Products of our past, without which we are prone to anxiety and disorientation…

October 7, 2012

“I retain too the sense I originally derived from religion, reinforced by a study of history, that we are not flies of a summer living in a continuous present. We are the products of our past, and we are linked to continuities that come to us from our histories. I believe too that people who live without visible reminders and reinforcements of that connection will be prone to anxiety and disorientation.”
