Nec Cito, Nec Temere

Here is today's distich by Michele Verinus:

Nec Cito, Nec Temere
Iudicium praeceps insani iudicis index;
Omnia sunt longis discutienda moris.

Here is the vocabulary:

nec - and not, nor
nec...nec... - neither...nor...
cito - swiftly, quickly
temere - rashly
iudicium - judgment
praecepts - hasty, headlong
insanus - insane, demented, wild
iudex - judge
index - sign, token, proof
omnis - all, every
sum - be, exist
longus - long, lengthy
discutio - strike, shake, plead a case
mora - delay
