Bruce Lee
“If you follow the classical pattern, you are understanding the routine, the tradition, the shadow -- you are not understanding yourself.”
Bruce Lee, Tao of Jeet Kune Do

“و به مهمان تعارف مكن و هر ساعت مگوى كه: "اى فلان! نان نيك بخور! هيچ نمى خورى! به جان تو كه شرم مدار" كه از چنين گفتار مهمان شرمزده گردد و نان نتواند خوردن و نيم سير از خوان برخيزد.
و ما را به گيلان رسمى است خوب، چون مهمانى را به خوان برند، خوردنى در ميان خوان بنهند و خداوندخانه از آن جا برود تا مهمانان چنان كه خواهند نان بخورند.”
عنصرالمعالی کیکاوس‌بن اسکندربن قابوس‌

Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

“ليس الزواج عندنا ازدواجا بين قلب وقلب أو إتحادا بين عقل وعقل بل مزاوجة بين مجموعتين من الظروف”
زكي نجيب محمود, أيام في أمريكا

“Successfully functioning in a society with diverse values, traditions and lifestyles requires us to have a relationship to our own reactions rather than be captive of them. To resist our tendencies to make right or true, that which is nearly familiar, and wrong or false, that which is only strange.”
Robert Kegan

Ronald Reagan
“We do not deny any nation's legitimate interest in security. But protecting the security of one nation by robbing another of its national independence and national traditions is not legitimate. In the long run, it is not even secure.”
Ronald Reagan, The Quest for Peace, the Cause of Freedom

Lars Fr. H. Svendsen
“Traditions brings continuity to one’s existence, but this sort of continuity is precisely what has been increasingly lost
throughout modernity.”
Lars Fr. H. Svendsen, A Philosophy of Boredom

Vera Nazarian
“The Gingerbread House has four walls, a roof, a door, a window, and a chimney. It is decorated with many sweet culinary delights on the outside.

But on the inside there is nothing—only the bare gingerbread walls.

It is not a real house—not until you decide to add a Gingerbread Room.

That’s when the stories can move in.

They will stay in residence for as long as you abstain from taking the first gingerbread bite.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

“Cultural and religious traditions that forbid cross-cultural unions prevent peace on earth. Instead of rejoicing that our sons and daughters are heart-driven and love other humans outside of their familiar religious, social or cultural domains, we punish and insult them. This is wrong. Honor killings are not honorable by God. They are driven by ignorance and ego and nothing more. The Creator favors the man who loves over the man who hates. If you think God will punish you or your child for allowing them to marry outside of your tribe or faith, then you do not know God. Love is his religion and the light of love sees no walls. Anybody who unconditionally loves another human being for the goodness of their heart and nothing more is already on the right side of God.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Boria Sax
“Every animal is a tradition, and together they are a vast part of our heritage as human beings. No animal completely lacks humanity, yet no person is ever completely human. By ourselves, we people are simply balls of protoplasm. We merge with animals through magic, metaphor, or fantasy, growing their fangs and putting on their feathers. Then we become funny or tragic; we can be loved, hated, pitied, and admired. For us, animals are all the strange, beautiful, pitiable, and frightening things that they have ever been: gods, slaves, totems, sages, tricksters, devils, clowns, companions, lovers, and far more.”
Boria Sax, The Mythical Zoo: An Encyclopedia Of Animals In World Myth, Legend, And Literature

Ken Liu
“But it's not really Chinese, is it?'
Logan was thoughtful for a moment. "I don't know. I guess you'd say it's really not if you look back thousands of years. But I don't think that way. Lots of things start out not Chinese and end up that way.”
Ken Liu, All the Flavors

Mehmet Murat ildan
“You do not have a mind belongs to yourself! Your thoughts are the thoughts of your culture! When you speak, it is not you but your culture, your religion, your traditions, your political or spiritual leaders speak! If not you but your culture, your religion etc. are speaking on behalf of you, then what are you, who are you? A stupid puppet? Get a mind which belongs to yourself! Only then you will be able to speak with your own thoughts on behalf of your own self!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Elizabeth Gaskell
“The traditions of . . . bygone times, even to the smallest social particular, enable one to understand more clearly the circumstances with contributed to the formation of character. The daily life into which people are born, and into which they are absorbed before they are well aware, forms chains which only one in a hundred has moral strength enough to despise, and to break when the right time comes - when an inward necessity for independent individual action arises, which is superior to all outward conventionalities. Therefore it is well to know what were the chains of daily domestic habit which were the natural leading-strings of our forefathers before they learnt to go alone.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, Ruth

Irène Némirovsky
“Nu limba, legile, obiceiurile sau principiile despart sau unesc ființele, ci felul identic în care țin cuțitul și furculița.”
Irène Némirovsky, Suite Française

“The stranglehold of the departed was much resented by the new generation of aspiring authors. Which is why it is who did make the breakthrough were so admired.”
Andrew Pettegree, Brand Luther: How an Unheralded Monk Turned His Small Town into a Center of Publishing, Made Himself the Most Famous Man in Europe—and Started the Protestant Reformation

“There are men with heart and soul that respect values and tradition then there are men with no heart that are manipulators and couldn't care less about values or tradition they both have friendly faces don't be fooled learn the difference by Bonnie Zackson Koury”
Bonnie Zackson Koury

