(Fill In The Blank) vs. Fast



"A good and faithful judge always prefers the honorable to the expedient."



Horace
1st century BC Latin poet

Substitute any number of adjectives for "honorable" and this works in many situations.

Accurate, correct, fair, efficient, timely, effective, etc.

All and more like them, qualities we should emphasize in business more than expedient.

  2. But should it ("speed") be Franklin?

    Is something not done correctly really done?
