Haste

These three, Beggars, should not resort to haste:
 
The King,
A Woman,
A Beggar.

For, if the King resorts to haste, there will be those who know:
 
"Now the King cannot be conquered.
Now the King is vulnerable to attack."
 
If a woman resorts to haste there will be those who know:
 
"Now this woman goes to her husband.
Now this woman goes to her lover.";
 
If a Beggar restorts to haste there will be those who know:
 
"Now this Beggar's power is waxing strong.
Now this Beggar's power is on the wane."
