The Age speculates about who will be the successor to John Paul II and comments inter alia:

The new pope will surely bring changes, but they are more likely to be slow and incremental than dramatic. The Latin-speaking cardinals will know the dictum of the Roman historian Suetonius: "festina lente" (make haste slowly) - usually the wisest policy in church politics.

Of course, that was supposedly Augustus' favourite saying ... quoted from Publilius Syrus if I recall correctly.
