Tradition and traditionalism

"Tradition is the living faith of dead people to which we must add our chapter while we have the gift of life. Traditionalism is the dead faith of living people who fear that if anything changes, the whole enterprise will crumble."

-Jaroslav Pelikan
20th century theologian

Wow, interesting quote! Hmmm, I don't want to live by traditionalism!! I want to keep flexible, changing and growing in all areas of my life!
