When it comes to that extra rich chocolate cake the waiter just brought, take it slow. When out for your morning walk, make it brisk. When it come to taping a cheetah to your grandma’s back so she will be faster, honey, you’d better get out of grandma’s way because you are in big trouble.

You want to savor this moment. You’ve imagined it for so long. He wants to rush, you take it slow, tinkle in your eye. Handing over the diploma, the next chapter begins too quickly.
