Govern the rhythms of your life

«To be slow means that you govern the rhythms of your life. You are in control of deciding how fast you have to go. Today, you might want to go fast, so you do. Tomorrow, however, you might want to go slow, so you can. That is the difference. It is useless to force the rhythms of life. If I live with the anxiety to go fast, I will not live well. My addiction to speed will make me sick. The art of living is about learning how to give time to each and everything. If I have sacrificed my life to speed, then that is impossible. Ultimately, ‹slow› means to take the time to reflect. It means to take the time to think. With calm, you arrive everywhere.»

Carlo Petrini, Founder Slow Food
