One thing life has taught me is that rushing/hurrying is almost always counterproductive. Hurrying, as I understand it, involves pushing oneself beyond one’s optimal level. This leads to inefficiency, error and unnecessary stress. Speed is much better accomplished through focus, persistence and economy of action.
I have met some highly intelligent believers, but history has no record to say that [s]he knew or understood the mind of god. Yet this is precisely the qualification which the godly must claim—so modestly and so humbly—to possess. It is time to withdraw our 'respect' from such fantastic claims, all of them aimed at the exertion of power over other humans in the real and material world.
