TRADITION
[ Also see Antiquity Custom Habit Innovation Manners Mythology Precedent ]

Tradition is an important help to history, but its statements should be carefully scrutinized before we rely on them.
      - Joseph Addison

What an enormous "camera-obscura" tradition! How a thing grows in the human memory, in the human imagination, when love, worship, and all that lies in the human heart, is there to encourage it; and in the darkness in the entire ignorance, without date or document, no book, no Arundel marble, only here and there some dull monumental cairn!
      - Thomas Carlyle

The dead governs the living.
      - Auguste Comte

We are not abandoning our convictions, our philosophy or traditions, nor do we urge anyone to abandon theirs.
      - Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev

Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay.
      - Jiddu Krishnamurti

There is only one thing better than tradition and that is the original and eternal life out of which all tradition takes its rise.
      - James Russell Lowell

Tradition does not mean that the living are dead, it means that the dead are living.
      - Harold Macmillan

Traditionalists are pessimists about the future and optimists about the past.
      - Lewis Mumford

To follow imperfect, uncertain, or corrupted traditions, in order to avoid erring in our own judgment, is but to exchange one danger for another.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

Tradition wears a snowy beard.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

To do things today exactly the way you did them yesterday saves thinking.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson
