Tradition is the social equivalent of personal habit.
I adore tradition. I cannot stand habit. Simply to repeat is nothing, also to destroy is nothing. Tradition is never interrupted, we are always evolving but never interrupted.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Tradition ist das Ruhekissen der Urteilskraft.
Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay.
