Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
He who wins the race is he who stopped to grow the roses.
Life is short and with each generation it seems to be speeding up. To those that are swift for results for their pleasure, life is a constant state of misery that tries to mask the void within with superficial empty things. Nothing cannot fill nothing. You cannot fill this hole by feeding it. The most beautiful things were not always so. They took time to become wonders. Only something you are a part of making grow can fill the hole within. Only time, nurturing, love and dedication can create the lasting connections that lattice over and heal the emptiness. All else is a glimpse at all the things you moved too fast to see their true worth and will never have. Time is not the enemy. Only time wasted without purpose is the thief that robs you of your greatest joys. Slow down, breath and be a part of something you love or life will leave you in the dust.

13 But Jacob said to him, “My lord knows that the children are weak, and the flocks and herds which are nursing are with me. And if the men should drive them hard one day, all the flock will die.
14 Please let my lord go on ahead before his servant. I will lead on slowly at a pace which the livestock that go before me, and the children, are able to endure, until I come to my lord in Seir.”
