    La frase completa de Napoleón fué... "vistanme despacio que voy de prisa"

    "Dress me slowly, I'm in a hurry"

    The sentence means, that whenever you are in a hurry, it is much better to do the things slowly, without getting nervous, you will finish much faster

    Aquí en España siempre se nos enseñó que la frase era de Felipe II, a lo mejor Napoleón se la copió :D

    I agree with you Miguel, I never knew that Napoleon used it as well.

    Too late to ask either of them!!

    Hi,

    Unfortunatley, I do not know who said the phrase, so I cannot help you in this matter:eek::D, but I have always thought the English equivalent was "more haste, less speed", wasn´t it?.

    Cheers.:)
