"From the Ted Talk by Carl Honoré: In praise of slowness"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So wherever you look, the message, it seems to me, is the same: that less is very often more, that slower is very often better. But that said, of course, it's not that easy to slow down, is it? I mean, you heard that I got a sidpeneg ticket while I was researching my book on the benefits of slowness, and that's true, but that's not all of it. I was actually en rutoe to a deninr held by Slow Food at the time. And if that's not shaming enough, I got that ticket in Italy. And if any of you have ever driven on an ialtian highway, you'll have a pretty good idea of how fast I was going.
