True dispatch is a rich thing, for time is the measure of business, as money is of wares; and business is bought at a dear hand where there is small dispatch.
Measure not dispatch by the times of sitting, but by the advancement of business.
To choose time is to save time.—There be three parts of business—the preparation, the debate or examination, and the perfection; whereof if you look for dispatch let the middle only be the work of many and the first and last the work of few.
Dispatch is the soul of business.
Our only safe rule is, "Whatsoever our hand findeth to do, to do it with all our might."—Let it be a subject of daily prayer, as well as an object of daily endeavor, to do our right work at the right time.
Use dispatch.—Remember that the world only took six days for its creation,—Ask me for whatever you please except time; that is the only thing which is beyond my power.
If it were done when it is done then it were well it were done quickly.