Greg Gordon
“Are we empty of all the traditions of religious men so that we can learn from the Lord Himself? This is the way of the Lord. God is looking for a Gideon’s army of those that are willing to trust fully in His power and not in any might or power of their own.”
Greg Gordon, Principles for the Gathering of Believers Under the Headship of Jesus Christ

Irvin D. Yalom
“-Nadajduiesc la o lume viitoare fara religii, o lume cu o religie universala, in care toata lumea isi foloseste ratiunea pentru a-l cunoaste si a-l slavi pe Dumnezeu.
-Asta inseamna ca doresti disparitia iudaismului?
-Sfarsitul tuturor traditiilor care se opun dreptului omului de a gandi singur.
Franco tacu cateva momente.
-Bento, esti atat de categoric, ca ma inspaimanti. Aceasta perspectiva imi taie respiratia, ca traditia noastra ar putea sa piara dupa mii de ani de supravietuire.
-Ar trebui sa pretuim lucrurile pentru ca sunt adevarate, nu pentru ca sunt vechi. Vechile religii ne intind o cursa, insistand asipra faptului ca, daca abandonam traditia, ii dezonoram pe toti inaintasii nostri credinciosi. Iar daca vreunul dintre stramosii nostri a fost martirizat, atunci suntem prinsi in capcana si mai tare pentru ca onoarea ne obliga sa perpetuam credintele martirilor, chiar daca stim ca sunt pline de erori si superstitii. N-ai spus tu ca ai simtit asta ca urmare a martiriului tatalui tau?
-Da... ca mi-as bate joc de viata lui daca as renega lucrurile pentru care a murit.
-Dar nu ar fi, de asemenea, lipsit de sens sa-ti dedici singura viata pe care o ai unui sistem fals si plin de superstitii, un sistem care alege un singur popor si exclude toate celelalte fiinte?”
Irvin D. Yalom, The Spinoza Problem

“I am a conformist within reason. I was born with strong beliefs of family tradition as well as honoring the law. I also have a strong sense of respect for the people and places around me. I was taught that our social system was put into place for the better of the people. Well as you get older you realize that is not always the case. I guess you can say I am a hypocrite when it comes to being a Conformist. Although a lot of my traditions and beliefs are part of my foundation of who I am. My frame work some would say. My life experiences are the bricks of the walls as I build my life. It is those life experiences that make me second guess the Social order that is put in to place as for the greater good of the people. That is what makes me a conformist within reason.
I guess you can say I am a righteous nonviolent rebel. I dance to the beat of my own drum. I do not break any laws. But I live in a country that it is against the law to commit a violent crime. Although I live in a world that is rapidly changing I am trying very hard to stay true to my Values and traditions that make me who I am today. And for that I am not a conformist I am a rebel. By Bonnie Zackson Koury”

“Religious traditions and selfish agenda are laid aside when we are poor in spirit”
Sunday Adelaja

Paul Silway
“While there are plenty of 'man-made' traditions that are harmful, it comes as a complete shock to most believers that there are traditions instituted by God that can make His Word of no effect.”
Paul Silway

Iben Dissing Sandahl
“Traditions are important because they connect people. And we all need to feel a part of something bigger. Family values can be converted into powerful routines and create strong and meaningful traditions.
Traditions don´t have to be BIG and time-consuming arrangements, instead it is the atmosphere and energy you decide to put into the arrangement that matters.”
Iben Dissing Sandahl, The Danish Way of Parenting: What the Happiest People in the World Know About Raising Confident, Capable Kids

جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel
“تلاشت الحديقة الحالمة التي كنت أعيش فيها، ولم أعد أبصر أمامي سوى صحراء قاحلة بشعة قاسية، تماثل صحراء التقاليد في المنطقة، صحراء لا وجود لأزهار الحب فيها أبداً، وكل شيء فيها يخضع لقوانين المقايضة والتجارة بين قوافل التجار وتلك القبائل المتناثرة التي لا تعرف شيئاً عن معنى الحياة.”
جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel, صراع الأقنعة

G.K. Chesterton
“It is often said by the critics of Christian origins that certain ritual feasts, processions or dances are really of pagan origin. They might as well say that our legs are of pagan origin. Nobody ever disputed that humanity was human before it was Christian; and no Church manufactured the legs with which men walked or danced, either in a pilgrimage or a ballet. What can really be maintained, so as to carry not a little conviction, is this: that where such a Church has existed it has preserved not only the processions but the dances; not only the cathedral but the carnival. One of the chief claims of Christian civilisation is to have preserved things of pagan origin.”
G.K. Chesterton, The Superstition of Divorce

Simone de Beauvoir
“(…) symbolism did not fall out of heaven or rise out of subterranean depths: it was elaborated like language, by the human reality…”
Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex

“When you show love and empathy to people, you draw them closer to your beliefs and traditions”
Sunday Adelaja

“You must stop living under the pressure of the environment and surrounding and culture and tradition.”
Sunday Adelaja, How To Become Great Through Time Conversion: Are you wasting time, spending time or investing time?

Jean Ray
“Tradition is a detestable peddler of errors, to which, alas, the Devil lends a long and tenacious life.”
Jean Ray, Malpertuis
