"Show and steady wins the race."
Have these people ever even SEEN race? What kinda race are they talking about? In every race I have ever seen you go as fast as possible. When I eventually have children, and my boy is at the starting line for the first time, want to know what I am going to say?
"GO!!! GO FAST!!! RUN!!!"
Then I am going to laugh at the other parents who are scratching their heads, confused that their boy came dead last going "slow and steady."
