Make Haste Slowly.

Life is good for only two things, discovering mathematics and teaching mathematics.
The great difficulty in education is to get experience out of ideas.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; wisdom and instruction fools despise.
There be some sports are painful, and their labor delight in them sets off.
--William Shakespeare (The Tempest)
