What is haste?

Famous quotes containing the word haste:

    Make haste therefore, sweet love, whilst it is prime,
    For none can call again the passed time.

    We quaff the cup of life with eager haste without draining it, instead of which it only overflows the brim—objects press around us, filling the mind with their magnitude and with the throng of desires that wait upon them, so that we have no room for the thoughts of death.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)

    When I meet a government which says to me, “Your money or your life,” why should I be in haste to give it my money?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
