A quote that’s right up our alley — “Slow motion gets you there faster” — it’s from  Hoagy Carmichael (1899-1981), composer (“Stardust,” “Georgia on My Mind”).

This quote came to mind recently when we were reading about the Boston Marathon and the bombing — and noticed pictures of the Tortoise and Hare sculpture in Copley Square.


The tortoise and hare were chosen as a metaphor for those runners whose only goal is to finish — finishing gives them a wonderful feeling of accomplishment.

Many of these runners end up walking, not running, over the finish line. Persistence pays off. Slow and steady gets them to their goal.

We’ll be adding the quote to the scroll that’s near the top of our Home Page.
