Odd Verses

Been thinking about one of Aesop's Fables, The Hare and the Tortoise, and wondered whether there was a Proverb that talked about the idea of not rushing. Found one in 19:2 that talks about not being hasty.

I have to say some of the Proverbs are out there, take this one for example (27) that I remember an older man quoting when his wife was irritating him one day (they're quite up-front with each other):

15 A quarrelsome wife is like
a constant dripping on a rainy day;

16 restraining her is like restraining the wind
or grasping oil with the hand.
