Yesterday I happened to see the control panel on a cherry
picker/aerial lift. The speed control had no text. Instead there were
two images - a hare at the top and a tortoise at the bottom. In
between was a bar that tapered from top to bottom.

Since the tortoise in the fable wins the race, maybe the images send
a subtle message to get going but take it slow?
