Quote


“Tradition is the living faith of the dead, traditionalism is the dead faith of the living. And, I suppose I should add, it is traditionalism that gives tradition such a bad name.” --Jaroslav Jan Pelikan

I do not know who Mr. Pelikan is but I wish his kind were not such a rare bird.

I haven't read him - aside from this quote - but he wrote The Vindication of Tradition. It's definitely worth checking out.
