Additional Information: This quote by journalist Carl Honoré is from his 2005 TED Talk about how slowing down can improve one's quality of life -- even though the general trend is to make everything faster. This quote means that by taking your time with certain activities (such as eating and having sex), your appreciation of these activities grows. Work-related activities can also be improved by slowing down, as you pay more attention and do a better job when you go slower. Even your quality of life in general improves if you slow down the pace of your lifestyle. Watch the full TED Talk here: Carl Honoré - In Praise of Slowness
