Haste Makes Waste

“Haste makes waste - how true! how much the cost, / The pitcher’s broken, and the milk is lost; / With basket full, see how the man is toiling, / Quite hard he runs! the fruit is falling: / Look in the distance, and see the slaughter, / Made by running steam-boats o’er the water."—Barber, 1857
