Take your time.


The freedom of the philosopher consists in either moving freely from topic to topic or simply spending years returning to the same topic out of perplexity, fascination and curiosity.

… we might say that to philosophize is to take your time, even when you have no time… as Wittgenstein says, “This is how philosophers should salute each other: ‘Take your time.’ ”

Wittgenstein’s quote comes from Culture and Value, p. 80e.
