“Tradition is the wisdom of the foolish” – Warren Falk

It is intellectually lazy to think something wise only because those before you thought it wise.  It is foolish to assume those who came before you were less lazy than yourself.

This doesn’t mean it is unwise to consider tradition.  It means that to a fool, his traditions are his wisdom and he makes no distinction.
