QOTD — Gangleri’s Grove

“Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.” – Gustav Mahler. A very nice quote posted by Gangleri’s Grove. I would add to this that for our traditions, who have been long suppressed and are now once more starting to grow, that “Reconstructionism is not the worship of ashes, but the rekindling of a flame from a smouldering ember.”

    Loved the quote.
    Practising the tradition is what keeps it alive rather than keeping it embalmed in the museum.
