Too Fast...
Robert Morris, American Freemason, Oct. 15, 1845

Many of out most accomplished Masons do their work and lecturing too fast. A solemn and stately motion is appropriate in Masonry. Every work in the lectures should have the weight and sobriety of a prayer to Deity. Not only should all levity be strictly forbidden, but the very opposite, the profoundest gravity should be cultivated by the officiating Masons. We believe in "memorizing" one's part, but not in repeating it as is from memory. The nearer it sounds like extemporizing the more impressive it will be to the candidate. Avoid the error, of working too fast.
