This man I know once took me out on his sailboat and, long story, but I had to bring the boat around alongside another boat using a rope. He said to me, as I did this: “Listen. You can’t go too slow. There is no such thing as too slow. You can only go too fast.” And I thought about that for a long time. It’s a nice thing to think about, on the weekends, if you have a sailboat.
