Nicholas Sparks
“Strange, what being forced to slow down could do to a person.”
Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

Alexandra Potter
“And so taking the long way home through the market I slow my pace down. It doesn't come naturally. My legs are programmed to trot briskly and my arms to pump up and down like pistons, but I force myself to stroll past the stalls and pavement cafes. To enjoy just being somewhere, rather than rushing from somewhere, to somewhere. Inhaling deep lungfuls of air, instead of my usual shallow breaths. I take a moment to just stop and look around me. And smile to myself.
For the first time in a long time, I can, quite literally, smell the coffee.”
Alexandra Potter, The Two Lives of Miss Charlotte Merryweather

Patti Digh
“Sometimes our stop-doing list needs to be bigger than our to-do list.”
Patti Digh, Four-Word Self-Help: Simple Wisdom for Complex Lives

Oriah Mountain Dreamer
“Sometimes I think there are only two instructions we need to follow to develop and deepen our spiritual life: slow down and let go.”
Oriah Mountain Dreamer, The Dance: Moving To the Rhythms of Your True Self

Holly Mosier
“Perfection of effort is not required, by the way. It is the consistency of attempting to work these tools that brings the progress. It’s like anything else. If I want to tone muscle, lifting a ten-pound weight a few times every day will move me toward my goal much quicker than hoisting a fifty-pound barbell once a week. Yes, it really is true: “Slow and steady wins the race.” Just try a little, every day. You’ll see.”
Holly Mosier

Santosh Kalwar
“LSD stands out for learning to slow down.”
Santosh Kalwar

“In truth I suspect that merely slowing down is not a very satisfying answer. What I need has less to do with my pace of life than my peace of life. At any speed, I crave a deep and lasting inner peace. And if it's solace I'm after, I don't need to pace myself like a turtle, change jobs or set up house on a quiet island. It is usually frenetic living, not high energy, that robs my peace of mind.”
Steve Goodier

Hugh Howey
“Wisely and slowly; they stumble that run fast.”
Hugh Howey, Wool Omnibus

“The Answer of All your challenges is IN you! Slow down, stop, breathe, listen... Can you hear the answer?? The answer (as we know you know) is already within you - shhhh listen..... do you hear your heart speaking 2U? When we stand firm in the KNOWING of our inner heart value -we are UNSTOPPABLE!”
Angie Karan Krezos

“Go for a walk outdoors. Reconnect with the feeling of the wind blowing through your hair. Listen to the birds that live in a tree in your yard. Watch the sunset. Take time to smell the flowers that bloom in the park during the summer. The natural world is just as natural as it ever was, except there's less of it than there was twenty-five years ago - and most of us don't make a point of enjoying it often enough.”
Skye Alexander, The Modern Guide to Witchcraft: Your Complete Guide to Witches, Covens, and Spells

Debasish Mridha
“Speed of life is a killer not a healer,
so slow down to bloom like a flower.”
Debasish Mridha

“I don't need to be dead to see something like that. Besides, I know you pretty well by now. You better slow down before you run out of eligible men. This is a small town.”
J.J. Cook

Israelmore Ayivor
“Nothing is so rewarding than the patience that you take to go over the ramps of life. They may slow you down, but you are an unstoppable hero. Keep driving!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Joe Plumeri
“Maybe every once in a while we can take a break from doing everything faster and quicker to reflect on who we are and where we are going.”
Joe Plumeri, The Power of Being Yourself: A Game Plan for Success--by Putting Passion into Your Life and Work

“I don't do hurry I don't do worry.”
Karen Salmansohn

Israelmore Ayivor
“Compete with yourself; you have no knowledge about the degree of gifting others might have. Don't decide to slow down because you have gone too far and everyone is behind you!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365

Alex Morritt
“Age is a seasoned trickster. To our parents, we will always be children. Within ourselves, the same yearnings of youth; the same aspirations of adolescence, will last a lifetime. Only to the young - blinded by our grey hair and slowing gait - do we appear old and increasingly beyond the pale.”
