Ther nis no werkman, whatsoevere he be, That may bothe werke wel and hastily.

Geoffrey Chaucer, The Canterbury Tales|The Canterbury Tales, "The Merchant's Tale|The Merchant's Tale"

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

Max Ehrmann|Max Ehrmann, "Desiderata|Desiderata" (1927)

Eric Hoffer, Reflections on the Human Condition (1973), § 156

Though I am always in haste, I am never in a hurry.

John Wesley (1703–1791). Letter to a member of the Society, 10th December 1777, Select Letters (1837)

Haste makes waste.
