Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed.
Sometimes fifteen minutes is all it takes for your entire life to change.
—Bella Andre in It Must Be Your Love
I think God's going to come down and pull civilization over for speeding.
A camel makes an elephant feel like a jet plane.
The backbone of surprise is fusing speed with secrecy.
When there is no desire to satisfy yourself, there is no aggression or speed . . . Because there is no rush to achieve, you can afford to relax. Because you can afford to relax, you can afford to keep company with yourself, you can afford to make love with yourself, to be friends with yourself.
—Carlos Castaneda in The Teachings of Don Juan
Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.
