Quote of the Day
Food, in the end, in our own tradition, is something holy. It's not about nutrients and calories. It's about sharing. It's about honesty. It's about identity.
Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.

One tradition I have with my friends is that when one of us gets married, we have a ton of fragrance oils and pretty bottles at the bachelorette party. Everyone puts a drop or two in a bottle for the bride and makes a wish, and the bride wears our creation on her wedding day.
When a tradition gathers enough strength to go on for centuries, you don't just turn it off one day.
Tradition becomes our security, and when the mind is secure it is in decay.
Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Science and technology revolutionize our lives, but memory, tradition and myth frame our response.
Arthur M. Schlesinger
The truth is that killing innocent people is always wrong - and no argument or excuse, no matter how deeply believed, can ever make it right. No religion on earth condones the killing of innocent people; no faith tradition tolerates the random killing of our brothers and sisters on this earth.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition.
America's freedom of religion, and freedom from religion, offers every wisdom tradition an opportunity to address our soul-deep needs: Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, secular humanism, agnosticism and atheism among others.

It was easy to persecute me without people feeling ashamed.

Carter G. Woodson
There's an academic tradition called the 'Last Lecture.' Hypothetically, if you knew you were going to die and you had one last lecture, what would you say to your students? Well, for me, there's an elephant in the room. And the elephant in the room, for me, it wasn't hypothetical.

Most painting in the European tradition was painting the mask. Modern art rejected all that. Our subject matter was the person behind the mask.
