Greek proverb quotes

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
I worry that our current crop of old men are burning the trees for profit, not worrying about where the following generation will find shade.

Act quickly, think slowly.
I remind myself of this when I get anxious to act but I'm not yet done thinking.

Leap before you look, I always say. And shoot first, skip the questions.
