Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Haste
 
Running together all about,
The servants put each other out,
Till the grave master had decreed,
The more haste, ever the worst speed.
        Churchill.—The Ghost, Book IV.
  1
Farewell; and let your haste commend your duty.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act I. Scene 2. (The King to his Ambassador.)
  2
Haste thee, Nymph, and bring with thee
Jest and youthful jollity,
Quips and cranks, and wanton wiles,
Nods and becks and wreathed smiles.
        Milton.—L’Allegro, Line 25.
