Standing Athwart History, Saying "This Way."
"'In a progressive country, change is constant; and the great question is not whether you should resist change, which is inevitable, but whether that change should be carried out in deference to the manners, the customs, the laws and traditions of a people, or whether it should be carried out in deference to abstract principles, and arbitrary and general doctrines.'" (Here.)You know, the American Revolution not the French Revolution.
