A Quote by May Sarton on instant success, machines, corruption, natural rhythm, hurried, and value

Instant success is the order of the day; "I want it now!"  I wonder whether this is not part of our corruption by machines.  Machines do things very quickly and outside the natural rhythm of the few things that we still do...anything at all that cannot be hurried, have a very particular value.
