"Be slow to promise but quick to perform." - Quote Meaning


It is always good to deliver your promise. One should not back out from promises.  This quote emphasizes the importance of delivering promises one already made. If a person failed to fulfill the promise given to his close ones, there is a possibility of hurting that relationship. If it's a business, there is a high possibility of losing customers. It is always better to think twice before making a promise than not able to fulfill it later. 




Those that are most slow in making a promise are the most faithful in the performance of it

It cautions us to be wary of those who would quickly make promises, as they may back out of them as quickly as they were made. Those who took the time to think about the task and make sure they could keep the commitment are the ones who tend to be most faithful in completing the task promised.
