Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master Friar Laurence has accepted to marry Romeo and Juliet in secret, thinking that this union could bring peace between their two families. Romeo then tells him that he must hurry, to which Friar Laurence replies that wisdom commands us not to act in haste, because it is by going too fast that we risk falling.
