“Good things need their time”

The German expression Gut Ding will Weile haben– good things need their time – states that things which are supposed to turn out good will need some time.

This becomes especially clear when important decisions are to be addressed:

“Quality before speed: Merkel pulls the brakes at the introduction of new supervision of European banks.” (Handelsblatt 17.2.2015)

The German handball federation President Bauer: “Quality comes before speed.“ (Lahrer Zeitung 20.6.2014)

“NPD-Ban: Quality before speed.” (Hamburger Abendblatt 9.12.2011)
