Words to Ponder

"Often, the less there is to justify a traditional custom, the harder it is to get rid of it."

"Sacred cows make the best hamburger."

"A crime persevered in a thousand centuries ceases to be a crime, and becomes a virtue. This is the law of custom, and custom supersedes all other forms of law."

Mark Twain
