncomfortable, So I can't stop changing all the time.

Fiona Apple Maggart

And love runs down like this Water, love runs down. How slow life is, How violent hope is.

Guillaume Apollinaire

I believe we have a responsibility not only to our contemporaries but also to future generations a responsibility to preserve resources that belong to them as well as to us, and without which none of us can survive. That means we must do much more, and urgently, to prevent or slow down climate change. Everyday that we do nothing, or too little, imposes higher costs on our children and our childrens children. Of course, it reminds me of an African proverb the earth is not ours but something we hold in trust for future generations. I hope my generation will be worthy of that trust.

Kofi Atta Annan

Reader, if thou to credit what is here Art slow, 'tis no surprise, since I can scarce Believe, who saw it all as clear as clear.

Durante degli Alighieri

There are times of great change, times when old landmarks are being upset, when submerged forces are rising, and just as we deal promptly or linger over the solution of these problems, our progress will be rapid or slow, sound or broken... The problem is put to us one by one, to each nation one by one... He has shown us the possibility of strength within us, and then He has shown us where the danger, the weakness lies. He is pointing out to us how is it that we may become strong. On us it lies ... to answer the question which God has put to us, and according as we answer on it depends how this movement will progress, what route it will take, and whether it will lead to a swift and sudden salvation, or whether, after so many centuries of tribulation and sufferings there is still a long period of tribulation and suffering before us. God has put the question to us and with us entirely it lies to answer.

Sri Aurobindo

The game minus slow bowling is like bread without butter or, even worse, French cuisine without the sauces.

Trevor Bailey

"Thinking is seeing," said he one day, carried away by some objection raised as to the first principles of our organisation."Every human science is based on deduction, which is a slow process of seeing by which we work up from the effect to the cause; or, in a wider sense, all poetry like every work of art proceeds from a swift vision of things."

Honor de Balzac

The cine-camera and television set allow us to perceive slow motion. The concept of anything other than real time had never occurred to anybody until the first slow-motion movies were shown, and this radically altered people's perceptions of nature.

James Graham Ballard

The film moves at what I consider to be the speed of art which is slow. Cremaster 2 does what I think sculpture does: It moves slowly and requires that one move around it to understand it, and to visit it repeatedly.

Matthew Barney

In art there are only fast or slow developments. Essentially it is a matter of evolution, not revolution.

Bla Bartk

Instant gratification is not as good as that gratification which comes dripping slow, over the sere seasons.

Donald Barthelme

It seems to be really happening. I mean, my parents are using Linux. The setup is still the tricky point, but I set the machine up last time I was in France and they've been actually catching on and start to use it. They like OpenOffice, they like having GAIM and Firefox, they're really happy with that. My brother-in-law, who's really a Windows guy, just decided to install Linux because he was tired of his machine being slow and spyware and everything. He really didn't need that much help from me to get his stuff running, doing mail and chatting and all that basic web stuff, so I guess it's really picking up.

Timothee Besset

We all fall. So may I send you four blessings: older wine, younger lovers, faster cars, and a slow descent.

Drake

Baby you winter time cold. The night is still young, drink that dinner wine slow.

Drake

The court has overseen the slow but steady consolidation of the rule of law and democracy in Central and Eastern Europe. Much remains to be done, but the court can be proud of what it has achieved over the past 10 years.

Sir Nicolas Duan Bratza
