Haste Makes Waste
A famous saying goes that haste makes waste, meaning that if someone is too hasty in dealing with problems; mistakes are highly possible to occur. The saying is designed to point out the importance of patience. People should be patient rather than hasty, for haste can lead to severe consequences.
If an enormous building project, like an auditorium, which should take years to construct, is pushed to be finished ahead of schedule, the quality of construction cannot be guaranteed.
