The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine.
Say, lingering fair! why comes the birth Of your brave soul so slowly forth?Richard Crashaw
Science moves, but slowly slowly, creeping on from point to point.Tennyson
The film moves at what I consider to be the speed of art — which is slow. Cremaster 2 does what I think sculpture does: It moves slowly and requires that one move around it to understand it, and to visit it repeatedly.matthew barney
He who never looks up to a living God, to a heavenly presence, loses the power of perceiving that presence, and the universe slowly turns into a dead machine, clashing and grinding on, without purpose or end. If the light within us be darkness, how great is that darkness!james freeman clarke
I feel in an executioner mood, I am going to punish him and punish him slowly.bernard hopkins
The flip side of the coin was that even good programmers and language designers tended to do terrible extensions when they were in the heat of programming, because design is something that is best done slowly and carefully.alan kay
I don't understand girls, but I'm slowly learning.  They are a pretty amazing bunch... some people have been here for 18 hours, which is... unbelievable! I don't think I would ever wait 18 hours on something, not even an organ, that I needed. I don't think I would wait that long, I would be like, oh fine, never mind...daniel radcliffe
I discovered that the most interesting music of all was made by simply lining the loops in unison, and letting them slowly shift out of phase with other...steve reich
Mathematical analysis is as extensive as nature itself; it defines all perceptible relations, measures times, spaces, forces, temperatures:;; this difficult science is formed slowly, but it preserves every principle which it has once acquired; it grows and strengthens itself incessantly in the midst of the many variations and errors of the human mind. It's chief attribute is clearness; it has no marks to express confused notations. It brings together phenomena the most diverse, and discovers the hidden analogies which unite them.joseph fourier
It is because nations tend towards stupidity and baseness that mankind moves so slowly; it is because individuals have a capacity for better things that it moves at all.george gissing
...in fact, the war against Iraq is continuing. And it's continuing now by the means which the administration described as contemptible and useless, when they were put forth as an alternative to an actual all-out aerial bombardment. Namely, economic sanctions, which do have the effect of slowly starving and crippling the population of Iraq, while leaving the military cast of Saddam Hussein and his criminal Baath Party in charge. I was asked the other day ... why do you think the administration decided to spare Saddam Hussein ... and I said I think because they thought they might need him again...christopher hitchens
I'd sooner die outright, beneath the waves o'erwhelmed, Than on this desert island slowly waste away.homer
There are two ways of extending life : firstly by moving the two points "born" and "died" farther away from one another... The other method is to go more slowly and leave the two points wherever God wills they should be, and this method is for the philosophers.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Society is a system of inherited forms reducing our humiliating passivity to nature. We may alter these forms, slowly or suddenly, but no change in society will change nature.camille paglia
I don't mind your thinking slowly; I mind your publishing faster than you think.wolfgang pauli
The ideal situation for any state is to experience sharp economic growth while its rivals' economies grow slowly or hardly at all.
Architecture , of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul.
Science is the observation of things possible, whether present or past; prescience is the knowledge of things which may come to pass, though but slowly.leonardo da vinci
The autumn days grow short and cold; / It's Christmas time again. / Then snows of winter slowly melt. / The day grows short, / And then... / He turns the seasons around, / And so she changes... her gown: / Mother Earth... and Father Time. / [words are slowly being reduced to a whisper] How very special are we... / For just a moment... to be... / Part of life's... eternal... rhyme.
No slowly Whisper, slowly, slowly....let our diners assemble!
The sun is set, and in his latest beams Yon little cloud of ashen gray and gold, slowly upon the amber air unrolled, The falling mantle of the Prophet seems.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
