Arabian Wisdom, by John Wortabet, , at sacred-texts.com
Beware of rashness, for it has well been called the Mother of Regrets.
He who acts hastily either makes a blunder, or comes very near it.
He who is deliberate is either right, or very nearly so.
A hasty act comes from the Evil One, and a deliberate act from God.
Haste is the resort of the weak.
