"When I talk about a slower pace of life, I don't mean an idle sail far from any stirring breeze, with no adventure beckoning us. if anything is less desirable than a speeded-up life, it is a life of boredom and indifference. When we slow down and train attention at the same time, we are naturally cultivating enthusiasm for every day. We begin to face each task with energy and focus. This is a difficult balance to achieve - not hectic, not too casual - but it is a quality to be cultivated if we want to live at our best."

- Eknath Easwaran, from "Take Your Time"
