Honoring Our Roots


There are two lasting bequests we can give our children
One is roots, the other is wings.
- Hodding Carter

Traditions are the guideposts driven deep in our subconscious minds.
The most powerful ones are those we can't even describe,
aren't even aware of.
- Ellen Goodman

Civilization is not a spontaneous generation
with any race or nation known to history,
but the torch to be handed down from race to race from age to age.
- Kelly Millar

Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches,
letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights.
- Pauline R. Kezer

I prefer to choose which traditions to keep and which to let go.
- Theodore Bikel

All major religious traditions
carry basically the same message,
that is love, compassion and forgiveness.
The important thing is they should
be part of our daily lives.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Honor tradition AND question tradition.
Tradition is like a second-hand store.
It is best to sort carefully between the treasures and the trash.
See everything with new eyes.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
