Alacrity stresses promptness in response to a suggestion or command, cheerful and eager willingness, appropriate quickness, and in general the beginning of fast movement; whereas Velocity implies quickness of motion or rapidity during movement, and Celerity implies speed in accomplishing or completing an action.
