Old printers in Venice in the early days of printing had a motto- FESTINA LENTE (translated: HURRY SLOWLY.)
At first glance a contradictory and nonsensical motto but when was doing purely rational?
A recognition of the painstaking and precise work needed to prepare a book for printing and recognition of deadlines and need to get things finished.
It seems a sound attitood to most things.
