Hello Steemians from all nations!
As I think that Proverbs are the wisdom of the nations in its pure form and as my followers number is closely reaching 100, I’ve decided to celebrate this by creating a little contest on Steemit with 5SBD to be won. Hurray!

Original Proverb: Gdy się człowiek spieszy, to się diabeł cieszy.
English translation: When the human is in a hurry, the devil is happy
Country of origin: Poland
Explanation of the wisdom: I can honestly say that most bad things happen to us when we hurry. Whether it’s a car accident, something important you forget to take or you simply act to quickly because you are overexcited. Remaining calm in the stressful situations isn’t easy but in my opinion hurrying very often leads to bad negative outcomes.
I hope that you will enjoy this contest a lot and hopefully we will all learn something new by the end of the day.
There will also be an Extra 1SBD award for the comment with the largest amount of upvotes.
