  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 98. The proverb today is

  • "haste makes waste. : Yeah. We still hear this one quite a lot.

  • Any time somebody was rushing too much and they make a mistake. You often hear

  • somebody say. Hey. Be careful haste makes waste. So this one is still quite common.

  • Anyway let's take a look at the note here. This proverb basically means that

  • things that are done in too hurried a manner are usually done in a sloppy way

  • which may lead to mistakes and errors that may cost even more time or even

  • more problems. Okay. Let's continue here. This proverb was first cited in John

  • Heywoods "A dialogue containing the number and effect of all the Proverbs. "

  • printed in 1546. So this is first time they found it. So remember I think I've mentioned him a

  • few other times with some of the Proverbs too. He wrote a book of proverbs.

  • Proverbs at that time. So that doesn't mean that he necessarily created them. He

  • just would make a list of a lot of the proverbs of that day. He kind of

  • explained it. So we had a book in 1546 that did this. And since it is 1546 you

  • know, we still got some kind of like Old English here or you might say

  • Middle English. You know where the spelling is you know, very different. So,

  • so if you see some words like containing for example that's not the way we spell

  • containing today we spoke TAI not a TEI you know, the number of effect all the

  • Proverbs printed in 1546. This was the exact quote and you could see you

  • know some some differences in this quote. Some things that provoke young men to

  • wed in haste show that wedding that haste maketh waste. Okay. So

  • obviously you know, Some, some today is SOME Here it was SOM. Things, things has

  • an I. So some things that provoke that cause

  • young. You know without a U, young men to wed in haste, to marry too soon, to marry

  • too quickly without thinking about it. So that's actually the quote that he was

  • using then. So after wedding after, after they marry. After the wedding day that

  • haste maketh, maketh. We here maketh a lot in Shakespeare you know, it's the

  • old English where you know, basically just means makes waste haste makes waste.

  • Yeah. This is another one basically. This this line itself is almost another

  • proverb. You know don't rush into marriage or remember we had that quote

  • that I covered recently by Benjamin Franklin you know, keep your eyes wide

  • open before marriage and half closed afterwards. Also like don't rush into

  • marriage make sure you making the right decision. So basically he is saying the same

  • thing with haste makes waste . If you rushed into marriage too quickly, you

  • might make a mistake and that's a big mistake. You had better be careful. All right.

  • Anyway, let's look at example number one here. The way we hear it used today. I

  • know the deadline is due soon, but don't rush this. It needs to be done perfectly.

  • Haste makes waste. Yeah. That's just the way we hear it used now. Or number two. Do

  • you see what you made me do now ? I messed it up. Haste makes waste. You know and the

  • person is probably complaining like you were rushing me too much , you were pushing me

  • too much. That's why I messed it up. So kind of blaming the person , but we often

  • will use this phrase in the sentence. Haste makes waste. Anyway , I hope you got

  • it.. I hope it is clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
